Rumor: Was Miguel Torres’s Second UFC Firing *Also* Rape-Joke Related?

(Props: @MiguelTorresMMA via MMAMania)

Well this is just friggin’ unbelievable. If a new report from Dave Meltzer at Wrestling Observer is accurate, Miguel Torres‘s recent UFC re-firing wasn’t due to his knockout loss to Michael McDonald earlier this year. Allegedly, it was due to the same lapse in judgement/humor/decency that got him fired the first time. As Meltzer writes:

The cutting of Miguel Torres was disciplinary in nature although it was not said what the cause was, only that he was cut. His record wasn’t bad, with a knockout loss to Michael McDonald who is going to be a top star (provided his hands don’t keep betraying him as he’s already broken them a couple of times) and a close loss to Demetrious Johnson, both top guys. He made the r*** joke on twitter and was fired, then brought back, and apparently he made some sort of a similar mistake.

The tweet at the top of this post was dug up by MMAMania, who point out that it was sent a couple weeks after the McDonald loss. And while it still hasn’t been confirmed exactly what led to Torres’s latest firing, it’s astounding that he would still be playing with fire like this. For those people who viewed Torres as a victim of over-sensitivity during his first UFC firing, you have to admit that he would have to be the dumbest motherfucker alive to continue making rape jokes after he already lost his job once.

If someone could be literally addicted to making rape jokes — and if such a person exists, it would be Miguel Torres — this would represent a pretty obvious rock bottom, and a sign that he needs help. What the hell, man. Seriously.

To me, this tweet seems more like a tweet against rape, saying that you shouldn't be doing it if they're saying "No, stop or don't". It's people that twist it into a rape joke that make it seem bad, though it is poorly worded.

RSparrow: Awesome
FilmDrunk: It's more about mocking the stupidity of not learning from previous mistakes here, not the level of approval for getting fired for some shit he tweeted. That seems way more potato style to me.

Who says this tweet is even about rape? You could easily interpret this as the same bland, ignoring-the-haters type inspirational bullshit that P. Diddy spouts all day. It's neat how Dana hangs out with actual convicted rapists like Mike Tyson, yet a motherfucking tweet is a fire-worthy offense. And I lose respect for you guys every time you act like that's fucking okay.

I think Torres is a victim of the fact that some funny quotes aren't so funny on twitter ... Especially if you aren't going to use quotations or attribute the quote to the movie/tv show/comedian who said it. What an idiot.

Rape is no laughing matter.... unless it's with a clown.

I got fired once for joking about Dr. Feltersnatch. Fire me once shame on you. Fire me twice shame on me.

Golf clap for Mr_Misanthropy. Quote of the thread!

It's not rape when you jump out of the bushes and yell "Surprise!". It's surprise sex then.

No rape reference here. He is just saying if you do it right there is no need for no, stop etc.
Landulf- August 30, 2012 at 6:26 pm
I think Michael MacDonald knocked all the pattern recognition out of him.

Haven't you been watching the news? Rape is the new contraceptive.

Before or after he attacked Shamrock?

Poor Miguel, fired again for being a parrot and repeating what he hears. That's why toddlers have such a tough time holding down jobs.

Not in Malaysia. Those kids can sew like MoFos. On the cheap too.

Guys, didn’t you read the diatribe by Seth on an earlier article, we should stop bashing fighters and passing judgment on people with our holier than though attitudes, I mean we still cannot confirm whether or not Torres understood why he was fired the first time, maybe he assumed he was fired for joking about vans.
SethF- August 30, 2012 at 8:00 pm
No one reads my articles, bro. You've been here long enough to know that.

If you need a hug Seth, I am here for ya brother :)

Dont if this makes it any better but that line comes from How High where methodman is telling redman Harvard bitches are stuck up and the only words they know are, stop, no and don't. Redman says something like they should be saying, no dont stop! This is Jenna Jameso's pussy loosely translated from memory.
