Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

KSW 19 Recap: Multiverse – 1 Dignity – 0

Is there ANYTHING about this man that makes him unqualified to talk about the infinitely accelerating current of creativity? Didn’t think so.

If last night taught us anything, it’s that some things never change. Nick Diaz will be Nick Diaz. Kimbo Slice will crush cans. And literally anything that involves Bob Sapp will lack anything that resembles dignity. What a universe we live in.

But today is Mother’s Day, so I’m going to try to be somewhat positive for a few sentences. The good news to come out of this event is that Matt Horwich managed to snap a four fight skid with a third round TKO over Poland’s own Antoni Chmielewski, who was 22-8 coming into this fight. Horwich has always been an interesting character, sort of a non-juiced up hippy Ultimate Warrior. Even though he’s too crazy for most major promotions to take a chance on him (not to mention his pedestrian 27-21 record), he fits in just fine with KSW’s roster. That wouldn’t usually be intended as a compliment, but in whatever section of the multiverse Matt Horwich is from, it is.

Okay, positive sentences over. Time to talk about Bob Sapp vs. Mariusz Pudzianowski.

I think it’s safe to say that Bob Sapp can’t do anything right at this point in his career, except be a large, scary looking guy that has zero chance of winning and even less of a chance of hurting his opponent. At the weigh-ins, he put a picture of Pudzianowski on a (presumably uncooked) chicken. See, because he thinks Mariusz is “chicken”, get it? It’s not exactly the most clever way to mock someone- especially when you remember that Bob Sapp just tapped out to a double leg takedown- but he clearly put far more effort into that than he did training.

Perhaps it’s only because he was fighting Bob Sapp, but Mariusz seems to have made strides in his standup. I’m not saying he’s ready for legit competition or anything, but still, props to him for taking this fight seriously. You know the drill by now: Sapp gets caught, Sapp covers up and waits for the “fight” to end, the referee decides that the fight should stop before Bob Sapp actually takes some kind of damage (even though Pudzianowski initially doesn’t oblige), and then everyone is laughing and giving out bro-grabs afterwards, seemingly forgetting that Sapp was “out” just a few seconds ago.

As KSW likes to say, biznes jak zwykle. At least I think it’s them that says that.

big props to JudgeHolden for speaking what I think is a viable and depressing as hell version of the truth.

Hottie at 1:25 was not impressed by anyone's performance.

And it's not like this is the only place to read about MMA news--there are a dozen other sites. Why alienate your fan-base?
Of all the internet churches I can go to worship the god of MMA current events, I originally selected CagePotato because the minister had hilarious sermons and the congregation was filled with funny motherfuckers who knew their MMA. Nowadays that particular minister works at a church down the street, the congregation is the main reason I keep coming back, but the church has recently started passing out fliers for Mountain Dew and in the middle of the sermons some retard takes the microphone and tells everyone to drink Big Red, and now the congregation has shrunk to a select few embittered loyalists and a bunch of new people.
The point of the extended metaphor is that you're fucking ruining your website.

So what's with all of these pop-up ads and page-redirections? I click on the "read more" button and it takes me to some bullshit ad complete with obnoxiously loud audio.

I've been reading Cage Potato long before Fowlkes left, and have continued to come here despite the increasingly hit-or-miss writing quality and format changes, but this advertising stuff is honestly a game-changer. This isn't the same as people complaining about the picture-viewer. This is more like, "I will truly stop coming to this website because it's starting to operate like a porn site."

Get your shit together, CP. What the hell are you guys thinking?
