Tag Team MMA Is Probably Not the Future of the Sport

Cage Potato forum member Sodak posted a link to this ridiculous nonsense recently, but we were too busy paying attention to normal things to notice until now.  For those of you who have ever said to yourself, ‘You know, I like MMA but I just wish there was a way to get more dudes involved at once,’ your prayers have been answered.  Tag team MMA provides all the enjoyment of watching a fight where closed-fist strikes to the head are illegal, while also adding all the confusion of a total clusterfuck.

I’m sure this sounded like a great idea to somebody, probably somebody who still isn’t completely convinced that pro wrestling is fake.  They must have had grand visions of a tag team MMA empire featuring epic bouts between the Honky Tonk Heartbreakers and the devious Oxford Boys, who always win with help from their meddling manager, Professor Lankenshire.  But when this match ends in a tie and we have all four fighters going at it, writhing around on the mat in a pile of sweaty, desperate bodies, that’s the point when we have to realize that this thing is giving way too much ammunition to the ‘MMA is gay foreplay‘ crowd.  The last thing we need is to encourage those idiots. 

Now if you’ll excuse us, we have some San Do to watch before the XARM championships come on.

this is pretty ridiculous in my opinion, we might as well put 12 guys in the octagon and say who ever doesnt get thrown out of the cage wins

This might still be interesting because in a street fight there are no rules, like 1 on 1 (anyone else been completely outnumbered here besides me?). What they did wrong here was have too many rules. They need to do like UFC1 and start out with no rules, then add them on later; adding whatever seems most applicable.

@Sabado Gigante No way - if its going to be a battle royale, doesn't it need like 20 guys? That would be a sight to see.

Sorry 'bout the Political reference. My "Voters Remorse" is showing thru.
BLOODY_KNUCKELS- January 18, 2010 at 6:01 am
I get really uncomfortable at the 7:10 mark.. It goes from just being gay, to turning into a complete gay orgy of grapplers trying to tea-bag eachother. What' My sport coming 2!!!!

Come on, you guys act surprised. Did you really think that with the way MMA is currently kicking pop culture in the pantsuit that some brainless dick mouth wouldn't try to exploit it? Look at how many shitbird "professional" wrestling promotions popped up after the resurgence in popularity in the late 90's.

It won't be long before we see valets in MMA and the resurrection of Captain Lou Albano.

Seriously though, I could only take @ 20 seconds of that shit, and now I can't honestly say that I've never watched "Gay Porn." Thanks for ruining my life C.P. Please quit putting this garbage on your site.

@ Dr Garbo,
LMFAO, seriously, I think a little pee came out.

I hope this is just the bad joke it appears to be.

Back to the pile!!

Well, that was kind of an interesting experiment to say the least. It should be noted that there were some limitations demonstrated in the video. Your mixed martial arts training should incorporate encounters with multiple assailants. Clearly, all the "fighters" from the clip need to learn how to engage in that environment if they continue to try and promote this concept.

LOL, this was done at the intermission of a great fight card, with four coaches of local gyms having a good time. 2 of them slammed a six pack before the match. you guys are way to serious.... LOL.

If I was an advanced scout for a superior alien race I would send the signal for the eradication to start over this shit
PhilDZnutts- January 17, 2010 at 7:09 pm
In my brain, the idea of tag team MMA seemed like it would be fun. Then I watched this.

They should have padding on their palms instead of their fists.

This is an MMA blog, dumbass. Politics is irrelevant to this discussion, as are you. Cheeto has excellent advice for you, and here's some more: stop posting under that name and riding my train to coolness. Actually, scratch that: stop posting altogether. Bitch.

That was almost as queer as UFC fan and 831 son's first anal experience.

ZST Tag team MMA match



Search that on youtube. I'm pretty sure one of those guys is masakazu imanari. That means tag team mma is legit.
UFC fan- January 17, 2010 at 2:26 pm
That was gayer than 831 son.
NateGetsIrate- January 17, 2010 at 1:36 pm
Well... at least we now know why that's a bad idea. Sometimes you have to test a theory out to see if it would work, kinda how America wanted to see what the Atom Bomb would do if they actually dropped it on a country a couple times. This was pretty much the same thing, in a way.

Off topic. I was looking at upcoming fight cards on wikipedia. I got to UFC 115 and here's something at the bottom of the page. If that's true, there HAS to be an interview or a story put together. It's too good to pass up.

"Marcus Vinicios was set to fight on The Ultimate Fighter 11, but injured himself masturbating and could not compete on the show. He has started campaigning to fight on the card by making multiple groups on a few social networking sites."

THAT was an abortion. If you watched that and didn't find it violently offensive, you need to die. Everyone involved in creating that shit needs to die. And just for good measure, kill their children... and all the people they have ever known... and nuke whatever city held the event... then pave over it... then nuke it again every year...

First: I don't understand how anyone over the age of 10 can watch pro wrestling after seeing MMA.

Second: I don't understand why so many so-called MMA fans want MMA to be as much like pro wrestling as possible. Please stop covering my sport with your abortions.

I'm taking Minowaman in that battle royal.
