Anyone who has been coming to Five Ounces of Pain for more than a few days understands our community boasts some of the best readers on the MMA landscape. While some sites settle for online trolls and uninformed debate, our crew of loyal followers fill the bottom part of our pages up with interesting ideas, well-thought out points, and of course the occasional laugh.

In that latter spirit, we’ve been running a daily piece featuring a picture pulled from our catalog of USA Today images for our creative faithful to have some fun with by offering up an insightful or downright hilarious caption in the Comments section. As promised, with it being Sunday, the best ones have been pulled for one final retrospective. Enjoy, and make sure to chip in next week to have your own handiwork potentially shown!
