Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Matt Hughes Action Figure Looks Accurate, Creepy

(‘Now where’d that pussy G.I. Joe run off to?’)

Thanks to the good people at Round 5, Matt Hughes now has his own action figure. He joins Randy Couture, Tito Ortiz, and “Rampage” Jackson as the few MMA fighters to be immortalized in a figurine with oversized head, hands, and feet. That’s how you know you’ve made it in this business.

While Round 5 has done an excellent job of capturing the essence of Matt Hughes, they’ve also succeeded at freaking me out. Having one of these in my home would ensure that I never get a good night’s sleep again. I’d constantly be worried that I would wake up in the middle of the night and the Matt Hughes figurine would be standing on my chest, hands on hips, watching and judging me. Look at his eyes. Notice how they seem to follow you. That’s some Twilight Zone shit right there.

Anyway, Hughes is happy with it, according to a recent blog post at He’s also trying to split his time between preparing for his bout with Thiago Alves and farming. Seriously:

First I want to apologize for not getting the blog up as quick as I wanted. Been working out three times a day and trying to help my brother plant corn this week. We’ve got all the anhydrous on and only about 130 acres of corn in the ground. So now we just have to wait for it to dry up.

Been training down at the gym, that’s going great. Robbie’s getting ready for a fight. Jeremy Horn is also there and brought three of his own guys with him to train for his upcoming UFC fight. So I’ve been somewhat burning the candle at both ends and also trying to spend time with the family.

Round 5 has released their action figures and I think they turned out really good. We got a couple hundred of them in and we’re going to sell them from the store.

Spending time with the family, training three times a day, planting corn — are there even that many hours in the day? Say what you will about Hughes, but don’t call him lazy. Honestly, don’t do it. If you do the action figure comes to life and claws out your eyes. I think there’s a gypsy curse involved.

Those gypsies. They ruin it for everybody.

To Old Bald and Irish: Correction on the suitcase that comes with the Ortiz figure, it only has 4 million dollars, half of it went to taxes!

Does the doll freak out every time an inside leg kick is thrown?

I'd say that if you pull the string it comes up with some lame ass excuse as to why he lost to GSP, E.g. "I was havin a bad night." or, "Too much corn plantin', not enough mat humpin'." and the ever popular "Man I hate Matt Serra."

Big Chris, ur really obsessed with pulling on Matt Hughes' thingy aren't you?

You pull the string and it says..."read the story of Esther and tell me who I am in the story....Did you guess the Queen? If you did you are correct...cause I am the Queen!!"

"a figurine with oversized head, hands, and feet"

Except for the Tito Ortiz figure. That one already has an over-sized head.

And on the Tito figure, when you pull it's string, it bitches about how it's not getting paid enough.

Tito comes with accesories too! An anatomicaly correct Jenna Jameson Barbie doll (with real hair!) and a suitcase full of $8 million.

What I want to know is, Does it preach gospel at you whenever it is displeased?

This is why I love Cage Potato. No other MMA site is going to deliver me the satisfying news of a creepy Matt Hughes doll.

Maybe if matt's hands were that big, he might of landed a punch on GSP. At least the head size is dead on...oversized not by a long shot.

I'm just glad it isn't some kind of freaky sex doll.

Although, that kind of gives me an idea for a Chris Leben sex doll, complete with a working ass...

I wonder if you pull a string and it does a verbal tapout....or a cry for help any time you put it around the GSP toy.....I TAP!! I TAP!!
