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

Happy Thanksgiving, Potato Nation!

(Giblets, motherfucker!)

As we sit down to enjoy this great feast — a representation of the bounties the past year has provided — we thought it would be fun if we all went around the table and listed the things we’re thankful for. First and foremost, we’re thankful for all of you, who swing by every day (or at least every week, right?) to read our posts and make your adorable little opinions known. We’re thankful for the fighters who risk life and limb to entertain us in the name of the greatest sport in the world. We’re thankful for our families for their love and support, and our friends for making life interesting. We’re thankful for our good health, and our general lack of horrible infections. We’re thankful that we don’t live inside War Machine‘s head. We’re thankful for all the men and women of the U.S. armed forces who might be spending the holiday very far from home. And of course, we’re thankful to have jobs that don’t require us to put on pants or even get out of bed most days. (War laptops!)

Okay, your turn…

Thank you for the wonderful article! I want to buy the <a href=""> 360$ - 2010 La Sposa Larisa Wedding Gown</a>. Can you tell me where I can buy it at a low price? I will be married soon.

as far as the comments from "exp"

I consider myself fortunate there are the strong among us who do UNSPEAKABLE things to the people who would do us harm, because the terrorists would do worse to us if they though they could get away with it...

As far as committing "war crimes" - so far when these incidents come to light, the persons responsible have been punished.

We're not fighting the boy scouts over there OK.

Bad things happen to the enemy in war.... lets not forget about Daniel Pearl, or Nicholas Berg, or the countless civilians who were murdered by Abu Musab al-Zarqawi (Al-Queda in Iraq). These people are simple looking for an excuse to murder people, and must be stopped.

Whats done is done - the US is in Iraq and that can't be undone. Support your troops... they don't want to be there anymore than the Iraq's want them there, but there's a job to finish. anything other than restoration of democratic and lawful government will end in civil war and the deaths of untold non-combatants.

If an outside observer could add his 2 cents worth...

For all concerned with my background, I"m A Canadian (insert joke here), who is an ex-infantry soldier...

We are fortunate in North America to have the luxury of not seeing the human misery of war on our soil 1st hand.
Whether or not you agree with the cause, you should support the troops who fight there - because of what they do, you don't have to fight at home.

The fact is, whether the reasons are right or wrong, these folks pay the price there so we don't have to.

Not supporting ( and frankly disrespecting) the people that fight and die for your interests everyday is terrible, its like yelling at the call center worker when there's a mistake on your cable bill. He's just there doing a job and giving him a hard time is neither productive nor kind.

As far as the foreign policy of you government goes, It's too bad that it seems armed conflict comes as so easy an option...I suspect howeverthere are MANY times when the mere threat of intervention has saved much needless suffering.

For the record Iraq IS wrong, but given the information at the time it seemed like the best way to make the world safer... We now know it was based on lies...

Afganistan is a justified conflict. Even if the only no reason was to remove a tyranical and brutally oppresive government from a volatile region. History will show that we were right there.

Sometimes leaders have to prove from time to time that they can back up their words with action, and the only thing needed for EVIL to triumph is for GOOD men to do NOTHING.

I for one am grateful to the members of the American military who have the courage to do what needs to be done, without asking themselves if we all DESERVE their sacrifice.

@ UFCfan I dont agree with much you say on this site (when it comes to your posts on MMA) but I will say this.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE TO OUR COUNTRY I am honored to share veteran status with you and everyone in your family. My Grandfather served in WWII at Anzio and my Uncle served in Vietnam. I served along side quite a few gulf war veterans and they were a generation I always admired. Its familys like ours that have made the sacrifices we have so that spineless bleeding heart idiots like esp can live in the comfort of their mommies home. Never will they know the hardships nor the honor, courage, and commitment that it takes to serve and I thank God for that.

@Clinch. What's wrong with you? Have you no respect for the constitution sir? I am not white nor black so sorry got you there. The war in Iraq and Afghanistan is illegal. We have killed and committed crimes. Bring back the force and try the criminals. Put them on a ship next to bankers and sink that ship!

