View Full Version : My first outing as a cornerman

13-03-2003, 03:34 PM
For you that dont know, i shall be cornering Maccavelli aka Paul McVeigh for his fight at Cagewarriors.

This isnt due to my skill, my commitment or me training him.....
No.. this is due to the fact im the only person he knows there.

This however doesnt mean i wont do my duty.
Not having any cutman type experience, nor actualy gave anyone their water bottle before im going to stick to what i know.

Im going to motivate him the only way i know how.

And good luck in the corner godders, just remember not to throw the towel in by accident. :doh:

I've only ever fought, never cornered. However if there were to be more than one of you in the corner sort out who's going to be talking to your fighter. That's what always happens in our corner, just get the loudest fucker to do the talking.

I was watching UC3 the other night and one of the guys from barra brum (who was fighting paul sutherland) was being told what to do by all of his corner men. It was confusing to me and I wasn't even in the ring being punched.

Oh and godders you need to shout out some random shit to confuse his opponent, like 'beef cruncher' 'double reverse spinning thumb up bum'.

Im quite confident in my puppy ploy.

13-03-2003, 04:21 PM
Kill the hairy piece of shit, :woo

Ross do you or kerr no anything about dealing with cuts?

Ill get godders to do the talking as i wont be able to hear anyone else really, it called the cocktail party effect i think

13-03-2003, 04:23 PM
New ploy..

If you dont win, the puppy lives and you have to look after it and let it shit your carpet.

You win and in the blender it goes.

13-03-2003, 04:24 PM
Ok but i get to press the button :evil: :axe

13-03-2003, 04:25 PM
Yes, yes you do :cool:

I just put a bit of vaseline around the eyes beforehand but it depends it the rules allow it. Other than that ask a thai boxer what they do for them.

13-03-2003, 04:36 PM
I dont think we really need to worry about Paul too much.

Hes the grand funkin master killing machine.

13-03-2003, 04:44 PM
Just to give you a little taster paul, i made this :p

13-03-2003, 05:03 PM
i will clean it and newskin it, dont get cut

14-03-2003, 12:40 PM
"dont get cut"

Thats the plan but shit happens, i dont want to be unprepared

14-03-2003, 12:53 PM
Doesnt the puppy look cute in the blender

14-03-2003, 02:03 PM

very good article mate. very good

17-03-2003, 09:46 PM
hope you paul are happy with the job i did

19-03-2003, 11:17 AM
The combination of using puppies and good cornermen, obvious worked. Nice one Paul

19-03-2003, 02:14 PM
Ross and my unofficial cornerman Karl helped so much,

Could only hear Chris say "punch im in the ed like mate" and godders almost knocked me out with a water bottle.

I had the biggest group of internet celebrities ever assembled in one corner if only i had gotten Droc and Dougie too

"I had the biggest group of internet celebrities ever assembled in one corner"

Nah I think you are mistaken young Paul. That was achieved in your last fight, you had Me, Ross, Billy and of course Dexter. Your cornermen for cagewarriors was impressive, but that first group is just like Kellogs cornflakes. The original, and still the best :D

These are some of the things I remember shouting:

"Paul break the fucking arm!!!!"
"Keep the position - don't fuck about!"
"Elbow him in the nose and teeth!"
"Knees, knees!!"
"If you have armbarred him once you can armbar him again!"
"Smash his face in!"
"Take him down and keep him on his back!!"
"Break his nose!!!"

21-03-2003, 12:10 PM
Haa Haa, sounds like you were really helpful chris ;)

And when I cornered Gav I remember yelling:

"Grind your elbow into his teeth and knock them out!"
"Grind your elbow into his nose and break it!"
"Break his fucking arm Gav!!"
"Don't fanny about with his legs, armbar him!"
