Default bernhard hopkins on mma

Bernard Hopkins compares MMA to gay pornography:

"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. 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," Hopkins told ***********. "I'm not wrestling a guy with panties on and his nuts in my face, and they call that a sport."

"I'm not criticizing people for what kind of entertainment they like. 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," Hopkins said.

That's pretty old news I think it was around 2009 since then he has changed his tune a bit.

More well rounded.
Pacman and George foremen would shit on 7/10 MMA fighters.Well at least when George was in his prime.MMa fans are just youngsters, that suck at striking and usually win most of the street fighters because they have the intentions to kill rather than to fight.

Heard this a million times, why report it, all it does is make a big argument about MMA vs. Boxing as per usual.

This is old news nevertheless it still remains true. What gets me the most is just the visual. Personally under NO CIRCUMSTANCES do I ever want to be on top of a sweaty guy with his legs wrapped around me. Don't get me wrong I do understand why they do it and the technique but it doesn't make it look any less gross. I got to agree with Bhop on this one. Not my cup of tea. What's funny to me are guys who compain about a fighter like john ruiz with all the hugging yet they love mma. Just weird to me.

That's hilarious and true! I don't understand why watching two roided up bar fighters from Bismarck, North Dakota (or some other small town) rolling around on the ground with spandez shorts on is entertaining. The pyrotechnics, bikini-clad plastic bimbos, cheap rock music and coked-up announcers screaming at every telegraphed movement the "athletes" make doesn't get me going either. It's the NASCAR of fight sports - it's marketed to surburban kids and middle America and they market it VERY well. But it's just not for me.

Boxing is a sport first, a spectacle second. It's an inner city based sport, so most of the fighters are from ethnic, working class hoods (blacks, Mexicans, Italians, Slavics, Filipinos, etc). That doesn't exactly relate to the average suburban kids (black of white) or "Joe six pack" that grew up watching wrestling. It's instnat gratification - 3 to 5 round fights that usually end in somebody getting bloody. Not not due to skill set, but rather to lack of skill and poor technique.

Coincidentally, anybody here ever notice how most of the MMA highlights on the news are "strikes"? Ironic huh?
