[VIDEO] Bob Arum Accurately Sums Up the Marijuana in Combat Sports Debate in One Profanity-Laden Rant


(…and don’t even get me started on that damned Bubonic plague business.) 

We’ve talked a lot about marijuana in MMA around here lately, mainly as a result of the recent statements made by UFC VP of regulatory affairs Marc Ratner, who declared that Dave Herman might be forced to undergo a rehabilitation program following his second positive test for cannabis in just four fights at UFC 153. Simply put, Ratner’s belief (although he didn’t state it outright) that marijuana was a bigger concern to the various athletic commission governing the sport than that of PED’s, is a load of horseshit. Pure, unadulterated, horseshit.

Enter boxing promoter Bob Arum, a dusty old geezer with an intellect rivaled only by garden tools who feels that the sport of MMA is rampant with homosexual skinheads that couldn’t throw a punch to save their life. He’s not exactly phone-a-friend material if you catch our drift. But when it was revealed that Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. had tested positive for marijuana following his unanimous decision loss to Sergio Martinez on September 15th, fans and members of the media alike were anxious to see how Arum would react to it.

Simply put, his response would have made Dana White proud.

As Bob told FightHub:

I’m sorry that it happened, that he tested positive, but I’m not going to condemn a kid for smoking a joint a month before a fight to go to sleep. What the fuck is happening? I mean, let’s be real about it, let’s not be hypocrites about it.

Performance enhancing drugs, that’s wrong. Smoking a joint a month before a fight, take a poll here, what kind of percentage do you think of people [have] smoked a joint in the last month? So let’s be fuckin’ real!

Even more revealing than that, Arum told ESPN in an interview that took place shortly after the news broke that, “I can’t really get excited about it. There’s no promoter in boxing who could pass the marijuana test, including myself.”

Wait, so not only is Bob Arum way more in touch with current affairs than we previously determined, but now he’s the hip grandparent who blazes up with the best of us?

I’m sorry, I can’t resist.

Somebody should warn Bob that marijuana cigarettes are a gateway drug. He could easily slide down the slippery slope and end up selling his ass on a corner to support his vicious crystal meth habit and pay off his homosexual skinhead pimp.

You are so right about Arum CP, I mean Harvard? Are they even an accredited University?

@Pen Fifteen - What the fuck are you talking about? All I was doing was pointing out was that there were multiple interpretations on Ratner's decision and nowhere commented on whether I thought that the action was acceptable. All I was stating was a different principle that Ratner could have been grounding his decision in. What fucking planet are you from where it's fine to make shit up and say people wrote something when they clearly didn't? O right, the Internet, forgot.

One of them was Chavez Jr. and well, one of them was Dave Herman. Furthermore, Taters, I wouldn't be the least bit suprised to learn that both of them habitually smoke marijuana cigarettes... REEFER!

I wish I had more hands, so I could give this comment FOUR THUMBS UP!

Do alcohol kids. It's better for you and it is NOT illegal. Also, smoke cigarettes.
Really is the USA ruled by some fucking ape?

What's that? What the hell is a Obama?

Bob's internal monologue: Dana has been doing so well, it must because he swears a lot. I should give it a go.

Arum isn’t really the voice of reason; he just has a mean case of glaucoma that can only be cured by creating an equally mean case of the munchies

@Sloppyspray
So just because someone thinks something is true, that makes any action they follow according to that principle acceptable? What fucking planet are you from? If I told you I thought my neighbor was an evil space alien so I decided to kill him, do you think a court of law would acquit me?

Marijuana is hands-down the least likely of any "drug of abuse" to form dependence among its users. This is not even a matter of debate.

@J.Jones - Agreed, but the science still isn't out as to whether its the steroids that are addictive or DA PUMP!! I mean it feels like your cumming, so I've been told. And thanks for the advice! haha
Zescape- November 8, 2012 at 9:08 am
When Bob Arum becomes the voice of reason, something must be seriously fucked up.
Sloppyspray- November 8, 2012 at 8:55 am
To be fair, what you say about Ratner's actions/treatment of Herman is no more than your interpretation on the matter. Another logical interpretation would be that he thinks marijuana is addictive and steroids are not, thus marijuana use necessitating a rehab program and steroids not.
