Jeff ‘Karmaatemycat’ Watts Scored a First-Round Submission at Cage Titans 19, And We Finally Have a Video to Show You


(“From parts unknown.” Gotta love this dude.)

After a long injury-related hiatus, our dear friend Jeff Watts — aka Karmaatemycat — was back in the cage last month at Cage Titans FC 19 in Plymouth, Massachusetts, where he submitted Max Barrett with a triangle-armbar, midway through the first round of their amateur bantamweight fight.

At the video’s 1:53 mark, you will see the face of pure evil? Jeff giving CagePotato a subtle plug with a devil’s horns gesture. The fight itself starts at the 5:57 mark, and Jeff starts out in three-point troll stance, daring Barrett to enter his world. Barrett gets so flustered that he slips to the mat trying to uppercut Jeff in the face.

Though we’ve always been impressed by Karma’s rock-solid grappling game, he’s gotten even better since his last outing. Once Jeff scores a takedown and starts working his jiu-jitsu, Barrett is on borrowed time. Skip to the 7:17 mark to see Jeff yank Barrett’s left arm off of his head, and immediately transition to an armbar attempt. For a moment (around 8:26), it looks like Barrett succeeds in escaping the armbar, but Jeff only tightens the noose, and now Barrett is caught in a choke as well. Checkmate.

It’s awesome to see a friend succeed — especially a big-hearted guy like Jeff who is loyal to every single person who’s helped him. Congratulations, buddy. You deserve this victory, and we can’t wait for the next one.

Movember Update: Karmaatemycat’s Mo’ Team Needs Your Donations!


(I can’t really grow a moustache either. So yeah, I’ll consider it. / Image via Muffvember advocate @MieshaTate)

Whether you’re struggling to push out some lip-fuzz or are already rocking a Full Beltran, we’d like to take a moment to thank everybody who’s participating in Movember this year to raise cash and awareness for important men’s health issues. And we wanted to send a special shout-out to our old friend Jefferey “Karmaatemycat” Watts, who has joined up the Mo’ed Men super-network that our comrades at MadeMan.com organized.

We’ll keep the sales pitch brief: Karma has a heart of gold, and the Movember cause has personal significance to him, as several of his family members and friends have been stricken with cancer over the years. If you’ll recall, he was also one of the main driving forces behind our successful fundraising efforts for Laura “angrylittlefeet” Nicholson earlier this year. So even if you’re not growing a mo’ this year, please swing by Jefferey’s page and donate a few dollars to the cause. Every little bit helps. Any questions, let us know in the comments section. Thanks guys.

Reminder: Donate to “CagePotato’s Fight for ALF” and Help Support Laura “angrylittlefeet” Nicholson’s Fight Against Cancer

We’d like to start by thanking each and every one of you who have already donated to the “CagePotato’s Fight for ALF” Indiegogo page. Thanks to your generous contributions, we have already managed to raise $1,040 to help Laura “angrylittlefeet” Nicholson pay for the various expenditures related to her recent Hodgkin’s Lymphoma diagnosis. You guys are truly amazing.

That being said, we still have a ways to go if we are to reach our goal of $5000. So if you happen to have a few extra bucks laying around, please donate to this good cause today and help support a beloved member of the Potato Nation. And to give you an update on ALF‘s current situation, we go to none other than the woman herself:

Greetings Potato Nation. 
Our fearless leader, Ben, has asked me to write a little something to let you good folks know what’s going on with me while I go thru being treated for my cancer.

First of all I want to thank each of you for your generosity. Whether you sent kind words, donated, or just took the time to read and maybe share my site. I am grateful to all of you.

Let me just say that before my immune system took a fast trip right down the shitter I was an optometric tech. I am not a writer nor do I play one on TV. At times my grammar would probably give even the most sympathetic English teacher conniptions. And my relationship with punctuation is shaky at best. So bitch all you want in the comments, I realize it’s kind of a national pastime around here, but don’t say you weren’t warned.

