Don’t worry- we didn’t forget about you. We were just a little busy yesterday. To demonstrate that your questions weren’t asked for no reason, we’ll jump right into answering them today. Unless, of course, you asked a question and we didn’t answer it. Then it was definitely asked for no reason. Oh well.
So let’s get started, shall we?
Kyle Gifford asks (via Facebook): Why haven’t you taken any questions from FB?
Sorry about that, Kyle. We won’t ignore you in the future. Unless you continue to ask awful questions, that is.
Kyle Gifford asks (via Facebook): I’ve been following CP since the beginning. Can I get a free shirt? I no longer frequent the forums but I did when it first started.
No, Kyle. No you cannot. Next question.
Tarran Constable asks (via Facebook): who are the 2 worst pound for pound fighters in the ufc and strikeforce? And if they were to fight, who would win?
If you’re asking us to compare the worst fighter in the UFC to the worst fighter in Strikeforce, you’re just begging us to make a weak basketball analogy. So here it is: This is like asking what would happen if the worst player in the NBA played one on one against the worst player in the D-League. Even if that happened, you’d never hear from the winner again, so who really cares?
Now, if you’re essentially asking us who are the two worst fighters under contract with Zuffa, and don’t believe Chael’s answer of Wanderlei and Cro Cop, then complete the following steps:
1.) Pick two fighters who lost on the undercard of Friday’s Challengers event. Go ahead, any two will do.
2.) Get a coin, and label one side for the first fighter and the other side for the other fighter.
3.) Flip said coin.
4.) Acknowledge that you just wasted your time.
RwilsonR asks: What is the best fighting/martial arts movie of all time that doesn’t involve Bruce Lee? And no picking some cult Hong Kong POS that is totally unwatchable. I’m talking classic 70?s, 80?s, 90?s Hollywood cinema.
Throughout MMA’s short history, we’ve seen countless fighters try to adapt the martial arts to suit their particular skill set and physical attributes; it’s basically how Gracie Jiu Jitsu was formed. We’ve also seen our fair share of former Olympians make the transition to the fighting world. Lost in the revisionist history of mixed martial arts, however, is Kurt Thomas. In addition to founding his own martial art form, he put his life on the line to serve his country. Never forget.
Fried Taco asks: Who is your favorite commenter (can’t be someone who works for CP, or any of the secret Break Media alliances with other organizations that we all really know about but pretend don’t exist – and no fair picking a girl who takes her clothes off for you).
Okay, Fried Taco. We know where you’re going with this, so we better have a chat. We like you. You’re a wonderful guy, and we’ve had some great times with each other. But things are very hectic here at Cage Potato, and frankly, we’re not ready to commit to just one commentator right now. We know it sounds like a total cop-out, but we’re serious when we say it: It’s not you, it’s us. Let’s just stay friends, okay?
EnemyofReality asks: Dear CP…. I think I might be going bald. Should I go with the shaved head w/ goatee-tattoo and piercing Kerry King look or should I go with the regular guy, ball cap smiling Junior Dos Santos look?
Neither. You’re not a famous metal guitarist or a UFC champion, so you’ll look like a tool trying to imitate one. For an image that won’t get people to refer to you as “that douchebag”, try either of these:
That’s all for now, folks. Tune in next week as we answer even more of your (hopefully at least kind of) MMA related questions. You know the drill: You can send us questions through our Facebook page. You can tweet them to our Twitter account, as well as hashtag questions with #AskThePotato. You can register for our forums and post your questions there. Or you can just post them in the comments section of this article. Or maybe you can show us how to use that Google+ page we set up so we can take questions from there. You can ask questions on that thing, right?
