13 Random MMA Fighters Who Somehow Have Their Own Wikipedia Pages


(This guy getting punched out by Jacob Volkmann has a Wikipedia page, yet Ilir Latifi does not. I *dare* you to identify him without using Google.)

By Seth Falvo

Much to my surprise, UFC light-heavyweight Ilir Latifi still does not have a Wikipedia page. Despite earning a first-round submission victory at UFC Fight Night 37 and headlining an event — never mind how random that match felt — Latifi still has to settle for being a footnote on the pages of the cards he has fought on. That’s pretty ridiculous, considering that Wikipedia doesn’t exactly have high standards for page-worthy topics. (See: Chess-related deaths, uncombable hair syndrome.) CagePotato.com has its own page. John Morgan of MMA Junkie has his own page as well. Oh yeah, and so do these 13 MMA fighters, arranged in alphabetical order:

Notable Achievements: Jobbed to James Terry on two different Strikeforce undercards. Almost worthy of a spot in MMA’s Weird-Stomach-Tattoo Hall of Fame. Almost.
According to Wikipedia: “He is the current WSCA (Wyoming Sports Combat Association) Welterweight Champion.”

TUF China Finale Results: Here’s What Happened to the Fighters With Wiki Pages

The UFC’s first TUF season in China is over. Zhang Lipeng defeated Wang Sai to become the first-ever Chinese Ultimate Fighter winner.

But I’m sure most of you don’t really care too much about that. After all, TUF china was a show with a recruitment policy so lax that an 0-0 yoga instructor somehow made it into the cast.

Despite the questionable levels of talent present, there were a few important fights on the card—relevant matches and interesting clashes of styles. Which fights were those? We’re gonna recap them for you.

[VIDEO] Tölegen Akylbekov Attempts to Win the “Bob Sapp Challenge”


Italian Wikipedia does not have the same quality standards as its English counterpart.

Before we go any further, the answer is yes. That image is a real screenshot of Bob Sapp’s MMA record on both the English version of Wikipedia and its Italian counterpart, taken around 2:30 (CT) this afternoon. Those who follow MMA already know that Bob Sapp is nothing more than a joke and a disgrace, and with Wikipedia cracking down on UFC events that aren’t important enough to deserve their own pages, it should come as little surprise that yet another effortless loss from Bob Sapp has yet to be added to his fight record.

Friday night, Bob Sapp set out to mock our sport professional sports once again in Kazakhstan against Tölegen Akylbekov. Knowing that Bob Sapp was going to put up as much of a fight as The Brooklyn Brawler, Akylbekov decided that he was going to attempt to win The Bob Sapp Challenge™. For those uninitiated, the rules are simple: Rather than defeating Bob Sapp as quickly as possible, one must force Bob Sapp to actually put up something resembling a fight for as long as possible. Sounds easy enough…until you realize you’re attempting to make a guy who has tapped out to a double-leg takedown actually put up a fight.

(Hey, a win’s a win. / Image via Brett Rogers’s wiki page.)

For chaos-loving MMA fans, getting one over on Wikipedia is a mark of honor. This UG thread reminded us of the hilarious tradition of Wikipedia-page vandalism, so we decided to scour the Internet for some of our favorite MMA-related examples; thanks to all the anonymous men and women who quickly screen-capped these gems before they were fixed. Check out our full gallery of MMA wiki edits after the jump, and if we’ve left out any good ones, shoot us some links in the comments section.

CagePotato.com Is on Wikipedia Now, Homey

CagePotato.com wikipedia

With the help of our buddy Josh G., CagePotato has been officially recognized by that ultimate source of online knowledge, Wikipedia. Gone are the days when our only presence on that site was a reference to how cursed Phil Baroni’s wife is. Now we’re ready to be listed alongside such thought-provoking topics as Other Roles Played by Martin Lawrence on the TV series Martin and the Lloyds Bank turd. As you can see from the screen-cap above, there are still some doubts as to how serious of an operation we are. So if you have anything positive to add to en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CagePotato (preferably sourced to a respectable third-party), send your suggestions to feedback@cagepotato.com and we’ll get ‘em up. This should go without saying, but page-vandalism won’t be appreciated, even if it’s funny page-vandalism. Do us this one favor, okay?
