He is helping teach BJJ to a Mixed Martial Artist who some people from the same country he is from dont like. It is not like he is scamming money from the poor!
I dont quite understand your logic here!
Just because some of his countrymen dont like sonnen does not mean that what he is doing is immoral or reprehensible at all!
I'll try to explain better.
My mom is originally from the Philippines. Not a very rich country at all.
If someone made a name for himself making fun of the Philippines, saying things like: "I didnt know your people had cars! I didnt know your people had the internet! etc"
Then, this individual came up to me and said: "I'll pay you a salary to help me beat up a Filipino guy Ive been mocking for the past few years"
Well, in that position, the only times I would accept this is:
1) If I had trouble feeding myself
2) Enough money to change my lifestyle entirely.
Other than that, I would consider myself a sell out.
Hopefully I explained myself better.
Does that make sense to you?
How is helping Chael "morally" wrong? Or wrong in any sense? Yes chael is an ass sometimes.....Yes he was involved in a shady business deal.....Vinny is helping him train for a fight FFS. He isnt helping Sonnen launder money or bury a body.
Im not saying its morally wrong for everybody.
What you deem as right/wrong is up to you.
My explanation is that if someone is making a name for himself by making really negative comments about my country, and he offers me a job, I would not accept it because it would go against what I
If a dude opens a business in your city, but you know this dude HATES the U.S.
Calls all americans ignorant.
Makes jokes about your fear of terrorists.
Says he's there to make a quick buck, then leave the country.
Then he offers you a job.
What do you do?
