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

Sadly, Strikeforce’s Nazi Pedophile Fighter Will Have to Find a New Career

(“Damn, I did Nazi this one coming. Yeah, I know, go fuck myself…”)

Sure, it would have been nice if Strikeforce did a simple Google search to see if Brandon Saling had any skeletons in his closet; even if they looked at one photo of him before last Saturday, they might have noticed that his tattoos were of the “history buff” variety. But now that the truth is out regarding Saling’s past — which includes a 2004 conviction for having sex with a 12-year-old — at least we can be sure that we’ll probably never see this walking-turd compete in sanctioned MMA competition again*.

According to an MMA Weekly report, the Ohio Athletic Commission has revoked Saling’s fight license after last weekend’s event in Columbus for failing to disclose his past criminal background on the licensing application he filled out in February for a previous fight under the NAAFS banner. In addition to being listed as a registered sex offender in the state of Ohio, Saling was also convicted on domestic violence charges stemming from an incident in 2008.

New Jersey State Athletic Control board counsel Nick Lembo also confirmed that their commission has pulled Brandon Saling’s license for “failure to disclose and failure to answer truthfully.” Saling competed twice in New Jersey last year, including a loss to Gregory Milliard on the preliminary card of Bellator 59 in Atlantic City.

Speaking to MMAFighting, Dana White weighed in on the Saling situation: “Obviously this guy is never going to fight for us ever again, and he might not ever fight again. I know he has been suspended by both states and then all these other commissions follow a suspension from other states. And for this guy to ever get licensed again he’d have to go for a hearing for the athletic commissions. I find it hard to believe that this guy will ever be licensed again so he better go find another job.”

* At least in the United States. Saling can always move to Finland, where the Fight Festival promotion still books Niko Puhakka on a regular basis. I’m just saying, it’s an option.

It's a discrace. What kind of example does firing people based on their political affiliations and sexual preferences teach our children about how to act towards their fellow man in these modern times? Won't somebody please think of the children? Someone other than Brandon Saling while masturbating furiously in the bushes outside of a school abviously.

this guy is a pedophile and racist and obviously deserves to be sodomized on a daily basis. however, if you are going to fire someone based on political or former gang affiliation wouldn't king mo be fired too along with a lot of others? he has the pitchfork in the same spot where this dude had his lightning bolts. the pitchfork is for the folk nation. i am thinking gangster disciples.

Make him fight Overeem.............. at a catch weight of 260lbs

Goddamnit. I hate that Puhakka/Valtonen are the well known finnish guys. Doesn't really give a good image about Finland. Unless you are a neo-nazi that is.

As much as I like seeing bad things happen to Nazis, so it is good to see this guy fired, I think Kid Clam Curtains presents an interesting proposition.

We just absolutely ruined a chance to publicly destroy a Nazi on a regular basis. Please rehire him and book him in the most lopsided mismatches ever! I'm not sure what weight this dude fights at, but give him a murderers row of black dudes. Have Manhoef punch his head off his shoulders, and Jacare remove his arm. Seeing Nazi's get destroyed would be the best MMA card ever

You do realize that minority pride is about equality while white pride is about the preservation of superior social status that has been achieved through the degradation of other ethnicities, right? Just making sure.

Thank god I changed my mind before I got this tattoo, or I would never be a professional fighter:

I figured he was a fan of Eric Lindros, with the 88 tat and getting himself concussed. Huh.

Good riddance for sure. Anyone who harms a kid deserves the death penalty in my book. I LOVE the reverse racism in this country. Ex heavy weight champ with a brown pride tattoo and everyone looks away, a white guy showing his pride and he is shunned.

Oh my god pupils. I nearly spit my drink all over my very much so new Keyboard. You sonvabitch that was gold.
Kid Clam Curtains- March 7, 2012 at 2:28 pm
He should be allowed to fight IMO. However, he must fight Palhares and the rules will be modified where you can't tap out. Only way to win is to break off the other fighters limb and sodomizes him with it.

@me likey: is there anyone left at strike force to fire?
cecils_pupils- March 7, 2012 at 2:14 pm
Pedo Bear is pissed about this and was quoted as saying "this guy is a disgrace... we pedophiles are not racist at all - we enjoy children of all colors. Besides, they are all pink on the inside."

Good for everyone
Me likey- March 7, 2012 at 1:38 pm
how could they not see the lightning bolts and 88 on his shoulder? even people who don't really know gang tattoos know what the nazi lightning bolts look like. i wonder how many people got fired at strikeforce for hiring this jack ass.

Chocolate Al still maintains he's marketable.
