Picture is unrelated. Do your worst, Nation. (PicProps: MMTKO)
After a long absence, we decided to solicit questions from our readers to find out what was on your minds, so that we may enlighten and amuse you in an engaging way. Also to keep you jerks occupied, because you get all crazy when you’re bored and that’s why we can’t have nice things.
As always, you can submit questions in the CagePotato Forums (which actually exist behind that button up top labeled “Forums”), or you can submit your queries via email to TheAllKnowingPotato@gmail.com. If The Great And Powerful Potato deigns to answer your question, you agree to buy us beers at the next meet and greet. Those are the rules.
Let’s get to it.
[The All Knowing Potato]
A quick two-parter here for you:
Do you not realize that Wanderlei is a fan-favorite fighter who once seemed almost unbeatable? Have you not considered the fact that current fighters might think that Wandy is past his prime, has lost his aura, and is, therefore, the most vulnerable opponent that can skyrocket their own career?
Edit: Let’s make it a three-parter. Who should they be calling out?

As we all know, eating horses gives you super-strength, but horses are very expensive and hard to catch. What animal can the average Joe like me catch and eat for similar results?
-El Famous Burrito
If this is research for a new special ingredient, Burrito, do not tell us.
According to a registered dietitian we’ve been seeing, mind where your protein comes from only in regards to its fat content. Leaner (poultry) and healthier (fish) meats are preferable. Horse meat is leaner, along with game meats like bison, buffalo, and moose.
For things you can actually catch, may we suggest eggs?

Do you see the UFC buying out Bellator anytime soon??
Also, what current BFC fighters do you think would perform the best in the UFC?
To hear Bjorn Rebney tell it, Bellator ain’t for sale, and we tend to believe him. MTV2 has seen an increase in viewership in its first season broadcasting the promotion, and it will likely continue to increase this fall when season five starts. After suffering through lean times, it looks like Bellator could start raking in a little dough.
Rather than acquire them, we kind of wonder if Zuffa won’t attempt to counterprogram Bellator to death, perhaps with the Strikeforce brand. Zuffa could conceivably deliver a weekly SF broadcast on Spike or one of the networks, providing a farm league for the UFC while directly attacking what is, in effect, their only competition. If Bellator went under, Zuffa could then pick up their video library and contracts for peanuts.
In our opinion, the first contracts they would be interested in would be Bellator’s current champs, particularly Eddie Alvarez and Hector Lombard. You may remember that we mentioned both of those guys when we talked about our top fives. Alvarez is prehaps the most likely to make a dent in the rankings, while adding Lombard would at least give the 185ers someone else to call out.

What ever happened to the Reem answering our questions we posted on the front page? Liars!
First of all, Nicer, The Potato does not appreciate your tone.
When we asked if any of you had a question for Ubereem, we don’t know what the hell we were thinking. Some of you bastards are downright creepy. Still, we picked out a nice selection, and we slipped the list to a guy we met who says he was headed to Amsterdam for a “spiritual journey”. We assume he was headed there to train with Golden Glory, so he should be able to find Overeem no problem, right?
Connection issues aside, we expect answers back after this weekend, so stay tuned.
