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