You can add Bernard Hopkins to the growing list of MMA haters. The brash boxer recently compared the sport of mixed martial arts to “gay porno,” and expressed how dumbfounded he is that fans are willingly paying their hard-earned cheddar to see two men rolling around on the floor together. WOW!
“Everybody is different. I don’t want to watch two grown men wrestling with panties on. I’m from the hood, we don’t play that,” Hopkins told BoxingScene.com. “To me, I’m not buying a ticket to watch two grown men with panties on, sweating, [with] nuts in their face.
“That’s not me. To compare that to boxing is ludicrous. It’s a porno. It’s an entertainment porno. I’m not wrestling a guy with panties on and his nuts in my face, and they call that a sport.”
Oh my God! After all these years of mainstream resistance, and the hoard of detractors MMA has accumulated, it’s Bernard Hopkins of all people that was finally able to crack MMA’s secret:
The UFC is actually privately funded by G.L.A.D.D., and that is their innovative way of forcing homosexuality to the forefront of professional sports.
(Mental Note: Write letter to UFC demanding money back for all “MMA fights” that I paid to watch. Apparently all those damn events were nothing more than all-male orgies…).
Oh wait-up, B-Hop has more insight to share with us …
“I’m not criticizing people for what kind of entertainment they like,” Hopkins added. “I think most of those people have chains and masks in their closets. There is something out there for everybody. I can understand if 90% of women were going to those things but I can’t understand a grown man sitting there with a couple of guys watching two grown men with panties on, sweating. That’s just my opinion. It’s not a good look.”
The way that I look at it is this; you’re pissed because your sport is quickly going down the tubes, if not already there, and now you’re looking to attack your biggest threat. However, it’s tough to consider MMA a threat considering you have been in our rear-view mirror for years.
