CagePotato Halloween Costume Contest: The Finalists

Now that our post-Halloween hangovers have almost completely subsided, it’s time to present the finalists for our MMA costume contest. Take a look at the best submissions after the jump, and please select your favorite costume via the poll on the right. Remember: $175 in MMA Warehouse gift cards are on the line, so vote thoughtfully.

Zach L. as Brock Lesnar (#1)

Joe M. as Kimbo Slice

Fedor Emelianenko jack-o-lantern carved by Cody V. (not a costume, but still Halloween-related and impressive)

Jeremy F. as…well, check out the pics and then allow him to explain.

"The Grandfather clock slowly recovered from his savage beating suffered at the hands of Jeff Monson. Depressed and dejected, Grandfather clock tested fate with a game of Russian roulette. As the hammer hit the empty chamber Grandfather clock collapsed in a heap of tears and cocaine.

In a confused rage Grandfather Clock threw his revolver against the wall and screamed like a little bitch. A dvd tumbled down and landed next to the beatdown clock’s tear soaked face. It was a copy of the blockbuster ‘Tango and Cash’ which for whatever reason made Grandfather clock think of a shittier movie called ‘Never Back Down’.

When Grandfather clock opened the ‘Never Back Down" case an apparition of Nick Diaz appeared amidst much smoke. In awe the grandfather clock trembled. The Nick Diaz spirit took a long intake from a crudely fashioned "cigarette" and slowly exhaled medicinal fumes. Grandfather clock’s body was pulled from the floor by the powerful herb and Nick Diaz looked him in the eyes and shot the clock meanest mean mug ever mugged.

Diaz got up further into Grandfathers clock’s face and indignantly said "Don’t be scared homie" tossed up the Stockton ‘hey buddy’ and vaporized.

Shocked and inspired, Grandfather Clock then realized his only chance for redemption was to train MMA without fear. Grandfather’s internal clock stopped instantly and he would be forever reminded of the moment of his realization as his face was frozen at exactly 4:20pm.

Now 6 months later, Grandfather Clock is back from the Abu Dhabi Anarachy Championships with a new belt, which he won with his perfectly timed jiu-jitsu and groin punching. Grandfather clock has also shed the rest of his bitch past with a bunch of completely rad mma nicknames like ‘Grand-Daddy Glock’ and ‘Chronological Assassin’.

GrandDaddy is back on American soil with only one thing on his mind…extracting the ultimate revenge on Jeff Monson…banging his ex-girlfriend and using Jeff’s cell phone to take pictures of it (especially the ATM)


Todd L. as Brock Lesnar (#2). Is his costume as well-thought-out as Zach’s? Not at all. But anybody who painstakingly draws an ejaculating cock on his chest for a blog contest deserves our respect. (Bonus points for hand-making a Coors Light label rather than actually buying a bottle of it.)

Jeremy H. as Billy Mays. We told you guys three times that your costumes had to be MMA-related. Jeremy sent this one in anyway. Persistence: Pass it on.

Now cast your vote in the poll! The 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners will be announced on Wednesday morning. Good luck…

    They were all terrible

    Brock Lesnar number 2, should win hands down if he wasn't making a Diaz brother face, either way thats pretty hilarious.
  4. omunto Says:

    Mon, 11/02/09 - 07:48

    Give it to Zach L to help recoup the loses on those ovrepriced gloves! But yeah they were all pretty bad. Not that I could do any better.
  5. two_black_eyes Says:

    Mon, 11/02/09 - 07:57

    i say give it to the dude that carved the pumpkin, all the costumes are crap.

    Mon, 11/02/09 - 08:07

    those were pretty creative!! the chick holding the scorecard in the lesner group pic should be the win !!!!
  7. knucklesamitch Says:

    Mon, 11/02/09 - 08:13

    From the pics...Zach L. spent at least $100 on MMA gear from MMAwarehouse.com in order to win a gift card for mmawarehouse.com...That's just dumb.
  8. busted_cranium Says:

    Mon, 11/02/09 - 08:16

    Sorry boys and girls, but all these entries pretty much sucked Lesnar's thimble. If you're going to get decked out for Halloween -- not to mention a fucking Halloween contest -- at least put a little thought and creativity into it. And that skank holding the round card looks like a fan of ass-to-mouth.

    are you sure that's not Sean Sherk doing his impersonation of Brock in that first picture?

