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

Video: Knowing About UFC 141 is Half the Battle


(Video courtesy of YouTube/FreeFightsForYou)

Besides Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal, everyone I know who watched GI Joe as a kid looked forward to the “Knowing is Half the Battle” segments that taught us how to escape a house fire, avoid being kidnapped and molested and how to camp safely. If you watched the show on Saturday mornings or have seen any of the scores of parodies that have popped up the past few years, you’re going to enjoy the short fan-made spot above.

“Mo” used to enjoy the popular PSAs until the day he found out they were all a lie.

When he was a kid in Tennessee, Lawal watched the episode where a boy who couldn’t swim was instructed by Torpedo how to tread water and make his way safely to shore after he fell off of a cliff into the water. The cartoon made it look easy, so Lawal jumped in the water the next time he was at his cousin’s house and promptly sunk to the bottom of the pool. Had his uncle not seen him go in, he likely would have drowned. He told me last year that Torpedo was a liar and that GI Joe nearly killed him and that soon after the incident turned to Heathcliffe for life advice and credits the mangy cat for influencing his scrappy fighting style.

And that’s your six degrees of separation lesson for the day of how GI Joe is directly related to MMA.

    If you guys don't extinguish Xeno's bullshit before it spreads, he's gonna spell the end of Tater Nation as we know it. He's a troll of epic proportions who needs to be stopped before he accomplishes his goal of destroying CP! Join me and we shall defeat his 5 foot shit, fake Napolean ass. . AND KNOWING... IS HALF THE BATTLE

    @El Guapo . You have climbed a tree and ventured out onto that limb. Let us hope it doesn't break like Nog's did, as you might find its you who is in icy water, sinking, and needs me to pull you out. GO JOE~ http://www.mmatorch.com/artman2/publish/UFC_2/article_11857.shtml

    @ what El Guapo Says: . Classic. "...and knowing is half the battle!" . @ what Xena Says: . In the US there are only 8 states that you can be hiding in. They are: . - California - Georgia - Illinois - New York (El Guapo already denied he his not from 22 Broad Street Haverstraw New York) - Oklahoma - Oregon - Texas - Utah - Wisconsin . Help us locate you, Joe` Guapo. Just share the your located in, and I bet you some "coin" that I can pin the tail - on the donkey in less than 3 shots. . "Go ahead, make my day punk" - 1971, "Dirty" Harry Callahan

    Couple of things, Shorty. One, this ain't Twitter, so you can lose the @. Two, since you prefer Xena, I'll call you Zena. . Also, be a sweetheart and tell everybody one of your "true" stories, this time about how GI Joe was actually created after your life story so we can have a good chuckle.

    King Mo forgot to watch the 'knowing is half the battle' segment where Roadblock is NEVER able to swim, no matter how hard he tries.

    haha @ Joe Guapo . I see this is the third time in as many days that you mention Napoleon and short people. Whee you picked on in school by a little beat down bully? . Sorry to steal your thunder, but if you feel better you can call me Princess Warrior Zena if that works for you. Fact is you are easy to punk, and you squeal just like a lil pig. Much like in the movie Deliverance that seemed to upset you so much when mentioned before. . Did a Faber clone beat you up, bully you, and take a run at your Chocolate Starfish when you were young defenseless and in your early teens? . Uhmm...are you by any chance a Catholic...no, of course not. You couldn't be. Only a Jew uses the term "Shtick" when posting anonymously. . Call me a douche or a bitch if you like, but at least I tell the truth when asked. Why don't you tell us about yourself...and be honest. All eyes are on you G.I. Joe Guapo. . Thanks for the pre-New Years Laugh! (CHUCKLE)
  10. El Guapo Says:

    Tue, 12/27/11 - 04:07


    You must have me confused with the many(MANY, many)others here who have called you a bitch or douche, as I've never addressed you as either. Bullshitter, yes. Lying bastard, ohhh yeeaaah. Bitch/douche, no. . BTW... You never did mention your height, Sparkplug.

    @G.I. Joe El Wuapo . Matters not what you call me, remember the old adage about sticks and stones? As for the haters...their fine. The problem with them here is that they are mostly just a few people using different aliases. And that is for pussies. Ring a bell Mr. Shtick. . Point is you know who your talking too...I posted my resume after getting called out, and yet you want to deny it backed up most of whatever I said on this site about me over the prior months. Your the only one who is in denial. That's on you alone hommie. . No, I am not 4'11" or 5'2" bro. You must be thinking of Carmen Valentina...and I am not a split tail who makes homemade videos about a Canadian who is is afraid of heights. So you and your spark plug are all fucked up...but keep it up its a cute attempt and makes you sound tough.
  13. El Guapo Says:

    Tue, 12/27/11 - 05:47


    Yeah, yeah, yeah, Mr. Secretary of Defense. It's amazing how you manage to post so often while defending the U.S. from tyranny, Mr. Gates. Keep up the good work.

    Not to mention the fact that he regularly misuses commas, periods, and your/you're. Didn't he claim he was a lawyer or something too? A lawyer that can't write a blog comment without needing an 8th grade English teacher to review his work...
  15. ArmFarmer Says:

    Tue, 12/27/11 - 06:12


    At least TUF Guy and CAPSLOCKHAL were tolerable and sometimes, dare i say, amusing. How does a site go downhill so bad that even the quality of trolls suffers... xeno is ushering in a new era of suck for the potato nation.
  16. RwilsonR Says:

    Tue, 12/27/11 - 07:25


    @ ArmFarmer - I don't think he outright said he is a lawyer. He just heavily inferred, then called called everyone stupid for making assumptions from his strong inference. His conspiracies were mildly entertaining the first couple of times. Now he has worn out his welcome, but thinks he would be "giving up" or "losing" if he just tucked tail and left us alone now. I unfortunately think he is different than our other trolls in that he doesn't lose interest.

    Xeno, don't go anywhere. This site is only nice for the banter in the comments. . Your off-color, racist, provocative, über-bragging posts and the Inspired Replies they elicit would be missed by many in our little C-Spud shell. . Personally I think you did much of what you brag about (good for you), though we all exaggerate our exploits a little bit. Mustn't let the truth get in the way of a good story, right? . (Hey! I'm allowed my opinion!)
  19. XENOPHON Says:

    Wed, 12/28/11 - 08:37


    @BryanF . Yes, I agree. There are 3 of them right ahead of you. Although if they think there is a new suck around here, I got a pipe they can practice on...
