Like price sticker residue on a prized picture frame, these myths refused to be scrubbed away. You’ll encounter them on forums, barroom discussions, and even from the mouths of so-called experts. What myths are these? We’re glad you asked…

By CagePotato.com Staff 

1. MMA wouldn’t exist without Dana White. Wrong. See here.

2. Royce Gracie was a humble, respectful warrior. [Ed's note: Hopefully there's been enough recent evidence to put this falsehood to bed until the end of time.]

3. Chuck Liddell in his prime would have destroyed ________.

4. MMA has nothing in common with professional wrestling.

5. [Celebrity with zero combat sports experience] would make a great MMA fighter!

6. Motivated BJ Penn could/still can beat anybody.

7. Healthy Shogun could/still can beat anybody.

8. Brock Lesnar could’ve held the belt forever and a day had it not been for diverticulitis.

9. The UFC is not a sports entertainment company.

Quote of the Day: Ronda Rousey’s Pre-Fight Routine Includes as Much Sweet Love-Making as Possible

One of the oldest combat sports training myths is that abstaining from sex helps your performance on fight night. Phil Baroni may have put it best when he told us: “You take punches better when you abstain from, ah…punching your own loads out. It makes you fuckin’ mean, I’ll tell you that much.”

But other fighters, including UFC welterweight champion/masturbation-enthusiast Georges St. Pierre have dismissed the no-sex rule, and apparently, Ronda Rousey preps for a fight by smushing as much as possible. As she told Jim Rome last night:

For girls it raises your testosterone, so I try to have as much sex as possible before I fight actually. Not with like everybody, I don’t put out like a Craigslist ad or anything, but if I got a steady I’m going to be like ‘yo, fight time’s coming up’,” Rousey said with a laugh.

However: “You can’t (expletive) somebody and go fight that day.

Sex with Ronda Rousey has to be a terrifying experience. Think about it. There you are, just sitting on the couch catching up on the Sunday Styles section, when Ronda busts in wearing a damp rash-guard, and says “Yo, fight time’s coming up. Dick: out,” then angrily demands that you get in her guard while at least one Diaz brother lurks around in the kitchen, trying to figure out how to use the blender. Are you man enough to deal with that?

Quote of the Day: “Judo” Gene LeBell Talks The Steven Seagal Incident


(It was like this, but smellier.) 

Whether you are a man of religion or a man of science, there are those few urban legends out there that, despite their lack of physical evidence or confirmation, are universally accepted as truth. So goes the story of illustrious judo champion Gene Lebell’s confrontation with the true Godfather of mixed martial arts, Sensei Steven Seagal.

The story goes like this: while on the set of Out for Justice, Seagal happened to mention that, as a result of his Aikido training and extensive blues guitar playing, his Senseiness was impervious to chokes. LeBell, who at 58, happened to be a stunt coordinator on set at the time, opted to take Seagal up on his boisterous claim. Seagal accepted, was choked out, and proceeded to pee and/or poop his pants. Due to an alleged gag order placed on everyone from LeBell to the cast and crew who happened to witness the event, no one has come forth in the time since to confirm or deny this story. John Leguizamo brought it up once, and was promptly beaten to a pulp.

Well let today, March 12th, forever be known as a triumph for the human race, as LeBell has finally broken his silence. And according to him, even if Seagal did in fact poop himself, it’s nothing to be ashamed of.
