Regrettable Tweet of the Day: Conor McGregor Calls Dennis Siver a Nazi


(Screencap via BloodyElbow)

While many of the UFC stars in attendance at yesterday’s The Time Is Now press conference treated the event as one big love fest, Irish featherweight star Conor McGregor was in no mood to play nice. Shortly after his public face-off with upcoming opponent Dennis Siver, he sent the unfortunate tweet you see above, which he deleted afterwards.

Though Siver is of German descent, he was actually born and raised in Russia, giving him a unique mix of Axis and Allied heritage. (I’m sure he’s very conflicted about his place in history.) Still, referring to a German man as a “Nazi” just because he’s German…not cool, Conor. They’re still really sensitive about that sort of thing over there.

Likely motivated by an angry phone call from the UFC brass, Conor then sent out this semi-apology: “Ich bin ein sowwy. Now about them feet…

Props to Conor McGregor for staying on message during his forced retraction. But seriously dude — what is it with you and feet?

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.

Don’t Worry, Guys: Silver Star Has Already Discontinued Their Nazi Shirt

A year after Zuffa banned Hoelzer Reich as a fighter sponsor due to their uncomfortably Nazi-ish t-shirt designs, another apparel company is under scrutiny for a potentially offensive symbol. As first spotted by WRESTLENOW on the UG, Clay Guida appeared in a recent Fight! Magazine video wearing a Silver Star shirt featuring a totenkopf. Translated to "skull of a dead man," the totenkopf symbol has been used in the German military since the Prussian army of the 18th century, but it is most closely associated with the Nazi SS – especially the particular version shown above, in which the totenkopf is shown in half-profile – and is currently favored by Neo-Nazis
