Santa may have already come and gone this year but in true Snowden fashion we were able to get a copy of the fat, bearded man’s Naughty & Nice List for 2013 and we’re not going to keep it a secret. A lot happened this year, some of the best fights we’ve ever seen, and a lot of intense drama, crybabies and amateurs who couldn’t make weight.
The MMA Nice List
Ronda Rousey – What’s the matter? Don’t say you’re one of “those people” that think she should be on the naughty list for being a big meanie on TUF? Pick up your hurt feelings, grow a pair, and then remember that everything you see on a reality TV show is carefully edited to tell a story.
Urijah Faber – Faber makes the list nice for being 4-0 in 2013 with bonus points for making an appearance in a Pharrel video. The California Kid has been making a compelling argument for a shot at the belt, but who knows what 2014 has in store?
Chris Weidman – In his entire career thus far, Chris Weidman has been controlled by his opponents for a grand total of 3 seconds. He hasn’t done anything besides dominate, and even against Silva, the train just kept rolling. You can’t help but root for this guy, he’s a likeable champ and he has the potential to be one of the next huge names in MMA now that Silva has been proven beatable and GSP is stepping back. 2014, and really, the end of 2013 will be very interesting for Weidman and UFC fans alike.
MMA Naughty List
Conor McGregor – Calling out everyone when you’re injured is a pretty weak move, but with any of that Irish luck we’ll see if Conor can back it up sooner than later. At least wait until you’re closer to being healthy and able to start booking fights, we haven’t heard much from Conor lately so he’s on our naughty list for prematurely blowing his wad.
Wanderlei Silva – Let’s be real Wandy, that whole stunt with the camera crew was kind of lame. We get it, he’s 4-7 in his last 11 fights and struggling for relevancy before he coaches TUF Brazil. Wanderlei needs to just leave the fight promotion to Chael, because after his loss to Rashad and Wandy’s loss to just about everyone, this has gone from a grudge match to a must-win for either fighter.
Yushin Okami – He got the big cut from the UFC this past year for being a perennial gatekeeper, even though he beat Anderson long before Weidman ever did. How did Okami do it? By getting kicked in the head…
TUF Fatties – Brutal, two episodes in a row where the fighters didn’t make weight during The Ultimate Fighter. You guys are lumped together, like a chunk of coal, and we won’t even give you the FightState Bump by mentioning your names. Do not pass go, do not collect $200, and stop eating so much shit when you have weigh-ins the next day!!
Agree? Disagree? Who did we leave out?
If you disagree with this list, either leave a comment below letting us know why or go get stuffed like a turkey. Did we leave off one of your favorites, or take an undeserved shot at someone on the Naughty List? Let us know what you think so we can tell you why you’re wrong!
