Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Videos: The Top Five Worst MMA Ideas

Sometimes in mixed martial arts, ideas to improve or add to the sport are born, that, although they may seem like great notions at the time, often aren’t. Even the creators of the world’s most popular MMA promotion have had their flops. We’re just glad there were people there to film them.

Here are the CagePotato Top Five Worst MMA Ideas:

#5 - EliteXC: Kimbo Slice vs. Seth Petruzelli

Sure Kimbo may have made it to the UFC in spite of this fight, but besides a recurring night-sweat inducing nightmare for Gary Shaw EliteXc is just a punchline in MMA history.

More vids after the jump.

#4 - UFC Co-Founder Bob Meyrowitz’s Yamma Pitfighting

MMA in a bowl featuring some mediocre, some washed up and some unknown fighters trying not to sprain their ankles in a cage designed to prevent stalling against the fence. I can’t understand how this didn’t last.

#3 UFC Co-Founder Art Davies’ XARM

XARM Greatest Hits by zugsdad

This MMA-arm wrestling hybrid reminds me of something rednecks would create to give them something to do when they’re drunk that would inevitably end up on youtube. Do they test these fighters for alcohol?

#2 - San Do Three-Man Fighting

How does this even get sanctioned? Two against one fighting seems about as far away from the honorable guise of martial arts as you can get, except maybe groin punches.

#1 - Former UFC Champion Dating and Having Children With Former Pornstar

Jennito? Seriously. Did anyone give these two Rhodes Scholars a chance?

"I can assure you aren't even as smart as our dumbest fucking poster on here."

I'm smarter than you redinjun.

I put my parts in your mom, she didn't give me herpes, I gave her mine. I got mine from Jenna.

Such anger typical of people not taking the sport seriously. Again I implore you to read my article on new fans:

IT's not the sport we aren't taking serious, and us blasting your stupid ass has NOTHING to do with the sport. It's you we are not taking serious, are you mental? Do you not get it?
The man who owns this site told you to fuck off, don't you get it, you are NOT welcome. Wht will it take? Your being banned? Cause I am hoping for that right now. Maybe if your dumbass gets banned it will sink in. So I implore you as well... to FUCK OFF!
Fuck you, and your stupid articles.

"It has 27 recs, positive comments from the staff and the intelligent MMA fans like kyfm621, hlebtasic, ufc4 and Robert Downey Sr. just to name a few."

How is it that you can't comprehend how horribly pathetic you sound when you say shit like that? Talk about getting "angry" at commenters? LOL!

@ Littleredcunt FUCK OFF

Not to mention for those accusing me of being so serious, a poster made a funny avatar of me and now I'm using it:
fatbellyfrank- April 29, 2010 at 3:09 am
Holy fucken shit, this littleredfuckbag dude is unbelievable, i also thought it was just a troll, but apparently he takes himself seriously, and gets irrationally angry at other posters? what does he do then, rain down pitty pat punches onto his keyboard?
Where the fuck do retart like this come from?
ghostboner- April 28, 2010 at 11:55 pm
@drano - Oh shit that pre-historic rant was hilarious. Ha ha i just read it again! That is funny shit there fella.
Mr_Misanthropy- April 28, 2010 at 11:05 pm
Wait a minute, wait a minute, are you guys trying to tell me this wasn't all a joke all along? I'm so confused. I thought it was the most well written subversively witty trollling of all time. I thought it was some lean polished satire, really top-shelf technique honed against the grindstone to a fine sharp edge. I was literally laughing at every sentence.

This whole situation seems to be eluding to a level of douche-buggery of whose existence I was previously unaware. I had heard rumors of the darkest corners of the internets, but I thought they were only that- rumors. Please tell me its all a joke, I'm getting frightened!

65 million years ago ( give or take a year or so) thisredengine was known as douchesaurus Rex.
full of shit.
roars to goddamn much.
and nothing on earth liked him...not even his own kind.
small brain... small arms... small penis.
Good to know that eons and evolution hasn't changed you much
little engine that COULDN'T.

Not to mention: thisredengine has nothing on Luke Thomas. Smart guy, for sure, but I've never seen some dude so arrogant for someone who's pretty much just a blogger. I dunno if it's the creatine or he wasn't loved as a child, but man. When he isn't whining about the UFC's media credential policy (Surprise, surprise, his site doesn't have them), he's treating his readers like dirt. Here's a typical conversation with the guy if you say something he doesn't agree with:

Luke: You're wrong.
BE poster: Can you give a little more.
Luke: It was a stupid comment.
BE poster: Why is my view any less correct than [Insert staffer or reporter name]?
Luke: Because he's a respected journalist.
thisredengine and the staffers: Yup.
BE poster: Luke, all I want is a counter argument so we continue the discussion.
Luke: ...
Mike Milbury- April 28, 2010 at 6:29 pm
I've read thisredengine's stuff on BE. He usually seems like an okay person actually, I don't know who pissed in his cornflakes today. He isn't a staffer at all. He just swings off their nuts. Anytime they have a comment, he jumps in with one. That and he has moments of getting on the high horse. For god knows what reason, it's the fucking internet. You should have seen him in the huge Tito/Jenna story..."I take this topic fucking seriously. Hey staff, I'm flagging anyone who makes a joke. Doing my part because they do such a good job, the smart people are cool, yada, yada, yada"
SuckMyShinya- April 28, 2010 at 5:54 pm
@ thisredengine

