We should only let people fight who agree with us about everything.

Speaking of which I just saw my first Neo-Nazi here in my hometown just a couple of weeks ago. Well I assume he was because he had a swastika tattooed on his bicep. I have lived in this town for over 40 years and I don't think I have ever seen anyone with a swastika tattoo. He wasn't what I expected he had long hair and wore a an old ratty cowboy hat. He was standing in line at an Arby's helping a blind guy, so at least they help the handicapped.

I'll start off by saying that I've had family who perished in nazi concentration camps.

That being said, I couldn't care less about someone who aligns himself with Nazi views and belongs to a neo-nazi party. Same way that I couldn't care less about communists. If I hate him for those views, I'm only feeding the machine and continuing the progression.

His views also have no bearing on his competition. If these views lead him into serious legal trouble outside the ring, then he should be subjected to the conduct policy just like every other fighter, but he shouldn't be more aggressively looked at due to his views.

Yesterday
Dear fans,

here is my public statement on the allegations that have been made against me on various websites yesterday:

I am not a neo-Nazi, never have been, never will be. At no time in my life have I ever made any xenophobic, anti-Semitic or racist statements, either in public or in private. Yes, I do have a past as a football hooligan in my youth, but that is a thing of the past as I have been solely focusing on my professional career for the past couple of years.

My grappling coach and good friend Marcin Bandel hails from Poland and I have friends from all over the world. Next week, I will join a training camp with fighters from Bosnia, Brazil, Greece, Iraq, Italy, Morocco, Poland, Russia and Tunesia do you think I had any interest in training with all these non-German athletes if I was a neo-Nazi? There is just no place for racism and xenophobia in an international, global sport like MMA.

I've been trying to take legal action against the person that has started the smear campaign against me on the internet, but unfortunately to no avail so far as he hides behind synonyms and publishes his defamation on websites with no legal information. For the past two years this guy has been contacting promoters, sponsors, authorities and journalists trying to prevent me from getting fights and trying to destroy my reputation.

My friends and training partners come from various nationalities, religious and social backgrounds. I don't support any kind of political extremism, racism, xenophobia or neo-Nazi ideas and ideologies. In fact, I am a completely non-political person. Right now, I only have three goals in life: Being the best man I possibly can for my beautfil girlfriend and future wife, being a good example to my son and becoming the best fighter I can possibly be.

-- Benny

Thanks for the update. Having the accused side of the story changes everything, as it should. Pretty easy to accuse the guy without having any real proof.

Brinsa has now been released from the UFC without ever having stepped foot in the Octagon. That has to be a first?
