[VIDEO] If UFC Fighters Were in The Olympics, They Would Compete In…

Props to the UG for the find and MMAInterviews for this video, which asks several of the fighters from UFC on FOX 4, along with several other MMA stars, what Olympic event they would most likely compete in if they weren’t mixed martial artists. The responses ranged from funny (Joe Lauzon’s desire to try and make people give a shit about speed walking) to optimistic (5′ 8” Jamie Varner’s chances as a high-jumper) to spot-on for their personality (Ryan Bader would “throw rocks” and lift weights, go figure).

And speaking of Olympics, are we the only ones who think water polo is receiving far too much coverage this year? We’re sorry, but whatever asshole took a look at soccer and thought “You know what we should do with this sport? Slow it way, way down, limit the players mobility, and blow a whistle every three seconds” should be shot in the face, then dragged to a nearby park to make it look like a suicide. And yes, we know that person is probably dead already. Just go with it.

Anyway, it is with this inspiring little interview that we ask you taters to fill the blanks in for the following sentence:

If ______ were an Olympian instead of an MMA fighter, he/she would ______.

-J. Jones

Koshcheck would win the gold in the little known sport of poking people in the fucking eye.

Brock Lesnar would be a powerlifter but would not go out and compete because the weights are to scary.

Matt Hamill would be the ringer at the Special Olympics.

If Brock Lesnar were an Olympian he would shit out his defective lower intestine lifting 400kg in the Olympic dead lift.

Emmanuel Yarborough in the pole vault would be fun to watch.
That or Keith Hackney competing in archery, using Joe Son's testicles as the bullseye.
Or Viacheslav Datsik on the parallel bars.

So you're not a fan of seeing guys aimlessly swim back and forth while trying to both play catch and not get furiously kicked in the balls? Different strokes I guess (especially if you get turned on by that sort of thing).