Had my first official appointment with the cancer Doc last Friday. Up until now it’s just been a shit-ton of tests. So we go thru all the standard crap and of course he sends me for more tests. Another CAT scan,  a PET scan ( which I suspect is much more unpleasant than it sounds) bloodwork etc. After all that they shuffle me off to begin chemo. Sounds like a party. In hell.

As far as how I’m feeling – well I’m anemic as hell so I am tired all of the time. But other than that not too bad all things considered.

Thanks again.

Visit the “CagePotato’s Fight for A.L.F.” Indiegogo page today and contribute whatever you can; $50 gets you a CP “Pull No Punches” shirt, $1000 gets you a “No Questions Asked” webcam show with BG or Karma, and Danga is still willing to take “Head Kicks for Cancer” from anyone who lives in the Boston area for the low, low price of $200. Thanks again, you guys.

Fuck Cancer: Donate to “CagePotato’s Fight for ALF” and Help Out a Beloved Member of the Potato Nation


(A personal message from Karmaatemycat, recorded last night.)

For years, Laura “angry little feet” Nicholson (aka “ALF”) has been a calming, motherly influence on CagePotato.com’s forums and comment sections. Just kidding — she’s a salty s.o.b., meaner than a sack full of rattlesnakes…and we wouldn’t change her for the world. A passionate supporter of mixed martial arts and a superstar on twitter (@angrylittlefeet), Laura has become a true friend to many folks in the Potato Nation.

Yesterday, we learned that Laura was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma (“The big C“) and we were devastated. But we know that she won’t back down from this fight, and we’re going to have her back every step of the way.

Like so many Americans afflicted with cancer, Laura has no health insurance, and has already gone $10,000 into debt. We just want to help dig her out and raise her spirits. Every little bit helps, right? So we’ve started an Indiegogo page — CagePotato’s Fight for ALF — and we’ll be asking for your donations* over the next couple months.

The $5,000 goal that we’ve set for this campaign represents a tiny slice of the financial burden that Laura will have to endure. That’s the reality. But we want ALF to know that we have her back, just as we’d have the back of any devoted CP family member who falls on hard times.

Give a dollar, give $5, give whatever you feel comfortable with. (By the way, a $50 donation gets you a CP t-shirt. A $1,000 donation gets you a live cam show with either BG or Karmaatemycat. Ten minutes, anything goes. Yeah, we’re working on better prizes.) All funds raised will go to Laura, even if we don’t reach our goal. Considering that tens of thousands of people visit this site every day, we’re confident that we can hit it.

We intend to mobilize the MMA community to help spread the word about Laura’s health situation and our efforts. In the meantime, visit the “CagePotato’s Fight for A.L.F.” Indiegogo page and join the fight. Thanks guys. We friggin’ love all of you.

Ben Goldstein and Jefferey Watts

Gross Video of the Night: ‘Karmaatemycat’ Drains His Ear, For Your Entertainment


(Props: karmaatemycat.tumblr.com, the Internet’s #1 source for Karmaatemycat video blogs.)

The life of an MMA fighter isn’t all loose women and free lollipops. It’s a 24/7 grind, and if you’re a hungry up-and-comer without the benefit of fancy-shmancy UFC accident insurance, you might have to perform some home surgery once in a while.

Our dear friend Jefferey “Karmaatemycat” Watts recently posted the following vid on his official site after a nasty cauliflower ear flare-up, with the following description: “Oh yeah thats right I did it, I drained that bitch. I am sure it wont be the last time but dammit if I am not worried anymore and it beats waiting on useless Doctors who went to school for ten years to tell me about shit they don’t know anything about.

So how did Karma’s ear-drainage go? Well, hit that play button and find out.

Video: ‘Karmaatemycat’ Chokes Out Another One at Raging Wolf XII


(Props: 1tSurge)

Jefferey “Karmaatemycat” Watts continues to let his haters be his motivators. The CagePotato Fight Team captain and fundraising superstar increased his amateur record to 4-1 on Saturday night in a featherweight bout at Raging Wolf XII in Irving, New York.

