In the spirit of this spooky day, the Ultimate Fighting Championship has released a Halloween-themed “UFC 154: St-Pierre vs. Condit” event poster. The organization also caught up with several of their stuperstars to find out what their favorite Halloween costumes where growing up. UFC welterweight king Georges St-Pierre: “I was usually disguised as a ninja for Halloween because I have been a martial arts fan ever since I was a young age. My favorite part of Halloween is the candy, because I love candy.” UFC interim welterweight champion Carlos Condit: “Halloween is probably my favorite holiday. Ever since I was a kid, I loved to get dressed up in different stuff. I used to celebrate Halloween for three or four days, go to parties and try to string it out as long as I could. “My favorite costume is tough because there have been so many crazy ones. I have been the devil and I liked being a hacked-up zombie with fake blood.” Mark Hominick: “I’m definitely looking forward to Halloween this year with my daughter being able to understand more. I’m excited to go around trick or treating with her. She’s wearing a cow costume and she likes to run around the house in her costume saying ‘MOO.’ “I was always a ninja, boxer or something to do with combat sports for Halloween, so I think it pre-planned what I was going to be one day.” Martin Kampmann: “Coming from Denmark, I’m pretty new to Halloween so I’ve only dressed up a few times. But I think I’d have to say that my full-sized Scooby Doo costume was my overall favorite.” Johny Hendricks: “My favorite costume has to be the one I’ve got planned for this year. I’m going all camouflage for my version of Duck Dynasty. With a beard like mine, it can’t go wrong.” Tom Lawlor: “My favorite costume that I’ve worn for a fight in the UFC is the one that I’ve worn during my wins; that of a capable mixed martial arts fighter. I’m joking of course. My favorite is probably my 80’s workout themed ‘Let’s Get Physical’ entrance, not based entirely on my costume, but rather the fact that my corner men stayed in character while pumping workout bands and curling pink five-pound dumbbells for the entire walk to the Octagon.” “Unfortunately, the UFC fans were not able to enjoy my many Halloween costumes comprised entirely of body paint such as a Ninja Turtle, Power Ranger and polar bear due to dangers associated with paint-on costumes, but I digress. My favorite fight entrance costume I have done thus far was in a regional promotion early in my fighting career. I donned full New Kids on the Block regalia and did the New Kids’ dance to ‘Hangin’ Tough.’ Any time I can emulate my hometown musical heroes is a joyous day in my life.” Brittney Palmer: “My favorite costume ever was last year when I dressed up like Steven Tyler of Aerosmith!” Arianny Celeste: “My favorite Halloween costume of all time was my Zombie Red Riding Hood. I wanted a cool original costume and I came up with the idea to be a sort of ‘Walking Dead’ Red Riding Hood. It was a fun costume and everywhere I went people were freaked out. It was the best Halloween ever (laughs).” What?!?! This isn’t Arianny’s favorite Halloween outfit?:
