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

Video: This Is What It Looks Like When Writers Fight

You read all about it yesterday, now watch the video of best-selling author Matt Polly’s first/last MMA bout.  It isn’t the most technically pretty fight you’ll ever see, though the Tuff-N-Uff announcers compare Polly to Fedor Emelianenko and Neo from the Matrix before finally concluding that he’s "one of the fastest fighters" they’ve ever seen in that promotion.  Whitest, maybe.  But fastest?  Still, Polly used his range and killer jab to pick his young opponent apart over two rounds until he quit on his stool, and damned if it doesn’t make us proud to see a fellow nerd kicking a little ass. 

Now go write that book, Polly.  Cage Potato readers want to hear more about the IFL incident.  Don’t let them down.

That was the giggliest muffin top I've ever seen on Polly! Props for fighting tho.

Nice, he won it with a blow to the back of the head. At least Polly was sporting a nice muffin-top.

Jon Hess has never looked better.

Why do I have the feeling that Tim Sylvia took 'roids hoping to look like Matt Polly?

"American Shaolin", by the way, is an awesome book, and Polly deserves credit for doing what 99% of us wouldn't. WAR POLLY!!!!!

For all the dickheads dissin this fight, even though it wasnt the best display of MMA they got big balls to get in there so go fuck yourselves bitches!

Is Matt Polly gonna have to choke a bitch?

If you listen very carefully between the first and second rounds you can hear Randy Couture saying "I gave up a guest spot on Bully Beatdown for this?"

That was terrible but MuyTye is right. Anyone who gets in the ring/cage and fights deserves respect. That's more than most of us keyboard warriors on this site will ever do.
iFight831- August 25, 2009 at 9:25 pm
i cant believe i watched that
MuyTye- August 25, 2009 at 9:06 pm
"Hours, minutes, and days of training."

Respect to anyone willing to get in a ring and fight in front of a crowd though, highlight's at 3:34

I'm sorry.....there was a fight?

Did they ban any sort of muscle tone or definition for this fight?
Andersons Knees- August 25, 2009 at 8:45 pm
they trained for this fight?

That was embarrassing.. props though..

Why are there so many horrible commentators in MMA? Gah, it makes me sick..
4inch4skin- August 25, 2009 at 6:39 pm
Easily the best commentating I have ever heard in MMA.
AkilleeZ- August 25, 2009 at 6:07 pm
Matt Polly vs Anderson Silva anyone? MAKE IT HAPPEN DW!
DAVE2thaBIZZLE- August 25, 2009 at 6:05 pm
Sexton wasn't just telegraphing his punches, he was smoke-signaling them...
GetUpAndKill- August 25, 2009 at 5:36 pm
Honestly, that wasn't even amatuer level fighting...let alone cornered by Extreme Couture and forcing people to watch it.

On the other hand, props for fighting...but i'm sure there were other "worthy" dudes...or chicks, chomping at the bit to fight at a venue like that.
MC Obscene- August 25, 2009 at 4:42 pm
Wow... that was ugly. I was like watching 2 retarded nerds fighting over a capri-sun.
Poo Flinger- August 25, 2009 at 4:28 pm
Is that what it would look like if the Bens fight?
