21 Incredible Minimalist Movie Posters

The Eight Most Insane Victory Celebrations of All Time

8. Tito Ortiz‘s grave-digger routine

We don’t know how many times Tito must have practiced this thing in the mirror at home — but you have to admit it was pretty badass the first time you saw it. To be figuratively buried under the Octagon is the pinnacle of pwnage.

7. Phil Baroni‘s soliloquy
A CagePotato favorite. And we quote: “I’m the best! I’m the best eva! I’m the fuckin’ best! I’m the man! I’m the man! I’m the man! [unintelligible], you’re next! I’m the man! I’m the best eva! Eva! I’m the man! Yeaaaaahhh! Yeaaaahhhh! I’m the best! I told you.”

(tie) 6. B.J. Penn can’t stop kissing Matt Hughes

We could have sworn smooching was outlawed back at UFC 15, along with headbutting, small-joint manipulation and hair-pulling. But nevertheless, B.J. Penn leaned over and planted a big wet one on Matt Hughes after stealing his welterweight belt at UFC 46, then did it again once Hughes was able to get to his feet. As a repressed Christian farmboy, the incident may have brought up some latent desires in Matt that he wasn’t quite ready to deal with.

(tie) 6. “B.J. Penn is leaving the building!”
Sometimes you get overwhelmed with emotion; sometimes you just really need to take a dump.

5. Cro Cop’s Celebratory Overkill (begins at the 3:02 mark)

In terms of fighting ability, Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic vs. Bob Sapp was one of the biggest mismatches in K-1 history. Even though The Beast came out strong with his usual gong-and-dash, the outcome was inevitable, and Sapp was crying in the fetal position by the 90-second mark. When the fight was stopped, every Croatian within 500 miles of Saitama mobbed the ring; I’ve seen Super Bowl celebrations with less energy. Come on guys, you took down the biggest pussy in the world — it’s not like you cured polio.

4. Krazy Horse’s backflips and victory lap (begins at the 3:19 mark)

Charles Bennett celebrates victories the same way he lives life — dangerously. After knockin’ out K.J. Noons at EliteXC: Destiny, Horse did a couple of his signature high-altitude backflips then calmly strolled out of the cage as Noons’s team rushed in to tend to him. We’re guessing he had a court appearance to get to.

3. Mark Coleman‘s rope-fall

After winning PRIDE’s 2000 Open-Weight Grand Prix, “The Hammer” started bouncing off the ropes like Macho Man Savage gone retarded. Mark, we weren’t laughing at you — we were sharing in your joy.

2. Jamie Varner‘s chicken-dance, “naptime” pratfall, and worm (begins at the 3:20 mark)

Sheer cartoonish brilliance. I think I saw Bugs Bunny do this once after kissing Elmer Fudd.

1. B.J. Penn consumes Joe Stevenson‘s fluids (11:49-11:51)

Even though Joe Stevenson doesn’t seem like the “high-risk lifestyle” type, there’s still something inherently revolting about licking another person’s blood. But B.J. Penn — who, as we’ve seen before, has no control over his emotions after victories — slurps it down like Vlad Tepes. We wouldn’t want to lick B.J. Penn’s gloves when they’re dry, let alone covered in gore. But then again, we’ve never been huge fans of oral staph…

Hey Ieffable,
Before you go on your next round of retard bashing, please note that while it is plausible to call Cher pre-Madonna, BJ Penn is more of a post Madonna. Or rather "prima dona" which is likely what you thought you were saying. Nice post... winner.

Only douche bag I see now is the assclown above me dropping names as if he knows something about MMA. BJ Penn got a title shot with a LOSING record. He didn't beat anyone to get there. He was dominated by everyone in the welter because he's powered only by the same gas that has you flapping your gums. There's a lot of talent at 155 and Penn is not one of them. He's not even a has-been. He's a "never was".

A bunch of "new to the ufc, jockriding bandwagon jumpers" trying to critique a sport you only watch on tv, have never trained in, but are experts. I have never seen that before, lol.

Your comments only show how little you understand the sport, I am not a Penn fan but trashing the guy without recognising the facts makes you look like a fucking douchebag. And Sapp broke his jaw, he wasn't crying. I have trained with Sapp at AMC Pankration in Kirkland WA and although he lacks any proper technique and is a novelty fighter, he is a tough SOB and did damage to Noguiera in spite of the resulting loss.

The fighters Sherk has beat are not the same caliber as the Penn opponents. Numbers mean you can copy and paste well but your analysis is shit.

You might go back to WWE wrestling, trash talking by the couch potato fans is encouraged there, you can sit back and preach to the choir with all the other fat douchbags next to you.

"i don’t see how so many people are into watching these retards fight each other!

So what's wrong with gay porn?

BJ Penn is not only funny as hell, he's overall the most gifted and talented mixed martial artist we've seen. Anyone who says different is simply uneducated in the science of the sport and plain ignorant. In his defense, he beat Gomi when he was considered the #1 155er, beat Hughes when he was the #1 at 170 in that same year. That in itself is unheard of. Even his losses are excusable: Lost three decisions that could have gone either way( to Pulver in his 3rd fight when he was 21, to Machida who weighed 205 lbs, to Hughes by a torn tenden by his ribcage when he was dominating the fight, and to GSP by split-dec.) This dude fights anybody, any size, anytime. Most of you consider GSP and A.Silva the best in the world, however their losses were less impressionable. BJ's the fuckin truth-deal with it.

Let's see...

