Jay Hieron Talks IFL Contract Status, Reacts to Jay Larkin’s “Gay Foreplay” Remarks

You know what the best part of this video is? It isn’t hearing IFL welterweight champ Jay Hieron do his best not to bash the IFL even though they canceled his next fight and yet aren’t allowing him to take another, though that is uncomfortable watch.

No, the best part is at the 1:54 mark when MMA Rated’s Ariel Helwani informs him of Jay Larkin’s comments comparing ground fighting to “gay foreplay”. The look on Hieron’s face at that moment, it’s priceless. He also goes on to say that he’s never met Larkin, which seems odd.

Hieron seems to be taking the whole IFL cancellation in stride, though I have to say I might be slightly more pissed off if my employer was keeping me from making a living. They aren’t giving him a fight in August, and also aren’t allowing him to look for other fights until after August. So basically they’re telling him to take the summer off, and if he doesn’t want to, then they’re forcing him to take the summer off. Nice.

Nothing like hanging out in fighter purgatory to make you wonder what happened to that organization that was supposed to be taking great care of their fighters.

Eh, you know how it is when you see that your place of employ is a sinking ship. You take it in stride, you play it cool and you quietly find something better, like a company that will still be in business in six months. After that, it's all over but the blowing of kisses and so many face waves.

Did you see me in the background? I was also in this season of TUF as a coach but did not get much air time. For anybody that doesn't know i shit myself during my TUF fight with Nate Diaz! You can even see my sh'art stain before running off to the locker room.

$kala likes gay foreplay too- June 23, 2008 at 4:51 pm
That was a great reaction from Hieron! If Jay Larking and Gary Shaw both think the ground game is so gay then why did they bother getting into the MMA business?

Who the hell is that guy conducting that interview, though? Biggest douchebag I have ever heard! They should get someone else to do those interviews.
