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

‘Fighter’ Caption Contest: The Winners

(Kenny is sooooo happy for you!)

This week’s Fighter caption contest — which centered on a chance encounter between The Grim Reaper, Pooty-Poot, and the Muscles from Brussels — was an overwhelming success, hauling in 440-ish entries, nearly all of which revolved around some combination of hepatitis and homoeroticism. Three of them were good enough to earn copies of Fighter, courtesy of Viking and Coach. But first, some honorable mentions:

crookshark: In spite of his fighting skills, Aleksander Emelianenko proved to be terrible at musical chairs.

Destro: Jean-Claude breathed a sigh of relief…finally, someone who was even more underdressed than he was.

Horror Fighter: Frank Dux stopped smiling when Aleks reached into his shorts and pulled out Jackson’s Harley-Davidson bandana.

Dangada Dang: Jean Claude recovering from what will go down in history as THE most awkward boner.
*previous record held by….Jean Claude Van Damme

And the winners are…

Ouch! That hurts: “Vladimir, I thought you said you had to wash your hair tonight?”

KnuckleChuck: Coincidentally, two weeks after this photo was taken, Aleksander tested positive for hepatitis-b AND polonium-210.

Sean: It was at that moment that Aleksander realized just who had been on the other end of that glory hole.

If your names have been called, e-mail with your address. If you didn’t win, don’t take it too hard — we’ll have a new caption contest next week with an even sexier prize, so be ready to jump back on that horse and try again. Thanks for playing, everybody…

New signed Playboy -- good prize.

I'll have to prepare myself, one day I'll win one of these contests.
Dangada Dang- October 23, 2008 at 10:24 pm

i was gonna say crooksharks was the funniest but looks like hes getting something anyway
Horror Fighter- October 23, 2008 at 9:32 pm
Thanks to Geriatric Peon, Skidding, and anyone who else who showed me some love. As Jackson said when Dux gave his bandana back: "Any time, any place, anywhere, if you ever need me, I'll be there." Kumite!

Oh would you all stop your whining? Bunch of BITCHES in here! Crookshark, you're the people's choice...e-mail me your address and I'll send you a t-shirt.
ksgbobo- October 23, 2008 at 8:35 pm
so the new Playboy will be the prize next week...sweet!
cr_trinity- October 23, 2008 at 8:25 pm
Why didn't crookshark win? That was the best line I've ever heard. You gotta stop catering to these 14 year old pre pubescent little illiterate fatherless morons Cage Potato.
Walrus- October 23, 2008 at 8:21 pm
Yep, crookshark was definately the funniest.

Overall, the runners-up were superior.

Never would have thought they would have picked sexual refrence lines or I would have submitted some. I think that while they can be funny - for this purpose it is tacky and really has nothing to do with MMA or an MMA story. A photo posted with a caption like this would fit better on a general parody site not on a site covering MMA topics.

Jugger: Look, all I'm saying is that there are other jokes that can be made.

Remember when they posted that breakdown of Cage Potato comments back in June? ( I bet if they broke down caption content responses, they'd be something like this:

70% - Gay jokes about person pictured
15% - Not funny captions (that don't involve gay jokes)
10% - People asking for the prize without submitting a caption
5% - Funny captions (that don't involve gay jokes)

(For the record, this post falls under the "Caption content winner wasn't funny" slice on the previously mentioned chart.)

I thought I didn't win because my post was too late,
but no, one winner posted a few minutes after me.

Seems to be a proof that you have a very bad sense of humour.
Either that or these captions contests are fixed...

I'm calling the FBSC, they've just finished the EliteXC investigation.
Shagen- October 23, 2008 at 7:16 pm
You gotta send CrookShark a book too. It was the funniest and most original. Anyone agree?
Jugger- October 23, 2008 at 7:09 pm
should I be proud to admit I have no idea what a glory hole is?


The reason every caption was homo-erotic is because VanDamme has a very open and well-recorded man-crush on the E brothers. In fact, the only reason this photo was chosen for a caption contest was because of that very well-know fact.
MMANewbExpert- October 23, 2008 at 7:07 pm
CrookShark should have taken this one easily.
