While cruising DeviantArt.com this afternoon, we came across a bunch of freaky UFC/MMA-related fan art that makes Hassy’s obsession with Mark Hunt look downright normal. Check out 20 of the most disturbing examples, which continue after the jump, and click all the images for full-size versions.

Remember how we mentioned yesterday that BJJ champion Gabrielle Garcia made a guest-appearance on TUF Brazil 3, sometime before her bust for the testosterone-boosting drug Clomiphene? Well, this is what that moment looked like.
The combination of Gabi’s Tom Hardy-esque physique combined with that hilarious-in-retrospect caption makes this my favorite MMA-related screen-cap of the year, hands down. A new Potato Awards category will have to be created just for this image. I mean got damn, that lady big.
If you think you have a better MMA screen-cap from 2014, please shoot us a link in the comments section.
Update: Crooklyn passes along another Wandy/Gabi screen-cap from TUF Brazil 3, with an even greater caption…Read More DIGG THIS

CagePotato isn’t just an outdated MMA blog featuring incredibly biased articles and a non-functional comment section. The truth is, CP is an online media empire, which includes our daily complaints and arguments on Twitter, MMA GIFs and videos on our Tumblr page, and the amazing/ridiculous photographs and memes we post on Facebook.
We spent all morning combing our Facebook photo gallery and hand-picked 39 of the most memorable images that we posted in 2013, which we’ve laid out below along with their original descriptions. Enjoy, and if you’re not following us yet, get with the damn program.Read More DIGG THIS

Thanks to everybody who entered this week’s Fear the Fighter caption contest! Before we reveal who won the Combat Line t-shirt of his/her choice, let’s pay respect to some honorable mentions that came in via Monday’s post and the Facebook thread…
Kyle Trombley: Pettis is preparing for his next opponent, Ali G.
Justin Smith: “Tell Mustard he’s next.”
Ryan O’Leary: Pettis receives ban after pissing hot for pink champagne.
Stephen Faragher: Hepatitis A B and C in no particular order.
Mike Boys: Minimalist Santa Claus, with fellow fun-boys the tin-man and some muthafucka who manged to pop a collar on a collarless shirt.
Patrick McCready: ”Hey, are either of you worried we might get a little TOO MUCH pussy tonight?”
And the winner is…Read More DIGG THIS

Earlier today, we came across this wonderful Michael Bisping photoshop by UG’er JCSUPERMAN, which The Count liked so much that he’s currently using it as his twitter avatar. Indeed, it’s a breathtaking image — and it just begs for the Joseph Ducreux treatment. So, the CagePotato staff decided to turn Bisping’s portrait into the latest MMA meme. Check out more of Bisping’s old-timey trash-talk after the jump, and if you want to take a crack at making your own, grab the original image and post your work on our Facebook page.Read More DIGG THIS

For a man who made his reputation by striking fear into the hearts of his opponents, few people on Earth can express pure joy as well as Wanderlei Silva. Whether it’s the result of a well-earned victory, time spent with his loving family, a room full of bikini models, or a simple clove of garlic, Silva has found plenty of reasons to smile during his enviable life and career. So, in honor of his fight against Brian Stann tomorrow in the main event of UFC on FUEL 8, we decided to round up 21 photos of the Axe Murderer just being a happy-go-lucky son-of-a-gun. All of his violent curb-stompings are nice and all, but this is the way we’d really like to remember him.Read More DIGG THIS

We shared this on our Facebook page on Thursday, but it’s worth a re-post for those of you who weren’t glued to your computers and mobile devices during the holiday. The photo above shows Chael Sonnen predictably going for a leg while Jon Jones — a menacing figure even without a sharp object — puts on his best bad-guy face and straight up dwarfs the gangster from West Linn. We’d like to congratulate the New Jersey State Athletic Control Board for their bravery in sanctioning this one.
In the pro wrestling world, this sort of thing is called “breaking kayfabe,” a moment where the fictional storylines and personas are temporarily discarded, revealing that the whole thing is fake. Yeah, I know Jones has been warming up to Sonnen, who is “pretty decent and pretty classy” all of a sudden. But damn, it sure didn’t take long to go from calling each other cowards, cheaters, mental midgets, and selfish, entitled brats, to “bro, are you bringing the cranberries or do I have to run out to Whole Foods again?”
So how do these two really feel about each other — and how much of their interaction on the next season of TUF will be staged for our amusement?Read More DIGG THIS

Halloween is just eight days away, and you and your girlfriend are probably going to do the plug-and-socket thing again. Ugh, you guys — so lame. Take some inspiration from these MMA fighters who added some creepiness and humor to their entrances, and tell us about your own Halloween costume plans in the comments section.Read More DIGG THIS

(Oh! So topical!)
From Rousimar Failhares to Scumbag Dana, we at CagePotato love a good MMA-themed image meme. And the jokers on the UG have been working on a great one this week: “Good Guy Junior Dos Santos,” a kind-hearted and honest heavyweight who is always there to help, and never gets nasty taint-sweat on your training tires. We’ve compiled a bunch of our favorites from that Underground thread, which continue after the jump. Enjoy!Read More DIGG THIS