Jeff’s opponent Josh Lange entered the fight with a 6-0 ammy record, but had no answer to the riddle of Karma. After doing a Jon Jones impression for the first minute, Jeff stands and fires some leg kicks. Lange shoots and takes Karma down (BIG MISTAKE) but can’t do much with the position. Jeff calmly starts working his guard, and before long, he sinks a triangle choke. Sorry, judges.

It was an especially meaningful win for Karma, who spent the last month suffering through a fight cancellation and a knee injury, and was fighting in front of his friends and family for the first time. When Jeff finally goes pro and starts kicking asses in major organizations, remember where you saw him first.

After the jump: Video of Karma’s entrance. How many CagePotato t-shirts can you count?

“Ask Dan” #4: Worked Fights, Steroids, the Death Penalty, and Chuck Norris


(Yep. Just a couple of total badasses, right there.)

Do you know what today is, gentlemen? It’s the last day of Movember, which means that tomorrow you can finally shave your upper lip and return to a somewhat normal life. To celebrate, we’re proud to present the fourth and final installment of Dan Severn’s mailbag column, in which the famously-moustached UFC Hall of Famer shares his wisdom on worked fights, steroids, the death penalty, Chuck Norris’s beard, getting buck-ass naked in a parking lot, and more hot-button issues. Our deepest gratitude goes to Dan for gracing this website with his sense of humor and weird stories for the last month. Show him some love at DanSevern.com and his Facebook page.

But before we get into that, a couple parting notes about Movember. If you grew out an impressive mo’ this year, we encourage you to enter Break.com’s Show Off Your Mo contest for a chance to win a Samsung HD camera, and feel free to post a moustache pic on CagePotato’s Facebook wall. And if you still have some money left to donate, please consider doing it on KarmaAteMyCat’s CagePotato Mo Bro page. Karma’s tireless efforts have already raised $664 at the time of this writing — amazing work, bro — and he’s trying to break the $800 mark by the end of the day. Need more incentive than helping to fight testicular and prostate cancer? How ’bout this: Today’s biggest donor will receive a CagePotato t-shirt and, if you want it, a chance to write your own contributor column on CagePotato.

And now, the stunning conclusion of “Ask Dan”…

RwilsonR asks: Have you ever seen/been involved in/know anyone involved in any worked fights? Was this ever common practice with any promotions you have fought for?

“Ask Dan” #3: The One Where Severn Spits Blood Into His Opponent’s Face

(“Nice hipster glasses, buddy! Let’s see what they look like…SUPLEXED!!!!” Photo via Dan’s Facebook page.)

In this week’s installment of his mailbag column for CagePotato.com, UFC Hall of Famer Dan Severn discusses a memorably bloody Vale Tudo match, the greatest night of his career, and the technique that he wants to see banned from the sport.

DARKHORSE06 asks: What is the worst injury you ever received?

The worst injury I’ve ever received in my career has probably been a cut. One time I was competing in Brazil back in the No Holds Barred days — known as Vale Tudo in Brazil — and my opponent hit me with a big overhand right that split open my top lip. When I grabbed hold of him to try and shake some of the cobwebs out of my head I noticed he was covered in baby oil so I couldn’t get him down.

In the clinch, my opponent threw a knee up that hit me in the mouth and split my bottom lip open. Somehow he was able to get me into the corner and I couldn’t really see as he started trying to attack me with knees, stomps and other techniques of that nature. I was trying to think of some way out when suddenly it dawned on me to suck the blood off my face and into my mouth. Once it was in my mouth, I would basically just spit the blood into my opponent’s face because it was not against the rules. As my opponent looked away so as not to get any blood spit at him, that’s when I got the upper hand, swept his feet out from underneath him and dropped him down on his butt.
