To boldly go where no man's gone before- Mass Sig Bet on Kaufman/ Rousey

It all started on a warm May afternoon; a seemingly innocuous post chronicling Rhonda Rousey and Sarah Kaufman's internet feud (aka 'Tweef') appeared on the Bloody Elbow front page. AND THEN ALL HELL BROKE LOOSE.

First, resident STD laden, outdated music genre exponent DiscoAndHerpes seemed pretty cocksure that Rousey would armbar Kaufman in the 1'st round of their upcoming 135 lb title fight...

I'm going to go out on a limb here

But Rousey by first round armbar.

until he was told to put up or shut up, in which case he turned tail and ran for the woods.

Put your money where your mouth is brah!

I officially sig + AV bet you that Kaufman does NOT lose by 1’st round armbar.

I should, but I won't

I reserve the right to be wrong in such an unpredictable sport, even if I’m 99% sure she is going to lose.

I'm totally chickening out like a little baby

Then the ever popular, ever delusional Memitim decided to man up and step in on this bet.

I’m your huckleberry.

Ahhh yeah!

Just so you fully understand- you have to change your Sig & AV to my choosing if there is any other outcome in that fight than Rousey via 1’st round Armbar.

Do you accept?

I will bet the sig...

So, you would think this settled matters. Memitim would be sporting a hilarious, witty, and embarrassing signature for a set period of time after Kaufman DOESN'T get armbarred by Rousey in the 1'st round. But then D&H had a change of heart, and wanted back in... others in the thread also expressed interest in getting in on this sig bet.

And so now, I propose that the extremely advanced and forward thinking hive mind that is the BE community should break down barriers, and institute the first and only ever mass signature bet ever in the history of mankind (at least that I'm aware of without doing a cursory google search).

All those of ye looking to get in on this hot action, post in the comments in bold letters whether you are going for Option A) Rousey via 1'st round armbar, or Option B) NOT Rousey by 1'st round armbar.

Choose wisely, and may the odds ever be in your favor, and as always-


So far, those who picked Rousey via 1'st round armbar (Option A) are: gzl5000, discoandherpes, Paulo Filho's Psychiatrist, Snatchl, FrostyNiks, sklart, thirdparty, OleksiyPecherovsHomeboy, Sugel Mendoza, menckenstein, Getting some Bas, the guy with the big nose, Marcu$, Josh Hall, Cindjor, RobtWeaver

Those who picked option B- every other possile outcome of that fight- are: Me, Robert Cowan, POW, sun yue, IRodC

Plus, whoever adds their name to the list in the near future. Now, each team has to propose for a sig and AV for the opposing team to shamefully adorn for a month. IRodC has ingeniously suggested team A should sport this eyesore, in the event that Rousey/ Kaufman doesn't end in a 1st round armbar win for Rhonda:


Are all members of team B in agreement that this is the best AV? And we will also need an embarrassing sig for them to sport.. something along the lines of stating how hard they marked out for Rousey's fanboy appeal, how much less attractive/ intelligent they are than us, etc.

Team A- pick your worst, come to a consensus, and I will post it. IT'S GO TIME
