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

Check Out Episode 8 of The Bum Rush Radio Show With Special Guest Martin ‘Hitman’ Kampmann

(This wouldn’t be the last time Ben and Dana’s paths would cross…)

Chances are, if you’re an MMA media type like Ben, Chad or myself and you get a mid-afternoon call from Dana White on a Saturday, it’s not because he’s inviting you out for Pinkberry.

I won’t give away the surprise, but I will say, if nothing else, although I recommend you check out Ben’s interview with UFC welterweight contender Martin Kampmann, I suggest you listen to the first five minutes of the show to hear what "The Baldfather" had to say to our fearless leader.

All of the usual inane banter, terribly inaccurate predictions and somewhat expert analysis are all still included free of charge.

Instead of waiting with bated breath for us to post the latest episode of the show every other week, make your complicated lives easier by subscribing to The Bum Rush on iTunes HERE.

Wow... so I guess this will make Cagepotato the John Fitch of mma websites

Actually here in the U.S. we're all running on dial-up, the recession's hit everyone pretty hard.
But seriously I'm sure you guys can figure it out. Maybe ask Ariel Helwani if you can borrow some of his studio time in that nice little room he gets for his radio show...can't hurt to ask right?

 Thanks, man. I feel like we're getting better with each show.We have identical microphones, but apparently Canadian Internet technology is ahead of yours. I'm thinking Ben has dial-up with all the disconnects we edit out of the show.
mynameisalsoben- October 15, 2010 at 4:36 pm
Good show guys, obviously the DW story being the highlight.
One minor suggestion: Ben should get whatever microphone Mike is using...Mike's audio quality is much higher (maybe Candian technology is THAT far ahead of ours??)
Keep up the good work fellas

I like the idea, but it could definitely get out of hand and backfire completely.
RwilsonR- October 15, 2010 at 12:57 pm
Drano makes a good point, as always.

I like Videodrome's idea for a collective apology. Maybe we could all pass around an "I'm Sorry" card for all of us to sign and send him.

Better yet, and this is actually a semi-serious idea - CP could have a contest to have as many members of PotatoNation as possible send in pictures of themselves after having bought the actual issue of Playboy. That way you are promoting sales for them in an effort to say you are sorry. You could have the "Take-the-most-creative-picture-you-can-with-the-playboy-issue-that-you-legally-purchased-which-in-no-way-may-invovle-semen Contest." That would be a good way to make things right.

I'm surprised Mike had such a problem getting into the U.S. I went down there last spring for a couple of weeks and they let me through without any hassle, despite my three assault charges. I had more hassle getting back into Canada!

I can't help it. Gotta rant. WTF Dana??? I used to like Dana, kind of in the way you like your drug dealer. You know he is a shithead, but you respect his business saavy, because he hasn't been caught and he is rolling that pimp 2003 theft recovered water damaged Escalade, but mainly you're ok with him because he supplies what you crave. But now, I just think Dana is a shithead.
I can't wrap my head around why he would care at all, let alone enough to call and threaten you. He can't be dumb enough to really think Arianny is some pure and helpless maiden who you violated by posting her naked pics online, can he? Normally I would attribute something like this to fucking with his cash flow, but I don't see how you have fucked with his cash flow in any way except increasing it. What gives? Is he banging Arianny & putting the cock pocket on a pedestal? Is he just out of his mind? Dana, where is the logic?
ghostboner- October 15, 2010 at 12:02 pm
"How could you do this to that poor girl?" I hope that is on Dana's tombstone.

Right above the name Dana White "Knight"
cecils_pupils- October 15, 2010 at 10:40 am
As a reader and regular here at CP I have mixed feeling about this whole Arianny/Playboy issue fiasco. On the one hand, who wouldn't like to see leaked Arianny Celeste pics? Amirite?

But on the other hand, it is never a good thing to piss off Dana White - never. I like CP and I want to see CP move forward and get press credentials/exclusive pics and stuff, so I was super-excited when J-Dog sacked-up and got Cage Potato hooked-up in Indiana... by Dana himself. Now way in hell CP is getting anywhere near cage-side now.

