When it comes to picking sides in a fight between Dana White and Bob Arum, it often feels like we’re simply choosing the lesser of two evils. Don’t get us wrong, aside from his stance on marijuana in combat sports, Bob Arum comes off as a chode for the most part, especially when he decides to open his mouth about how MMA fans are all a bunch of homosexual skinhead racists. But every now and again, The Baldfather says something so pants-shittingly stupid and drenched in irony that it makes us wonder whether or not he has been completely blinded by his own power. Take the following for example, in which DW calls Arum “the dumbest promoter in the history of the world” for allowing Manny Pacquiao to fight Juan Manuel Marquez a fourth time:
Dumbest fight in history. Bob Arum is a moron. You don’t take that fight, you idiot. Why would you do that fight? It’s all about the money, that’s why. That was a money fight, that’s what that fight was done for. He should have fought Bradley. Bradley’s the fight they should have done. He would have knocked Bradley out, he would have got his belt back and now he’s back in the position he should have been in. [Pacquiao's] one of the best fighters in the world. He goes out and fights Marquez again? Bob Arum is the dumbest promoter in the history of the world.
Right…but Jon Jones vs. Chael Sonnen and Georges St. Pierre vs. Nick Diaz are somehow not “money fights.” PLEASE Dana, go on about how Chael “Coming off a loss and hasn’t fought at LHW since 2005″ Sonnen vs. the most dominant LHW champion since Chuck Liddell is something other than a money fight. Or how the man coming off both a loss and a marijuana suspension who threw away his first opportunity to fight the champ vs. said champ is just matchmaking 101. Because, as we all know, Jones and Sonnen (or GSP and Diaz for that matter) have fought to three incredibly close decisions before and there was a public outcry for some closure. WAIT A MINUTE, NONE OF THAT HAPPENED. Pot, meet kettle.
Meanwhile, Mark Sanchez has been quoted as saying that Tim Tebow “Needs to learn how to throw the fucking football to right team.” Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to go correct someone on their grammatically incorrect blog post.
