Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

MMA Fighter Ross Clifton Reportedly Dead at 32

(R.I.P., big fella)

Ross Clifton, the MMA fighter perhaps best known for his bout with Ken Shamrock at a February Wargods event, is reportedly dead of a heart attack at 32, according to MMA Weekly.  He was found by his wife on Friday morning.  His trainer, Cal Worsham, confirmed the news and described Clifton as "a jovial teddy bear in the body of a grizzly."  Clifton began his pro career in 2001 and most recently lost via first-round TKO against Rick Vardell in July.  Thoughts, prayers, whatever you do…

you admit he was a dick, but you hate us for being honest about how WE fell about his death? man you are one fucked up person, at least WE are honest and open with our opinions, you are wishy washy little girl..
And you think that by him climbing into the ring that makes him better than you or me? you are stupid uneducated fucktard....all that made him was a fat fool who made a name for himself getting beat on by hasbeens and dying in the public eye. now that may be better than you but you goddamn sure don't speak for me or represent my demographic, so take your highhorse and ride that bitch outta town.

Oh, internet. Thank you for the great gift of anonymous hyenas, wheezing away at the death of an overweight man who dared step into a cage and do something that they could not for fear of having to wash the Cheeto dust out of their fingernails.

Sad for his wife and family. Guy seemed like a poor loser (according to the video of the Shamrock fight, shoving Ken away after he went up to say "hey" after) and was clearly a piss poor fighter, but he had the balls to do something most of the anemic keyboard commandos here would never be able to pull themselves away from Warcraft to even attempt.

His last fight was against his heart....the heart won, it attacked and he had NOTHING for it. Maybe next time ( in hell ) fatboy. To bad he didn't take nateisretarded with him.

The Grizz was the man, a true gentle giant.

I love all these fucks that act superior to everyone else because they feign sadness at the death of some guy they knew nothing about. Honestly, what do you people know about him other than his name? It's not like he got hit by a bus. he died from something that was a direct result of his overeating. How many people out there die from starvation every day? do those people even cross your mind or do you only feel sadness for people who's names you know. There's a reason why people like him are called MORBIDLY obese. it's because being that fat can kill them. If anything you should be mad at this guy for not giving enough of a shit about his family to lay off the damn hamburgers.

I can honestly say that I am totally un affected by this man's passing. But with that being said, I do love a good joke. I hope they serve beer in hell.

We are all doomed to die. Our time here is fleeting. No more, no less.

If you come to a site named "cagepotato" looking for the answers to life, you are a complete tool. Take your superiority and shove it up your ass. Its, the internet, home of keyboard warriors, ITG, and successfull trolls.

@ Give It Up:

Word. I know for a fact that UFC fan is a near 40-year-old fat fucking loser who is a nobody in the real world. Probably has to pay for sex too.
Give It Up- September 6, 2009 at 10:07 am
@ cuntalope, did i say you were being disrespectful or give you some speech about how you should be honoring this dude, no. all i said was that you were trying way too hard.

and @clutchy hopkins, you do have to deal with these people in real life, but you dont know it because their "crazy" antics dont come out until they are behind the safety of their computer.
clutchy hopkins- September 6, 2009 at 8:05 am
some people on here are the exact example of people i would think are fucking useless, so glad i dont gotta deal with yas in real life

Looks like Shamrock beat this guy's heart to a living death.

what is dan quinn to do?
sp00ki kabuki- September 5, 2009 at 11:14 pm
first of all, i am saddened that a man with a family died at such a young age, but... he was friends with dan quinn right? why didnt dan tell his "friend" about the miracle cure that melted 68 lbs from his uncle bob johnson. it probly woulda saved his life. also, if quinn is such a profit, y didnt he see this comming and do somthin?

It seems I have offended such class acts as b2tharad, and M1-grovel, and lets not leave out nategetsirate. Oh my what a shame. hey boys kiss my ass. Grow up, and learn that because other people don't feel the same as you about humanity or the fools who live in it, it doesn't mean we cant be friends.....the reason we cant be friends is cause you boys are a bunch fucking pussies. Now continue to whine and act all holier than thou and see what it gets you? Nothing but grief, learn to let shit that does NOT effect your life slide off and maybe you will live longer, BUT I seriously wouldn't give a fuck if you don't.
I think you 3 need to have a candle-light vigil outside his house, and circle jerk each other.
Cuntalope- September 5, 2009 at 10:56 pm
lol if i wanted attention id say something more offensive like "RIP you fat fucking can", just making wise cracks, not thinking i'm clever. Obviously moral fags like you are a tad bit sensitive especially when it comes to the death of someone you didn't know but you'll say "RIP Ross Clifton" like you ever really gave a shit about the guy. Fuck you!

Sad... both the passing of a young man and this comment section.
Give It Up- September 5, 2009 at 9:59 pm
@ cuntalope, you are trying WAY too hard. you wanted someone to give you a pat on the back for your cleverness but all you get is a shut the fuck up.

doesn't matter though, you just want attention anyway you can get it. so with that, you are welcome.

Obviously it sucks boys, he could have avoided it though. Being that overweight is out of control. Doctors guaranteed told him hes at high risk of heart disease/failure and yet he failed to do something about it. Regardless of who it is though and the cause of death, 32 is way too young to die.

There are times when I love this site, and there are times when you other motherfuckers straight disgust me.
Cuntalope- September 5, 2009 at 8:51 pm
He died of a broken heart.
clutchy hopkins- September 5, 2009 at 8:48 pm
holy fuck boys..

KillDozer- September 5, 2009 at 8:32 pm
damn, I'm not a doctor or anything, but that dude was at least 150 lbs overweight. No way his heart would allow him to train and do other stuff fighters do. Sad.

He should have called Jenna.
Cuntalope- September 5, 2009 at 8:28 pm
He lived life to the fattest.
