21 Humans Who Make Being Human Look Really, Really Hard

T-Shirt Design Contest: Win a FLO TV Personal Television and UFC 115 on Pay-Per-View!

From Clay Guida‘s "Eddie the Head" tribute, to Jens Pulver as Little Mac, to Tri-Coasta’s now-ubiquitous Korean Zombie design, we’re suckers for a good custom fighter t-shirt. And since our recent MMA event poster design contest was a smashing success, we figured we should let our artistically gifted readers battle it out again in a brand-new contest: Can you design America’s Next Top Fighter T-Shirt?

Details of the contest are after the jump, but we thought it would be important to let you know what you stand to win. Short answer: Everything. You stand to win everything. Longer answer: A personal television from FLO TV, with access to the pay-per-view broadcast of UFC 115. In case you’re unaware of this lovely little device, here’s a quick rundown: The FLO TV Personal Television is a mobile handheld viewer that allows you to watch TV wherever you go, on its subscription-based network of channels. (12 months of their standard service comes included with every FLO TV.) Beginning with UFC 113, FLO TV is now a distributor of UFC PPV events, and they want one lucky member of the Potato Nation to watch Liddell vs. Franklin on his/her very own mobile television. Total street value of this prize package: About $425. Kenny Florian can vouch for this product personally, but if you need more info, go here and here. Information on FLO TV coverage areas can be found at flotv.com

You want it. Here’s how to get it.


Create a custom t-shirt design for the fighter of your choice. It can be slick and professional-looking, incorporating the fighter’s actual sponsors and logos. It can be a parody of an existing fighter t-shirt. It can be as badass as Fedor choking out a dragon. The only guidelines are to be creative and put some effort into it. Can you come up with a design that a fighter would actually be proud to wear? Or, failing that, can you come up with a design that’s so ridiculous that we would want to wear it?

As before, you’ll be submitting your image files to feedback@cagepotato.com. We can’t stress that enough. Try to keep ‘em under 1 MB in size. We recommend putting your design(s) in a t-shirt outline/template, and you can find some here. Multiple submissions are encouraged. Designs must be submitted by Sunday, May 30th, at midnight ET. Finalist voting will begin the next day. The top vote-getter will score the grand prize from FLO TV, and three runners-up will win consolation prizes to be named later. If you have any questions about the rules of this contest, please fire away in the comments section. Good luck, and thanks so much to FLO TV for making this possible!

@ Fitbullyfranklin

Soon buddy, soon. In other news I was going to propose the idea that we nominate you as our official IFC foreign correspondent from "Down Under! (tm)". Can you get us some inside info on the kangaroo's training camp? I heard he was working his boxing with Ricardo Mayorga... unless Don King found out...

Think about it, you want to watch fights, the little lady wants to watch her show. Toss her the little TV and everyone is happy

@Miss Anthropee, where can I get a ball jersey? I definitely need the Shamwow in mine, cause I shit my pants fairly frequently

My clothing company... www.butchershopfightgear.com is pretty excited to be entering this contest
SofaKingNyce- May 17, 2010 at 5:22 pm

@ ReXual Harassment

Well, go get another job you lazy asshole! And I don't want to hear any of that bs "I need personal time to spend with my family" crap either.
KimboSlice- May 17, 2010 at 3:21 pm
I'm gonna win this thing fer sure... Or at least be put up as the biggest loser of this just so everyone can see how hideous it is...

And who wants to place bets on Chuck showing up to UFC 115 as Chuck "The Snowman" Liddell. I swear he has the biggest gut in MMA, besides Roy Nelson of course..

Wait until you hear about the new invention I'm in the process of patenting: The Ball Jersey. It will come in a wide variety of colors and sizes and themes applicable to many different sports and brands that go with them. It will have a furry/ soft lining and come in a wide variety of materials for the exterior cladding. A drawstring will hold it securely fastened about the balls, which will be cuddled in a luxuriously warm and inviting environment. Hand knitted just like The Glorious Sweater of Absolute Victory! Sham-wow for those who require absorbent undergarments! Perforated Nylon for the athletically inclined! Hemp cloth and goat leather for the eco-conscious! Personalized for the individual, or themed for the whole team! Coming soon to a sports product retailer near you!

I don't know about the design but any old, worn out t-shirt should represent this fight pretty well.
Jim- May 17, 2010 at 1:58 pm
Not complaining just think it's very funny how shit this product is.
& I get TV on my android phone for free also. Not that I'd want to. wtf would anyone want scheduled programming over VOD.
Jim- May 17, 2010 at 1:52 pm
lol, hardly Revolutionary. I grew up in the 90's & there were a several hand-held TVs going around. At one point, people almost cared for a second. This thing has a better screen & comes with a $10 monthly subscription. Awesome!

PoonTangClan>> Yes! i now have TWO jobs! i just want to say i appreciate you being there to motivate and encourage me! Thanks, PoonTang!
ReX13- May 17, 2010 at 1:45 pm
Jim>> It's not the hardware they're touting, it's the service. You can get it on your phone too.

Jesus christ, you guys come over to people's houses for dinner and complain about the food too?

@ GWEE-o-TEEN

How dare you call Eastern Siberia a third world country?
WuTangClan- May 17, 2010 at 1:42 pm
Have you found a job yet Rex?

I draw and paint but I look at the computer as an enigmatic and mysterious entity, hewn from the sacred plastic of the sphere of Jupiter. I believe it is animated by the souls of dead ancestors.

If this was 1990, that thing would be fucking revolutionary. However, if it were '95, it'd be an awesome prototype.
Jim- May 17, 2010 at 1:33 pm
Seriously, if this was 1990, that would be an awesome prototype.
Jim- May 17, 2010 at 1:30 pm
Wow, resolution is almost as good as my phone. And it's Multitouch, just like my phone! And it plays video just like my phone
Technology is amazing!
GUI-uh-TEEN- May 17, 2010 at 1:30 pm
@Rex13

It wouldn't be any use to him... They don't have wireless TV in 3rd world countries.
ReX13- May 17, 2010 at 1:19 pm
Mike is officially barred from winning, right? 'Cause he's a flappy-headed, beady-eyed Canadian?
rM- May 17, 2010 at 1:16 pm
Is there a preferred pixel x pixel size??
FreddyFangers- May 17, 2010 at 1:16 pm
