Why do CP Polls always refuse to work. I have that rare fringe browser called Firefox and these polls always direct me to some strange CP page or don't do anything. I never see results after voting...

These are all pretty cool but man I wish i knew how to be pro at Photo Shop.

Winning Idea :

Anderson Silva Vs Genki Sudo:

Battle at the Disco

I noticed while viewing that I liked the first one a lot, which probably has to do with it being first. Similarly, the last one might hang with people longer when they go to vote. Also, all the posters I'd already seen before didn't seem as interesting or compelling as the new ones. Since we've previewed some already, I think there impact will be diminished for the casual voter.

Therefore to everyone who was featured previously or in the middle of this huge pack, I am sorry, but I'm voting for the last one because I can't appreciate real design skills and it's funny.

The first one is mega epic! but I really like the PauloThiagoSilva Dream one, just like a real Japanese poster

tikibot FTW
newotnek- April 14, 2010 at 6:37 pm
some of you guys really have some talent
justscrappin- April 14, 2010 at 5:04 pm
They are all really good contributions..but I'm an old school Mortal Kombat I like Olieng's ...and all I can hope for in that fight is for one of the two guys to get a chance to "FINISH HIM!"
thekid- April 14, 2010 at 4:43 pm
These are all absolutely ridiculous, congrats to all of you who made it to the final I'm seriously in awe, Cagepotato should send these to the UFC and get those scrubs who make the UFC's posters normally outta town

Steve Dub's "Grumpy Old Men" - Comedic Genius Award

Vincent D's Strikeforce Nashville - Cooler than the Other Side of the Pillow Award

Strung56 Dragon-Shogun II - That ish is sick. Grand Prize sick.

I can't pry myself away from my strict regime of squat thrusts, stevia extract supplements, and reverse grip masturbation (my ultimate goal is to have a penis that is shaped precisely like a BMX bicycle grip, you know, for the ladies...) to invest the time to manifest such magnificent monuments of ubiquitous corporate branding. My props to Steve W., who apparently photographed his poster from the window of his time machine.

I want to vote for Ansari It wont let me not gonna spend the time trying over and over , maybe CP can vote for me but thats who I tryed to vote for. they are all good but thats the 1 I liked
lobsterarmcrank- April 14, 2010 at 3:26 pm
Very good!
robthom- April 14, 2010 at 3:26 pm
Snakefinger's and Nicole.B's go together IMO.
cecils_pupils- April 14, 2010 at 3:19 pm
Great entries! My top five faves (in order):

Eric M.
Nicole B.
Strung 56

Award for Hilariousness: tikibot
Lysol- April 14, 2010 at 3:13 pm
Tikibot is the best, FTW.

Other favorites:
Olieng P
Nicole B
Vincent D's Strikeforce Nashville one
Nicolo T

They're in no particular order, except obviously Tikibot is getting my vote.
iDestroy- April 14, 2010 at 3:03 pm
Awesome job guys. I think everybody should get something.
sixthsense- April 14, 2010 at 2:41 pm
wow the new ones that made it are really nice. Good job everyone.
Really tough competition.
ihateemo- April 14, 2010 at 2:38 pm
Lots of talent on display for sure, but I can't help but wish for some more funny. Either way, everyone did a great job.

The Liddel/Couture one was great though. The tagline made me laugh so loud my co-workers thought I'd brought a gun to work again.

I'd love to see more contests like this. Even if it's just a weekly or monthly thing for kicks.
woo- April 14, 2010 at 2:36 pm
I like Nicole B.'s, good concept and execution, not just flash.
Steffmeister- April 14, 2010 at 2:35 pm
tikibot +1
side.check.kick- April 14, 2010 at 2:29 pm
Nipmoua made the best one by a long shot. Plus, why the fuck did so many machida vs rua posters make it to the finals? And how tikibot was even considered I just don't know.
HeadsWillRoll- April 14, 2010 at 2:28 pm
Steve W. and PauloThiagoSilva....awesome. But I'm using my vote for Snakefinger. As others have said, the poster's simplicity is key. The (almost entirely) symmetrical design and cleanliness of it instills a calmness not seen in many MMA posters, yet that is at odds with the tension created by the looming bit of ordnance that lets me know stuff's gonna blow up and shit.
