At first I thought that Joe Son's balls was a turn-of-phrase, not a poster's name.

"Man, my date was going smooth, we had a lot of chemistry, but then I hit Joe Son's balls and it got super awkward."

"How's the studying for finals? Not so good. I got hit with Joe Son's balls and now I'm super behind."

"Take a look at the big screen and lets look at the finish to this fight. Out of nowhere--the greatest come-from-behind, one-punch knockout--the history of the sport. Yeah, it looks good now but--You caught him, then you hit him with Joe Son's Balls again on the way down., and he is out cold. Yeah, it looks nice, but I've got to get back to the gym."

Reading through the comments I was thinking, "dang, its actually refreshing to have people congratulate the winner...being all polite and generous". Annnnnnnd, then I hit Joe Sons Balls.

Way to butcher the flow.

the idea is great, but my god. its like having a jake shields shirt with a blanket on the front and thats all. too easy and a lame fighter. the gsp checklist shirt needs mass production.

Cheers dude.
I'm super happy to get where I did, I was not expecting it.
Thanks for all the positive feedback, And If there's an other contest, I promise to do a design 10x better!

@ itdoesntlookwright I thought the Chuck shirt was badass, I'm not a big Lidell fan but I voted for your shirt.
PortlandMMA- June 4, 2010 at 2:19 pm
Good job on the shirt tj.labs, you should do a Spencer Fisher shirt next time, I think he fits exactly what you are talking about...plus the guys got some of the world's best mutton chops.

Hey guys!
First of all, a big thanks to Cage Potato and everyone who voted for my shirt!

I was really going for creativity and originality points going with Caol Uno because I wanted to rep some of the not lesser known, but less favorite fighters.

Im looking forward to the next CP contest, thanks again!
Clinch-Smash- June 4, 2010 at 10:39 am
All take it as a win for me, voting on the Uno shirt and it won. But it really was a great design. Congrates TJ! I'll buy, make it happen CP.

@HEY

How was my shirt stupid?

@ReX13

No new column, maybe just a x in both.

@ PortlandMMA

I own one skull shirt and it is a Don Frye shirt. I own it only because it is a Don Frye shirt( free autographed photo included with order). Like you, most of the time I try not to dress like an eighth grader. There need to be more understated and humorous designs in MMA clothing lines.

@831

1. I ain't your buddy, guy
2. Posting unrelated information is how the Internet was created
3. I don't need attention from an Internet board, its just an awesome fact that people need to know, and the only one calling attention to it is you

congrats dad

pretty sure you will want to lawyer up before selling that uno shirt. Matel dont play. they better replace my work keyboard soon im typing this on onscrern keyboard.
PortlandMMA- June 4, 2010 at 9:37 am
@ Rex I think CP should, the only problem is getting a license to the fighters. I literally only own one MMA shirt (RVCA Fedor shirt) and I would have honestly bought half of those shirts. An investor with actual capital needs to make shirts that don't suck and they'd make bank. The only shirts you can get now are Tapout and shirts with barbwire and skulls like its fucking 1991.
ReX13- June 4, 2010 at 9:35 am
Extra congrats to the creators of the Fedor Emelianenko, GSP, Harold Howard, and Charles Bennett shirts, as they have all been immortalized in the CagePotato fighter database. Chuck and Caol will also show up soon, as will Brock and Lawlor.

In short: great job to all. I'll say it again, there's a lot of talent in the Potato Nation.

I loved them all but the Kimbo shirt had me laughing my ass off
ReX13- June 4, 2010 at 9:34 am
Purple Pickle>> I like the GSP one also, but don't you think it should have a column for Matt Serra: "Slightly Impressed"?
PurplePickle- June 4, 2010 at 9:26 am
I love that GSP checklist shirt. Someone please make that bad boy and I will throw my Visa digits at you with the quickness. Nice work Stevicus. Good job everybody.

Great and well deserved winner.

Thanks for voting for my 'Krazy Horse/Kid Kaos' shirt whoever did.

I hope we get more competitions for photoshop in the future.

Thanks CP.
HEY- June 4, 2010 at 8:56 am
Yes, the Machida shirt definitely should have won. But look at it this way:

At least that stupid Chuck sketch didn't win!

=D
cecils_pupils- June 4, 2010 at 8:54 am
fucking awesome
joe sons balls- June 4, 2010 at 8:48 am
as usual the shittiest one wins. the machida or gsp shouldve won.
831 Father- June 4, 2010 at 8:17 am
@DangadaDang: I'll say it every time, anyone who posts worthless, unrelated posts to get some attention is even more worthless than thisredengine. Congrats, buddy.
fatbellyfrank- June 4, 2010 at 8:15 am
I just wanna job at the sweatshop that make's em
llbunbaoll- June 4, 2010 at 8:11 am

ReX13- June 4, 2010 at 8:08 am
PortlandMMA>> I wonder if CagePotato could claim that market....
