Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Illogical Reaction of the Day: South Dakota Town Votes to Ban MMA Because Local Fighter Was Involved in Fatal Bar Fight


(Now we know why Brock left…OK, besides ridicule about the tattoo.)

Well, there you have it. Watertown, South Dakota just reverted back to being as closed-minded as New York when it comes to MMA sanctioning.

According to reports, town residents voted 1228-841 to suspend mixed martial arts regulation after a fight between two bar patrons turned fatal when one of the combatants died as a result of injuries he sustained in the fracas. So why would they ban MMA as a result, you may ask? Because one of the combatants, a man by the name of Jerrin Stulken happened to be a local MMA trainer.

Bob Reilly’s cousin Bubba must be the mayor of that podunk town.

So let me get this straight…banning MMA competition in Watertown is supposed to curb bar fighting? Because we all know only MMA fighters get into bar fights and only trained fighters have been involved in fatal scraps. Taking away their legitimate outlet to compete should help things.

Seriously, that would be like the batting coach for the Dodgers killing someone with a bat and LA banning basebell. I’m pretty sure they didn’t ban hunting in South Dakota after a police chief  “mistakenly” shot and killed his wife.

    One day MMA will be universally legalized, and we'll look back on this and laugh. Except for the guy dying we probably won't laugh about that.

    @noizy Don't be silly, the only thing less important than dental hygiene in South Dakota is black people. I know it wasn't nice to say, but its true.

    I would be interested in what the cause of death was. I mean, if it was a reverse inverted triangle choke or something, maybe the town is on the right track.

    I completely agree with their decision. In fact, I think we should ban football too, because it makes people kill their ex-wives and boyfriends, then spend copious amounts of money to eventually get off the hook for it.

    I hope I never kill someone in a bar. I have multiple MMA bouts under my belt, yet I'm also a Marine. Which would get the blame?

    WHO. FUCKING. CARES. Unless you planned on watching what amounts to backyard wrestling in some shitty, podunk, stillwater town, not a single fuck is given by MMA fans about which restrictions the people of this town want to place on their live entertainment.

    I found some interesting facts about Watertown, South Dakota on the net, very interesting. 1228 residents still do not have cable television due to “rampant smut.” 1228 of its residents are married to relatives 1228 residents have an IQ that is at or below 1. 841 residents have an ounce of common sense. 841 residents are at least mildly informed.

    @Darkside - I think it depends if you use your 4 oz. MMA gloves or your Marine issued rifle.

    macreadysshack, If I remember correctly, he kept stompning on the guy's head after he was already unconscious. So, he was a Pride fan, apparantly.

    It doesn't matter, it's not like any events were going to be held in Watertown, North Dakota. I mean it sucks for the locals but I'm sure there are surrounding areas for people to fight in or watch mma events. But yeah, banning mma is retarded.

    MMA glorifies violence, you evil shit-heels. Somebody sees Rashad Evans KO'd, doing the stanky leg, and they're like 'that's fucking cool. But do you know what would be even cooler? Doing that to women. children and the infirm!'

    Well being from Watertown originaly I called some friends as soon as I heard about this. So here is how the locals tell it. First off I went to high school with Stulken and the kid was always a bully and always looking for a fight. The victim here was not looking for a fight Stulken searched him out because he was the "biggest guy in the bar". The victim was out cold with the first punch....Stulken hit him 6-7 times after he was clearly out... Watertown has had several mma events a year for the last few years and they always have a decent turn out. Watertown is hurting there community in more ways than one, all because of one career jackass who whatever he gets he deserves.

    Well, another backwater town shows its ignorance. Big friggin deal! Like who's gonna put on a major event there anyway? The UFC? Strikeforce? Where the heck is this place anyway? Who gives a sh*t about that stinky little hole in the ground? Certainly not I, so ban MMA. Who does this harm? Bar patrons? The barmaids? Willy Wonka?
  44. fingerssfv Says:

    Sun, 06/26/11 - 11:52


    Wait a minute... isn't the culprit in jail? OK, the immediate danger is no longer lurking the streets, so the town council chooses to have a vote and the townfolk vote to ban MMA, right? OK. Are you going to let the murderer go or what? Let him rot in jail and show how tough he is while in jail. Case closed. So why the anger toward MMA? Because the bully got drunk or tipsy and wanted to see how tough he was? Recall the saying: cold can of courage? When a cowboy drank coors, he tried to get tough. We called that a cold can of courage. I usually stopped that cold. The dead guy should have fought back, or walked away and for the rest of the patrons to stand and watch while some punk is kicking someone in the head while he was already knocked out, those patrons are a bunch of pussies for not kicking the sh*t out of the bully. Stop the beating. Everyone else in that bar should be held accountable for not stopping it. Don't tell me there aren't a dozen pool sticks in a bar. I know I wouldn't have been the only one to step in unless the victim was a di*k, then I probably would have walked out of the bar, before I saw anything.

    If people who are involved in MMA as trainers or fighters cannot control themselves to avoid violence in public (which seems to be the case for too many idiots out there) then those hooligans should be banned for life from participating in the 'sport'. If laws were enacted to make participation in competition by people who engage in public violence an offence under the law (punishable by imprisonment), many of the louts would go out of their way to avoid violence outside of the ring/cage. There may be a lot more swearing but there would be much less real physical damage to Joe Public who has no chance of defending himself against a trained aggressor. Minimal defence eg blocking the blows from a drunk Joe Public is okay but walking away from him is the best solution. It takes courage and control to walk away from a shmuck to protect him from his own stupidity.
