Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Send Us Your ‘Free CagePotato’ Pics From the Weekend, Win An Amazing Strip of Cloth

(UFC middleweight Jason MacDonald and a Potato Nation All-Star. Props: Brian J. D’Souza)

Thanks again to all the beautiful people who swung through Shoeless Joe’s in Toronto on Thursday night for our UFC 129 ‘Banned’ Meetup. We had an amazing time, and it was cool to put some faces to screennames. (If you think we should do it again in Houston, say ‘aye’.) We have one request, though. We saw a lot of you snapping photos all night of you and your friends rocking the Free CagePotato t-shirts. Well, we want those photos. Me and Mike would have taken some pictures ourselves, but we were too busy shaking hands and kissing babies.

So, if you have any photos of yourself or your crew rocking our shirts at the pre-party, or at the Fan Expo, or at UFC 129, please post them on our Facebook wall or e-mail them to We’ll post our favorites later in the week, and the best one will receive a souvenir GSP headband personally signed by Arianny Celeste and Brittney Palmer. (You can gaze upon its glory right here.) Thanks for the help guys.

After the jump: A video highlight-reel from the party, edited by our pal Brian J. D’Souza, which proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that nobody should try to interview Ben Goldstein while he’s been drinking. Seriously.

I lost a lot of respect for cagepotato when in one of your podcasts you had an idea about how you should try and see who else you could get mad at you. I think the attitude of a journalist should be: "Let's do our job in spite of getting people getting mad", not : "Let's see who else we can get to be mad at us". Last podcast I ever listened to. And then came the fake/dumb stories that nearly got your website erased from my daily routine. Other than that this is an entertaining site, although I no longer care whether you guys get credentialed or not.

I think somebody was going for the "drunkest interviewer of the year" award.

BG: interview tip, if someone asks you if you have any last comments, don't say no and then go on talking for 5 minutes.

Brendy with the big "ironic" nerd glasses was pretty goddamn cute... unfortunately she only appeared back there once or twice.

Absolutely you should do an event in Houston. I'll help set up if need be, lets do this.

"That's been my interaction with you."
Looks like she was about to remove the mic from her face. Good stuff.

@ Mike Russell: She's upset with us, but she can't help but love me personally.

hey Ben I still ain't got my damn shirt!
dim mak- May 2, 2011 at 1:30 pm
apparently the next time i go out, i should bring a camera crew and a microphone, and just start interviewing the hottest chicks at the bar. if it worked for that dude, should work for anyone. btw--can i have veronica's phone number?

Ben proves, once and for all, that Mexi-Jews do in fact exist in the wild. Also what I'd imagine a Badr Hari-Werdum lovechild would look like. Same shit, basically.
Mike Russell- May 2, 2011 at 1:15 pm
LOL@"Love Arianny" on the headband. I take it you got it signed BEFORE you told Arianny who you were, BG?

they showed the ring so the UFC will ban the video for copy right infringement.
agentsmith- May 2, 2011 at 1:07 pm
@LaWeapon: Nah, that's Cesar Gracie.
GILL-uh-TEEN- May 2, 2011 at 1:03 pm
@Stak40 You are luckier than you think
Stak40- May 2, 2011 at 1:00 pm
cant see the vid.

Guerilla reporting from events could give CP a real man of the people type of feel if the free CagePotato movement fails.
LOKI- May 2, 2011 at 12:45 pm
Was that Emo Philips?
LaWeapon- May 2, 2011 at 12:43 pm
Is that Scott Coker with Jason MacDonald?
GILL-uh-TEEN- May 2, 2011 at 12:42 pm
Yes for Houston. I live here, and if history is any example, we will find some way to screw up an MMA event.
