on a side note from the Saling case (in which there is clearly no defending a man who has a conviction as a sex offender and neo-nazi tattoos)

I'd imagine it would cause as much as incessant bitching as Cain's tattoos.
Pages and pages.

Speaking of waste of time, I don't know why you come in here with nothing to say but an attempt to slander me. Get over yourself.

There was a whole article on this awhile back. Fascinating stuff. Go watch Romper Stomper, American History X, Malcolm X, it's all prevalent around the world. The crazy thing is I think I've met all people off all cultures and I can say this there are sour apples in every ethnical group, but majority are koo as long as you give em respects. It's that simple.

All everybody needs to do is blaze and watch the space channel. I'm dead serious once they realize how much more there is to us as human beings living on this beautiful planet Earth they'll realize how trivial and innocuous racism is and this is coming from a guy who is mildly racist...hah...hah. I have preconceived notions of certain groups, but I know better than to judge em.

That'd be because you're an arse who deserves to be called on his BS. I can understand that you disagree with what you might deem weak points, and you may even be right as to their lack of merit. But you can't seem to be able to debate or refute those points without first calling into question the intelligence of others. You're jumping all over people who have in no way jumped on you. You're an ass-hat, and I'm here to tell you that you're an ass-hat. So, deal with it, ass-hat.

Been in this situation before so to diffuse all this negativity...

Watch Dave Chappelle at his finest as white/black supremacist Clayton Bigsby.

This thread needs more arguing over hypothetical double standards.


Anyway, Bellator also had this guy on one of their cards. And it seems like he's fought in quite a few states. I'm just a bit surprised, because I know commissions ask applicants for fight licenses about criminal history, and say character is a factor in their decision.

So either he told the truth, and a package of forcing someone under 13 to have sex and domestic violence doesn't disqualify you, OR commissions are really big on the honor system and nobody checks to see if you lied.

I guess he could have told them he turned his life around, but if he actually had, you'd think he'd get rid of the tattoos. Plus, he had the domestic violence case after he got out of prison, so it's not like he reformed in prison and has been squeaky clean since then.

If someone tries to argue that 1 + 1 = 7....they clearly aren't very intelligent.

Same thing.


And again, if you don't have an opinion worth my time, I really don't want to hear you..ie that means actually staying on topic and not these unprovoked ad hominem attacks on myself.

Update:

Quote:
After a brief investigation, Brandon Saling's license has been revoked by the Ohio Athletic Commission and New Jersey State Athletic Control Board.

OAC executive director Bernie Profato told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that Saling (8-6 MMA, 0-1 SF) violated administrative statutes when he lied about his criminal background on an application for a fight license.

Saling can appeal the ruling at a OAC hearing planned for April 11.

"There's a dual thing there," Profato said. "He'll have to answer to the falsification, and two, if you read the law, it says they don't have to license you for a felony. Now, it will be whether they ever license him again because of being listed as a sexual predator."

Saling's status as a sex offender and felon came to light when he fought Roger Bowling (11-2 MMA, 4-2 SF) at this past weekend's "Strikeforce: Tate vs. Rousey." (He lost via second-round TKO.) Following the event, Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker said he wasn't aware of Saling's background and told reporters the OAC would launch a "full investigation" into the matter.

Profato said Saling marked "no" on the part of his application for a license that asks about previous convictions beyond traffic offenses. The fighter was sent notice this morning that his license had been revoked. The administrative action will be noted on a national database that tracks administrative and medical suspensions of fighters.

If Saling is unsuccessful in appealing the revocation, he must wait a year before he is eligible to reapply for a license in Ohio. Other commissions are not required to honor his administrative suspension, though they often do.

Fighters who seek a license are required to disclose their criminal past in several states that sanction MMA. But the sheer volume of licensees make it difficult to catch discrepancies such as in the case of Saling.

"I've got 4,000 fighters," he said. "I'm going to look at them, and if we catch something – I'm not saying we wouldn't have missed this. But once it's brought to your attention, you would take action.

"If it's homicide or sexual predator, or if you're applying for a promoter's license and it's fraud, or theft in office, you probably aren't going to get licensed."

Saling, who bears a tattoo of his nickname, "White Steel," declined comment when contacted today by MMAjunkie.com. He carries an 8-6 record and hadn't fought for Strikeforce prior to Saturday. He fought twice for the Ohio-based NAAFS promotion in January and February, winning both professional bouts.

Coker declined comment on today's ruling.
