CagePotato PSA: Barboza, Silva and Jones Nominated for ESPYS, So Go Vote!

We’re about to win at IRONY!


We should probably feel sad about the fact that we live in a country where people get more passionate about voting for the winner of a reality show than they do for voting for their school board representatives. Or that many of you have probably quoted “the Founding Fathers™” inaccurately in a typo-ridden Facebook rant at some point in your lives. Or that many of you don’t know when this year’s presidential election is, yet have already voted for the awards we’re about to shamelessly plug.

But if we did that, then we might miss out on one of these fighters winning an ESPY. We wouldn’t want that, would we? Didn’t think so.


Vote or Die: Which British Ring Girl Should the UFC Hire for ‘TUF: Australia vs. UK’?

(Won’t you help provide a much-needed UFC ring girl uniform to an impoverished model like Georgia?)

According to a recent post on, the UFC is looking to hire a “British beauty” to be their new Octagon Girl, starting with a recurring appearance on The Ultimate Fighter Australia vs. UK – The Smashes. The new Octagon Girl could potentially go on to work at live UFC events in the U.K. and even internationally.

To fill the vacancy, there will be an open casting session this Friday, June 15th, at the Hilton Hotel on Edgware Road in London, beginning at 11 a.m. Applicants must be “aged 18-30, athletic and fit, pretty and photogenic, articulate and able to speak on camera, and have previous modelling experience.”

The U.K. arguably has the highest concentration of bomb-ass MMA ring girls per capita than any other country in the world, which means the competition on Friday will be fierce and possibly bloody. So who is most deserving of the gig? We’ve nominated our nine favorite British MMA ring girls after the jump; revisit their past work by clicking their names and photos, and vote for your favorite on our Facebook page. We’ll pass along the results to the UFC, who will most likely tell us to go fuck ourselves. But who knows — maybe your opinion can make a difference.

On to the wimmins…


It’s Election Day, Even in the World of MMA

Maybe you don’t know this because you spend all day on the internet reading about pro fighting and watching old Pride highlight videos, but today is election day in America. It’s kind of a big deal. So much so that it even reaches over into the insular world of mixed martial arts, at least for a few hours.

Today Sherdog has an article that asks some notable fighters and trainers who they’re voting for. The answers are as varied as you’d expect from a group of MMA types. Chuck Liddell is voting for McCain because he’s rich and doesn’t want his taxes raised. His trainer, John Hackleman, is undecided, but he’s definitely voting against California’s Proposition 8 (a ban on gay marriage), because he’s got two fighters who are “half-gay.” Eddie Bravo isn’t voting at all because voting is an illusion and both candidates are working for the Illuminati. Thanks, Eddie. Things were getting a little too sane around here.

Just to prove how big time he is, yesterday Steve Cofield interviewed Barack Obama and asked him about, among other things, Matt Hughes’ criticisms of him. Obama responded that Hughes obviously hasn’t actually read his tax plan (no, Matt, watching Fox News doesn’t count as reading).

Fortunately, Matt Hughes has posted another screed, this time an editorial for a local newspaper written by friends of his. The newspaper did not publish it in their print edition, but Hughes is kind of enough to re-post it on his website, a portion of which appears after the jump.
