Ludvig Borga Hasbro action figure

Before we get to the submitted video, I just want to mention that I think it’s hilarious that they gave Ludvig Borga a Hasbro action figure.

I just love that someone in WWE thought he was going to be so popular that every kid would want his figure.

Also, why did they make his hands so freakishly big?!

Anyway, Crapper Paul S. writes:

So in 1997 Tony Halme (formerly Ludvig Borga) decided to try his hand at mixed martial arts. His opponent was a guy by the name of Randy Couture who was making his UFC debut.

Needless to say this didn’t go well for our favorite evil Finnish environmentalist.

I guess when it comes to MMA he just couldn’t Finnish what he started.

    So are you saying I was the only kid that bought a Ludvig Borga figure? Next thing you’ll be se saying no one wanted the New Foundation Jim Neidhart figure either.

      To this day you can probably find 3 New Foundation Jim Neidhart figures in the toy dept at any given small town hardware store. And, if you blow off the thick layer of dust on it, you can probably also find a Tom Zenk WCW one

    That fight should have been rated J, for Jobber. Tony looked like he was living from welfare check to welfare check.

  3. ScroogeMcSuck says:

    Definitely one of the oddest decisions of the Hasbro library, but still better than Skinner.

  4. Sean Bateman says:

    Couture Finnished him.

  5. Scrooge McSuck says:

    Forgot to mention this earlier, but check out that creativity… FINLAND FINISHER.

  6. Paul Kersey says:

    The highlight of the fight video is the huge ass on the ring girl at 0:21. Yowza.

  7. AK says:

    Couture may be a UFC Hall of Famer and one of the greatest MMA fighters of all time but did he put an end to Tatanka’s undefeated streak? I don’t think so.

    Borga (RIP): 1
    Couture: 0

    Couture to me is like the Ric Flair of MMA: He has the most championship wins but also the most championship losses. Plus he was awful in the Scorpion King 2.

      And ended that streak with one finger. It crushed Tatanka and he found solace in food. He was going through his paychecks so fast that he had to join the Million Dollar Corporation to have enough money to sustain his increasing appetite and waist line. Tragic really.
