Rising Welterweight Star Marius Zaromskis Signs With Strikeforce


(All hail the new Cro Cop. Props: lqdocelot19)

Dream Welterweight Grand Prix champion Marius Zaromskis — who recently scored his third-straight first-round head-kick knockout at Dream.12 — has signed a multi-fight contract with Strikeforce, according to Sherdog. The 29-year-old Lithuanian will still be able to compete in Dream, but could make his U.S. debut at Strikeforce’s December 19th event in San Jose. As you can see on Strikeforce.com’s fighters section, Zaromskis’s awesome but slightly-racially-tinged nickname "The Whitemare" has been changed to the more generic (but still appropriate) "Raging Demon."

It’s a fantastic pickup for Strikeforce, which has been basically waiting for Nick Diaz to get his shit together before they can crown somebody their welterweight champ, to the great disgust of Jay Hieron. Now, Zaromskis can take on Hieron for the vacant belt if Diaz continues to act squirrelly, or kick the crap out of someone like Joe Riggs to establish himself in America first. More to come…

Oh shit, I'm glad I checked back here... 831, you're the type of guy at the family reunion who has to awkwardly explain why he still doesn't have a girlfriend. You know, the type of guy that says, "none that I know about (nudge, nudge)" when asked if you have kids... a real Travis Bickle.

Maybe you could ask out Cletus reddog, that cat has to be single. You guys could talk about the plight of the modern uneducated, disempowered, racist, American white male.

Yea you worthless little fag Bleve. Shut the fuck up you dumb fucking mexican. Ive been tearing apart pussy since I was 13 you little girl. Your sorry ass only has a so called "education" about mexicans going for you, you stupid troll. No one gives a shit you loser, Cain is a fucking faggot with dumb ass fans backing him only because of him being a typical mexican. If you had the balls to say something like that in the real world (not on internet), You would get fucking smashed.

@ reddog- NICE.

reddog- November 2, 2009 at 3:02 pm
That's right. No one cares about spic history on an mma forum. Stop being a troll and arguing the nuances of gang logos vs. a philosophical statement. No one gives a fuck.
bleve- November 2, 2009 at 2:24 pm
I would never say I'm better than anyone... more educated, yes, I do believe I'm more educated and smarter than a bunch of people using racial slurs without any clue as to a historical perspective and an obvious insecurity about their identity.

When I tried to educate, I got - "@Bleve, no one gives a fuck about spic history."

@bleve

This is how hurting you are man that you have to resort to assuming you know about random people on the internet. Telling them you know of their education level or their childhood or even what languages they know. This shows that you are an asshole.

You want to point the finger and say we are all racist but you are the one who is saying that its not okay to have "white pride" because your only knowledge of white history is of nazi's. This shows that you are ignorant.

If you want to play the race card and try to speak for your "people" as a whole then try to be less of a fuck up and try to educate people instead of assuming you are better or that another person is better because they are a color or more educated. This is exactly what your "people" are probably fighting against day to day. Here you are spreading it around.

fuck off

Suuuure you have a master's Cletus. The "No Fear" tattoo jab hit a little too close to home? They say ignorance is bliss but you sound frustrated and miserable... "they tirrrkk errrr JERRRBBSS!"
reddog- November 2, 2009 at 1:50 pm
@bleve
Everything you say is wrong. I have a Masters Degree fuckface. You are a biggoted little wetback. Fuck your cultural elitism.
Hmmm..so you mean to tell me I was cheated out of a proper education because I didn't have spic background 101? Please.
bleve- November 2, 2009 at 12:34 pm
@reddog: Its taught in college... ever heard of it Cletus? Let me guess, you have a "No Fear" tattoo and blame all the minorities for your pathetic lot in life.
reddog- November 2, 2009 at 12:15 pm
@Bleve, no one gives a fuck about spic history. It's taught nowhere due to the unimportance. Mexican and chicano...isn't that redundant? You sound just like kkk and black panther douches...."my people" bullshit.

The whitemare is a stellar name. Brownmare doesn't cut it, neither does meximare. I wanna see him headkick someone hispanic.
bleve- November 2, 2009 at 11:56 am
Well K.E.G., the internet and books are great for researching something before assuming and making yourself look ignorant. Brown Pride, whether its acceptable or not, has historical roots in the farm labor movement and the Chicano movement of the '60s and '70s, its called a precedent. The only precedent for the term White Pride are neo-nazi skinhead groups.

