Well if you look at the fans of UFC, 90% of them are 15-25 white males. You're gonna get a stupid one here and there that is going to chant racial slurs and stuff, just because thats how he was raised.

Personally, Rampage has everything to be the next big household name in MMA. He's got good mic skills, good name, good gimmick & style and he is just amazing on his feet and on the ground.

I didn't hear any during the fight, but I think racism is disgusting.

Forum Bets: 8-4

I've got Tanner over Grove. How about a bet?

For those of you who are trying to justify the racial slurs and racist abuse thrown at rampage, **** off. Even if Rampage is an idiot and a disrespectful fighter (which he isnt at all) that still doesnt make it alright to shout racist abuse at him. If non racist people didnt like his personality then they would shout about his personality, only racists shout racial slurs. The only reason people shout racist abuse at rampage is because they are racist scum, it has nothing to do with his personality.

The choices for cities in the US should be LA, New York, Miami, Houston, Las Vegas, Austin, Pheonix, and Atlanta, I can not think of anymore cities in the United States that have more ethnic diversity than those cities I listed, maybe Phoenix doesnt have great ethnic diversity but the people there are very respectful of athletes most of the time, and maybe you could add Detroit into the mix, and possibly Salt Lake City, but yes, it is quite rediculous that MMA fans in the United States yell out racial slurs like that, but I am sure Rampage has been able to hone that anger he has for those people and use it for his benefit in his fights, emotion is the biggest weapon of them all.

You couldn't really hear anything other than boo's on the satellite, but that is pretty disgusting. If you've followed Rampage for any length of time you'd realize that he's actually a really nice and funny dude.

EXACTLY, nothing excuses racism. Excusing racial slurs because you don't like the guy is retarded. And if they (the people who don't like him) actually bothered following his career and listening more to what he has to say you'd find that he isn't a jerk. Just a guy who likes to have fun but he does have a charactor when he fights.

You're pretty much right. Only thing I question is people throwing racist remarks at a nationality BECAUSE they are racist. Mostly yeah, but some people aren't bigots or anything and have made racial slurs at individuals they generally dont like, not to insult their heritage (which is still wrong of them anyways) but to insult that person themself.

Not that I'm defending them because I'm with you here, just thought id point that out because ive seen this before.

Psalm 30:5 "For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning."

Top 3 Favorite Fighters
1. Chuck "The Iceman" Liddell
2. Glover Teixeira
3. Demian Maia

That's pretty sad. I love Chuck Liddell, but I was happy that Rampage won because I think it's his time to shine. Betcha noone would be yelling anything racial towards him if he were right in front of them.
