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

OK, So Maybe Badr Hari Did Have Something to Do With that Nightclub Beating

(“Absolutely 100 percent not guilty, your honor.” PicPros:

Prepare to have everything you thought you knew about Badr Hari shaken to its very foundation: As it turns out, the K-1 kickboxing bad boy just maybe, possibly, allegedly did have a hand in a February assault that left a nightclub bouncer with a fractured eye socket, a broken nose, and the impending possibility of a metal plate in his head.

In the immediate wake of the incident outside an Amsterdam bar, Hari said through his attorney that he "’denied having anything to do with (it)’ and said that if the police did have any evidence, they should summon him." Well, consider that bluff summarily called this week as Amsterdam police did in fact summon Hari along with three other men for questioning regarding the assault. Only problem was, Hari himself was nowhere to be found and the latest report from Headkick Legend indicated that a midweek deadline for the fighter to turn himself in to authorities came and went without the 6-foot-5, 230-pounder showing his face.

The nightclub assault allegedly occurred after the doorman turned the men away from a party spot in the city’s Leidseplein district because their attire did not meet the establishment’s dress code. Reports indicate Hari himself was wearing a tracksuit, which may have caused the issue with the bouncer.

“Sometimes the pressures of being one of the best in the world is a bit much too (sic) handle,” Headkick Legend exclaims with the opening line of its latest piece, apparently seeking to explain that the stress and strain of Hari’s tepid fame and meager fortune eventually grew to be too much for him and he had to blow off some steam by beating the holy hell out of the guy working the door at the corner bar. Not because, you know, he’s just kind of an asshole.

It should be reiterated that Hari has not yet been charged with a crime and is, at this point, simply wanted for questioning. Certain facts of the case still need to be resolved. I mean, a European dude trying to go out clubbing in a tracksuit? I simply refuse to believe that. 

Either way, this latest brush with the law is another blow in what is rapidly beginning to look like an unwinnable war for Hari’s public image. The K-1 organization came down hard on the former champ in 2008 after he was disqualified in the final match of the World Grand Prix for stomping on Remy Bonjasky’s head. The promotion has also tried to take other steps to improve Hari’s reputation, though he was again DQed last month when he kicked downed opponent Hesdy Gerges at an event in Amsterdam.

Badr is a blockhead. Seriously.

Hey DillDozer,

Glad to see that you've discovered the power of ad hominem attacks. I'm sure you're right that people pointing out racism has actually done more harm than racism itself, as if that made any fucking sense. I guess unless someone were to call Hari a dirty camel-fucking raghead, it doesn't count as racism? You ought to try reading a book some time, you redneck cocksucker. (Ad hominem attacks rule!)

The only thing badder than Badr Hari is that bad-ass unibrow that refuses to quit. I bet he has to split it in half twice daily.

@drano: know your meme. Google search "fucking magnets." Basically, I'm comparing your intelligence level to that of rapping clowns.
I'm not sure why exactly you have decided to pick me out of your ass, and attack me with your stupidity, BUT anyone who quotes from insane clown possee, isn't the sharpest tool in the shed.
Here , let me help you on your way mr. knee jerk.... GO EAT A BAG OF DICKS!
And remember this always....I will always be cooler than you, and I could probably steal your girlfriend....mother...and your sister all at once.
Didn't I mention you sound like your nick is failing-ovulation? yeaaa still does.

Whilst I do not in any way condone Badr Hari's actions and feel bad for that bouncer, I have witnessed consistently bad behaviour form bouncers in the UK. This includes hitting women for no worthy reason (is there ever?).

I've seen a guy knocked out cold on concrete because he was trying to stop a fight between the bouncer and another dude. In this situation the other dude was pissed because the barman took his drinks order, took the money gave him his drink and told him to "get the fuck out because I wanna go off and get drunk", literally within seconds of giving him the drinks. The guy said "Let me finish my drink first!" and the barman spat in his face and pushed him. Naturally all hell broke loose and the bouncer outside spotted his opportunity and literally started swinging at anyone leaving the bar.

You hear a lot of stories and I've even talked to bouncers (one of which was a JKD instructor) who say that they bounce because they wanna beat people up on the weekend. On top of that I know a guy who bounced for a bit who said most of the bouncers were violent ex-cons.

That's bouncers in England and I've experienced some pretty bad ones in Belgium too (next to Holland). So it is completely within the realm of possibility that this bouncer started it and Badr doesn't know how to back down.

Of course Badr has a bad record when it comes to these things

This guy doesn't even deserve a minute of MMA news. He is worthless and a ghinder piece of shit. He is not an MMA fighter.

