Arkansas MMA Fans Get Punked By ‘Bruno’


A couple days ago, BloodyElbow passed along a news story about two local MMA events in Arkansas last month — “Red, White, and Blood” in Texarkana and “Blue Collar Brawlin’” in Fort Smith — that devolved into homoerotic spectacles, much to the displeasure of their audiences. It appeared to be the work of Sacha Baron Cohen, the Borat comedian who’s currently filming a movie based on another one of his characters, a gay Austrian fashion reporter named Bruno. In both cases, fans lured by cheap admission and $1 beers were subjected to a surprise bout between two men who ripped each other’s clothes off before kissing and pawing at each other. Said the Star Tribune of the Fort Smith incident:

An elaborate array of mounted and handheld video cameras caught the crowd of 1,600′s reaction as the two men “went right up to the line” of the city’s morality laws…The audience, as well as local fighters drawn to take part in the show, became enraged. “It set the crowd off lobbing beers,” [police Sgt. Adam] Holland said. “They had beers in plastic cups. Those things can get some distance on them actually.” Holland said it took officers about 45 minutes to clear the convention center, as the two actors sprinted away through a specially set-aside tunnel.

Sounds fabulous! TheSmokingGun now has some reactions from people who witnessed the events first-hand, and it seems like even the ones who were aware of the joke didn’t appreciate Cohen’s antics very much (“he is one sick bastard and your right going to make mma look like hicks but at least we arent cock suckers like borat”). Click the thumbnails below to read. Our favorite is the guy who mistakes Cohen for Bronson Pinchot. Ah well…it seems that “gay foreplay” has reached its logical conclusion.

I'm from Arkansas and thought it was hilarious when I first heard. As bad a rap as we get down here. We AIN'T all mindless Deliverance extras! Would've been great to witness the bedlam.

Oh yeah, and beware of all homophobes. It's usually a cover. GUARD YOUR ASS!

Rent the old Ali G DVD's to see him really piss off all the closet gaymos. HILARIOUS! The wrestling guys are great! Put it on those redneck pricks, that's some classic comedy. Be real, lots of the rolling can seem sorta gay and I bet the homo population likes MMA. Who cares? To me soccer is gay and supposedly it is the biggest sport in the world. Who cares?

@ Don:

"Bi" means you're saying "Bi!" to heterosexuality. It's like Andrew Dice Clay said, you either suck cock or you do not suck cock.

No offense.
Don the genius- July 10, 2008 at 11:45 pm
It's funny.
COme on guys. I was a big mma fan, but over the years losing interest.
You have to admit, alot of the moves in mma are pretty gay. Which is cool and all (i'm bi myself), but the fact is undeniable.
You've got two men that want to mount each other, wrap legs around each other, and pull heads of other men into their crotch (triangle choke).

Maybe that's why boxing never does it for me. If they were allowed to wrap legs around each other I might tune in more.

Just shows how fucking stupid the south really is. You southerners are dumb as shit.
Grums- July 10, 2008 at 10:47 am
Oh man. I have to see this movie. Anyway, can't be worse than this? (nude Greco Roman, language is Norwegian, but still pretty funny).

way to go arkanians, you have restored my hope for mankind. faggot behavior should not be tolerated. queers should be sent running for the tunnels for fear of their lives whilst angry beer swilling hics unite under the banner of morality.

I think it's fucking funny, and even funnier are the people getting upset now. If you're so pissed by someone making fun of your (or rather our) favorite sport, it seems like there's still a little doubt in your own head about MMA being legit. This won't hurt the sport, It's a (very, very funny joke for fucks sake.)

Sashas wife is hot. Shes the little sister from Wedding Crashers. I dunno how a d-bag like that gets a girl like her.
BLS1919- July 10, 2008 at 2:18 am
Do you guys have no responce to how its going to affect MMA. A sport that is trying to come into the mainstream and to have some Self serving shitty asshole that is Sasha Baron Coehen try and spin into a redneck calamity. R u guys serious that you'll but this shit. Fuck all of you and please dont buy the next PPV that comes your way. The UFC/EXC/WEC/Strikforce doesnt need your money that badly
BLS1919- July 10, 2008 at 2:13 am
Sasha Cohen is a retard. He is like tom Green only not at all funny and with a bunch of money. I really hope this jerk off gets whats coming to his over the carrot top ass and gets his head stomped in ......very soon hopefuly

"stupid faggot acting moron"? What a dumbfuck.
I like how he put "NOT" in all caps. I'm surprised it wasn't "AIN'T".

zunk1 nailed it. With a title like that, the event was bound to be "FABULOUS". What the hell did they expect? Well, other than sweet, sweet $1 beers, of course.
Fuck any of you queers. Hilarious. That comment can't be real.

I hear people in Arkansas like to eat the corn from their fecal matter and have aborted fetus collections.. not bad for a variant of the human species with the intelligence and comprehension level of a bag of toenail clippings.
fightfan- July 10, 2008 at 12:56 am
Yeah , after having SIGNING a waiver to be admitted to an AMATEUR mma event and having to leave personal items like cell phones, recording devices, etc, etc in your car might have been a tip that somethign wasnt right.

Also, I cant wait for this shit to come out. Gotta be friggin hilarious!!!!!
zunk1- July 10, 2008 at 12:37 am
how can you get pissed at dude, when you went to an event called

which incidentally is the funniest fucking name on earth.
Arkansas man- July 9, 2008 at 11:16 pm
stupid faggot acting moron, people like Cohen should be strung up by his nuts!
People in the south do not put up that shit.
And its NOT funny....fuck any of you queers who like this shit.
Atwor- July 9, 2008 at 10:45 pm
People need to learn to laugh shit off. I think it's funny as hell.
Patrick- July 9, 2008 at 9:55 pm

Shut the fuck up, retard.
NealTaflinger- July 9, 2008 at 8:49 pm
What kind of jag off signs a waiver and agrees to leave their phone in the car, etc, walks into a room full of cameras and isn't the least bit suspicious?
dudeman- July 9, 2008 at 8:05 pm
For $1 beers i'd watch just about anything.
Warcraft- July 9, 2008 at 7:47 pm
Can't wait to see this. Sounds too fucking funny.
Drunk red-necks watching 2 guys dryhump sounds like comedy gold to me.
cw- July 9, 2008 at 7:39 pm
The funniest part of all of this is that people are still falling for Baron Cohen's antics - even now a couple of years after Borat's release in theatres.
BIG CHRIS- July 9, 2008 at 7:32 pm
I hope that isn't going to be the next installment of Ben Vs. Ben.....don't you guys be getting any wild ideas from this...just stick to Ipecac....
Ryan B- July 9, 2008 at 7:29 pm
So no real fights at all?

Dollar beers are where it's at! I can definitly afford 10 bucks to jack borat in the head with a cold one. I don't know about Arkansas, but in Texas that shit wouldn't fly.

The first attempted MMA event here in San Antonio, TX went array just because they didn't have the cage built in time. They were still building an hour after people arrived. People started drinking waiting for the cage to be finished, and shit just started getting out of control. Needless to say the event didn't happen. I can't imagine what would have happened if Sasha showed up with faggots stripping. Leland D Productions is the shittiest contractor in the business.
