It may seem like fund and games, but in reality it makes MMA look like a ladies' tea.
Note the second and third dogs from the left, obviously teammates. Instead of sprinting down the track, they are conspiring to mug the dewey-eyed weiner dog in the No. 1 slot. Meanwhile, on the far right, another competitor begins digging for the pistol he buried before the race, ready to take down anyone who is ahead of him as the finish line nears.
Obviously muddled by the performance-enhancing drugs coursing through their veins, four trainers fail miserably at doing the "YMCA" dance.
