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

‘Fight for ALF’ Update: HOLY CRAP, WE DID IT.

When we last updated you on Thursday, our “Fight for ALF!” fundraiser had brought in just short of $3,200, which meant we had virtually no chance of hitting our $5,000 goal by Sunday night’s deadline. Maybe it wasn’t a total victory, but it was still an amazing display of the Potato Nation’s support for a struggling comrade, and nobody appreciated it more than angrylittlefeet herself.

So, I woke up this morning and found out that an Australian dude named Nicholas Troy donated $1,719 in the last hour of the official donation drive, bringing our total up to an even five grand. It’s a damn miracle. We did it. Thank you, Nicholas — we’ll never be able to say that enough, but we’re blown away by your generosity. Thanks so much for making this happen.

The stunning four-figure donation means that Nicholas wins the signed, framed photo of Georges St. Pierre, from the personal collection of The12ozCurls.

Our second-place donation was a whopping $500 from a member of the MMA industry who wishes to remain anonymous — but we have a pair of MMA gloves signed by Bas Rutten if he wants ‘em, courtesy of Chris Colemon.

The third-place donor was Eoghan Hughes, who sent us $420 in total donations. He wins either the GSP relic cards from 12ozCurlsor that UFC 127 program from Jason Moles that was signed by everyone from Kenny Florian to Brittney Palmer — his choice.

And fourth place, earning “whatever we have left,” is pumpkinking11, who donated $150.

We’ll be in touch with all you guys soon — as well as with all the folks who pledged $50 and have a CagePotato t-shirt coming their way — to get your mailing info and start sending out the prizes. Thanks so much to everybody who kicked in some money, or helped spread the word on Facebook and Twitter. And please follow Laura Nicholson on twitter @angrylittlefeet, where she’ll continue to update us on her battle against Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Love y’all.

LOL @ Mr_Misanthropy. Yeah.I know what you mean.
Mr_Misanthropy- July 29, 2013 at 12:04 pm
Wait... I guess what I should have said is it's pretty amazing that a bunch of strangers that get together to tell dick jokes can make a difference.

Whatever, you know what I mean.

@CrushCo No worries. Random and irate is pretty much what we have all come to expect of comments I think.

Good luck ALF. Pretty amazing that a bunch of strangers can come together to do something besides tell dick jokes.

@Morne1970: Instead of bragging incessantly, you prick, how about asking your friend's mother to spread the bread with a donation of her own?

No one says we can raise MORE than $5k, right?

Well, now that they deleted the spambot, my post seems a little random and irate, doesn't it? (I swear it was funny in context).

*bows to Nicholas, declares himself not worthy*

And Viva, if you're going to Sonnen vs. Shogun you can get your kicks/punches/judo throws in there. The same goes for anyone who donated, really.

This is awesome! Nicholas is indeed the man! I figured it was all over & only saw we made the goal on FB this morning. Amazing. You guys are all freakin awesome! The donations are what I'll be living off of and paying my other bills with since I have no income at all now. I am so damn grateful <3
