Kicked out of the UFC
 
for breaking a car window??

Yet they allow (almost seem to encourage) the cast to destroy a 500k house every season??

Seems pretty hypocritical to me.

I've known a lot of fighters growing up and most of them are a bit nutty - they tend to be very emotional.. on both ends of the spectrum.. quick to be super happy - then cry over nothing and blow up and break stuff at the drop of a hat.

I'm sort of surprised Dana is taking such a hard line on this incident - sets a dangerous precident for future fighters...

I mean - why not cut Forrest when he tore up a UFC door a few episodes back for no reason at all?

Who said it was for breaking a window? I highly doubt that it would be for just simply breaking a window...I would imagine there is more to the story than what the previews show.

Supposedly they did something in a casino. The limo came later.

Watching the preview again...It looks as though something was thrown through the window...Hard to tell though.

Its good that somebody is getting kicked off the finale and out of the UFC. Maybe these idiots will start acting like professionals with the chance of a lifetime instead of drunken juveniles with a case of the temper tantrums.

I hope that this is where the line gets drawn for future seasons but I'm sure it will be an isolated instance of punishment. I would like to see everyone that partakes in the drunken thrashing of the houses every season get cut from the UFC. It's starting to get ridiculous.

if you watch the preview they are showing now (i saw it this morning) you can see someone getting out of the limo and running real quick.

it was just a quick blur, but it looked like CB.

The production crew and the UFC encourage the destruction of the house because they think it's what we want to see and that it gets ratings. They also encourage the drunkness and fights, thats why they supply a fully stocked free bar.

You should read Mike Dolce's latest blog. It really shows a lot about this.

If they're going to get wasted and do dumb things, i would prefer it was another extremely technical street fight rather than trashing the house again (yawn). or remember when bisping got wasted on there and was running off at the mouth, he was hilarious.

Yeah, I have been keeping up on Dolce's commentary. I have a lot of respect for him, he took his opportunity seriously and acted like a professional. Too bad that the others fell victim to the producers hunger for drunken debauchery. I know that it's a desired effect on the producers part but they aren't forcing alcohol down the fighters throats either. They choose to act like drunken fools so I think that there should be consequences.
