MMA Fail of the Year Candidate #3: Dude Does a Tito Ortiz “Grave Digger” Celebration and the Stockton Taunt Before Getting KTFO


(Go ahead and turn off your speakers for this one.) 

Well here it is, folks. The hands down greatest MMA fail of the year.

It’s kind of a shame, really. There’s so much time left in 2013, yet who in their right mind is going to even attempt to pull off a more embarrassing feat in the cage than the gentleman above? There is so much fail involved in this video that we’re almost certain it was a self-parody gone horribly awry.

Example #1: Dude has the audacity to do a Tito Ortiz “Grave Digger” celebration PRE-FIGHT. While wearing headgear. With the grace of a young Natalia Makarova. Bonus points for flare.

Example #2: Dude is arrogant enough to celebrate pre-fight, yet self-conscious enough to don Under Armour during the actual fight.

Example #3: Dude does the Stockton “Come at me bro” taunt BEFORE A PUNCH HAS EVEN BEEN THROWN.

Example #4: Dude drops his hands and dares his opponent to knock him out.

Example #5: SAY GOODNIGHT.

Fin.

Hilarious Boxing Update: Dude Tells his Opponent to Come at Him, Is Immediately KTFO.


(If you’re coming on…shit, where’d I put my glasses? Props to Deadspin for the find.)

For those of you who still don’t think that taunting only looks cool if the person who wins the fight does it, please direct your attention to Exhibit Z: This clip from a boxing match between Miguel Zuniga and Daquan Arnett on Saturday night.

During the fifth round of the bout, Zuniga began to finally crack Arnett’s counterpunch-heavy style, backing Arnett up against the ropes as he unleashed his hardest punches. Sensing his opponent was in trouble, Zuniga was all about trading haymakers, while Arnett was more interested in silly things like defense, counter left hooks and not getting his ass kicked. Clearly frustrated, Zuniga decided that his best option in this situation was to channel his inner Harold Howard, signaling for his opponent to “COME ON!” while he let Arnett off the ropes.

I’m not here to fault Zuniga for attempting a mid-fight Harold Howard tribute. Hell, I don’t think anyone reading this is here to do that. But…if you’re telling your opponent to “come on,” can you at least do it in a stereotypically Canadian accent? And for crying out loud, please don’t immediately get knocked the fuck out, either. Especially if you attempt zero cartwheel kicks in the process.

Bad Idea of the Day: Edgar Garcia Encourages Jacob Ortiz to Knock Him The F*ck Out


(Video props: YouTube.com/BFCLUB)

If our past pleas to him are any indication, God pretty much lets this MMA stuff sort itself out without much interference. That’s not to say that The Fates don’t follow the sport, and they had front row seats for the prelims at last night’s Bellator 55 event.

If there’s ever a good time to showboat, it’s when you’re pretty much dominating your opponent. From that standpoint, Edgar Garcia‘s timing was impeccable. With the sounds of the opening bell still reverberating through the air, Jacob Ortiz was crouched low and looking for the takedown, but with his first few attempts stuffed before they even really got started, he had little option but to duke it out with the former UFC competitor and look for an opening. And so Ortiz circled away throughout the first round with awkward footwork and hands down around his waist, getting tagged in the exchanges and eating a score of brutal leg kicks. When he did finally get to uncork a big right to Garcia’s jaw, his opponent seemed unfazed, tapping his own chin and inviting more blows. As Garcia would soon learn, Karma doesn’t care for such bravado.
