Gird Your Loins, TapouT is Back for Season Two


(Props: MMA Scraps)

This trailer for season two of “TapouT” (premiering July 30th) on Versus is absolutely perfect. I can’t imagine a more effective way of capturing how incredibly annoying this show is. Stupid catch phrases, mind-numbing repetition, vague promises of violence, facepaint, wigs, glimpses of girls in their underwear and brief scenes of actual MMA — that’s the show all right.

It takes a lot to create something MMA-related that I won’t watch. TapouT, by sheer cloying perseverance, has done it. For that, I salute them. Having saluted them, I will now go consult the TV Guide to see if there is anything else on that night. If there isn’t, I will read TV Guide from cover to cover. Anything so long as I don’t have to endure an hour’s worth of grown men who are dressed for the world’s worst Halloween party screaming at me as they ride around in a bus for indistinct reasons. I had enough of that during my childhood, thank you very much.

Lenny I think your GF jus wanted you to drop a deuce on her chest or something, sounds like vague innuendo, I mean no one would actually want to own a piece of TapouT gear would they?

"Ever since I can remember, Those guys have been set up outside fights selling their shit, going on radio and advertising events that get overlooked by the mainstream."

What ??? Since the beginning of last season? Who keeps buying these idiots gear and watching their show?

My GF said she wanted a TapouT hoodie.... we don't see each other anymore.

Nice, you guys were giving me hope for humanity but then I saw this:

"They may seem like off the wall characters but at least they are being theirselves and not trying to pretend. I am definatley jealous that those guys get to do all this awesome shit and they are entrepreneurs none of you can say that you are doing what you love and getting paid for it."

Because they ARE characters. Fake names? Costumes? Facepaint? Wigs?
There is nothing cool about it. They're not crazy, they're just lame.
Drop the tired ass bozo act and just do your thing, then maybe I'd watch the show.

FlimDrunk: it has never been put better than that!

NealTaflinger: I think i agree with you, they just seem like they're playing characters whenever i see them. Show me a video of them hanging out pre-fame wearing all that crap and then i'll believe they are being themselves.
NealTaflinger- July 24, 2008 at 1:47 pm
"they are being theirselves and not trying to pretend." Yeah, in makeup and costumes.

I am doing what I love and I get paid for it.

I just wish I found stuff as funny as Mask does.

Ever since I can remember, Those guys have been set up outside fights selling their shit, going on radio and advertising events that get overlooked by the mainstream. It's easy to jump on board and talk shit about something you have no idea about. They have been outspoken supporters of OUR sport since the early 90's. If they want to put make up on and wear wigs and be larger then life, let em. I think they deserve to act how they want.

Tapout is a perfect example of a bunch of idiots promoting something cool while completely misunderstanding what's cool about it.

you don't need a comma before the "and"

you are the lowest form of life...an internet spelling nazi douche

I tried to DVR Tapout once and an error message popped up suggesting I go punch myself in the taint instead.
Matt- July 24, 2008 at 6:15 am
The show isn't that bad. but it does irritate me from time to time.
haraiman- July 24, 2008 at 5:41 am
Oh, and learn how to spell. The word you are looking for is their, not there.

To fuck Says,

Eat a dick. People are entitled to their opinion. If you don't like it go join a hate group.
FUCK- July 24, 2008 at 2:36 am
Black Sheep go suck there nuts some more plz lol

I like the TapouT show for the simple reason we get a 1st look at the new stars of tomorrow. Cowboy who was one of the 1st features on the show is on the verge of a WEC championship. I think they do great things for young fighters. They are annoying so what, they are great for the sport. I like seeing fights, I can endure a few (ok many) minutes of craziness to see a fight.
Clue-by-Four- July 24, 2008 at 2:03 am
Three "men" named Mascara, Bitchass and Buttrape acting like they're 10 years old and getting paid to do it. Only in America :/

Please die in a fire you wastes of skin.
Black Sheep- July 24, 2008 at 1:51 am
I guess ill be the first to disagree. I think the show is pretty cool I also think Mask, Punkass, and Skyscrape seem like pretty cool cats. They may seem like off the wall characters but at least they are being theirselves and not trying to pretend. I am definatley jealous that those guys get to do all this awesome shit and they are entrepreneurs none of you can say that you are doing what you love and getting paid for it.

WAR MASK I still buy your shit
Wesley B.- July 24, 2008 at 12:26 am
I totally disagree. I think the show is hilarious. "COWWWWWBOUY!!!!"
"SUNNNSHINE!!!!"

And all along I thought the guys in face paint and clown wigs were special needs children being given ringside seats to UFC events...
Reid- July 24, 2008 at 12:03 am
LOL!! You could not have described this show any better. I made it about five minutes into an episode last season before I changed the channel, and I'll normally watch anything MMA-related over something non-MMA any day of the week. I couldn't believe how bad it was. I'll never spend a dime on Tapout as long as their affiliated with this show.
captain asshammer- July 23, 2008 at 11:58 pm
somebody kill these fucks
M.C.- July 23, 2008 at 11:41 pm
That was re-God-Damn-diculous. I think the vid itself was most of the 2nd season.
Mask- July 23, 2008 at 10:27 pm
This post needs more snipes about TapouT revenues being blown on giant mounds of sweet, sweet Peruvian cocaine.