To all the people saying they rarely meet a pleasant bouncer, or that it's a good thing a bouncer was beat up....You're dumb. Of course you've never met a pleasant bouncer...You only "met" them when you're being a douchebag...and at the time, you're you're being an "asshole" they put you in a headlock and show you the door....That doesn't make them unpleasant, it means they're doing their job. Maybe you shouldn't have been acting like a 17 year old who can't handle his alcohol in public.

Dude - This fucker has more issues than Marvel Comics. I'm pretty sure that even a little redneck cracka-ass-cracka like Junie Browning could fight, but I think that the gene pool would be much better off if he sat in a nice warm bath and cut with the veins.

I worked in nightlife promotion, and while I don't know what it's like on the other side of the pond, more often than not people who go to a club/lounge/bar in NYC are utter fucking douchebags. If you're working the door, and you see that every friggin' night, you're not likely to assume that people are gonna be better than Badr "Durka Durka" Hari and Jesse "Jizz Tongue" Taylor.

And while I love Italians, it's the fucking guinea-ass guido wop gindaloon ginzo dago thugs that gotta go. I'm looking at you, Phil "Finnoch" Baroni.

I believe the term for people like you is "a motherfucking idiot"

This is the problem with society today. It's full of cocksuckers screaming 'racism' when they don't know what the fuck that even means.
Las, listen here you dirty fag, go stick you dick in a meatgrinder and never reproduce.

To be fair, Hari is one of the best stand-up strikers in the world. He’s awesome. However, he obviously has some issues.

Also, he beat up a bouncer? Good on him. Very rarely do I meet a pleasant/polite bouncer. They’re usually of the same mould; thickly set, arrogant buffoons who like to intimidate. Well, the ones in the UK are.
fatbellyfrank- June 7, 2010 at 6:14 am
^ please forgive my friend, I believe the term he was looking for was " wannabe Jersey Shore douchebag guido " I'm pretty sure that's what he meant anyway

Wop is a racist term. Not cool!

At least he does a proper Stockton Hey Buddy... i'll give him credit for that.

“Sometimes the pressures of being one of the best in the world is a bit much too (sic) handle," yep, especially when your as insanely famous as .... who the fuck is this guy again?
Seoul Brother- June 6, 2010 at 3:58 pm
Aside from what this guy looks like or where he's from, he's just another cocksucker who started a fight with a bouncer. I know bouncers in NYC. More often than not, these are not the kind of people you want to fuck with, and one of my buddies actually competes in MMA. He's hospitalized cockbags before, and if you start shit with a bouncer, claiming "self-defense" is pretty fucking weak. Especially if you're a pompous cunt with combat sports experience.

Now if you're wearing a track suit and you demand entry to a club because you're Badr "Muthafuckin" Hari, AND you duck out of a date with the police, you stand to face felony douchebag charges.

I thought K-1 was what German Shepherds were considered when they begin their K-9 training at doggy college. I like it when animals have a practical purpose to serve almost as much as I like watching them wear funny hats.

Is that greasy wop looking guy in the photo throwing up some kind of gang sign? I bet he's reppin' da 209.
dranokills- June 6, 2010 at 1:27 pm
ohh you damn rank ass amateur racists step aside and let show you how it's done: AHEM...." you fucking terrorist looking, ragheaded, 3rd world monkey horse-cock eater...fehh I hope a jewish cripple rapes you in a jail cell after duct taping your balls to the latrine!"

and on another note:
sorry can't get worked up, until now I never knew this guy existed.
2DaDeath- June 6, 2010 at 1:21 pm
So someone beat down a bouncer? Good. I hate those fags. I wish Badr Hari and Overeem would go clubbing in my area.
Mr_Misanthropy- June 6, 2010 at 1:16 pm
Who's this Bobbi Hater fella you guys are all worked up about? Is he some kind of cross-dressing professional wrestler from Yugoslavia or something? Is he the Eastern European Closed Cage Broken Light Bulbs, Brass Tacks, and Rusty Barb Wire Champion (EECCBLBBTRBWC) ? I'm confuse.
EvilScott- June 6, 2010 at 1:09 pm
I'm a racist? Awesome. I guess I'm in good company since Badr is too - he lists his own nationality as Moroccan.

...come to think of it being in the same category as Hari isn't necessarily a good thing.

I've been in bar fights with security and I'm neither dutch nor a kickboxer. Some of those club bouncers have a real attitude problem, saw a man killed in front of me at a club in Honolulu by a bouncer who held a choke too long. I think its more about the type of places they go for recreation. American fighters go to bars where you can fight other bar guys (see Chuck Liddell), whereas in clubs you are mostly stuck fighting with the security. Cause you know if you get drunk you have to fight somebody or how will you get the media to talk about you?

This random baseless theory brought to you by the corporation for public douhebagery and viewers like you.
