11 Famous Actors and Their Embarrassing Early Film Roles

Quote of the Day: GSP vs. Silva?

GSP

Georges St. Pierre on moving up to middleweight to fight Anderson Silva:

“I’ve been thinking about it. It’s going to depend on the scenario. I have a lot of training partners at 185 and my weight class is 170…if one day, I have the opportunity, the way is clear, and I did everything I had to do in my division, of course I will (fight Silva).”

Rush vs. Spider would be a fantastic fight, but by the time GSP cleans out the welterweight division, Silva will already be at 205 making Rampage and Wanderlei his bitches.

Quote of the Day Runner-UpMatt Serra to the people of Montreal:

“So boo me. Boo me you drunks!”

Oh come on, Matt, have some class. Is that what Rocky said to the Russians?

Well, some of you sons-of-bitches are going to be pissed after this one. With the last signed copy of Iceman: My Fighting Life up for grabs, over 150 captions were submitted, and you guys were throwing straight fire. Unfortunately, less prizes + more entries = disappointment. Will you agree with our choice? Probably not. But with so many awesome captions, we had to pick the one that gave us the most unexpected laugh. Check out the honorable mentions below, and the winner after the jump. Special bro-grabs to Dutton Books for making this whole thing possible!

‘Iceman’ Caption Contest: Final Conflict Absolute

So far, we’ve given away nine autographed copies of Chuck Liddell’s Iceman: My Fighting Life, and we’re going to put this thing to bed with one last caption contest. And here’s a curveball — Chuck’s not even in the pic this time. But I just came across this breathtaking photo of Josh Koscheck and GSP dressed to the nines and walking their dog, and the CagePotato reader who can provide the best caption in the comments section gets the last book. There will be no multiple winners this time, so bring your A-game, and feel free to enter more than once. The winner will be announced Friday, as is the custom.

UFC 83 Card Announced; Tickets Moving Like Les Pâtisseries Chaude

Pout
(Poutine: French for “Devil’s Diarrhea.”)

In a press conference held yesterday at the Bell Centre in Montreal, Dana White confirmed that Patrick “The Predator” Cote will be joining the card of UFC 83 — currently titled “Serra vs. St. Pierre 2″ — against an opponent to be named later. With Cote’s addition, the official UFC 83 lineup looks like this:

MAIN CARD
Matt Serra vs. Georges St. Pierre (welterweight championship match)
Travis Lutter vs. Rich Franklin (middleweights)
Charles McCarthy vs. Michael Bisping (middleweights)
Nate Quarry vs. Kalib Starnes (middleweights)
Mark Bocek vs. Mac Danzig (lightweights)

PRELIMINARY CARD
Ed Herman vs. Demian Maia (middleweights)
Joe Doerksen vs. Jason MacDonald (middleweights)
Rich Clementi vs. Sam Stout (lightweights)
Kuniyoshi Hironaka vs. Jonathan Goulet (welterweights)
Patrick Cote vs. TBA (middleweights)

Out of the 19 (so far) scheduled fighters, eight are Canadian — St. Pierre, Starnes, Bocek, Doerksen, MacDonald, Stout, Goulet, and Cote. And man that’s a lot of 185-pounders. Unfortunately, many Canuck fight fans might be left out in the cold. As of yesterday, UFC Fight Club members had already purchased more than 13,000 tickets in the 21,273-seat Bell Centre; tickets don’t go on sale to the general public until Thursday. Maybe there will be some seats left in the nosebleeds by then, but if you’re planning on attending, there may be a scalper in your future.

UFC’s Montreal Event Now ’83′; Tix Go on Sale Sunday

GSP
(GSP, comin’ atcha.)

According to MMA Mania, the UFC’s April 19th card in Montreal — which we’ve been referring to as UFC 84 up to this point — has been re-numbered as UFC 83 in light of the March 8th/Manchester event being scrapped. The Montreal event will still feature the welterweight championship fight between Matt Serra and Georges St. Pierre, and is rumored to feature Mauricio “Shogun” Rua, Rich Franklin, and Mac Danzig as well. Although UFC 83 isn’t yet listed on the UFC’s Ticketmaster page, the word is that tickets will be made available to UFC Fight Club members this Sunday (2/3), to newsletter subscribers on 2/6, and to the general public on 2/8. If you’re planning on going, please be a doll and bring us back some cheap prescription meds.

Additional note: According to the blog on George St. Pierre’s official site, the UFC will be holding a press conference on Monday to make a formal announcement about UFC 83, and St. Pierre will participate. Rush’s blog also tells us that he had a great time at the Affliction commercial shoot with “Rampage Jackson and Dave Mustang from Megadeth.”

CagePotato Debuts Power Rankings: Let the Bitching Begin!

RR
(Where did Randy and Rush land in our pound-for-pound top ten?)

Hawk-eyed CagePotato readers may have noticed a new link on the right side of the page — POWER RANKINGS (!!!), our list of the world’s ten best fighters in each weight class, from heavyweight to featherweight. Well, featherweight only gets a top five because they’re half the size of normal fighters, and fans only care half as much about them. But we also have a “Pound-for-Pound” list, which ranks the ten best fighters in terms of talent, regardless of weight class.

In creating these rankings, we took into account not just recent fight history, but past accomplishments and our own opinions on how each fighter would perform against other elite fighters in their division. Of course, all of this is open for debate, and we’ll soon be building separate pages for each weight class that will allow you to comment on them individually. In the meantime, check out the rankings and use the comments section on this post to give us your own thoughts. Stay tuned for more updates on our Power Rankings, which will be updated after most major fight cards. Let’s get it on!

Matt Serra Needs Jenny Craig ASAP

Matt Serra

Dave Meltzer reported about the current conditioning of UFC Welterweight Champion, Matt Serra in his recent print edition of Wrestling Observer newsletter.mmamania.com dug this up:

“Matt Serra’s condition improved greatly over the past week. The week before he was in intense pain. This week he was still having trouble walking. While watching a training session, he almost considered going to the mat to demonstrate a technique, but then decided it probably wouldn’t be the smartest thing. He hasn’t been able to do any training and is probably more than 200 pounds.”

As you recall, Serra had some pretty extensive damage done to his back while training to step into the cage with Matt Hughes at UFC 79: Nemesis on December 29th. He’s now slated to meet the fighter who walks away with the win when Hughes meets Georges St. Pierre in the replacement match. This was supposed to go down in 2008, but with Serra ballooned up to 200+, we’re not looking for it to happen too early in the new year. Coming back from an injury like that is tough enough, but Dude, push yourself away from the dinner table after your 5th helping of yams. Yeah, we understand the way you guys fluctuate in weight and we’re not claiming to be training experts. What we do know is we want to see your next fight as soon as possible, so lay off the cheesecake and grab a diet soda. You’ve got LBs to shed.
