‘The Greatest MMA Fight of All Time’ Tournament Is Coming Soon: Which of These Classic Battles Deserves a Spot in the Bracket?


(As always, “WAR WAND! PRIDE NEVA DIE!” is an acceptable write-in vote.)

Peep this, Potato Nation — in honor of March Madness, we’re putting together a big bracketology feature on the best fights in MMA history, with your votes determining the #1 Greatest MMA Fight of All Time. (Launch date: TBA…but pretty soon!) I’m looking forward to it, and you should too.

The only problem is, our interactive bracket only has space for 16 entries, which means that a bunch of classic MMA matches won’t be included. I can’t reveal the bracket yet, but I can reveal the ten honorable mentions that are all competing for the last spot. Check ‘em out below, and click those links for video clips of each one.

Kazushi Sakuraba vs. Carlos Newton
PRIDE 3, 6/24/98

Matt Hughes vs. BJ Penn 2
UFC 63, 9/23/06

Dan Henderson vs. Wanderlei Silva 2
PRIDE 33, 2/24/07

Chuck Liddell vs. Wanderlei Silva
UFC 79, 12/29/07

Anthony Pettis vs. Benson Henderson 1
WEC 53, 12/16/10

Frankie Edgar vs. Gray Maynard 2
UFC 125, 1/1/11

Cheick Kongo vs. Pat Barry
UFC on Versus 4, 6/26/11

Wanderlei Silva vs. Brian Stann
UFC on FUEL 8, 3/3/13

Gilbert Melendez vs. Diego Sanchez
UFC 166, 10/19/13

Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva vs. Mark Hunt
UFC Fight Night 33, 12/7/13

After the jump, you will find a voting widget. Cast your vote on which of the above fights is most worthy of a place in the bracket, and that fight will earn the sixteenth spot. Votes must be in by Thursday morning at 9 a.m. ET.

Make sense? If not, please drop us a line in the comments section or on Twitter. Now get to voting…

Is it Possible to Fix The UFC Hall of Fame Induction Process?


(Well? Photo courtesy of Getty Images.)

By the time that this is published, the ceremony that will make Stephan Bonnar an official member of the UFC Hall of Fame will be underway. Bonnar’s resume includes an 8-7 UFC record, a flawless 0-0 record in UFC title fights, two failed drug tests and the significance of his TUF Finale bout against Forrest Griffin – a fight so important to UFC history that it has its own Wikipedia page. Bonnar also is on good terms with Dana White, which is arguably the most important criterion for induction into what is supposedly the UFC’s highest honor.

Regardless of how you feel about Bonnar’s induction, that last sentence should make you feel uncomfortable. A company that already has trouble convincing non-fans that it isn’t glorified professional wrestling selects people into its hall of fame the same way that the WWE does – by allowing one person to dictate who is worthy of the honor. Both halls have some debatable inductions. Both halls have some notable omissions. Neither hall is taken seriously by most fans of either sport.

While many articles have been written about how Bonnar’s induction highlights everything that’s wrong with the UFC Hall of Fame selection process, pretty much none of them offered any solutions. Below you’ll find a few suggestions to fix the hall, as well as reasons that they may not work. Let’s start off with the most obvious fix…

WTF?! Video of the Day: When You Don’t Vote, You End Up in a Kumite Deathmatch With Tim Kennedy

The Ranger Up crew are known for two things: making hilarious/awesome t-shirts and making hilarious/awesome/creepy videos starring either Tim Kennedy or Jorge Rivera. They’ve parodied everything from Monty Python to Katy Perry, but more often than not, their videos amount to little more than a dose of anti-Michael Bisping propganda. We would be quick to declare these videos an undeniable success had they not severely backfired on Bisping’s opponents in each instance, but they were at least moderately entertaining in failure nonetheless.

And today, Kennedy and the gang have decided to shift their focus from that of public humiliation to that of social responsibility. We’re talking about voting, people. It kicks ass. And regardless of your stance on the candidates at hand, the economy, gay rights, abortion, or having binders full of women, you should probably vote, because if you don’t, you could end up like the poor gentlemen above.

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

We’re about to win at IRONY!

TOP SCORE!!!

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.

‘Never Surrender’ Caption Contest: The Finalists

Hector Echavarria BJ Penn Quinton Jackson Never Surrender MMA DVD movie

After a furious ten-day session in which 453 captions were submitted, it’s time to bring this thing home. Below are the 11 best entries in our Never Surrender caption contest. Read them all below, then vote for your favorite in the poll on the right. The five captions with the most votes win their authors a DVD copy of Never Surrender, and the five runners-up win CagePotato "Hall of Fame" t-shirts. The last-place caption earns the bitter frustration of coming so close to success but falling just short. Voting ends tomorrow at 4 p.m. ET, and the winners will be announced shortly after. Thanks to everyone who entered, and good luck!

Steve: Hey guys, after the movie, let’s go to my bedroom, take our shoes off, lie down on my bed, take about 20 to 30 minutes, and…

Rodney: This was taken just before BJ returned to his trailer and failed to come back out for the second half of the movie.

Til: Ok you can have him this weekend, but remember — lots of food and no Red Bull.

Voting — it’s so hot right now. In honor of next week’s election (and to prevent some of the inevitable bitching), we’re gonna go back to having you guys vote for the winners of these things. Remember, two copies of the November issue of Playboy signed by Rachelle herself are on the line, courtesy of Playboy Digital. And the nominees are…

Ted Nutmeg: In a bittersweet moment, Lyoto realized that standing next the chick in the red skirt is the closest he’ll ever come to scoring a knockout in the UFC.

PHISTAKUFFS: “Tito better be careful parking the car!”

RTS: Chick 1: “My man is a technician in bed.”
Chick 2: “Sounds great!”
Chick 1: “It’s actually quite boring.”
Chick 2: “My man is a knock out artist.”
Chick 1: “That sounds good.”
Chick 2: “He only lasts a minute, if that.”

Baba: Somewhere, Anderson and Thiago Silva are laughing in the midst of a Timberland shoot.

The king adrock: For the first time in career, Machida pressed the action.

JTho: After three grueling days and countless different models, the photographer was finally able to keep Alexander’s knees from buckling, and Machida from back pedaling out of the shot.

JoseMonkey: This photo was taken just moments after someone yelled, “Hey douchebag!”

Jordan: “Ok, next question….what the fuck are you looking at?”

Geriatric Peon: The Transvestite Realization Face

Horror Fighter: “All right, take ‘em off. It’s time to do the Condom Depot photos now.”

Cast your vote in the poll on the right side of the page. The two captions with the most votes by 8 a.m. ET on Monday win magazines. You are welcome to cast write-in votes in the comments section below, but if they aren’t shown above, they probably weren’t that funny. So please do your civic duty as a CagePotato reader, and good luck to all the nominees!
