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

SI Writer & CBS Analyst Seth Davis Hates MMA, Loves Homophobia

Sports Illustrated writer and CBS analyst Seth Davis may have gotten himself in a little hot water yesterday in a particularly 21st century way — being an idiot on twitter. Evidently Davis is not a fan of mixed martial arts and he used some good old-fashioned homophobia to make his point.

One tweet from Davis’ @SethDavisHoops account Sunday read (props to Stephen Douglas of TheBigLead);

Looking on news sites showing picture of two muscular bloody men in homoerotic fighting pose….Sorry, I’ll never get this UFC thing.

We can’t imagine what kind of trauma Davis may have sustained that makes the CBS personality have erotic thoughts while watching two men covered in blood hitting each other, but we are truly sorry for any pain that the writer has to live with.

Another similarly idiotic tweet of Davis’ read:

Maybe I’m a prude on this but I’m also a dad. I don’t mind my sons watching boxing, but I wouldn’t want them watching a UFC bout. — Seth Davis (@SethDavisHoops) 

We have no idea if Davis is a prude but he is evidently scared of gay people. Let’s connect the dots. Davis watches two fighters compete and confuses it for gay sexual relations. So, the UFC is gay and because of this, he does not like the UFC.

Also, given that the UFC is so gay, he will not, can not, approve of his sons watching it. Let’s assume that Georges St. Pierre and Carlos Condit were, as Davis believes, getting erotic with one another Saturday night at UFC 154 instead of competing against one another in a sport. Seth, neither you nor your kids can catch gay by watching gay people. Your sons could, however, pick up some practical life skills from watching and practicing the martial arts and self-defense techniques on display at UFC events.

Like many cowardly morons before him, Davis has appeared to have deleted those tweets from his account. He may not want his sons watching MMA but he probably wants to still be able to make a living to support them.

No word yet on if CBS or SI has taken disciplinary action against Davis. If they do, we suggest some education and sensitivity training be a part of it. Perhaps a few hours locked in a room watching video of MMA fights while Georges St. Pierre and Roger Huerta sit on either side of him in nothing but their old-school tight fight shorts, painting each one another’s nails.

Maybe he is right....maybe all this ninja black-belt aikido stuff is gay.....

They should just have gun fights so that way we dont have to see 2 men touch each other.

Being homophobic is the new racist. Somehow it's less evil but just as dumb.
What a great way to embarrass your kids in front of theirs closeted or not gay friends (we all have gay friends we just may not never know about it).

Denial. The river? Heh, no sirs.

Never mind the fact football, and baseball players shower together, and pat each other on the ass. And I would LOVE to see him call Thiago Silva gay.

No wonder he works for CBS. His eyes are so close together that if you squint he looks like a cyclops. A big gay cyclops.

I agree with 'The Librarian'. Your writing should be way gay-er.

Holy shit, SI. Still exists?

In his defense, his only exposure this week could have been the Tom Lawlor and Seth Sumo Wrestling. Then these tweets would make perfect sense.

Sorry, you will never get to have sex with a woman for free either! And you will never "get" why that is.

I think CBS should fire him unless he's willing to meet with Condit and GSP in person, tell them exactly what he tweeted and not run away immediately afterwards.

Elias - Your comeback was priceless!
Sniffer-Piffits- November 19, 2012 at 1:54 pm
I think its obvious that this man gives himself the Rear Naked Choke with a belt while he punches his munchkin and then fires off some Knuckle children onto an SI cover of the Little League World Series issue.... Sicko...

Twitter is fantastic. It constantly enables/exposes these fucking morons who are public figures. These impulsive tweets are always a dousey and then they scamper off to delete it all quick. As stupid as the message may be, way to convey your personal believes with conviction, fucking dumb pussies hahahaha so good.

This writer, while correct, is terrible. I've witnessed more passion in a Jenna Jameson outtake.

For the fuck of shit, Cepeda, write with some fire in your belly. I bet when you tell your girlfriend you love her you almost make eye contact.

Porn has outtakes? Talk about redefining the term "Gag Reel."

This is true. But when I make love to yours I make sure our eyes stay locked
The Librarian- November 19, 2012 at 1:50 pm
I seriously doubt that, bro. One must be love before making it, you dig? And you just don't have the spark.
The12ozCurls- November 19, 2012 at 1:37 pm
Nothing new here. Seth Davis has always been a douche.
Maine Blazer- November 19, 2012 at 1:33 pm
Also: what's so gay about a grown man shouting at other guys, "let me bang bro! I just wanna bang!"
Maine Blazer- November 19, 2012 at 1:31 pm
He is smiling because he has a dildo stuck in his ass.
