Okay, I screwed up and forgot to do this last week, but as Mike Goldberg would probably say, "An elephant never forgets lightning strikes twice".
First of all, let's get to last game's winner, as voted on by you the Bloody Elbow reader. EliotMatheny is your winner with a comfortable 34% of the five-option vote with this caption of Brandan Schaub's KO loss against Ben Rothwell:
"Figaro Figaro Figaro Figaro Figaro FI-GA-RO!!!"
Here's how you play, I post an MMA-related photo and you make a funny caption. There are only three basic restrictions:
1.) No GIF editing or PhotoShops. They aren't captions, they don't count.
2.) Nothing too sexually graphic, although honestly if that's your entry then I suggest you go back to the porn you're watching on the other tab.
3.) No racist, homophobic, or sexist slurs. This disqualifies Dana White from ever winning.
Everything else goes. Movie/TV references, music lyrics, Goldbergisms, you name it. Post as many captions as you please.
Rec the funniest comments and the top 5 in rec totals go into the final poll. The deadline is 10 PM ET. Afterwards the poll goes up and you vote from there. Results are posted the following week.
This week's photo is the infamous Anderson Silva vs. Chael Sonnen staredown from two years ago, with a rematch nearing in about two months.
Good luck mutherfukers.
