Nick Ring is Not Impressed With Reporter’s Inference That He Lost UFC 127 Fight to Riki Fukuda

Call Nick Ring whatever you want; just don’t call him a loser when he won a fight.

In an interview conducted with the UFC middleweight this weekend, reporter Dean Panas asked Ring about his UFC 127 fight, insinuating that the unanimous decision victory over Riki Fukuda was an unjust one.

Ring didn’t take to kindly to the theory that he didn’t deserve to beat fellow UFC newcomer, Fukuda.

“Well, I thought that Riki Fukuda had a tough night. What elses do you want me to say? He was a current world champion fighting out of Deep Impact. Fighting at a high level these fights are hard to finish, right? So, whatever.”

When pressed by Panas to admit that it was a lot closer than the judges’ scorecards indicated, Ring seemed to get a bit perturbed.

“I  actually haven’t even watched the fight, but the judges obviously gave me the first two rounds and they gave him the third round, so…I mean, it was a unanimous decision, you know? All three judges scored basically the same thing. I don’t know what you say about that, but it was, you know, it was unanimous…That’s why judges are there to judge and I’ll say they just did a pretty damn good job.”

Still, Panas persisted, pointing out that Ring was beaten up pretty good in the third round.

“Well, you go into fights, you take beatings,” Ring pointed out. “That’s part of it.”

Instead of moving on, Panas wouldn’t let it go, telling  Ring that if he gets back in the Octagon and puts up an impressive win, the fans will forget about his “controversial” win. The sour facial expression on Ring (1:57) betrays how he really feels about the statement. Still his answer is level-headed, yet firm.

“Well, I’m not worried. This is what I do. I like to fight and you’re going to win some, you’re going to lose some. I mean, I got the win on that one, so I’m happy. I move on.”

Before signing off, Panas apologizes for pissing  Ring off.

“Sorry for busting your balls on the controversy, but people did want to talk about it,” he explained.

“Okay. Thank you,” Ring replied, happy that the interview was over.

I'm not gay bashing, but I sincerely thought gay dudes were nicer than this.

Hey patrick share with us all your gay travels. Let us see your oh so awesome world. You seem so knowledgeable about the situation.
Patrick- March 10, 2011 at 6:31 am
HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! He said fags! And made references to cock sucking!
dranokills- March 9, 2011 at 8:20 pm
When you fags get done suck starting each other, perhaps we can go on.

*Insert tired, played out, unoriginal gay joke. Accuse anybody who doesn't think it's hilarious of being a butthurt, humorless faggot.*

You see, here at Cagepotato we have what's called a SENSE OF HUMOR.
If you don't think "Hay guise! This guy is a cawk smoker" is the absolute pinnacle of edgy humor, then you just have no sense of humor, it's over your head and you don't belong here. Fag.
(it's funny 'cos I used the word fag, that's funny, might be over your head though.)

I get so sick of the lame asses that come here to complain about rape jokes and homophobia.. do you people even read anything on the site before signing up and commenting? Different sites cater to different audiences, and this one caters to people with a sense of humor.. and yeah maybe a little bit of a twisted sense of humor. Get one or get out.

Grossidiot post translation:

I'm a homosexual, and I got into mma beacause it "is mostly men flexing their muscles in their underwear and then later grappling in tight spandex shorts", which I think is super awesome. I come to this site to catch up on mma news, and to look at gsp's greasy hairless body, but am disapointed to see so many people making funny jokes about my sexuality. Please stop becasue you are hurting my gay feelings.

Although the Potato Nation tells it like it is. Don't lump the rest of us in with your childish immature ramblings about gay people.

"Nick Ring is a faggot ass-cleaner.
A rump ranger.
A salad-tosser.
A skin flute player....You dont have to be homophobic to see it, its just right sorry we hurt your feelings about your gay lover,try another site maybe they will tell you how great he is"

I hope I am not the only one that reads this sort of childish playground vitriol and feels embarassed that people like this are speaking for this site and worst of all, speaking on behalf of the sport that we love.

Hey grossidiot, me thinketh you protestuth to much.
Nick Ring is a faggot ass-cleaner.
A rump ranger.

A skin flute player.

GrossIdiot- March 8, 2011 at 8:34 pm
Bunch of Asshole HomoPhobes... Is nearly every MMA fan a homophobic misogynist ??

MMA is mostly men flexing their muscles in their underwear and then later grappling in tight spandex shorts.

MMA is extremely homoerotic and you idiots have the nerve to gay-bash ???

"I ain't no queer I just like watching half naked sweaty men grapple each other in glorious combat...oh and hot women shouldn't fight each other that sickens me"

Fuck all you homophobes....

I kinda like that Ring won Fukada didn't do jack shit after taking Ring down he's like Nik Lentz 2.0, except that Lentz makes a million excuses after he puts up boring performances. I hate Nik Lentz and hope he gets booted after his first loss, cause he definitely lost to Griffin.

Sounds like someone was pissed his advances were rebuffed. Sorry Panas, you're barking up the wrong tree. Or are you?
