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

I’m Totally Up Out This B*tch, You Guys

(Warm up the bus. Pic: Combat Lifestyle)

Best part of it being my last day contributing to this website? Being able to blatantly violate a CagePotato ban without fearing any reprisals from the powers that be. Boom, you guys. Makes me feel a little bit like Tito Ortiz, to tell you the truth. Worst part of it being my last day contributing to this website? That’s probably the last time I’ll ever get to use the word bitch in a headline. My new employer has already laid down the law in terms of the swears, even the minor league ones. That’s the bad news. The good news, at least for you, is this: My understanding is that  (drum roll, please) our friend ReX13 has agreed to step in to replace me as a daily contributor to this site. I know he’ll do a great job.

I have to say I’m going to miss you dudes. Even you, trolls and Russian computer spam commenters. But before we get all weepy and start slapping each other on the back while exchanging awkward bro grabs, keep in mind that I still should be pretty easy to find. You know, if you feel like it. Professionally and personally, I’m going to miss the spirited back-and-forth that goes on both out front and behind the scenes at this website. I’m going to miss the guys I work with who – regardless of what some of you think – are all really cool dudes. I’m even going to miss getting my ass handed to me in the comments section now and then. Nah, jokes. I’m actually not going to miss that at all.

Above all else, the things I think I’m going to miss most are pissing you off with my politics, really pissing you off with my meaningless pound-for-pound rankings and really, really pissing you off by not being Ben Fowlkes. That stuff was fun and I’ll think on it often. It’s been just a little more than a year since I started working at the Potato, but our lasting friendships and the damage I’ve done to my personal credibility make it seem much, much longer than that.

My advice moving forward? Be kind to ReXy. And Mike. And Chris and Seth and Jason. And even BG. This shit ain’t as easy as it looks and all those guys work harder than you know trying to keep you entertained, even though many of you appear not to want to be entertained at all. At its best, I think this website fills a valuable niche in our dark little corner of the web. Somebody’s got to point out when the people in this industry say ridiculous shit, wear ridiculous T-shirts and marry ridiculous porn stars. That somebody, as far as I’m concerned is CagePotato and I hope it continues to fill that need long after we’ve all grown up and taken part time jobs at major corporations.

Anyway, thanks for being so good to me, y’all. I’m gone.

Awww, thanks man! I expect to see you on MMA Live soon. Or at least help Gross with his podcast. We'll try our best to hold down the fort.

Bring back Fowlkes.

"Are you not entertained?!"
aahhh, sad to see you go CD because you are a funny ass dude. You are also a great MMA writer and even if I disagree sometimes with your opinions, you always justify them well. Good luck and congrats.

I liked the work Chad but if I ever see you in the street all you'll get in a mean mug and a Stockton heybuddy.

After reading the article and comments I think what the CP readers want is more porn references and less Canadian politics. Am I right, you guys?
DangadaDang- May 21, 2011 at 9:01 am
I thought we were past writing you guys at the end of titles, you guys
artigale- May 21, 2011 at 8:24 am
You know if you paid your writers better than free cheetos and a month's subscription to, you might be able to keep some people around! That or lock them in a 4x4 cube like ya'll did old dad....
OptimusGryme- May 21, 2011 at 2:02 am
I registered just so i could tell you how much of a good writer and witty individual you were for this, the one article i was aware of you writing. Peace out you gutless faggot
Dmonicideals- May 20, 2011 at 10:57 pm
You mean this website isn't just a bunch of random douches who sent in articles? There's like.... "contributors"?

You learn something new every day.
stopdrinkingpee- May 20, 2011 at 9:47 pm
Peace, Chad, it's been real. Naturally I was disappointed you were not Ben Fowlkes, but I enjoyed your stay here. Good luck going forward.
k-onda- May 20, 2011 at 6:48 pm
Well I'm surprised. I didn't think this site'd be able to find someone worse to take over. Couldn't be, right? Well, they've done just that - one in a million, this can't be accidental. Everyone here sucks!
RwilsonR- May 20, 2011 at 6:34 pm
Good luck to you Chad. Your politics will be welcomed with open arms at MSNBC. You did okay for yourslef here, and will miss you accordingly.
macreadysshack- May 20, 2011 at 6:33 pm
By the way, Chad, you're a funny guy and a good writer. Good luck, man. I would hate to be on the receiving end of this comments section. Enjoy civilized society!
macreadysshack- May 20, 2011 at 6:30 pm
What Drano said.
LordCoSaX- May 20, 2011 at 6:11 pm
Too bad. CD was pretty good on the bum rush.
Meaot- May 20, 2011 at 5:49 pm
Bye Chad, sorry I could never bring myself to call you Dad...
NotReadyStatus- May 20, 2011 at 5:40 pm
Don't worry. You never pissed me off. I kind of never noticed you were here at all...
PurplePickle- May 20, 2011 at 5:36 pm
Fuck you Dundas.
Actually good luck and congratulations dude, I'm one of your most lukewarm fans.
ihateemo- May 20, 2011 at 5:25 pm
"Have a good one Chad. I suspect I enjoyed some of your articles at some time in the past."

Oh man, I laughed long and hard at that. I agree with the sentiment as well. Good luck Chad.
fatbellyfrank- May 20, 2011 at 4:39 pm
The macho man died?
Oh and all the best Chad, and good luck to Rex, tho Rexy boy dont need luck, he got quality
Nut Puncher 9000- May 20, 2011 at 4:35 pm
@SethF - Chad will be the "Old Step Dad" because even though he did his job, nobody really loved him anyway.
Nut Puncher 9000- May 20, 2011 at 4:32 pm
I think the real HOLY SHIT is seeing a comment from OBI...
