FoodPotato: The 16 Buffalo Wild Wings Sauces and Their UFC Fighter Equivalents

(Believe it or not, this isn’t a sponsored post. It’s just one of those things that happens when it’s a slow news week and you’re desperate.)

By Ben Goldstein

If you’re a UFC fan who doesn’t live in a densely-populated urban area with multiple sports-bar options within walking distance, chances are you’ve spent some time in a Buffalo Wild Wings, since it’s one of the only chain restaurants that reliably shows UFC events. The food is almost beside the point, though BWW is known for its wings (obviously) and the 16 signature sauces you can put on them.

So as a tribute to everyone who’s ever waited an hour-and-a-half for a table at B-Dubs because you’re too cheap to order a pay-per-view at home, I humbly present one of the dumbest list ideas I’ve ever come up with. Ladies and gentlemen, here are the 16 Buffalo Wild Wings wing sauces and their UFC fighter equivalents. Just be grateful I didn’t arrange this in slideshow format.

Sweet BBQ
BWW description: “Traditional BBQ sauce: Satisfyingly sweet.”
UFC fighter equivalent: Non-threatening and vaguely Southern? I’m gonna go with Jessamyn Duke — but only because Bubba McDaniel isn’t on the UFC roster anymore.

BWW description: “Terrifically tasty Teriyaki sauce.”
UFC fighter equivalent: Takeya Mizugaki. He’s Japanese, he’s consistently good, but he’s not going to blow anybody’s mind, flavor-wise.

BWW description: “Classic wing sauce: High flavor, low heat.”
UFC fighter equivalent: Gleison Tibau, a guy who never made a major impact in the UFC and yet is tied for the most victories in UFC lightweight history. How the hell did that happen? Like mild sauce, he’s just always been around.

Proving once again that Japanese MMA organizations have much better senses of style than their American counterparts, here’s the latest promotional image for DREAM 7 (March 8th; Saitama, Japan; airing free on HDNet). You can download wallpaper images here. DREAM 7 will feature the first round of their featherweight grand prix, which explains the inspiration for the winged fighter shown above. But since I’m a dumb round-eye, I have no idea what those characters on the wing say. Can anybody help?

IFL World Grand Prix To Be Broadcast On Network TV

The International Fight League’s World Grand Prix goes down tomorrow in Hoffman Estates, IL, showcasing the top four fighters from their lightweight, welterweight, middleweight and heavyweight divisions, as well as a championship bout between the two best light heavies, Vladdy Matyushenko and Alex Schoenauer. MyNetworkTV will broadcast the first hour of the card live beginning at 8 p.m. CST.

The two fights that are guaranteed to go down in that hour are the light heavyweight match, and a lightweight meeting between undefeated 20-year-old Chris Horodecki of the L.A. Anacondas and Bart Palaszewski of Pat Miletich’s Quad City Silverbacks. Horodecki and Palaszewski fought earlier this year at an IFL event, with Horodecki eking out a split decision despite being dominated by the Silverback in the first round:

Weigh-ins are today at, of all places, B-Dubs. CagePotato strongly recommends the cheeseburger dippers, pulled pork sandwich and Blazin’ sauce.


Look on the bright side…

At Hooters, everyone’s a champion.
