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

Photo Gallery: 17 Amazing MMA Event Posters

Thankfully, not all MMA event posters are lunkheaded eyesores. Here’s our tribute to some of the most creative and memorable ones we’ve ever come across…

(An appropriate image for an event that featured Mirko Cro Cop, Quinton Jackson, Mark Coleman, Alistair Overeem, Antonio Rogerio Nogueira, Igor Vovchanchyn, and both Rua brothers.)

(The UFC’s artistic high point.)

(Screw college basketball. This was the most thrilling Final Four of all time.)

(Fan-made old-school boxing-style poster for UFC 102.

(DREAM 7 featured the opening round of their featherweight grand prix. Make sense now?)

(If you see one sperm knocking out some of the others with soccer-kicks, that’s Wanderlei.)

(A comic-book treatment for one of the most action-packed MMA events in history.)

(Another unofficial gem, courtesy of

(Above: The struggle to the top. Below: The payoff.)

(UFC 45: A rare detour from the UFC’s standard "dudes posing" style.)

(A tougher take on the 10-year anniversary theme…)

(…and a softer take on the fist-in-your-face theme.)

(Bushido 1′s poster paid tribute to Japan’s noble warrior heritage — kind of ironic since this was the event that gave us Cro Cop vs. Dos Caras Jr.)

(Don’t worry. Sakuraba escaped the choke, then snapped her arm with a kimura.)

(Don’t ask.)

(Quinn vs. Huckaba, player. Epic.)

Fuck yes! Limited edition hello kitty wallpaper rules!

And fuck yes, there's nothing wrong with having a relationship with a girl shaped pillow!

By weapons do you mean folding steel chairs? Cause I think they already have that...

Ass men?

@ ReX13:

Fuck yes! Japanese posters def win hands down. And, fuck yes, let them do 'roids to their hearts' content.

Fighters are grown-ass men. They know the consequences. Most of them have done/regularly use juice anyway. Why not let them have at it and quit trying to be their parents. All this feel-good, limp dick, bleeding-heart bullshit is one of the worst hangovers from the baby-boomer generation. Those old coots are retiring at long last. Are we done being piss-ants now?

And if we can get some form of combat sports using weapons going some day I will slap down whatever it costs for the ppv. Violence entertains. The more violent, the better. Non-violent entertainment is for the weak.

I just want to point out how sunken in Cyborgs eyes are. Anyone look closely at that pic. Downright simian. Yes, I am still burnt about my girl Marloes losing, ok!

The Gladiator Challenge poster is posted for purposes of irony. The juxtapositioning of the thrown-together-in-MS-paint production values v/s professionally designed and printed posters is funny on one level, and, as the caption points out, Dan "Meth is a helluva drug" Quinn is on the bill.

Seriously, folks. First, Wilmer Valderrama and now this?
MaximumSpaniard- March 16, 2010 at 12:09 pm
Why would you post that last one?

The DREAM.7 poster is definitely my favorite here. Followed closely by the GP Openweight Final Four poster.

Pride's posters were on such a scale of magnitude that geologists have attempted to triangulate their impact for years but cannot accomplish the feat for their sheer awesomeness is overwhelming

I wish Pride had a poster for Ragnarok...would be EPIC

@ aptninja comment of the month. haha

reminds me that PRIDE was superior to UFC in every possible way...

Im with Phil, no go on the Cyborg/Coenen. Sakuraba in the choke hold is gold.
Phil Baloni- March 16, 2010 at 9:27 am
cyborg/coenen & gladiator challenge bad blood = no.

that pride one with the butterfly is incredible.

First the breast feeding one and then the last one featuring a guy named 'areola'. What's on your mind, CP?
Dubus22- March 16, 2010 at 8:51 am
@ Aptninja

That's some funny shit man, respect!
ReAnimator- March 16, 2010 at 8:48 am
The GSP vs BJ one looks sort of weird as you can only see the Union Jack and not any of the rest of the Hawaiian Flag, and to make it more confusing GSP is wearing a Canadian flag instead of a Queb├ęc flag, and the flag he is wearing you can't see the maple leaf so it doesn't look any different from the polish flag. There is a lot of ambiguity there especially if you didn't know the fighters.

And sometimes sperm get lost in a man's poop canal
GEE-yuh-TEEN- March 16, 2010 at 8:41 am
UFC 94 and 102 FTW
k-onda- March 16, 2010 at 8:39 am
I dig the article, don't come anywhere near understanding the breast-feeding one, and immediately wanna know when the poster design contest is gonna be; I'm inspired.

Aptninja +1

Skeletor - How much did the FEG Marketing Group pay you for the close up of the back of your throat?
ReX13- March 16, 2010 at 8:20 am
Japanese posters WIN. What's wrong with adding a little theatrics for spice?

And you know what? I enjoy a good freak fight every now and then. Fuck it, let em all do steroids. And make the cage huge, and enclose it completely. Let's put some weapons in there. And hang the fighters from the top with rubber bands and have them fight to the death. That should entertain me.

(Seriously, breastfeeding? My dumb American brain cannot understand.)

Sperm sometimes move toward an egg rather than the space bar.
Me- March 16, 2010 at 8:03 am
Open weight, meaning everyone was vying for one title.
