Donald Trump BOOED and JEERED at Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Event in New York City

Donald Trump BOOED and JEERED at Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Event in New York City – VIDEO

After the humiliation of the overwhelming negative response Donald Trump and his minions received at game five of the World Series between the Washington Nationals and Houston Astros last week, Trump needed a PR win to spin that nightmare. So Donald Trump went to the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) in New York City at Madison Square Garden but to his surprise (not ours) was again greeted with jeers and boos from thousand os attendees as he entered the stadium.

Ian Bremmer, a political scientist who founded the Eurasia Group, said: “Honestly surprised to see Trump booed at Ultimate Fighting Championship. This should be his crowd.”

According to the New York Times, Trump has a long relationship with U.F.C., having hosted several matches at the Trump Taj Mahal casino in Atlantic City when the sport was under fire from Congress in the early aughts. That historical support for the sport led U.F.C. president Dana White to tell Fox News “I’m never going to say anything bad about Donald Trump, ever.”

Trump was also greeted with protest outside Madison Square Garden as he arrived to the event.

UFC’s Matt Mitrione Suspended After Calling Trans Fighter “Disgusting freak”.

You may have heard the controversy surrounding the story of Fallon Fox, a male to female transgender Mixed Martial Arts fighter that has been moving up in the ranks of her professional league. There has been much debate on whether Fox should be allowed to participate in the sport as a female because even though her transition is complete, she still has all the physicality and strength of a man biologically.

But has caused even more discord are the foul, unwarranted comments from other so called professionals in the wrestling fighting league such as Hulk Hogan’s garish comments about Fox’s gender. Even more recently are the downright unacceptable comments from Matt Mitrione who has since been suspended for his public tirade. Here’s more:

As USA Today reports, Matt Mitrione referred to Fallon Fox as a “lying, sick, sociopathic, disgusting freak” in a April 8 appearance on “The MMA Hour.”

“She’s not a he. He’s a he,” Mitrione is quoted in media reports as saying. “He’s chromosomally a man. He had a gender change, not a sex change. He’s still a man. He was a man for 31 years. Thirty-one years. That’s a couple years younger than I am. He’s a man.”

Calling Fox “an embarrassment” to fighters and to the sport, he added, “The woman that’s fighting him, props to you. I hope you beat his a**, and I hope he gets blackballed and never fights again, because that’s disgusting and I’m appalled by that.”

Now I am happy to report how fast the UFC responded to Mitrione’s odious comments and delivered quick sanctions and reprimanded him for his ignorant comments:

According to Yahoo! Sports, the UFC quickly denounced Mitrione’s “transphobic” remarks and moved quickly to suspend him.

The organization finds Mr. Mitrione’s comments offensive and wholly unacceptable and — as a direct result of this significant breach of the UFC’s code of conduct –- Mr. Mitrione’s UFC contract has been suspended and the incident is being investigated,” officials wrote in a statement. “The UFC is a friend and ally of the LGBT community, and expects and requires all 450 of its athletes to treat others with dignity and respect.”

Throughout all the verbal insults that Fox has had to endure she appears to be taking it in stride and continuing forward to pursue her dreams. Let’s hope that wherever her path in this sports leads that she is successful.

 

 

This Buds For You! – Budweiser Warns UFC Fighting, Stop The Anti-Gay Slurs Or We Stop Sponsoring You

Anheuser-Busch, the primary sponsor of UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship), and longtime sponsor of the LGBT Community is chastising the popular mixed martial arts league for anti-gay remarks that have been made by some of its fighters.

We’ve communicated to the UFC our displeasure with certain remarks made by some of its fighters, and they have promised to address this. If the incidents continue, we will act,” the brewer said in a statement. A-B, which did not elaborate on potential actions, also stated that it “embraces diversity and does not condone insensitive and derogatory comments rooted in ethnicity, race, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, etc.” The rebuke comes as the UFC is gaining mainstream exposure through support from major advertisers and a long-term TV deal with Fox that includes live prime-time matches. In a statement to Ad Age, UFC said: “With over 425 athletes on our roster, there have unfortunately been instances where a couple athletes have made insensitive or inappropriate comments. We don’t condone this behavior, and in no way is it reflective of the company or its values.”

Well one of those “fighters” also happens to be  UFC President Dana White:  who had been quoted in the past saying to a reporter:  “You don’t even know what the fuck you’re talking about and to write a story that says, `Oh, and here’s a quote from a guy who wanted to remain anonymous because of fear of repercussions from the,’ shut the fuck up! Any fucking guy that won’t put his name on it, first of all, whoever gave you that quote is a pussy and a fucking faggot and a fucking liar and everything else, whoever gave you that quote.”

Other UFC incidents include:

*  An undated video linked on unfitforchildren.org, in which UFC fighter Quinton “Rampage” Jackson urges a Japanese-speaking fan to say: “I’m a fag.”

*  In August, UFC heavyweight Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira was quoted saying that he would not train with gay students. What if the gay person has that malice of having physical contact with me, of staying there grappling?

*  In a video UFC posted on YouTube, Michael Bisping, a UFC middleweight fighter and coach on the reality television show “The Ultimate Fighter,” screamed an anti-gay slurs at his opponent and in another video Bisping said that his opponent on “The Ultimate Fighter” had a “gay chiropractor” on his staff.

Thank you Budweiser for standing up and doing something about UFC and it’s anti-gay ways.

UFC  is nothing but human cock fighting…. and not in a good way.

Liz Caramouche Becomes UFC – Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) First Openly Lesbian Fighter

Liz Carmouche will be the first openly gay fighter to fight under the Zuffa LLC  banner in the Ultimate Fighting Championships -MMA  when she steps into the cage on Friday at Strikeforce Challengers 17. Caramouche is first openly gay fighter to compete for the world’s largest MMA organization.

