Photo Gallery: 18 Amazing Fighter Fist-Poses


(Looks like somebody took a wrong turn on the way to the Cirque du Soleil show. Photo courtesy of CombatLifestyle.)

Don’t ask us to explain it, but whenever fighters and fans get together for a group photo, at least one person has to raise their fist like a tough guy. But instead of dropping the ban-hammer on this bizarre phenomenon, we decided to compile the most ridiculous, hilarious, and straight-up awesome MMA fighter fist-pose photos that we could find. If we left out any of your favorites, please shoot us some links in the comments section…


("Hey, hey, one at a time, I’m not that kind of boy.")


(Seriously, Guy-on-the-Right. What the hell have you been eating?)



(There was definitely something different about Tim after he got out of prison.)


(The dude in the white shirt has clearly never been to an Italian wedding.)


(You gotta give Amir credit for not firing the straight-right at that thing.)


(Saddest fighter fist-pose ever. I don’t even think that stock-boy wants to be there.)


(Asian Baby doesn’t quite have the fist-pose thing down yet, but he’s a pro when it comes to pooping himself.)


(Just then, Shane realized that not only had he forgotten to turn off his oven, he had also forgotten to lock the pit in his basement where he keeps all the kidnapped prostitutes.)


(Tim Duncan and Urijah Faber do their Kareem vs. Bruce impression.)


(Well, it was amazing to us.)


(On Fridays, Cris and Evangelista have their weekly "date night," where they go out into the slums and stomp homeless people to death.)


(The late Evan Tanner poses with some Mexican kid.)


("These days everyone’s phone has a camera, and everyone wants a picture of them holding their fist up standing next to Randy Couture on their facebook page. That is easily one of the weirdest and goofiest things about MMA fans; the fist-up pose with the fighter. I can’t think of another sport that has a pose that the fans take when they get pictures with the athletes where they mimic the activity they enjoy watching. It’s not just a few guys striking this dopey pose, either. It’s the majority. I can completely understand if you’re a fighter yourself, and you want an image of camaraderie with one of your sporting idols, but if you’re an overweight short order cook who’s never even taken a tae bo class, do the world a favor and keep your fucking fist un-balled when you’re standing next to Anderson Silva.")


("Ay dog, you ever get the feeling that your picture is being used for a shitty caption contest?")


(Knocks ‘em up and knocks ‘em out.)


(Nick Diaz: Gangster from birth.)


(Got you again, homey! Boo-yah!)

Yeah, I knew that was Wilmer. Too subtle, I guess...

Not for everyone. +1

Wilmer Valderra is mexican?

Also, babs that is a pretty damn good idea. If I get a photo taken with an mma star (unlikely) I will be sure to comply with your request and post a link.

Hey fellas, I think calling him some mexican kid was a joke on the fact that he is some famous mexican kid named Wilmer Valderra who is a notorious mma junkie. Although I could be wrong, maybe the Bens didn't know who he was either.

@Babs OMG, that's brilliant. I totally want to get my picture taken with a fighter now just so I can pull out the paper and pwn everyone.

@ Ben

Black shirt from GAP Kids does not go well with a brown belt. That's something CB Dollaway would do....I'm just saying
RwilsonR- March 8, 2010 at 7:15 pm
Happy now, Babs?
RwilsonR- March 8, 2010 at 7:10 pm
I think the real lesson here is that if you are ever in a ro-sham-bo match with a fighter, you should always choose paper. If those pictures above are any indication, you will get smoked every time if you go for scissors.

^^^^ confirmed. Its Fez.
molky brothers- March 8, 2010 at 6:58 pm
The "mexican kid" looks like Wilmer Valderrama to me.
k-onda- March 8, 2010 at 6:25 pm
Look, I think it's weird that everyone has to make the fist pose when they're with a fighter, but I'm still more confused by asians who always give the peace sign, head scratcher.
NateGetsIrate- March 8, 2010 at 5:21 pm
Thanks Ben's! Very funny!!
G Funk- March 8, 2010 at 4:42 pm
It really seems that Diaz grew up in "the tough streets of Stockton" in that picture huh?
robthom- March 8, 2010 at 4:24 pm
I think they're all fez from that stupid tv show. And all white dudes are ashton kutcher as far as I can tell.
Sweaty Jesus- March 8, 2010 at 4:22 pm
I think the Mexican kid with Evan Tanner is Fez from That 70's Show. Watcha think?
robthom- March 8, 2010 at 4:21 pm
The only reason jackson didn't bank on that bitch was because of the camera.
Babs- March 8, 2010 at 4:18 pm
I'm waiting for someone to be original and pun the cliche fist thing with a little rock papers scissors.
Superstar Khan- March 8, 2010 at 4:12 pm
GODBLESS the man that took the gsp pic.
cecils_pupils- March 8, 2010 at 4:05 pm
Guy on the right seriously must be some mutant from another planet... just look closely at how his head sits atop that giraffe-like neck. Clearly an alien... or possibly some giraffe/human inbreeding going on there.

That photo caption on the Carwin picture has me crying in laughter!! Classic!

BTW that Verne Troyer gets around, first with Amir and then again with Tim Duncan!
KillSwitch_E- March 8, 2010 at 3:32 pm
LOL at the Cyborg caption

At last Dana White can rest. After all the bickering back and forth Rampage came clean that he hadn't retired from the UFC to make an A-team movie (which would never catch on) but that he actually landed a major role in the Golden Girls movie as Stanley Zbornak (Dorothy's baby-father for those of you unacquainted with the show).

Guy-on-the-Right is Metro-Carwin.
