As BG previously lamented, it’s been kind of a depressing week in MMA news (or in his case, year). Stefan Struve tearfully discussed his father’s recent cancer diagnosis, there was a slew of firings, a once great show continued it’s downward spiral into irrelevance, and the injury curse of 2012 made sure to pop in and remind us that it was still around.
But it is always darkest before the dawn, Potato Nation. So sayeth Two-Face.
Because through all of the depressing doom and gloom reporting we brought you guys this week, you kept your heads up. You stood tall and proud. Hell, you even had the intestinal fortitude to mock others’ misfortune like we taught you to. So with our faith restored, we are proud to bring back the Comment of the Week today so at least one of you can be rewarded for your ruthless, blackened souls.
Listed after the jump are the comments that gave us some much needed laughs this week, along with a poll for you to vote on your favorite. The winner will receive one of our classic “We Pull No Punches” shirts, but make sure to submit your designs for our next t-shirt contest, as we plan on giving a bunch away in the near future.
And the nominees are…
-Mood, for offering a bit of career advice to Forrest Griffin regarding Xanax:
“Maybe if he took more he’d start to stay inside the cage after fights.”
-Fried Taco, for appropriately kicking Steven Seagal while he was down:
“Seagal also claims royalties whenever that kick is used – although the IRS steps in and takes the money before Stevie sees a dime.”
-Mongrel, for taking Karo Parisyan’s small victory and just eviscerating it:
“I was doubting the legitimacy of this MMA promotion, but was reassured when the guy with one shoe walked on.”
-Buster Hyman, for basically doing the same thing to Stephan Bonnar:
“if his plan is to have a kid and name it after each one of his losses then his wife is in for one busted taco”
-Clemmie, for reminding us all what darker times CagePotato has been through and making us feel a lot better by comparison:
“Have some faith in CP, gist, they know what they’re doing. They have already been fucked worse than they have ever been fucked before. It can only get better from there.”
-RwilsonR, for explaining the true reason why MMA has lost its luster:
“This sport hasn’t been the same since $kala left.”
-And finally, none other than Seth Falvo, for reminding us all of the common bond we share as Internet commenters/writers, which is coincidentally the easiest way to get over the influx of depressing news:
“Everyone else is debating flyweights, oversaturation, Old Dad, New Dad, New Old Dad, Fuel TV…and I’m just sitting here masturbating.”
