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

Photo of the Day: Frankie Edgar Takes Being Pranked By Teammates Like a Champ

Frankie Edgar is one of the most easygoing, respectful and likeable fighters in the UFC, so it’s no wonder that he was able to laugh off a prank that was pulled on him by his teammates and a media outlet earlier this week.

According to “The Answer’s” Brazilian jiu-jitsu coach Ricardo Almeida, Yahoo! Sports orchestrated the stunt in which a phony repo man attempted to tow away the UFC lightweight champ’s BMW from the parking lot of Almeida’s school in South Jersey.

Edgar was a good sport about it, telling teammate and the club’s resident TUF jackass Akira Corassani that there were no hard feelings over the practical joke.

I have a feeling Frankie might be showing his teammates some “love” the next time they spar.

I understand you see the average trucker with his "big fat uncoordinated ass."
But now imagine Scott Ferrozzo blasted outta his mind on an 8-ball of crystal meth with a tire iron in one hand a foot-long pastrami in the other.
Are you really gonna put your money on little Frankie Edgar.

Brock in a speedo? Ugghhh... brutha, I was trynna eat my lunch here!
I'm sure all those roids have turned him into a Ken doll.

@The12ozCurls - I'd put big money on the repo guy anyday. He fights nightly with that fucking crowbar, and one could likely see the UFC 1 with multiple fights in one night.
Edgar on the other hand, fights at best twice a year.

You know I'm just messing with you, Mofo. You're right though, few things in this life are more horrifying than Frank Mir in tights, and I once saw Brock Lesnar in a speedo. Camouflage of course.......WHAT?! IT WAS SPRING BREAK!!

As for professions, I'll change my comment to:
... which your average dude probly hasn’t.

Eh, I'm just ripping on Almeida here for acting like Frankie is so scary. It's not like he's a big fat woman doing the hokey pokey in black tights like Frank Mir :)
If you want a pissing contest, please, let's just get back to discussing your "death watch" articles.

@The12ozCurls. I'm with thomasrussell on this one. To think a trucker's big fat uncoordinated ass is gonna land with a crowbar on a guy who spends all day blocking and slipping shins and fists is just silly. I'm always shocked at how underestimated pro fighters are. No one is ever stupid enough to think they could hang with Tiger at golf or Lebron in basketball, but tons of dudes think they could somehow find an advantage in a physical confrontation with a fighter. It's no less silly a notion I can assure: there's not a guy in the UFC from 135 and up who wouldn't crush the average man. As per the usual course of this conversation you've now brought up firearms and I understand, but I'm just here to it's totally OK. Those guys can kick my ass too and everybody's on here; even those of us who train all the time. No big deal.

Man Mofo, you really need to lighten up. And since you're all about the facts, do you mind telling me where I can find a statistical breakdown of average UFC fans based on occupation? You don't strike me as the kind of person who would make a generalization like that without having the data to back it up is all I'm saying. Thanks.

No-one would be afraid of 155 lb frankie edgar unless they'd seen his fights, which your average tow truck dude probly hasn't.
So, no, I doubt anyone was crapping their pants. Next.

Im not much more than a mile or 2 from Almeida's school, funny to see town in the pics.
The12ozCurls- January 19, 2012 at 11:05 am
How did you guess? LOL.
And seriously, you think that truck drivers only have a tire iron. This aint 1993 and the Reginal Denny thing changed a lot of habits within the profession. Same amount of meth and a lot more fire arms. LOL.

@tyr: here you go!
thomasrussell- January 19, 2012 at 10:48 am
@The12ozCurls- dude LOL that was funny. You or someone close to you must be a truck driver because you are hypersensitive about the profession. Reality is, a fat guy with a tire iron wouldn't get close to an MMA fighter. be easy to avoid the first swing then it's all over.
Tyr- January 19, 2012 at 10:40 am
I get angry just by reading the name Akira Corassani, please UFC give him a catch weight fight with Overeem.
shayes99- January 19, 2012 at 10:26 am
If we are talking about the car hooked to the wrecker it looks like a M5 to me.

"Fake repo guy must have gotten pretty close to crapping his pants"

Hey Almeida, we all know that elite MMA guys are great athletes capable of kicking the average joe's ass but you better not mess with repo guys or tow truck drivers because a tire iron to the head will put anybody on dream street. I seriously doubt that your average tow truck dude would have been worried. I mean, they drive a god damn tow truck for a living, do you think they actually give 2 shits if they crush your skull with a breaker bar.
