Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next? A One-Year Retrospective

(Jenna, you shouldn’t have. You really, really shouldn’t have.)

Holy crap! turns one year old today, y’all! Many thanks to those of you who have stuck with us since the beginning — or the close-to-beginning, at least — and helped build this little site into what I believe is the most entertaining and energetic MMA community on the Internet. Lots of bigger and badder things to come, so stay tuned and tell your friends. To honor this day, let’s take a trip in the way-back machine, and revisit 25 of CagePotato’s all-time greatest moments. Enjoy…

CP is the only site i check atleast 2 to 3 times a day, it was one of the best discoveries almost a year ago, Keep up the good work.

Happy Birthday CP.
Now why does the fucking pages load so slow?
And why does this stupid fucking pop up shit keep popping up when they aren't suppose to?
sarah- October 21, 2008 at 3:40 pm
happy birthday, CP. i read you every day and can say that you are truly the classiest MMA blog around. which isn't saying much at all.

I would like to request more open letters like Dear Guy Attending This Live MMA Event.

I really like CP. I think you guys do a good job of bringing MMA news to the masses and I prefer you to Sherdog. Happy Bday and keep it up.
justin- October 21, 2008 at 1:50 pm
CP is by far and away the best MMA blog out there, but the epic fail of preemptively naming Joe Duarte as Dana White's "the next Anderson Silva" remains memorable.

I also loved the Top Worst Tatts but that was actually a Top *12* Worst MMA Tattoos. Should be Worst 13 with Seth Petruzellis ghey-ass full ass tramp stamp. LMAO!!!

I love that Kimbo video. What a fucking bum. Tapping might be for bitches, but only faggots have glass jaws.
Sam- October 21, 2008 at 1:20 pm
Got to say favourite moments were the greatest moments in commercials starring fighters, the "too tiny to arm bar" competition because it won me a shirt and the day feckin commenting got fixed on this site.

Yiew! for Cage Potato!

I am currently at an Animal Behavior class, and Cage Potato saves me from boredom every time im here. I am very biased to say, but my favorite article has to be the interview with Machida since I was the one who interviewed him. Congrats on the 1st bday CP, keep up the good work
Cliff Huxtable- October 21, 2008 at 12:50 pm
Hey CP, Happy birthday, your site is great. Thanks to your great writing and frequent updates I have never been less productive at work.