Not black or white huh, well its always you low rent simple minded assholes that stoop to race baiting. I love how you say WE have killed and commited crimes. You didnt do anything but sit on your ass and smoke what few brain cells you have left. Then you bring religion into it when you talked to JamesTChrist when the fuck did anyone say anything about religion (something you need). What are you taking talking point from Joe fucking Rogan, you and him got it all figured out huh. You two are more enlightened than all of us, you got it all figured out. Dont worry kid one day you may grow up and see the error of your ways its too bad that day will probably be when you are roasting in hell. You and your kind dont have the fortitude to put me on a ship and sink it without me and men like me you would be speaking another language and praying towards mecca while you burn the clits off of your wives and treat them like second class citizens. Wake up man there are terrorists out there who want you dead. Take away the military and lets see what happens I promise you will be the first KIA and then lets see you cry to the "war criminals" to save your sorry worthless ass. You have no backbone bitch I will give you my info call me lets have a debate and we will see who is educated and who gets owned. I dont take my talking points from youtube.
UncleSamsMisguidedChild- December 2, 2009 at 7:27 pm
exp man you are delusional I need to be tried for war crimes huh? And you dont have the cahones to debate me, fine I win by default. This is an MMA site dipshit Im sorry I stooped to your level. I look forward to the day that we get a divorce in this country. You bleeding heart fucktards can see how you get along without real MEN to protect you. You can try and go hold hands with the extremist Muslims and see how that pans out, youll all just get along right...

ps War MMA!!!!
JamesTChrist- December 2, 2009 at 3:58 pm
Awesome, dude. You keep hittin those hot buttons! Enjoy the internet, dipshit!
exp- December 2, 2009 at 3:13 pm
Well. Whatever. I am out of here. You sheeple are a waste of my time anyway. Thanks CagePotato for a great forum though. They do need to give smart people incentive to participate. Not some traitor vets who are just upset they are not being worshiped like gods for their crimes. Karma is going to catch you sometime. Whether it's a truck at night or cancer, it's coming!

What in the blue are you talking about Christ? You do know that Jesus Christ is really the sun that you are worshiping right?

@ exp
I should have known. The internet can't be trusted. Why must you play with our emotions. And to think, we could've been the number one most commented post

@ exp

There is no excuse for what is wrong with you, that is all i have to say.
JamesTChrist- December 2, 2009 at 5:51 am
@ exp
You've convinced me. I'm putting in my two weeks as of now. Goodbye Iraq, I will miss you.
I'm thinking we could maybe go to a protest this week, since our lives are empty and we need something to do to make us seem enlightened, and not like some dipshit overpriveleged white dudes
exp- December 1, 2009 at 8:24 pm
Marines, Vets, anyone who claims to be in service for this country, if you go to an illegal war, you are against the constitution of the U.S. and need to be tried for war crimes. I am not a liberal. I am in full support of our constitution. Not like Republicans and Democrats who piss on it.

UFC Fan. You are obviously a dangerous man. I wouldn't be surprised to see your ugly face in the news someday for killing minorities or something like that.

The other guy, I don't need to debate you. The debate is over. It's called the constitution! You are either for it or against it, in which case there are ways to deal with you, like put you in a remote island or deport you to Afghanistan with no weapon so they can roast you. Ignorant blood sucking vampires like you make me sick.
UFC fan- November 30, 2009 at 9:02 pm
I hear you Marine.
It's just all the military bearing in the world that I had just goes out the window when I hear fucktards like him talk his shit, I come from a long line of military in my family and we do not tolerate pissants like him. My grandfather served in WWII, my uncle in WWII, and korea, my father did 3 tours in NAM, and I am a Persian Gulf War vet, my bro in law worked in the morgue and the "vegetable garden" in NAM as well and he deserves much better than to have that kind of crap spewed about him or any of us, so this kind of thing makes me almost regret that I defended HIS rights to be an asshole, and unlike you I would not waste my breathe on him in person to debate his crazy talk....I already established what I want done, BUT if you ever get the chance to talk with him face to face let me know how far your calm interior could stand it before you had to stand up and crush him like a bug ok? :)
UncleSamsMisguidedChild- November 30, 2009 at 1:44 pm
ps I heard they were talking about mixed martial arts on this website.
UncleSamsMisguidedChild- November 30, 2009 at 1:30 pm
UFC fan you are not helping the cause with all of your threats. The deal here is that exp has grown up on the liberal tit. He has had his professors inundate him with their liberal views. It doesnt help either that the Hollywood crowd has put out movie after movie spewing anti-American rhetoric. I think all of this combined with high levels of estrogen pulsing through exp's body has made him the "man" he is today. Its really not his fault that he didnt have anyone to show him how to be a man, no backyard catch with a football or hunting trips. He thinks he has it all figured out and we should let him think that. Dont lose sleep man remember when these MTV generation Abercrombie and Fitch metrosexual little girls act out they want you to blow up and act foolish. You lost man you made patriots and vets look bad. Remember from this day forward to argue responsibly the little try at communism that is happining in our country will fail and future generations will learn from our mistakes, but telling exp that your going to kill him over and over is only helping his little psychobabble little cause.

