GIF Overload: The Fails

After a week's hiatus, Zombie Prophet and I return with a completely different side of MMA. With The Knock Outs and The Submissions we should you some the beautiful finishing moments mixed martial arts can produce. Today, we're showing the darker side of the sport. Sometimes, fighter's think they have a great idea or a great strategy and it completely backfires. That's what we're calling the MMA Fails.

  • Projectile vomit is not an appropriate celebration
  • Heath Herring isn't homophobic, but dudes shouldn't kiss him either
  • Kim Couture is bad at MMA but that ref is worse
  • A double barrel roll is always a legitimate defense

This is one of my favorite GIF collections so far, if only for pure hilarity. Hit the jump for all the awkward moments in MMA.

Now you know what to do if a Hefty bag ever jogs at you.
