(A guy losing his mind over a cheeseburger, a pantsing, *and* a kimura attempt? We are truly living in a golden era, you guys.)
While not quite as popular as the “Bully Gets Owned” video, the “Fast Food Fight” video is quickly becoming one of the most sought-after subgenres of Youtube-based amateur fight videos on the web. Whether taking place at a Steak n’ Shake, a McDonalds, or my personal favorite, a Denny’s, the fast food fight bridges the gap between humanity’s insatiable thirst for sustenance and violence in a way that Medieval Times has never truly been able to exploit.
Below you will find ten of the most infamous fast food brawls to ever be caught on camera, but on the off-chance we missed one of your favorites, give us a shout in the comments section or tweet us at @CagePotatoMMA.
(Probably the most epic fast food fight of them all.)

It was supposed to be a one-on-one fight, but you know how these things go. As soon as White Shirt Guy started landing on Blue Shirt Guy with a Matt Brown-esque storm of violence, Blue Shirt Guy’s homey stepped in from the sidelines to pull White Shirt Guy off. And according to the unwritten rules of Mexican street fights, as soon as there is encroachment by an amigo, team fighting commences. In this case, a friend of White Shirt Guy runs in and immediately ends the match with a flying head-kick out of a Jackie Chan movie.
My favorite part of this video actually comes directly after the flying kick, when the guy who landed it is so psyched up that he starts bouncing around like Vega from Street Fighter II. That’s the kind of dude you want in your corner.Read More DIGG THIS

Two weeks after Chris Beal gave us a spectacular walk-off flying knee knockout in the UFC, Bellator middleweight Brian Rogers landed one of his own against Adrian Miles, during the prelims of last night’s Bellator 119 event in Rama, Ontario, Canada. The way Miles crumples in a Nelmark-esque heap is pretty gnarly — especially because his eyes remain open when he’s out. Yeesh.
This was actually Rogers’s third career victory via flying knee. You can see his previous two after the jump…Read More DIGG THIS

(Australian bully talks trash, gets Barboza’d.)
CP reader Juan Pablo B. sent us the above video earlier today, and it made us realize that “bully gets owned” videos have become a powerful Internet genre unto themselves, like scare pranks or ASMR vids. The appeal is obvious: We rarely get to see aggressive dickheads get their comeuppance in real life, so it’s always incredibly satisfying when moments like these are caught on tape.
There are literally thousands more videos where these came from, so if we’ve left out any of your favorites, drop some links in our comments section or tweet ‘em to us @CagePotatoMMA.Read More DIGG THIS

The kickboxing event GLORY 16 went down Saturday night at the 1STBANK Center in Broomfield, Colorado, and has been making headlines for two reasons. First, spin-kick artist Raymond Daniels added another spectacular knockout to his highlight reel when he nailed Francois Ambang with the “two touch” jumping back kick shown above. This one might be tough to beat in the Best Knockout of 2014 Potato Award category.
And in sadder news, UFC heavyweight veteran Pat Barry — whose return to kickboxing was supposed to rejuvenate his fight career — was brutally knocked out cold by Zack Mwekassa in the first round of their match. After the fight, there were reports floating around that Pat Barry vs. Mirko Cro Cop was booked as the headliner of GLORY’s next show on June 21st, which would be kind of insane considering that Pat has been knocked out three times in his last four fights and could probably use a little time off. Luckily, the booking appears to be an unfounded rumor at this point; we’ll update you when we know more.Read More DIGG THIS

(Thanks to CagePotato reader Juan Pablo B. for the tip!)
Everybody underestimates head movement — but in a one-on-one street-fight, it’s probably the greatest advantage you can have. This little altercation went down recently in Cordoba, Argentina, featuring a guy in a red jacket who slips ‘n’ rips like a pro, and a dude in a white long-sleeve who clearly doesn’t have the same level of kickboxing experience.
The whole thing lasts about three seconds, and ends with red-jacket guy landing a beautiful right high kick that sends the other guy tumbling face first like Steve Judson. Luckily, the fight ended there and nobody was gang-stomped or bashed with a 2×4. Kudos for being civilized, Argentina.Read More DIGG THIS

Former UFC heavyweight Pat Barry made his return to kickboxing last night, knocking out opponent Ed Burris at CSC 39: USA vs. the World, which took place at the Arthur Ashe Athletic Center in Richmond, Virginia.
Since this 15-second Instagram clip is all we have to work with, we have no idea if the fight was even remotely competitive, or if Burris just covered up the whole time, waiting for the inevitable. (We’ll update this post if/when a full video of the match surfaces.) At any rate, Barry picks up some valuable ring-time and confidence heading into his GLORY debut against Zack Mwekassa, May 3rd in Broomfield, Colorado.
Well done, HD.Read More DIGG THIS

We wish we could say that Drew Fickett turned his career around when he found sobriety — that he became a terror on the regional circuit, and will be returning to the UFC any day now. Unfortunately, that doesn’t seem to be in the cards. Fickett suffered his fourth-straight loss at CES MMA 22 in Rhode Island on Friday night, eating a brutal head kick from local lightweight Luis Felix that dropped Fickett like a sack of doorknobs.
It was the kind of knockout that makes you think, okay, maybe now is the time for Drew to walk away. It’s not just that he’s already racked up a solid history of brain trauma. At this point, Fickett is only being used as a recognizable stepping-stone for regional talent, and the sole benefit for him being there is a modest paycheck. And if you watch the entire fight — where Fickett seems like he’s still trying to figure out the standup game, despite having over 60 pro fights to his credit — it’s clear that what Luis Felix did to him is just going to keep happening to Fickett if he keeps competing.
Anyway, kudos to this Luis Felix guy. But damn…anybody else get a case of the sads watching Fickett get dummied up like this?Read More DIGG THIS