Sgt USMC OIF 1 2 and 3 and didnt join for a GI bill and never killed an innocent nor saw it happen in my 21 months of service in the sand box.

also exp man go talk to a vet and express your concerns let him tell you the real story please dont base your opinion of our nations military veterans on a fucking youtube video. If you are as inteligent and open minded as you say you are you wouldnt base your views of the war off what you see on the damn internet and see on CNN. Hey if you want to meet with me or call me I will debate you anyday and I give you my word as a 31 year old man that I will not cause you any bodily harm.

Funny. @UFC Fan. You say you are going to beat me up. Haha. Have you heard of camera? The technology has advanced but I am sure people who don't read books or can't think of anything else but how to kill other people wouldn't know that.

You think very highly of yourself sir. Vet, hero? Haha. You are like a leech. Human kind will never move to the next level as long as we have wars. Of course, people like you will be extinct soon. People are waking up, and you and anyone who supports illegal wars will join the banksters as we throw you all into the sea. Go mess up some other country loser.

You guys get along as well as an old man and a midget
UFC fan- November 29, 2009 at 11:10 pm
I don't think you understand the definition of a troll to begin with, so you are dumbass for that alone.
How will you sue me if you don't even know my name, and you won't ever know my name or address or anything else. The fact is you will talk your shit to the wrong person and it might be me, and I won't be giving you details of my life before I stomp a mudhole in your weak ass. So again you are stupid little nothing of a human being.
No they don't call people like me cattle THEY call me hero, and they call me vet, and THEY have several days in the year celebrating what I and millions others have done, what day do they have for you besides gay pride week? again you are know nothing moron with a vendetta, and you are in the minority.
I love that we dropped a bomb in the past, and I love that we would any day, without the BOMB there would have been more deaths that you hate so much...again you are a know nothing loser pacifist.
If you didn't intend to engage in this then why did you? Cause all you have done is show your ass, if this is the best you can do is argue politics and bullshit conspiracy theories then you need to go back to lurking, because ( yet again) you are dumbfuck loser.
I would like to know what " dead weight " you have carried, or even what you have done for society. I get the feeling the only thing you have done is write an essay on it and get up before your college pimple faced peers, and talk shit till the professor said "ENOUGH sit down!" The most you have done is go out for pizza while the chess club staged an all nighter. You are dumbass kid, and I hope you get the beating of your life daily for your mouth, and if you think I threaten you on here 10 times or more just wait till the real world gets a hold of you loser. Why don't you go live in another country you piece of shit?
exp- November 29, 2009 at 3:29 pm
@UFC Fan. Like I said, you are a troll. Listen. I'll say it to your face and will give you the chance to punch me. Then I'll sue you for everything you've got. This is America man. It's not your back alley where you can beat people up for their their thoughs. People like you don't really worry me. You are what the elite call cattle. You'll go along with whatever they put in front of you. Dropping A bomb on other countries? Why not. Killing millions of people worldwide? Why not? Letting the banksters rob us blind? That's not bad either. Right? You are a troll and not worth my time.

To the other guy. I didn't intend to engage in this discussion. Before thanksgiving, I never even left a message on this site. I enjoy CagePotato for MMA not arguing with morons like UFC Fan.

Listen. As long as we are treating these mercenaries who kill cause they can't do anything else like heroes, we are in trouble. UFC fan has responded to me like 10 times. each time threatening me, whether it's killing or beating me up. It just shows this guy and his people are so useless, they are just a dead weight for society. Their best way to feel important? Make up a boogey man and kill people. Very sad way to live life. Unfortunately, the rest of us have to handle their dead weight.

Even though thanksgiving is not celebrated here in England, I am thankful for this website, my health and the fighters who risk serious injury bringing us THE best sport in world. Of course i am thankful to no longer be Starbucks' bitch as i quit my manager job in search of a hopeful career into music.

Anyway, enough about me, after an awesome year of reading your hilarious posts Ben, i am proud to finally introduce myself :)
