DNC Protesters Looking to Learn a Little MMA


(‘Wish a motherf*cker would start some trouble in here.’)

So you were planning on going to protest the Democratic National Convention in Denver next week, but you’re worried about getting your ass kicked and possibly tear-gassed? Don’t even sweat it, man. Protest group Recreate ’68 has got your solution: learn some MMA.

Denver’s Gumm Mixed Martial Arts Academy (owned and operated by “two-time UFC veteran” Brad Gumm, who once beat Joe Stevenson…and then lost the subsequent rematch) is opening its doors to the protesters to help them learn some fighting skillz before it all goes down in the streets of Denver. Now try and tell me that MMA isn’t mainstream.

From DNC Disruption ’08 (via Fight Opinion):

Gumm Mixed Martial Arts Gym has provided an incredible opportunity for supporters of R-68. There will be many counter-protesters who will be accompanying us at the convention. An ounce of preparation for the worst possible scenario is a valuable and strategic move to ensure your personal safety.

Nothing would please me more than to turn on the news coverage of the DNC next week and see protesters triangle choking each other in the streets. Then, just when it turns into a chaotic, but highly technical Battle Royal, Barack Obama will have to come outside and start knocking people out with his patented Superman punch just to restore order. That’s executive power I can get behind.

This would be ironic since, McCain was the Senator who got the UFC banned from Pay Per View and tried to get rid of MMA all together.... I dont know how many people remember that

Hey you bunch of Morons

If this is what you want to see happen then go join the army, I am sure they could show you all of this kind of crap you want. All I can say is if this gets out of control and you stupid morons burn down denver, then don't ask me or anyone else to help you rebuild it. You burned it down so you can live with it or rebuild it your seleves. As for hurting poeple if you go down there with that intent then you should get your ass kicked or even shot!

Yep, I also had to comment on:
"Nothing would please me more than to turn on the news coverage of the DNC next week and see protesters triangle choking each other in the streets."

That literally made me laugh out loud...I haven't done that from reading something online in months. Funniest line I've read on cagepotato (which is frequently pretty funny).

"Audacity of the Foot", nice phrase.

Obama '08

Ya right after the protestors get done with their two week training sessions.... bust a riot cop... they can enjoy some time in the DNC lock ups they've already got ready for them.

"Nothing would please me more than to turn on the news coverage of the DNC next week and see protesters triangle choking each other in the streets."

One of the few things online to actually make me laugh out loud.

"Recreate 68"?? I wasn't around in '68, but weren't protests supposed to be about peace and love back then? Now it's about choking people out?? How times have changed. :p

thrust with a broken stick or club, don't swing it. poke at the face or throat.

i think a triangle choke wouldnt be a wise decision in a riot, nothing beats a good old fasion broken beer bottle or a nice stick with a nail through it, a sock with a rock in it(the longer the sock the better) i could see obama shanking someone in the neck with a pencil.

on the plus side for Gumm, he subbed a dude with an omoplata. nice work

barack would roll up and start KTFOing people with the Audacity of His Foot.

I would say Obaam v.s. The Economy but that is like ptting Anderson Silva v.s. Phil Baroni.
Jeffro- August 19, 2008 at 4:47 pm
I would love to see Obama fighting. I would pay top dollar for that PPV. Who would your ideal matchup be?
