Throwdown MMA gear contest
(Put on the shoes and hat. Stuff the rest into the gym bag. Tell your wife that you don’t need her anymore. Get in the car. Drive.)

Because you guys brought it so hard in our MMA poster contest and t-shirt design contest, we thought we’d give you another shot to flex your creative muscles. Leading MMA gear supplier Throwdown has hooked us up with a very generous prize package (shown above) that consists of the following…

– an All Over Print Duffle Bag
– a Logo Flexfit Hat
– a pair of On Top Remix Shoes
– a Throwdown Hoodie or Thermal of your choice
– 2 Throwdown by Affliction "T"s of your choice
– 2 Large Throwdown Stickers

Total street value of this prize package: About $250. You want it, and it’s yours if you’re willing to work. Here’s how to win…

A few months ago, a CagePotato reader (whose name we’ve forgotten, unfortunately) CagePotato all-star Soda Popinski sent us this custom desktop wallpaper:

(Click for full-size version.)

We appreciated the "Slightly Badass" piece, and we started wondering what else the Potato Nation could come up with. So, your challenge is to create’s official desktop wallpaper. Some suggestions:

– Please try to incorporate CagePotato’s logo(s), if possible. For your reference, we’ve posted our "devil horns" image below.
– References to any of CP’s various inside jokes will be appreciated.
– The use of ring girls is always appreciated.
– If you really want to get on our good side, you’ll also include a Throwdown logo somewhere.
– For further inspiration, consult Google.

Please e-mail your submissions to by Sunday, August 22nd. Voting on the finalists will begin the next day. The top vote-getter will score the big prize pack, and five runners-up will get CagePotato t-shirts. Please hit up the comments section with any questions you have, and thanks so much to Throwdown for making this possible. Good luck!

@Dick - I had thought of the full body hawk before as well! The trouble is growing the hair on my wang. Although it is small enough that no one would probably notice a small break in the hawk.
BFG- August 7, 2010 at 8:24 pm
i'd love to get that
Dick_Gozenya- August 7, 2010 at 12:31 am

Sorry, this party is currently drinking and intoxicated. Please try to make contact again in 12-16 hours if you require a coherent response. Thank you and good evening.

@ Almost North

Good to see some more forward thinking fashionistas inhabiting the CP. I could tell from your on screen mannerisms that you were...

@ Goat's Boner

Yo dog, if you're manly enough to braid your back hair, by all means corn row that shit up. We could call 'em backrows. If you were really bad ass you could braid your favorite number or like a superhero emblem into your chest and back like that square braid shit the homies get.I'm a bit lacking in the body hair department so I can only help you on the theoretical tip.

If you are really bad ass maybe you could go for the full bodyhawk, you know, split your exterior surface into two distinct hemispheres longitudinally. Nothing says extreme like red liberty spikes coming off your taint.
ghostboner- August 6, 2010 at 9:08 pm
Pshaw. I'm sporting a Hitler 'stache with catfish corners and a perpendicular mohawk. Also I'm braiding my back hair. Or should I mulletize it? the back mullet?

And since my gym was previously a Throwdown affiliate, I have seen enough meathead gear to last for a long time. But since I stand no chance of winning the contest, no worries.
Almost North- August 6, 2010 at 7:33 pm
I'm already working on the dyed-red reverse faux-neckhawk. You got to keep moving to stay a fashionable douchebag.
Dick_Gozenya- August 6, 2010 at 7:27 pm

I haven't had the balls to ghrow one out past a half inch, but that just shows you I need to work on my extreme. Neckchops are tight too, just not quite as brutal as the full-on neckhawk. They can still run with the pack.
knightrida- August 6, 2010 at 7:19 pm
Nobody should be wearing that filth unless they're sponsored by them (aka getting PAID to wear it).

CP, you should be ashamed to be brokering such a trashy prize...
Bob Reilly- August 6, 2010 at 6:44 pm
Seriously. Affliction made those shirts like 3 years ago. Its time to move on. Make something clean and respectable. No one wants to wear that out of the house.
El Famous Burrito- August 6, 2010 at 1:55 pm

I would support the neckhawk.

And also neck mutton-chops.

I fuckin love skull toilet paper!
Dick_Gozenya- August 6, 2010 at 1:39 pm
@ Almost North

Wait till my new tough guy style accoutrement catches on- The Neckhawk. Look out faux-hawks and chin-strap sporting bitches, the unbridled extremeness of the Neckhawk is going to take over the third millennium.
KimboSlice- August 6, 2010 at 1:34 pm
Hopefully me and my good ol buddy paint can at least get runner-up.

I don't even care about the package, I just want a CP shirt.

So basically i'll do my worst to try and not get first, but just good enough to make top 5. Here I go!!!

Throwdown: too many skulls, not enough dragons.
Almost North- August 6, 2010 at 1:03 pm
Would it kill an MMA apparel company to make clothes for people without chin beards and fake diamond stud earrings?
FreeBJs4Dudes- August 6, 2010 at 12:51 pm
Change my name back Mike!
El Famous Burrito- August 6, 2010 at 12:42 pm

It's the one where you post "First!" and you BLEW IT!!!
Soda Popinski- August 6, 2010 at 12:38 pm
That 100% MMA, slightly badass design was from me. Appreciate you guys posting it again. You guys have done plenty for me when it comes to hooking me up (T-shirts, a subscription to Fight magazine, etc) so I aint real worried about getting credit for the design. That and I think I just credited myself. Seriously though, I pimp you guys whenever I can for being super loyal to your fans and caring about your readers. You CP folks are good people. A dying breed these days.
iDestroy- August 6, 2010 at 12:37 pm
My mission is now to win this contest, kill Tact, and plant my winnings on and around his body.
Almost North- August 6, 2010 at 12:36 pm

Its called called "comment of the week"


I'd kick my own ass for wearing this
