Hi everyone - this one is more of a request for amusing anecdotes than an actual fan posts.
I joined Bloody Elbow about a week ago now and my main inspiration to do so came from the comments section of the article announcing Rampage v Tito at the Bellator PPV. That comments section was the funniest collection of tangents, silly pics and gifs and amusing anecdotes I'd read on an MMA site to date.
there was mention of a few events I'd heard of (such as Tito v Lee Murray street fight and Timmah shitting his pants during a fight) and mention of others I wasn't aware of (a back alley brawl involving Chuck and others) and that got me wondering - what urban legends or road stories are out there that I haven't heard of yet?
I remembered a thread from a long time ago (I was a big wrestling fan in the late 90s/early 00s) that did a similar thing on pro wrestling urban legends - the thread took on a life of its own and had really insane and possibly true stories.
now I wouldn't expect an MMA thread to weave as rich a tapestry of strange and bizarre anecdotes as a lot of the fighters have to live relatively clean and there's not that 'life on the road in the carnival' element, but I'd bet there are still some really funny stories to be told with such a wide array of reckless individuals to draw inspiration from, especially from the old Pride/pre Zuffa days!
Anyway - over to you, esteemed Bloody Elbow commenters - I expect chuckles with a few guffaws sprinkled on.
