As has been clear to fans of the UFC for some time now, the organization is holding more and more events every year. The problem with this over-saturation is that it can lead to some cards that lack the firepower of others. The best solution for such events is to drink your way through them, and that is where CagePotato has you covered. After considerable research, taste testing, and taking into account various factors such as nicknames, fighting styles, and personality traits, here are 12 cocktail recipes to enjoy based on the UFC fighters you support…

Lyoto Machida
Dragon Piss

2 ounces Cognac

Pour in a glass over ice, mix and watch the magical transformation. Down a few of these, and you’ll be kissing whoever’s closest to you.

Ronda Rousey
The Bitch Slap

1 ounce Vodka
1 ounce Gin
1 ounce Everclear

Splash of 7-Up

Mix all ingredients together in a glass over ice. This drink may put you down and submit you, just like Rowdy.

Donald Cerrone

A splash of soda water

Conor McGregor
Irish Car Bomb
3/4 pint of Guinness

Alan Belcher
Johnny Cash

3 ounces bourbon

Shake ingredients and then strain into a glass. This drink will mess you up worse than his tattoo.

Robbie Lawler

Demetrious Johnson
The Mighty Mouse
3/4 ounce cinnamon schnapps
3/4 ounce Jaegermeister
1/4 ounce Everclear

In a 2 ounce shot glass start with the cinnamon schnapps, then pour in the Jaegermeister, top with Everclear, light on fire, then blow out the flame and drink the shot. Powerful but small, like Johnson himself.
