Blog compares murder suicide to wearing mouthpiece with fangs

FightOpinion.com did a nice job of pointing out this line where somehow a possible murder is explained by the fact that one fighter, Andrei "The Pit Bull" Arlvoski wears a mouthpiece with fangs:

I’m not sure what in Levens’ background may have led him to this, but with the MMA we’re not exactly dealing with your typical athlete. Another fighter at the Affliction event, Sergei “The Pit Bull” Arlovsky, is featured on his web site with vampire fangs.

Unless Zach at FightOpinion added the second line, it looks like Deadspin pulled it down realizing how dumb the statement was about Arlovski and his mouthpiece. Although it could be a fighter we're not familiar with named Sergei Arlovski.

It looks it was there at some point because a reader named Captain Caveman responded with this line:

Another fighter at the Affliction event, Sergei "The Pit Bull" Arlovsky, is featured on his web site with vampire fangs. That's his mouthguard that he's been wearing for years. Congratulations, Rick. That's the equivalent of pointing out that Ichiro Suzuki has his first name on the back of his uniform on a post about Cory Lidle dying.

I bet you if we look hard we can find a correlation between John Randle's facepaint and the Rae Carruth murder.

Who is Sergie Arlovsky? People who don't know sh*t about MMA doesn't need to be writing about it.

I agree, nothing makes me angrier than reading people's opinions on something they're clueless about.

I actually agree with the fang reference- I went as a vampire one Halloween when I was 8 and wore fake "fangs". They transformed me into a blood thirsty killer that attacked(and killed) multiple kids with my pumpkin shaped Halloween candy holder and I kicked Mrs. Walcott(a 80 year old blind grandmother) in the shin..twice.

MMA fighters are animals anyway, not your typical athlete. Great journalism.

This sort of thing makes me happy, most average people have to realize that the media is trying to give a bad name to MMA. Dude, I watch MMA, so does that mean I **** people because of Joe Son? If the logic used to try to discredit MMA was used anywhere else, it would be laughed at by everybody.

Don't be so sure.

This same logic has been used to fight religion, video games, horror movies, and heavy metal albums.

It's the same tired shit people talk about everything they either don't like or don't understand... Usually the latter.
