Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

CagePotato Presents: The James Irvin ‘Why Me?’ Timeline [INFOGRAPHIC]

In addition to being one of the least decision-prone fighters to ever grace the Octagon,¬†James Irvin is also notorious for being the unluckiest bastard in the history of the sport. From poorly-timed injuries and ill-advised weight cuts to chemical misadventures and freak accidents, the Sandman has suffered through enough hardships to fill the careers of ten¬†journeymen. So with the help of our friends at Havoc Store, we put together an illustrated timeline of the most unfortunate moments in Irvin’s MMA career, which you can check out after the jump.

Enjoy, share it with your friends, and show some love to Havoc Store by visiting their blog or following them on Facebook. And James? You have our sympathy, dude.

For starters, XARM is perhaps the greatest thing to happen to combat sports since EVER. A loss in that venue is no blot on a mans record.
Secondly, I think my support of cripples fighting is well documented. Poke them retards with a stick until they attack each other, that's what I say.

Don't worry James. If you hold out a little longer somebody is bound to invent Xtreme potato sack racing or human wheel barrow jousting or something... there's still options. If you get too banged up there's always cripple fighting across the pond.

Does anyone ever read the comments section and wonder how some people are even capable of using the internet?

The only thing left is for him to give Roger Huerta a call and see if he can hook him up with a job slinging male nail polish because his fighting career is over. Sadly, due to economics and other "dependancy" factors, Irvin will probably keep on getting in the cage/ring/XARMA table and will keep putting himself in harms way. If somebody would have followed him around for the past half decade filming all of this, it could have rivalled "The Smashing Machine."

You guys have got to interview him at some point. Or at the very least do an "Ask James Irvin" segment. And then do the opposite of everything that he recommends!

I have always thought he was very unlucky, but wen i hurd he lost a xarms fight i knew his cereer was over

@algiers: ...and his superman-punch KO of Houston Alexander was a close second. It's like I've always said, whenever Irvin steps into the cage (or XARM table), you can count on something insane happening...good or bad. Mostly bad, though.

His KO of terry martian is still one of the most badass knockouts ever
