5 MMA Game Plans That Failed Miserably
Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Every fighter comes into a fight with a game plan to take advantage of their opponent's weakness. Well, almost everyone.

There are a few times when guys go into a fight and, to quote a popular phrase, "wet the bed." These game plans are absolutely terrible from start to finish and usually result in something unpleasant for the unfortunate ones.

Most recently Alistair Overeem's strategy against Antonio Silva and Anderson Silva's "act" at UFC 162 are fresh in everyone's minds.. These are just a few examples of some MMA game plans that either failed in hilarious fashion (or miserable depending on your stance) for the fighters involved.

I'll try to keep these examples as recent as possible so everyone can joggle their short-term memory and envision how badly these game plans went.

Coaches are supposed to have their fighters prepared with a plan A, plan B, and a plan C. But what happens when all three either don't work or completely backfire? Well you get to make a list like this of course!
