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

[VIDEO] Bas Rutten and Kenny Rice Take Sexist, Curmudgeonly Sports Writer to Task on Inside MMA

We’re not sure why every anti-MMA writer out there feels the need to compare the sport to some form of pornography, but when doing a write-up on the historic UFC 157 event some two weeks ago, OnMilwaukee contributing writer Dave Begel did just that, labeling women’s MMA a “disgrace” before declaring that women should just stick to tennis or golf or some sport that wont immediately be viewed as “some kind of porn” by male audiences nationwide.

Unfortunately, we here at CagePotato only have so much time each day to educate these fools via scathing emails, so you can imagine our excitement when we saw that Bas Rutten and Kenny Rice decided to take Begel to task for us. Although the dynamic Inside MMA duo did their best to try and shake some sense into this stubborn old bastard –bringing up such classic pro-MMA arguing points as “Hey, it’s not as bad as boxing” and “Hey, do you watch the Olympics?” — their words clearly fell on deaf ears.

“I don’t want to defend boxing or judo or Brazilian whatever,” Begel states, in doing so proving that he would totally be prepared to defend any of those sports if given the chance, “MMA is designed to hurt somebody. Boxing is one thing, MMA is another.”

Oh, and on the topic of WMMA? Begel believes that — and we’re paraphrasing here — because some of us men have fantasies about two women going at it, therefore the sport is pornographic in nature. We’re not going to delve into the fact that his “theory” could just as easily be applied to the men’s side of the sport, or wrestling, or couple’s ice skating, etc. Instead, we recommend that if you are seeking more sage-like wisdom of this nature, make sure to pick up Begel’s new book, Research: What Gives? – the follow-up to his groundbreaking bestseller, Women: Where Do They Get Off (And How?) — on Kindle today.

only posting here because Sherdog is banning people from commenting on Fallon Fox's trannyism; women and men should compete MMA with fair regulations according to both sexes, obviously groin strikes arent applicable to female fighters as is titty-twisters to male fighters. But a tranny, born a man, fighting broads is out of hand, thats where i draw the line, you were born a dude, a manly dude at that, then you got some sick fantasy in your head that you could beat up women and be the champ. that's some BS, Juwanna Man shit, and should be banned or there should be a tranny-fight league. Men have more bone density so no matter what hormone he takes he'll still be stronger than his opponent. I call BS and call faggotry on the entire MMA community for backing Shim.

The study that Dave Begel cites claimed to be able to cure gays of homosexuality and was later debunked by Johnson herself and that the findings were completely fabricated.

@SethF "That'll teach those stupid sexy nurses/teachers!"

Okay - I totally read that in the same voice that Homer Simpson says 'stupid, sexy Flanders'. Would you please stop confusing my vaguely disturbing mental image of you already?

I have inappropriate sexual fantasies whenever I eat tunafish sandwiches... you don't even want to hear about what happens when I watch attractive females in tiny skirts scream orgasmically while they jiggle and whack balls back and forth over a net.

Great.. Let's make people from Wisconsin look like idiots. Come on, Begel - you obviously don't want to look at facts. Arguing only about one sport that involves techniques and rules from other similar sports shows how biased and locked into your beliefs you are.

This guy looks like someone who would be walking around a festival, all dressed up from head to toe in a Scottish Kilt, only for the reason of getting attention and hoping that girls would talk to him. This guy is the definition of an un-informed D-bag. We are already doing this guy too many favors buy giving him this much publicity.
RSparrow- March 11, 2013 at 9:47 am
Oh yeah, and this guy can go fuck himself.
SethF- March 11, 2013 at 9:39 am
"Some men may have sexual fantasies about this, which is why it must be banned!"

NEXT STOP, BANNING HOSPITALS AND SCHOOLS! That'll teach those stupid sexy nurses/teachers!

Dumb old bastard, wonder where he got that idea?

On another topic, I would like to see Ronda get "Rowdy" with Gina..........
