Reading this has me SMH profusely. In what world is it okay for an athlete to act that way? A champion, nonetheless. MMA isn't a show, it isn't a business, it is a sport and should be treated as such. And excuse me, Mr Coker, but as the president of the organization, you can't control your fighters and make excuses for their ridiculous behaviour??? Is he trying to use the extra security as a means of promoting the event further? Disgusting.
I'm sick of reading about these stupid gimmicks used to attract people to watch events as you would to a public execution in the Middle Ages. MMA should be first and foremost a sport, not a business. The sport itself has many ethics that now seem to be forgotten or that have expired to allow cheap displays of primitive acts such as the Diaz brothers' brawl after the Hendo vs Shields fight.
