As has been clear to fans of the UFC for some time now, the organization is holding more and more events every year. The problem with this over-saturation is that it can lead to some cards that lack the firepower of others. The best solution for such events is to drink your way through them, and that is where CagePotato has you covered. After considerable research, taste testing, and taking into account various factors such as nicknames, fighting styles, and personality traits, here are some drinks to enjoy based on the UFC fighters you support…

Lyoto Machida
Dragon Piss

1 ounce Cinnamon Schnapps
3/4 ounce Butterscotch Schnapps
4 ounces Mountain Dew

Mix all ingredients and drink as a LARGE shot. Act like it was no big deal.

Soa Palelei
Incredible Hulk
2 ounces Hypnotiq
2 ounces Cognac

Pour in a glass over ice, mix and watch the magical transformation. Down a few of these, and you’ll be kissing whoever’s closest to you.


Selling Booze and Signing Boobs, Georges St-Pierre Is Enjoying His Retirement Responsibly


By Brian J. D’Souza

Despite taking a break from the UFC Octagon, former welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre has been busier than ever throughout 2014. In recent weeks, he’s spoken out about lax drug testing protocols within the sport, cornered his friend Francis Carmont in Brazil, been the subject of a new documentary, and this Tuesday in Toronto, GSP was on hand at The Fifth pub to promote his partnership with rum maker Bacardi.

“Started drinking Bacardi even before I was associated with them,” quipped the French-Canadian superstar to a crowded room of VIP guests and media members.

The event was representative of the new era in St-Pierre’s life: Instead of being at the beck and call of a promoter, GSP is proud of the fact that he can leave his cell phone unattended for a week. Defending his UFC title was a Sisyphean task; St-Pierre claims his mental health deteriorated under the numerous demands being a professional fighter placed him under.

“I’m very happy where I am right now,” said St-Pierre, speaking to Sportsnet’s Joe Ferraro.