Caramouche, a former marine left the service after five years because of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”.

“It was really difficult. I wouldn’t say I came out so much as I came into my own. I really discovered what my sexuality meant to me and what that meant to me as a person. I was able to come out to my family, but other than that I couldn’t come out to co-workers or to friends because of what that would mean for my military life and my career. That made my life difficult, because I felt like I was constantly conflicted and at war with myself every day that I faced people.  After having to keep that aspect of my life secret while I was in the military, I realized that it wasn’t the person I wanted to be,” Carmouche said. “I wanted to be open and honest about it and take the risk rather than hiding it.”

In her new life as a pro fighter, and with the support of her team and the UFC behind her, that’s one problem she no longer faces.  Now all she has to worry about is the woman standing across the fighting cage  on fight night.

Carmouche faces a former champion Sarah Kaufman this Friday (Showtime 11 p.m. ET/PT)

Homo Say What? – UFC Fighter and Mr. T Wannabe: Quinton "Rampage" Jackson Responds To Upset Gays: "EVERYBODY LIGHTEN THE FUCK UP!"

Rampage Jackson. The Ultimate Fighting Championship star who plays Mr. T in the new A-Team movie
wants everyone to lay off him because he compared acting to being gay.

“EVERYBODY LIGHTEN THE FUCK UP! LET’S HAVE FUN! THAT’S THE MOST IMPORTANT THING WE CAN DO RIGHT NOW! THERE’S TOO MUCH NEGATIVITY IN THIS WORLD, SO LET’S JUST FOCUS ON THE POSITIVE THINGS AND I GUARANTEE IF WE DO THAT THINGS CAN ONLY GET BETTER!

Jackson goes on to totally try to write himself out of any blame in a rambling post on his blog and comes off even as a BIGGER asshole.

Now I got my life back together from all that doing positive things, trying to be the best role model I can be. Instead of the media congradulating me from this obstical, it chooses to paint a picture of me as a gay basher. Let me teach you a little something about me cause I know y’all don’t really know me. I am a black man from Memphis Tennessee who grew up in the south where I faced discrimination my whole life. I know very well how it feels for someone to judge you for something you have no control over so having gone through that I know how it feels. I took a vow that I didn’t even have to say that I would never discriminate against anybody for anything other that how they treat me or others around them. So not only DO I NOT HATE gay people, I actually accept them for who and what they are. They always seem happy and most of them I met are very kind and nice individuals. Yes, and like most straight guys I joke around with the whole gay thing and I see it as comedy, not saying that’s right or wrong but I don’t do it out of hate. I don’t hate fat girls but I make fun of them too.

I wonder if he makes fun of the handicapped to boot.

When I did that interview I didn’t even know I was being interviewed. I was on the set of shooting the movie the A Team and my friend that worked on the set brought the interviewer to my trailer. As he did so, he made fun of me for a poster that was made of me promoting a UFC event at my homegirls bar in Vancouver. The poster was a picture of me with a rainbow flag on the poster somewhere. This girl has been a friend of mine for 7 years and never used me as a meal ticket and if I would die for one friend it was nothing for me to help a friend promote business. So I offered to help promote her bar not knowing that the poster would make its way back to the set and I would be made fun of for going to a gay bar. But I have to say that I visited her bar several times before this event. Not only did I enjoy myself but I was relieved that the guys at this bar did not hound me once. No one offered to buy me a drink. Not once did anybody try to take pictures with me with their arms all around me or do the what I call the ‘prom date picture’.. taking a picture while holding your lower back.. which is my pet peeve by the way

So, accorfing to Jackson it’s the interviewer’s fault for quoting the words coming out of your mouth. Got it. Meanwhile, how can anyone accuse Jackson of being a homophobe when he lets homosexual men (with no taste) fawn all over him? And besides, everything was taken out of context!

This being said, when I did this interview the interviewer witnessed my friend giving me shit and calling me gay. I was so embarrassed and didn’t want my ego tainted because I’m a big tough fighter. So yes, I got quite defensive and I’m known to be the best shit talker in my business and a fighter in all aspects in life. So I made fun of him back, calling him gay. Only reason why I got a bad report from it was because this guy who was making fun of me and has been my friend on set for about four months (time spent working on the movie) and was gay for real and the reporter being the type of guy he is chose to make THAT his story not knowing that the guy and I were only shit talking like we did everyday. OR DID HE KNOW WE WERE SHIT TALKING OR NOT AND JUST WANTED A HOT SCOOP?

Dude this is REALLY sad.

MASSIVE FAIL!

Homo Say What? – UFC Fighter and Mr. T Wannabe: Quinton "Rampage" Jackson: "Acting is kind of gay."

The following comes from UFC fighter Quinton “Rampage” Jackson, who is playing the role created by Mr. T. in the movie remake of The A Team. The movie was filmed in Vancouver.  And remember.  This comes from a guy who gropes another guy while wearing speedos in front of thousands of people and he thinks acting is a bit too “gay”?

“Acting is kind of gay. It makes you soft. You got all these people combing your hair and putting a coat over your shoulders when you’re cold. I don’t want a coat over my shoulders! I’m a tough-ass [individual]! Vancouver strikes me as a San Francisco-kind of place. And I don’t want [individuals] getting ideas about me. I feel in my heart I’m the toughest [individual] on the planet. And I don’t want nothing changing my train of thought. If you don’t believe that when we step inside the octagon, it shows.”

Quinton. Enjoy your 10 minutes of movie fame. Once this movie flops, and it will, you won’t have to worry about anything. Except maybe what UPS store you’ll be working at.
