That is the dummest thing I have ever heard. I'm pretty sure there is a joke to be found in there somewhere, but I'm not gonna touch it.
I'm not following you here.

If you are insinuating that ESPN being a sports channel is common knowledge than you may be correct. But the ESPN channel is newer in south america and due to the fact that they have never had it, they call it "deportes" for "Sports"

How is this dumb?

Some of us are a bit thick....he's talking about the fact that some immigrants happen to be Spanish and get deported and deportes happens to mean sports. Deportes is similar to deported, it's great fun.

I saw your post. But people from south america, who don't speak english don't understand the word "sports".

So they use the word "deportes" to clarify the the initials of ESPN.

Is this really retarded?

Wait a sec- I'm totally confused. You mean to tell me there are other languages other than English?!? WTF?

Next thing you'll try and sell me is that there are other cultures besides white people and ompalopas on Earth....

War Machine is a complete idiot who needs to grow up. He is trying to be political but it is very obvious that he is totally uninformed. The kid should keep his blogs on the subject of fighting because everytime he opens his mouth about anything else he comes off as an ignorant retard.

He could have had a decent career in the UFC, not champion material but an exciting fighter that the fans could get behind.

Oh well, Here's to War Machine fighting in Tuffman competitions in Tijuana for free drinks and a 100 pesos

I couldn't agree more with this statement. These guys are professional athletes, in sanctioned events, in a sport people want the world to take seriously.

If I wanted to watch "two dudes beat the $#!+ out of each other" I'd watch Kimbo Slice videos on Youtube.

I don't expect all these fighters (or any pro athlete for that matter)to be well-spoken intellectuals with articulate opinions of relevance on world matters (although it is nice when they are) because that is not their forte...they are athletes. But I do expect everyone to be accountable for what they say. And I don't blame their employer for not wanting to be associated with such idiocy.

We are living in a world of media devices cameras, computers, etc. Anything you say or do or post on a blog can be recorded and used later. So you need to be diligent in how you conduct yourself more than ever. Ask Michael Phelps about that. War Machine screwed himself, and from the look of his myspace writings, didn't even learn from it.

So all you guys who think MMA is art and dont want to watch 2 dudes just beat the shit out of each other didnt enjoy fights like Takiyama vs Frye? Or how about that brutal technique deficient slug fest from Bonnar and Forrest?

I agree that the sport is art but honestly I dig the slug fests as well as the technique driven fights. Most of you are just talking out of both sides of your mouth.

Comparing what would happen to an NFL player as compared to a fighter is stupid because both sports are held to completely different standards. Case in point how boxing is taken compared to other sports. Think about shit that guys like Tyson spewed out.

I never thought I would find myself defending War Machine who Ive never liked but the dude has his place in MMA. BJ has said hes going to "kill" other fighters, he licks his opponents blood off of his gloves afterwards. You might dislike the guy but I dont hear any of you clamoring for him getting fired.

Wise- the way I see it especially regarding this case is one, you can't compare an established MMA star such as BJ to War Idiot- BJ has earned his stripes and says crap like that all the time to hype fights. War Idiot does not have that luxury and hyping a fight with- I will kill/destroy/maul/mutilate/etc. my opponent is completely different from saying I hope the U.S. president is killed. Two completely different things.

I don't like PC bullshit anymore than the next guy but a brand new organization that is getting their first shot with a name company like ESPN(whether it's Deportes or not) can't take the chance of the huge PR backlash having this jackass on the show and what he has already said put their own company in a bad light. They fail at this and their company is done- why risk the future with a kid who can't control his mouth? This won't be the last idiotic thing he will say or blog about and if the chance happened that he actually won this tournament can you imagine the questions like " So War Machine, great job winning the tournament so do you really want President Obama to be killed while in office?".

Bellator had every right to dump this moron.
