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

A Pleasant Escape to an Alternate Reality

I was watching this clip from "UFC 2009: Undisputed" and getting excited about how realistic the gameplay footage looks (except for Edith’s breasts, which, let’s be honest, don’t move anywhere near that much), and then Nate Diaz submitted B.J. Penn in the first round and the illusion was shattered.  

Okay, so it’s just a game.  And just like I’ll never steal any cars in real life (though I might ‘borrow’ it just to make a beer run), Nate Diaz will never take B.J. Penn’s back and choke him out with his feet crossed in front of him within two minutes.  It’s a fun little fiction, though.

If you look closely during the gameplay clip, you probably noticed two things: 1) Nick Diaz is not mean-mugging it up in his brother’s corner, and this is a real shame, and 2) there are no shortage of advertisements plastered all over the Octagon.  TapouT, MMA Warehouse, Harley-Davidson, Xyience, etc.  All the UFC’s closest friends get some play in “Undisputed,” and as the guys from MMA Payout have noted, this is worth a little something.  They cite an AdWeek report that estimates in-game advertising will be a $2 billion-a-year business by 2010.  

Since the UFC is making fighters sign over the rights to their video game images in perpetuity or else face the wrath, that’s money that will be going straight into the UFC coffers.  They won’t even have to offer the fighters a split of it when they make a new game in 2011 that brings in even more ad revenue and features Junie Browning going up in weight to knock Georges St. Pierre out cold in thirty seconds.

My name is Random One, not Sarcasm. And google returned 7,750,000,000 hits for "it". I don't see where you're coming from.

"Jardine would never KO Silva with a head kick. That is about as unrealistic as one could get. Go back to masturbating to your Dana White video blogs." it.

In response to:
There's a clip of Jardine knocking out Anderson Silva with a head kick. Also pretty realistic......

Jardine would never KO Silva with a head kick. That is about as unrealistic as one could get. Go back to masturbating to your Dana White video blogs.

oh, and if you find a clever way to "burn" me, ill be completely content with that because i will know that nobody in the real world will ever find out how badly i got "burned" on the internet. unless i tell them. which i may just so they will remind me day to day that i'm not special.

you guys really need to get lives, and i dont mean that in a "your on the computer more then i am" kind of way, i mean in the way that you REALLY care that much about what people think about you, no sorry not you, a name, a name you made up that no one here has any chance of attaching to one of the billions of people in the world. who gives a shit, no one knows who you are, nor cares. so im not really sure why you take so much pride in this name you made up. this is me and im pretty sure nobody has taken my name to try and make me look bad but if they did, what the fuck would that do. nothing.

im a fucking faggot asshole, while im typing this i have a huge cock in my ass. the only reason im not making this any longer is because someone just came on my back and i need to find paper towels before it gets dry and crusty.

please dont think less of me as a human because i wont be able to sleep at night.(while spooning with a man in a cowboy hat)

@ Random Hero

TUF Guy, CanadianProduce,

@MoTropolis: Only Mazzagatti is known for stopping fights LATE and not EARLY.
MoTropolis- March 23, 2009 at 2:25 pm
This game is alot more realistic than you people are giving it credit for. I got my hands on a demo version, started it up, chose my player, and then Steve Mazzagatti popped up on the screen and stopped the fight as my name was being announced.

This is just as stupid as the UFC games from the past. At least in PRIDE FC, submitting Noguiera would be infuckingpossible. You can probably make Eddie Sanchez tap our Mir with a fucking gulliotine.
Random Hero- March 23, 2009 at 1:57 pm
I think they could, the UFC game has a good amount of hype around it, and if the Legends of Wrestlemania game coming out puts half the numbers the Smackdown game does, it should help them get back on their feet

Hopefully if they do go under Ea will get their contract, their history in Sports games, especially fight night would be nice

@Random Hero: Will THQ even survive two more years? I'd be surprised if there was another UFC release under THQ.
Random Hero- March 23, 2009 at 1:43 pm
Better take down that video before Bj decides to press charges against your website,thq,the ufc, and to have nate suspended for life =P

Seriously though.. I thought this was going to be a yearly game, I have to wait for another version for 2 years, this one better be good, and have a ton of dlc

I'm really hoping a few of you guys are under the age of 18 and not under the IQ of 18. I like Cagepotato but most of the comments on here are here the same 2 idiots making dick and fart jokes all day.
Neo- March 23, 2009 at 12:49 pm
So...did BJ Penn cry like a little bitch so they would make him look more muscular in this game ... b/c I damn sure do not remember him ever being as "fit" as he is in that video!! (COUGHbullshit).
TUF Guy- March 23, 2009 at 12:47 pm
LOL this is too easy.

CanadianProduce, you have just joined a long list of degenarates who I officialy own. Talk to Aaron and Kadumel and they will explain to you the rules from now on. I would tell you to talk to mayhem420, but last time I checked I made him rant about TUF Guy soooo much he actually lost his house LOL I don't think his brother in law lets him use his computer anymore

John Cena- March 23, 2009 at 12:42 pm
Game looks as fake as your average MMA bout.
CanadianProduce- March 23, 2009 at 12:42 pm
TUF GUY you should thank me for not insulting you of this website. Everybody knows that I am the funniest memeber on here, if you wanna go insult for insult I am down. I ain't got shit else to do but to kick ass and chew cum, and I am all out of cum...and I can't really kick ass, so insult match it is.
danomite- March 23, 2009 at 12:41 pm
Hopefully, the final boss in this game will be Diamond Dave Kaplan, complete with iron chin. The only way to knock him out is to get him drunk first,but even then he will claim that, yeah his jaw may hurt a little, but he was never knocked out.
TUF Guy- March 23, 2009 at 12:40 pm
@ Thoughts

I don't have to explain myself to anyone. Talk to the fuckin Bens, they should be able to block and track IP's , key words : SHOULD BE ABLE

But they are too worried comming up w/ ways to make fun of peoples accents and trying to keep this sinking boat afloat.

If I wanted to spam like this COOL guy I would definetly be more creative than writing COOL and drawing penises.

Anyone who knows TUF Guy knows I ain't down w/ CanadianProduce, I mean gay shit

M@TT- March 23, 2009 at 12:38 pm
this sweet clip and I bet the Diaz bros are still whining about not getting any coverage for their skills in mma

Product placement on the this site will kill your page.

TUF GUY - it is obvious that you are this "cool" guy because only you could be that gay.