    @ busted_cranium Who isn't into ATM?
  12. Lunk Says:

    Mon, 11/02/09 - 08:39

    I agree, all of these pretty much sucked. Even the pumkin carving sucked, tho the guy probably spent 4hrs on it. CP must not have gotten very many entries. I vote for Arianny, and next year Im going to put together some half-ass costume and sweep this contest.
  13. Lunk Says:

    Mon, 11/02/09 - 08:41

    PS, I must have gotten really drunk on Halloween because I woke up yesterday morning and had somehow lost a whole hour.
  14. shitbag Says:

    Mon, 11/02/09 - 08:51

    ARIANNY FTMFW!!!!!! Arianny can suck my bloody anytime...
  15. knucklesamitch Says:

    Mon, 11/02/09 - 09:09

    @Lunk...Did you turn the clock the wrong way, you're supposed to "Fall back"...there by gaining an hour...Maybe you lost 2 hours and you haven't even realized it yet.
  16. Lunk Says:

    Mon, 11/02/09 - 09:36

    I live in AZ. Everyone turns their clocks back but us, so since everyone else lost an hour I gained - nevermind. That joke was stretchin it anyway.
  17. Lunk Says:

    Mon, 11/02/09 - 09:37

    Wait. Scratch that... reverse it.
  18. Tai-Pan Says:

    Mon, 11/02/09 - 10:15

    The Fedor pumpkin carving is pound for pound the best carving in the world, its just to bad your casual halloween fan really has no idea how great a carving it really is.
  19. Just A Wrestler Says:

    Mon, 11/02/09 - 10:21

    HAHHAHA YES! Thats me as Brock #2. Drawing a cock on your chest is pretty damn hard. I also had a random japanese beer lying around and just drew the label. SWEET I get respect from CP and Bonus Points! VOTE FOR ME!
  20. denver_rolling Says:

    Mon, 11/02/09 - 10:23

    wow, the Billy Mays of this year was the Sarah Palin of last year. I saw about 5 Mayeses
  21. Just A Wrestler Says:

    Mon, 11/02/09 - 10:25

    i also sent in a GSP one that wasnt as funny, but it was him rubbing baby oil on himself
  22. Just A Wrestler Says:

    Mon, 11/02/09 - 10:32

    'Chronological Assassin' HAHA thats hilarious
  23. Sho Nuff Says:

    Mon, 11/02/09 - 10:47

    Can we vote for Arianny, holy shit, that is hot!
  24. SupermanPunch Says:

    Mon, 11/02/09 - 10:48

    Ug. The CP costume contest is just like Dragon VS Shogun.. No Winners.
  25. Kellenavalanche Says:

    Mon, 11/02/09 - 11:09

    Man, I was pretty pumped for this post but that blew. Arianni has to take it. She is MMA related by default and is at least hot. No Ross Clifton skeleton costumes? Too soon?
  26. TheJuggernaut Says:

    Mon, 11/02/09 - 11:17

    How in the hell was I not even considered a top one? I looked identical to Kenny florian, my friend looked exactly like Diego sanchez (it took us an hour to draw that arm tattoo), his brother had a Royce Gracie gi on (including the logos) and we even had a sexy ref involved. How did that get passed over by a guy with a dick on his chest?
  27. Barc Says:

    Mon, 11/02/09 - 11:53

    I vote TheJuggernaut without even seeing it. It couldn't be the worst. I thought the Bens were desperate for entries. Why don't they lay down all of the pictures and let us vote on all of them?
  28. Clyde Says:

    Mon, 11/02/09 - 12:41

    Finally some photos of Ariany covered in blood, just like in my dreams. I thought the Billy mays one was a good effort but not really MMA related. In which case I'll vote for brock number two. And I'm only voting for him becasue when I crolled down and only saw the face, I thought it was an amazing Nick Diaz impression.

  34. Poutine Guillotine Says:

    Thu, 11/05/09 - 12:27

    For all the critics that did nothing BUT flame the post and complain about the entries I have one thing to say: "The most important part of the CagePotato Costume Contest is not to win, but to take part. Just as the most important part of life is not the victory, but the struggle" ...and for those who too ignorant to understand that is a parody of the Olympic creed and super fucking relevant
