I distinctly remember from the episode Dana saying "That's it, he's out of the UFC".
And yes, Melvin Guillard could fight, in fact he fought Rich Clementi, to where he threatend to kill him before and after the fight.
I don't know who that wa directed to, so my bad if I missunderstand your point. if that was directed to me, like I said I'd be fine with Melvin being cut as soon as he tested positive for cocaine. So I think we are in agreement that he should be gone, along with several other fighters.
I don't care what makes reality TV or not, destroying a house is about as ethical as getting drunk in public.
If someone tells me I can break their property for entertainment value, I don't see why it would be unethical. Idiotic and juvenile, certainly. I don't have an inherant problem with public intoxication, but people are still responsible for their actions.
He were abusive and violent he would have been arrested and charges would have been dropped, neither of them occurred so it was him saying obscene words and being loud. Dude, if he "fought" at the casino it would have been shown on the episode. You're assuming way too much to back your theory up. The dude didn't fight anyone or get violent and yes, he would have been arrested. They would have said so on the show if anything of that occurrence happened and they wouldnt have brought it to him so gently if he got VIOLENT for christ sake.
I never said he was abusive or violent, I'm just not willing to automatically assume he was not simply because he was not arrested. Also, you are correct it's exceedingly likely he would have been arrested if he had fought, but you can be abusive and violent without actually hitting someone. Also, I think it's unlikely any video from the casino security cameras would have been shown, regardless of what he did because the Fertittas wouldn't want to show something negative happening to their customers at their casino. The parking lot video doesn't make them look bad.
When I said people need a new outlook on life I was just simply stating that these things happen ALL THE TIME and it's not a big deal, and I'm sure it's not the first time with a young UFC fighter. If people think this is the first time it's happened and the consequences were justified and that it was so wrong and vile, then yeah they need a new outlook on how they look at things.
I don't know what he actually did in the casino, but just because something happens all the time doesn't make it right. And yes it could have been something wrong and vile, neither of us know for sure, but Dana does so I think he's in a better position to judge.
No, but Dana did hype him up at the start of the show. I especially loved it when they mic'd up Dana White for CB's fight against Nick just to hear him say "This kid is ******* good man". Jesse isn't exciting, CB has credentials, no he doesn't have a large following but the odds are in favor towards him.
Maybe, but if Dana really wanted to manipulate the finals why wouldn't he do it for Amir? I don't think I'm alone in thinking Amir is a much more likable guy than CB. So if he wanted to pick a champion why wouldn't he just let Amir fight Tim instead?
