I don't get the joke, and don't see how it's related to ****.

Either way, Torres is gone again, so I'm good.

The guy is wrong in the head if he thinks he can go around making comments like that with no consequence. I guess we'll see him in Bellator by the time the years done, but he would've had no success in UFC.

Hopefully this firing, if it is the reason he's gone, will straighten his head out and make him think before he tweets.

He clearly didn't learn his lesson the last time.

Twitter is the beginning of the end for free speech in the world. Give it another few decades and free speech will be banned because people say such stupid things. Members of the public are already getting arrested in the UK for derogatory tweets and sentenced to prison time. We are heading to that futuristic dystopia of corporate government rule! you heard it here first!

Imagine if this is one of those situations where you leave to go to the bathroom and your friends decide to mess with your phone

He was using yet again another quote.. I hope he got cut for something else than this. Look at all the stuff DW has said.

He probably shouldn't have used this one but still, that's not a reason to cut one of your most valuable 145'rs. The division is shallow as it is.

Maybe there's more to this. Seems weird he'd be released in August for a tweet in May that wasn't widely published like the first incident. You'd think a disciplinary release would be immediate after the violation to act as a deterrence to others.

Some people think that they can convey either a philosophy on life or a complex political statement using a signature on the internet. I'm not one of them.

I don't think that the 'no, don't stop' portion of the tweet is what people would take issue with. It would be the 'stop, no, and don't' fragment that could be termed offensive. One could look at it as a woman spurning the advances of a man, though it's not a stretch to view it as continued and unwanted advances on an unwilling woman.

I take more issue with the stupidity of Torres. Regardless of what the tweet actually means, he must have known he was on thin ice and should have avoided sexual tweets entirely. It's just plain sense, which Torres has obviously had knocked out of him.

Sad world we live in.

Public interaction is made and pushed on fighters to use. At the same time they want to police what everyone says and how they say it.

Slowly turning into a scary country we live where everything is starting to get censored. Free speech is lost.
