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

‘Proving Ground’ Finalist of the Day: Jacob Austin, His Gym, and His Dog

After being selected as one of the four finalists for our Proving Ground competition with Shark Fights, featherweight prospect Jacob Austin decided to film a video shouting out the Potato Nation and giving us a glimpse into his life. So what do we learn about Jacob? Well…

- He comes from a wrestling background and has been competing in MMA professionally since 2008.

- You know his gym is legit because it has an ice bath.

- Tim Kennedy beats him up on a regular basis.

- His dog Lucy seems way healthier than my dog.

Visit Jacob’s Proving Ground page to watch some of his past fights, and click his Facebook “Like” button if you dig what you see.

I know all about IYAC1YAS, and the Texas Fire Academy can kiss my ass.
I hope y'all practice first-aid on dogs before you graduate.
One day soon Jacob's pooch may just get run over - and it will need some of your CPR for any chance at making to the local veterinarian.

You don't know about them Texas boys!!
Man, they don't know what that scar about,
they don't know what that war about.
We be holdin plex whenever haters hate.
Down here in this Lonestar state
Out of towner's be comin around
Runnin they mouth be talkin down
But you don't know nuttin 'bout my town
Either hold it down or move around.

Your right, I was out of line. I hope that in the future we see the name Jacob Austin progress rapidly. The fight is full of scoundrels looking to make a buck, and would want your boy to put some of that in his pocket for his dedication.
As for the dog, it demonstrates he is the bigger man, as even I fall victim to the cheap shot when it presents itself.

checked out austin's website. He's a fireman/paramedic, he risks his life daily for other people, that's pretty noble and probably does make him a nice guy. What's up with mentioning killing the dog? That's just wrong. Maybe you should re watch his highlights and see how nice he is to his opponents face. All of these gentleman are talented fighters in their own right and should be commended, not picked on. It makes you look as ignorant as your blatant misuse of the term gullible.

You think he's nice? He ate that dog after his run, just like he eats any man in the ring after tenderizing them with his elbows!
XENOPHON- August 17, 2011 at 5:38 pm
Geez, these guys must be talking about the little dog in the video. I sure hope he doesn't get hit by a car.
Maybe I was wrong.
Maybe Jacob Austin ought to change his name to Steve Austin.
That's the only way he's ever going to become the $6 Million Dollar Man.
The nation is still at war. Since he thinks it cool to salute, maybe this kid should see if he could cut it in the military.
What branch could one recommend?

I'd like to see you guys talking smack as he wipes your blood off his elbows.
ECVaupelspinningbackfist- August 17, 2011 at 2:43 pm
when he man handles you and drops elbows from the top like a beast you won't be saying "too nice", more like "tap tap"
lbryan- August 17, 2011 at 2:20 pm
The biggest mistake you'll ever make is to mistake his kindness for weakness.
batallionstallion- August 17, 2011 at 1:49 pm
I'm sure you won't be saying that when you're looking up at him cross-eyed with your back on the matt because he knocked you out and made you look like a chump in your own house. Batallion One!
XENOPHON- August 17, 2011 at 1:04 pm
Wholly Shit, way too nice if not gullible.
I vote we all chip in and fly the entire team from Texas to Los Angeles. Let Eddie Bravo give these rednecks a course correction on how avoid being so gullible.

And will someone local run that sweet little dog over.
