Another Dethrone contest in the same month. That's what happens when UFC responds to your addiction to MMA by throwing together a card every weekend this August. It's a mid-summer night's dream -- and it's strange because it's actually mid-summer. Alright so it's a little bit later than mid-summer, but Shakespeare never wrote a 'late-summer night's dream' so it doesn't work in this context.
UFC 164 goes down August 31st and Ben Henderson will be defending his title in a rematch against Showtime Pettis which will be held at the BMO Harris Bradley CenterCity in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The location is important if you want to nail the grand prize of this Dethrone contest. If you're nowhere near that location, don't worry, we're still giving away prizes you will covet.
Behold, our 'Invent a Bendo Conspiracy Theory' contest. Yes, Dethrone (the same company that made his Illuminati shirt) and MiddleEasy knows that you all believe Ben Henderson is a member of the Illuminati and after each fight he signals to his hyper-dimensional reptilian rulers through hand gestures. Look, we're not saying that this isn't true -- but we want you to create your very own Ben Henderson conspiracy theory.
Say his tattoo wings on his back are actually grafted cybernetic implants or his toothpick is actually a communication device by the Anunnaki. Write whatever, just make it clever enough that everyone stops what they're doing and take notice.
As always, abide by the two rules of MiddleEasy: Don't be racist or homophobic. It's a shame that it's 2013 and we still have to tell some of you how not to be a douche -- but we do.
Grand Prize (1):
One lucky winner will receive two floor seats to UFC 164.
One Dethrone UFC 164 Ben Henderson walk-out shirt, signed by the man himself.
Social Media Winners (3):
One Dethrone shirt!
We understand that some of you aren't that creative. Look, it's cool -- we still love you. So we've opened up a way to still grab one of these fabulous Dethrone prizes. It's called being a 'Social Media Winner' and all you have to do is:
1.) Like Dethrone's Facebook page
2.) Follow them on Twitter @Dethrone
3.) Write a message in the comment section with your Facebook and Twitter page so we can verify it.
Feel free to enter as many times as you like. This contest is only open to residents of North America, but if you're from another country, we still love you. A winner will be selected on August 29th. The USD amount of each prize has not been determined, but I can assure you will not be disappointed. All entries are the property of MiddleEasy, where we will print them all out and build a giant paper airplane. If you win the contest but are not eligible to receive your prize, you will receive a slap on the wrist and your award will be handed up to the another contestant.

Update: Contest is over! Look at the results here!
Zeus is represented by Galactus in his avatar image because he has an immature obsession with Marvel when they went all sci-fi back in the mid 80s. I'm the creator of MiddleEasy and Nickelodeon's The Adventures of Pete and Pete. Just kidding about the Nickelodeon stuff, but that would be really cool.