How is CV a walking stereotype? He's college educated, an all-american athlete and perfectly fluent in two languages... three traits I would wager you don't have. His family is from Mexico... meaning he has cultural ties to Mexico. You're another example of America's failed public school system... and most likely bad parenting.
K.E.G.- November 2, 2009 at 11:37 am
@Bleve,
I don't really give two shits if it's gang related or not that's just something I heard and was curious about. Either way just as white pride would be meaningless in itself why is brown pride acceptable. I mean his family is not from Brownland or Brownico or anything like that. While Cain is a good fighter (witch I hate to admit, I was hoping Rothwell would kill him). He is a walking stereotype and a bad one at that. Everyone hates how Marcus Davis is proud of his Irish heritage just because he's not from there. Cain wasn't born in Mexico so he's no more Mexican then Marcus Davis is irish. There both fucking tools, I'll be it American tools, but tools none the less.

As someone who's studied Chicano history, Brown Pride is not affiliated with a gang... a gang may have adopted that saying, but that is not where it originates... it originates with the civil rights movement. It's affiliated with Mexican and Chicano culture... what would White Pride be a representation of? What exactly is white culture? Now there's Irish Pride and German Pride and Scottish Pride and there's not a damn thing wrong with those.

831 Son... I'm absolutely positive you never get laid.

831 Son- November 2, 2009 at 9:52 am
Cain and his little faggot fans are all idiots. They only like him because he is Mexican. How stupid can you be just to back someone solely on their race? Just shows how dumb they are.
DaltonSwayze- November 2, 2009 at 9:49 am

bleve, I didn't say it was affiliated with a gang, but that it seems awfully suspicious, and it's kind of my right to pick and choose with PPVs to buy, you know?

You don't think whitemare is a cool nickname? It's a lot better than a lot of the one's I've heard, but hey to each his own.

Any ethnic pride is a form of racism, if you ask me.
hotsaucemonster- November 2, 2009 at 9:42 am
@bleve
brown pride is affiliated with a gang although i dont CV has anything to do with it
Daoulas- November 2, 2009 at 9:38 am
@bleve You're an idiot.

First Whitemare is a fucking awesome nick name and if you were able to do the shit this kid can do maybe you could earn yourself one that is half as cool.

Brown Pride seems kinda racial. If brock lesnar had a tattoo on his chest that was "white pride" instead of a giant wiener you might then understand.

p.s. glen beck sucks

the only brown pride i have is when i drop a huge dump in my toilet and im surprised my body could even hold that much shit
bleve- November 2, 2009 at 9:33 am
@DaltonSwayze... you're an idiot.

First, 'Whitemare' is a retarded ass nickname, not because its racially tinged but simply because its retarded.

The term 'Brown Pride' is not affiliated with a gang and shows your ignorance and bias.

You won't buy a ppv because a guy has brown pride tattoo? I'm sure you boycott fights with guys who have Irish tattoos too eh? Turn off the Glenn Beck once and awhile.
831 Son- November 2, 2009 at 9:27 am
God damnit why the fuck didnt the UFC pick Marius up. Fuckers. That dude is savage as fuck.

@DaltonSwayze
Agreed. Isn't that some sort of gang?

He claims it isn't a gang thing and that it's just ethnic pride, but I'm pretty skeptical about it, myself. I won't buy PPVs with him on them, to be honest.

Yeah, I know, Zuffa doesn't give a fuck about my $50, but a man's gotta have principles.
hotsaucemonster- November 2, 2009 at 8:02 am
im pumped to see this guy up against some real competition, he did lose twice to a guy that couldn't even win a spot on TUF though it was against wilks,

@DaltonSwayze

^ I couldn't agree more!
DaltonSwayze- November 2, 2009 at 7:10 am
I think we all need to get over ourselves, because Whitemare is a sick nickname, and definitely less offensive than a Brown Pride tattoo
G Funk- November 2, 2009 at 7:10 am
This guy is badass! he's pretty ruthless though... to keep punching and kicking your opponent after he's out like he fucked you wife, mom, sis & owed you money is hard core!
K.E.G.- November 2, 2009 at 6:26 am
this could potentially be awesome. Lets give him Jay Heiron and Nick Diaz and find out if this dude is for real. While a Dream Grand Prix title is impressive, allot of these Japanese stars just can't compete in the states. And what about this Che Mills guy, does anyone anything about him.
