MMA Fighter Challenges People to Punch Him in the Face, Everyone Fails

France Upholds MMA Ban, “Who Cares?” Responds Everybody


(I mean, can you blame them?) 

For those of you who consider France to be the authority on anything (threesomes being the obvious exception), this news might come as a bit of a downer to you.

According to ESPN, the French Sports Ministry (or as it should be called, the Southwest German Sports Ministry. Way to go, FDR!) recently reconfirmed their ban on mixed martial arts, effectively cancelling any plans we might have to, as Lorenzo Fertitta put it, “eat croissants [and] watch the UFC pretty soon.” But relax, guys, they still have handball!

Despite joining the International Mixed Martial Arts Federation last March, the fight to keep MMA (and specifically, the UFC) out of France has seemingly found additional support in recent years, bringing to question whether Bob Reilly has recently purchased a summer home in Versailles or not. Someone should look into that. In either case, folks like Carole Bretteville, the president of the Women’s Committee for Federation Francaise du Sport d’Entreprise, point specifically to the UFC’s past social faux pas regarding females and the homosexual community as reason enough to deny the organization entry into their country:

France works very hard to promote equality in all aspects of life, especially in sports. I was appalled to find out how UFC was lobbying in France, especially when [told] how UFC has tolerated derogatory statements and attitudes against women. We cannot allow such an organisation to destroy all the work we have done to promote equality through French sports.

“…like the Tour De France,” she said before throwing a ninja smoke bomb and vanishing from the room.

Of all the Countries to not surrender to UFC world domination, France wouldn't have been my first choice.