I will always be a fan of CP, but please, take a moment and think some of these things through. If not, well then I guess I'll just have to fuck off.

El Famous Burrito Says:

Ben, did you ever consider sending Arianny naked pictures of yourself to make it up to her?

Or to Dana?


Please please please please PLEASE make this happen. I bet it would actually work, and all would be forgiven.

Um, no homo.
glassjawsh- October 15, 2010 at 10:25 am
sweet death from above 1979 song at the beginning. I still like the low blow and happy hour over at FL better, sorry bro
agentsmith- October 15, 2010 at 9:37 am
WTF is Arcade Fire doing on an MMA podcast? I will not stand for this kind of faggotry, sir!
jimbonics- October 15, 2010 at 9:37 am
Nice show guys. Good way to kill 1 1/2 hours at work.
GetUpAndKill- October 15, 2010 at 9:26 am

I am a first time caller. I've never listened to your show until today and I think you guys are doing a good job. I am tired of listening to those weirdos over at Sherdog radio. Your intro mix needs a bit of work but I like the "Death from Above" loop. Anyway I just wanted to know what you thought of Dana's ability to intimidate. I mean we all see his blogs joking around and such but the guy really is a mover and shaker with a significant amount of pull in the industry. Did you ever get the feeling like you were in big trouble with him? Like he might seriously consider blowing your car up, or sending over a few goons to rough you up? Did he have that mobster feel to him?

dannyvalentine- October 15, 2010 at 9:06 am
you know that scene in that one movie where that funny thing happens but when you sit back and think about it, it is actually overwhelmingly depressing? Well, this is that movie. It is a fucking drag that the UFC has such a stranglehold on the industry that Ben has to cower and apologize on the radio for a fucking prank that hurt no one. Come on man, is larianny that sacred, that important to the expansion and success of the UFC that Dana White had to take time away from flying lear jets and driving lamborghinis to shit on some guy who was just doing his job. Fuck man, where is the booze, I need to drink myself into oblivion. Oh, and way to be a bad ass MRuss.
entisgood- October 15, 2010 at 8:31 am
the lesson from this arianny scandal is that the next time you decide to upload pics, host them on a 3rd party site. the other lesson is that girls with no asses shouldn't pose in playboy, even if they have big titties.
Mike Russell- October 15, 2010 at 8:21 am
@ReX: It's either because of the Winnebago Man or the Zuffa lawsuit story we posted...
ReX13- October 15, 2010 at 7:44 am
Bjorn Rebney still won't return my calls, can i blame Ben?
agentsmith- October 15, 2010 at 7:43 am
It's kinda odd to me that Dana would be pissed at all. I mean, Arianny works for him, but that doesn't give him any claim over her Playboy pics... if anyone should be pissed, it's Hugh Hefner. Does Zuffa get paid when one of the Octagon girls does Playboy?

It's also hilarious that both Dana and Arianny are acting like someone posted nude photos that some creep paparazzi took through her bathroom window, instead of photos that she was (presumably) paid very well to pose for and have widely published. HOW COULD YOU DO THAT TO THIS POOR GIRL?
J-Dog- October 15, 2010 at 7:42 am
Well, for the record... I have nothing to do with what is posted on this site. DW if you are reading and I run into you again in the future, I hope we're still buds. I'd hate to get fucked worse than I've ever been fucked just because I shot an event under the CP banner. BG you need to keep that phone number so you can call him up and beg and plead later when they won't give us creds.
El Famous Burrito- October 15, 2010 at 7:24 am
I should quit my job to listen to this.
Videodrome_NOW- October 15, 2010 at 7:09 am
Man that sucks about Dana. So is there going to a collective Potato Nation petition with all our signatures saying we are all sorry for looking at pictures of "a girl" in crudely uploaded photos?? Of all the shitty MMA sites out there, it's unfortunate that this happened to CP.

Also, MRuss' bar story was fuckin funny. Why did we have to wait so long to hear that shit?
dranokills- October 15, 2010 at 6:50 am
oh one more comment before I go..... I like the picture above, but shouldn't Dana be behind you for this picture? I mean after all...............
