How Bad Ass Would It Be If The Austin 3:16 Promo Happened In The UFC Instead Of The WWF?

    Imagine after whopping someone and finishing them, someone with Austin's charisma and personality (or just Austin himself in an alternate universe where he was an MMA fighter instead of a wrassler) cut this promo in the post-fight interview on the poor slob they just beat. Might have been the greatest post-fight interview ever, especially if it created the same hot selling merchandise and springboard to super stardom as it did for Austin in the WWF.

    Not as badass as getting your salad tossed while drinking a blue slurpee, but I know what you mean.

    Maybe become an internet meme like "teh Chris" or something, but not a serious national thing. No way.

    There is no MMA fighter ever who can fuck with a great pro wrestler on the mic.

    Can you imagine how badly The Rock or Ric Flair would bury McGregor? LMFAO.

    Imagine if Stone Cold had to wear reebok fight kit. Start to wonder if the Austin 3:16 think would have worked for him if he had to wear the goofy ass reebok kit.

    If a WWE-esque clown like McGregor can become as popular as he did and have people quoting his generic insults, it's not so far fetched to think this could take off.

    Nothing Conor has said has become a national catchphrase. Or even anything more than memes among MMA hardcores.

    Conor is bigger financially than Austin, but he could never make a catchphrase as popular as Austin 3:16 or "can you smell...".

    It would be pretty gay actually..

    Why not have have a story line where Kelvin was afraid to fight Anderson so he tainted his dick pills so he would get flagged. Or have a fighters corner men distract the ref so their fighter could throw sand into their opponents eyes and get the ko when the ref pays attention to the fight again.


    Keep that shit seperate.. then again MMA has Conor so it is not super far off now a days unfortunately
