Congratulations to this years Fight Gone Bad winners.

For their accomplishment, Austin and Laurie each won an individually numbered Award Series garment and custom Firebreather Dog-Tag.
Fight Gone Bad earned it's name from legendary Ultimate Fighting Champion BJ Penn in the early days of CrossFit in Santa Cruz, California. Coach Glassman devised a workout, at the time unnamed, that would exceed the metabolic demand of an Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) match. After putting BJ through the workout, Coach asked him how it felt. BJ exclaimed, "Like a Fight Gone Bad!" The name stuck, and the rest is history.
