21 Humans Who Make Being Human Look Really, Really Hard

Compared to This, MMA Fighters Have It Easy


(If you really wanted him dead, couldn’t you just wait for the inevitable heart attack?  Probably won’t be long now…)

You think the stuff that gets spewed on MMA forums (except for ours, which are home to gentlemen and scholars, one and all) is rough, check out the world of sumo wrestling.  Grand Champion Asashoryu Death-Threat.php”>got a death threat on a Japanese forum recently.  Then he went out and kicked ass anyway:

The threat, which stated "coming to Ryogoku to kill Asashoryu" appeared on the popular Japanese Internet forum 2channel shortly before Asashoryu stepped into the ring to face Kisenosato in his first bout.
"The threat was posted on an Internet Web site Sunday," said a JSA spokesman, who goes by the single name Hayashi. "There was no direct contact with Asashoryu."

Seriously, somebody out there cares enough about fat guys in diapers shoving one another to threaten to kill one of them?  We just can’t work up enough anger to want to see someone dead.  Not even for the worst of the worst in MMA.  Well, maybe Todd Beard.  Although you get the sense that you might be doing him a favor.

Speaking of forums…you get your UFC 93 picks in yet?  You don’t have to threaten anyone to get noticed around here.  Unless you’re our old pal TUF Guy.  Then it’s practically expected.

Keep playing russian roulette. The UFC will be in Chicago again some time. I'll break your nose if it means kicking the shit out of every kid with a lap-top in the arena.

Can we please not talk about TUF guy. Giving him attention only fuels his need to troll.

how come we never saw a sumo wrestler back in the old ufc days? when it was like this style of fighting verses this one. that would of been Hilarius . kinda like blood sport, when that monkey fighter fought that sumo wrestler but for real.

First, Asashoryu is not Japanese, he's Mongolian. The Japanese hate that gaijin (foreigners) are dominating them in their sport. Think it's a coincidence those two Russian brothers in sumo got caught and banned for weed?

At least give us a heads up the adverts are coming... i have been watching break.com for years, and I found out about Cagepotato through that site, since I have not visited Break at all because I am hook on Cagepotato.

So just out of curiosity...

...am I the only guy in the Potato Nation that digs sumo?

Yeah, yeah. I know. Fat guys in diapers. But that doesn't make me a "chubby chaser"!

Does it?

Seriously, I enjoy the sport, but I can never find it on US television.

Gotta start checking out YouTube...

I should try some death threat to win caption contests.
All my previous attempts just failed
