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

GIF Party: MMA Fail 101


Somehow, you’ve managed to achieve victory.  You are tired  and perhaps banged up, but you wish to enthusiastically demonstrate how important the win was for you.  A good robot dance or Point Up To The Man would be sufficient; going all out could work out against you.  Choose your next actions carefully.


A good backflip celebration makes an impression, and shows that you still had explosiveness left in the tank after you’ve beaten your opponent.  Mr PRIDE had a good one.  So does GSP.  Wait, this just in…

Even GSP can botch the backflip celebration.

We’re pretty sure impaling yourself on your win trophies and ending your career would be the definition of irony in MMA.

“Hey you guys I won!  I HATE MY PELVIS!”

Lesnar will never backflip in celebration.  This is why.

Of course, you don’t have to try a backflip to fail at celebrating.  The great Mark Coleman illustrates:

Sure, you can be excited for the win.  Just don’t jettison your coordination completely until you’re out of the arena, maybe?

Whatever, just look at that grin.  He’s so happy.


So there you have it, Nation:  MMA Fail 101.  Fun, huh?  Best part is, we still have plenty of fighters’ embarrassing moments left.  Good times.  Until Volume 2, you bastards, just keep in mind:

“Try again.  Fail again.  Fail better.” -Samuel Beckett

Everyone still thinks that Jennum was trying to do some kind of flip kick, but the truth is he was really trying to use his mullet as a weapon.

can we get a tribute to akira shoji? that guy was fucking awesome in every sense of the word (except the one where awesome means you win a lot).

Wait, did that flip actually end Dokonjotoolongtotype Mishima's career?

I hate on the bad ones, so I'll give props to the good ones. This was a good one.

Trophy guy probably wins, but there are a whole lot of fighters who came close to becoming statistics in this series. This made my spine hurt.

"Sometimes the pocket chases you down..." LOL.

"..a toe in the manhole clinched it." Ha. I see what you did there.

Good post, CP!

When people shit on CP and bitch about how terrible everything is on this site I will reference articles like this as justification for my daily reading. Fun read. This article definitely gets a "nice, playa" from me.

Butterbean kicks like Rex!