BJ Penn's record is 13-4-1

Sean Sherk's record 35-2-1

Roger Huerta's record 22-1-1

Sure makes sense to me that Penn got a title fight. Retards.
crazy horse- March 28, 2008 at 12:24 pm
All of you are retarded! Just shut the hell up and enjoy the fights!
ISWThunder us wrong- March 28, 2008 at 12:01 am
Past successes at welter do not earn you a title shot at LW. That makes no sense at all. The only reason Penn moved down in class is because he couldn't win a title at welter if everyone was murdered by Al queda. The point is that Huerta is the most active fighter in that division AND the most successful. Why was he not fighting for the title?
illy- March 27, 2008 at 11:24 pm
Paul, you're an idiot for that comment. This is as true as fighting can get in a ring. For you to say that a good fighter stays on his feet, this just goes to show that you are not a true fighter.

Kids on the play ground rolling around? If it were as easy as that, i'm sure you could take these guys on... no problem... RIGHT?

If this was a street fight or a life and death situation, these guys would have the necessary skills to win and survive.
Paul- March 27, 2008 at 9:37 pm
I am a former Kickboxing Champion and,I dont like ufc,cage fighting,and mma because a good fighter stays on his feet. Were not kids on the play ground just rolling around.These suppose sports are as bad as dog fighting or cock fighting but yet the boxing commitee ruined kickboxing in Texas.

cro cop did in fact break sapps orbital bone with that punch. noticed the wince on his face, as if his eye socket just got shattered, because it did.
bruce lee- March 27, 2008 at 7:03 pm
Bruce Lee was a real fighter he started his own branch of martial arts. He took the best bits and pieces of the martial arts he learned all the way back from child hood, and put them together. His style and ideas of martial arts is the basis for many fighters, and for Chinese army. I do not think Bruce Lee would be able to pull some fancy kick and jump up in the air and stomp someone like he does in the movies, but I do believe that he would be able to hold his own against many of the fighters. He actually was challenged daily on set of his movies and on the streets because people thought it was just movie hype, and if you catch a biography on discovery channel or other network they have video of him fighting these guys that are not actors after interviews and between movie scenes. its pretty cool

I think if Bruce was around he would probably fight a fight that would look similar to Cung Le. If you have never seen him fight it is amazing to watch someone that has a true martial art skilled background Vs. a MMA background that may only know how to hit well ground and pound escape some chokes and how to perform some chokes.
Cbingham- March 27, 2008 at 4:51 pm
Man after reading some of these comments I can't help but to think some of you are seriously brain dmaged.

Whoever wrote this pile of shit needs to be slapped.....

all these so-called MMA ‘fighters’ are lucky bruce lee isn’t alive cause he’d kick ass in every weight division with all the soft bellied out of shape mooks. just look at the MMA “god” they call fedor, he looks like the pillsbury doughboy. lee would be way to fast and embarass him in less than a minute. MMA is a joke with sloppy ‘fighters’ thinking they’re the best just cause real athletes can’t be bothered with that shit.

Are you kidding me? Bruce Lee never competed, Bruce Lee was a movie star not a fighter. He is just like all those other hyped up, un proven martial artist. So he is quick, so what? His technique is largely show, its ineffective at best. The only opponents Bruce Lee fought were ACTORS! That were letting him pull those flashy and stupid moves. You sir are stupid and know absolutely nothing about ACTUAL fighting. Bruce Lee would not make it out of the first round against ANY MMA fighter.

and to the guy who says
"Again, were it not for America’s addiction to entertainment, here are a bunch of guys that would be taking out my trash and holding up “slow” signs on construction sites. Not impressed"
you should not speak before you know what you are talking about. The sport of MMA is as big, if not bigger, in both Brazil and Japan as well as pretty well represented in England, Russia, and Canada. so its not just "America's addiction to entertainment" as much as it is your jealousy of their athleticism and the ability to use it to make money instead of sitting on their asses in front of a computer screen all day at work like you.
also, many of the fighters in MMA are educated and have degrees and could have menial jobs like you but are able to do something much better until they retire at about 35 years of age....

bj penn is good but he is gonna get twerked by sherk. sherk’s got 2 losses and both came when he was fighting in a higher weight class, he’s going to destroy penn. penn’s only saving grace is that sherk is off steroids and has lost some mass.
"
wanna take bets?
BJ stood with one of the most accurate strikers at 205, even tho sherk has won in his class, who has he beaten? nowhere close, and to say his losses came at higher weight classes, BJ fought both the men that beat Sherk, and the one against GSP could have gone either way it was so close.. Sherk = not impressive
and steroids help you build muscle mass, you dont need to keep taking them to stay big.. you just gotta stay in the gym..
jason- March 27, 2008 at 3:22 pm
"pre-madonna" ?????!!!!!!???? bj penn came before madonna???? really? is that what you meant to say or are you an idiot? why do people use words that they have NO clue the meanings of or how to spell them? especially if they are trying to win a debate, they should at least not look like an uneducated fool. the word you were looking for is PRIMA DONNA. it comes from Italian and was used to designate the leading singers of an opera who were very egotistical and moody. yah, BJ is egotistical, as most fighters are when in the public eye to show confidence, but moody and irritable, eh~ i dont know about that so much.... He has always shown respect to his opponents after the fights in interviews and such and even trains his rival Jens Pulver after they had a war of words on TUF, so i dont see him that way at all! but i guess if you don't know WHAT THE HELL YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT you could see things that way and assume that BJ came before madonna....
