Down 4 the count WHAT IN THE **** ARE YOU BANGING ON ABOUT.
Ok so MMA is a mans sport, are all men Racists? Men drink beer, should fighters come in drunk shouting racial sexist prejudice shouts and use broken bottles?
So what if it's only a "word" words mean something or you wouldn't be having a conversation. With out words nothing would ever happen, words are everything.
And actually there is a difference in conotation when rampage says it, he's clearly just ******* around, I don't approve of him saying it and it's irritable but that's who he is; get used to it. Someone in the crowd shouting it with the intent of racial hatred is ******* pathetic, no 2 ways of looking about it.
Jeez I can't believe I had to even re-ittirate that for you. Ignorant moron.

It still has its share of rather well-publicized racial problems, though, you'd have to agree. But that goes for a lot of places, unfortunately.
You'd think MMA would be less prone to that kind of crap than some sports, since it was international and multicultural from the get-go. But sadly, some MMA fans are just as bigoted as some fans in other sports.
Hell, even check out this forum. There was a guy on here (I'm too lazy to look him up) who had an American flag with a swastika on it as an avatar. He was greeted by another dude with "88, comrade." ('88' is a short form for 'Heil Hitler.')
Hard to believe there are people who have the intelligence to follow this sport so in-depth, but are still stupid enough to spout that garbage. We live in one strange, stange universe, my friend.

This is how I see it... theres a big diffrence between a UFC fan and a MMA fan. Im sure that AT LEAST half of the crowd booing/taunting rampage with racial slurs had no idea who he was untill they saw him fight Eastman. If they are stupid/ignorant enough to be racist Im sure that they are also too stupid/ignorant to become dedicated fans of a sport that has the majority of its origin based out of countrys such as Japan and Brazil. If they yell slurs to a black man then Im sure they would do the same to an Asian. With this in mind, I would not go as far to say that Im ashamed to be an MMA fan, but rather that Im very dissapointed to see so much ignorance in what is my favorite sport. Sadly the rise of the UFC comes hand in hand with the death of respect once shown by Pride FC and other non-mainstream, non-american, MMA organizations.

I remember many years ago when I was a kid that men were actually men.
Nowadays men have become a bunch of snivelling panzies who spend all of their time worrying about who or what is gonna offend them next.
Your clearly missing the point here. This has nothing to do with someone hurting their feelings.

(You know...a mans sport)
Instead of commenting on the TWO beatings that Rampage put on Liddell...we're talking about who called poor Quinton a bad name.
First, I'd like to know what makes it a man's sport? You do realize Dana White said that something like 40% of their fan base is women. Or how about the fact that they do have women MMA. Just because there is violence, it is considered a man's thing? Hell, even my mom wanted to watch UFC 71.

And we did talk about the beatings Rampage put on Chuck.

Learn the meaning behind it when a bigot says it.

I dont know why I was surprised. You see it on sites like this and Sherdog all the time. Dumbass bigots who dont want to see anyone win who isn't some pearly toothed hick farm boy from buttf*** nowhere U.S.A.

Sickening.
So how does this make you feel ashamed of being an MMA fan???

You are really into this manly man idea. Any anatomical problems you are trying to compensate for?

Words do mean everything you idiot. Nothing would exsist if they didn't. Oh and clearly they do mean SOMETHING. Otherwise you wouldn't take the time to respond with guess what, MORE WORDS!
Just because he uses it as a joking matter is different. You're using at as a racial slur, there is a difference.
Why am I all touchy? Because I can voice my opinion without acting like a 3 year old?
I think you're the one who is touchy and shying away from a subject that you can't speak about with out using the shock factor and limited intelligence. You're also limiting the factual basis of what happened. Yes he's a grown man, other grown men should be intelligent enough not to talk stupid racial ignorant prejudice moronic bull shit.
Grow up.

I would rather be an "ignorant moron" as you stated than a touchy feely, feminized version of a man who gets upset when a GROWN MAN is called a name at a sporting event.

Hey...if the "N-Word" is good enough for Rampage to say every 5 minutes....It's good enough for me as well.

14/88
Haha this kid cracks me up

I do think this thread is a little overly politically correct though. I drop the N bomb around my friends in a joking manner all the time. Im not racist or a redneck.

Screaming it at the actual event where im sure there were black people in the audience isnt cool though.

The sad fact is a large portion of the US population is still stuck in the 19th century in terms of attitudes towards sex and race. Hell, there's still a ton of people flying Confederate flags and proclaiming that "the South will rise again". This isn't going to change anytime soon, unfortunately.