I dare you to lose me in ANY MMA related topic!!! Just cuz I know alot about MMA (as *most* the people here at CP) I dont go around acting like my shit dont stink and come across like a total douche!!
dranokills- April 28, 2010 at 4:45 pm
oh and BTW thisredengine all I have seen from you is backhanded remarks about how you are smarter than all of us, and I haven't seen anything from you other than a big mouth. I can assure you aren't even as smart as our dumbest fucking poster on here.
I think you should do as you were asked and fuck off like a good boy. you are most likely an asshole kid in college with a book full of to many big words, the reason you take this so serious is cause of your amazingly small cock and balls, and the fact that women frighten you.
As The great Colin Cowherd says: " thats 'a YOU problem buddy!"

@ thisredengine

"as you can see, I'm well-regarded and pretty much an unofficial staffer there. They like me.So people know me and the pride I have over being one of the cool kids in the MMA community."

*Nobody* likes you. Fuck off and go back to bloodyelbow, you weirdo.

- the management
dude your So fucking popular that the management... the BEN himself told you to fuck off, that is the ultimate FUCK OFF. I have nothing else to add to that I just wanted to point out how bad you are now hated.

@dranokills... let me be the first to say "thanks" for being the first to say fuck off to the BE stiff. We gotta band together against other evil forces of the bloodyelbow's of the world.

But there is something else I have been wanting to mention: robthom is a great guy, funny dude, and he knows his shit. I can see that you like to instigate it but I really think it's not necessary. I can't honestly think if when this little battle started, but homie, in all seriousness, let's not infight. Agree to disagree and move forward?

Potato Nation needs to band together in these times... knowwhatimean?
sigh, OK for YOU I stop, and for the other cool ones, but seriously he was the one who pulled the first assholism I JUST retaliated in kind.....but Ok I'm done, no more baiting.
But we can still jack this self important bloddyelbow turd who takes his MMA to serious and needs his head put on a stick right? hes fair game...even though BEN tore him a new ass......
noizy- April 28, 2010 at 4:17 pm
Was XARM designed by people who thought "hmmm I don't like when these people go to the ground or clinch on the cage. How can we ensure they just keep hitting each other. Let's tie em up"
Mr_Misanthropy- April 28, 2010 at 2:01 pm
I like thisredengine, he seems like a swell guy, but this of whence ye all speak frightens me. It sounds like it is staffed by feminists and green peace activists, and it all sounds very un-American to me. Save the pacifism for the bedroom fellas!

**the post ghost strikes again***

@ Mike Russell:

You sure that's a good idea? You must not have read Brent Brookhouse's article about you. Let's just say, it must have been his time of the month...

*fires off an email to thisredengine's boss to ensure bloodyelbow has something original to write about today* 
cecils_pupils- April 28, 2010 at 1:06 pm
@thisredengine i'm glad you stopped by because, yes, most of us have plenty of intelligent things to say - but most of us are also capable of taking a joke man... ya know... HAHA! I hope that you take the time to laugh once in awhile, because to get all worked-up over some MMA poster's dribble is lame - ya gotta laugh that stuff off man.

The reality is that each site has it's own culture: CP likes the funny and Ben encourages it, while Luke and those at bloddyelbow keep it so serious that people can't get a laugh. Fine.

Why can't both exist? News flash: these two worlds exist just fine separately. Occasionally we intermingle, but when I'm on bloddyelbow I keep it a little more serious since that's how it is. Here on CP, you gotta lighten it up son!! If you can't laugh at things in life, and make fun of it, then what the hell are ya livin' for?

Enough with my rant thisredengine, we here at CP just want you to know that when you are here you gotta lighten up... capiche?
Robocop Didnt Tap- April 28, 2010 at 12:33 pm
CP posts = Cesar Gracie jiu jitsu
BE poster = Mayhem Miller

Pretty good comparison imo
thisredengine- April 28, 2010 at 12:31 pm
@ReX13: I don't mind Ben took the time to interact with me. I consider him to be equal to the great Luke Thomas of BE and the MMA Nation radio show. We three are a lot alike, except Luke and I are a lot more intolerant to others because we ARE a level above most in MMA conversations. Not to say Ben isn't, but he seems too lenient and respectful to the masses.

As for the rest of you, I still ignore you because you may be writing something intelligent or you may be writing something that upsets me. Note that I got many people banned from BE due to the classless jokes in the Tito/Jenna stories and I made sure everyone knew my thoughts on the matter. So I'm not just a random poster. i make things happen.
