Not good enough, he shouldn’t get his job back. He’s a tasteless cocky idiot.

idgaf Says, in 12-29-2011 at 09:09:35 from    

yea right he should have never been fired. These guys are fighters not professors at a uni.

good for miguel. good for dana.it was a stupid mistake.

Dana being Dana. His words mean nothing. Never should have cut Torres in the first place. Now that the UFC is becoming more mainstream, it is time for Dana to go wayyyy behind the scenes and let a professional be the executive face of the company. Some one that doesn’t speak like a 12 year old on the wrong meds.

He quoted a show. 1st amendment rights? Sue the UFC. =-)

hahaha, Dana is a prick. Made a hasty decision and now is trying to save face :))

Forrest screwed up and volunteered at a r*** center, so it was only natural that MT get his job back after paying the price. The only reason he got cut was that he’s a smaller draw than Forrest and Rashad. Still, these guys need to realize that they’re public figures now, and they need to use their heads more.

@VisionQuest-the first Amendment protects you from the Government, not your Employer. That’s what it actually says and means.

Torres made himself and the UFC look like s***-heads…then he did what was right and learned the error of his ways and was forgiven…what’s the problem?

@metalheaddw05 you shouldn’t be able to watch mma because you have no sense of humour…according to your logic

@metalheaddw05 I bet ur a Chael Sonnen fan…dumb ass

he should have sued for racism, as griffin (white) and rashad (black) said/texted worse things and never had to do s***

Windowless was replace by.r.a.p.e van..so the quote is wrong.Hence the classes.
Good move for everyone involved but Torres doesn’t have much of a chance now so the less he talks the better.Time will tell when he steps into the octagon again and the reaction from fans.

No one made a mistake except for Torres..all finger point to Torres.He quoted a show..but it was said out of his mouth.Stop watching too many Mexican movies.

torres found out how to get his ‘get out of jail free’ card

bigtigger Says, in 12-29-2011 at 13:43:22 from    

Dana made a good decision on both counts. Yes some fighters are obviously testosterone dripping machines, but it doesn’t mean they need to talk like twelve year children to the world. Maybe Torres needed to be sensitized and understand that the subject he is joking about is a real problem. Most idiots cant relate and for the most part don’t care. As far as letting him back in the UFC I think it’s good he will think twice before talking like a dumb ass.

sammy Says, in 12-29-2011 at 13:47:00 from    

LOL bunch of BS to begin with anyways. They are fighters, not supposed to be role models. It’s not their fault everybody who is on TV gets looked at as a potential role model in America. The system is wrong.

sammy Says, in 12-29-2011 at 13:48:06 from    

that being said it is a private business and Dana is part owner and can run it any way he sees fit.

Sweetlander Says, in 12-29-2011 at 15:49:41 from    

Dana was hasty yes, but has given the guy a chance. He sent a message to the rest of the fighters with this too. The narrow minded people on MMATKO showed up to comment today I guess.

marvelous mad madam mim Says, in 12-30-2011 at 04:09:40 from    

Wait so he never even said “r*** van” he only said “windowless van”? I guess Dana is seriously under Fox’ fascist thumb then. I cannot wait for a fighter union to me made, Dana will lose almost all his power. I wanna see him squirm lol.

marvelous mad madam mim Says, in 12-30-2011 at 04:11:43 from    

Why is r-a-p-e censored? I don’t get it.

steamer Says, in 12-30-2011 at 04:53:01 from    

what a load of s***. who cares if he did all that. he never should have lost his job in the first place. fuckU for that UFC. this guy is a legend in his own time and a pillar of his community. who cares if he made a tasteless joke? when you want him to be a spokesperson pay him for it. when you want him to be a fighter leave him alone and let him live his life. that’s how I fell.

steamer Says, in 12-30-2011 at 05:05:25 from    

I feel like an ass for having misspelled “feel”, but seriously, I feel the need to elaborate. In any other major sports organization if you want to make an example of an athlete you fine them and/or suspend them but to flat out fire them is almost unheard of. You would really have to cross some lines to get just flat out dismissed like that. That was too much Dana. Miguel made a tasteless joke which honestly would have just got skimmed over by yours truly, cuz really it aint even all that funny. I can see the UFC wanting to distance themselves from such topics, but I honestly think this is something personal to warrant such a harsh reaction from the brass. UFC…you guys came out looking like a******* on this one.

Stupid bullshit anyway if people follow him on twitter they know he is constantly joking basically everything he tweets is something silly as far as joking but low and behold somebody took it out of context and and got offended by somebody they don’t even know.Just goes to show how MMA is media driven now and Dana is showing his control and making examples for no reason.His donations,etc are not genuine anyway because he only did it because Dana his daddy made him for public image but would he had done it if he was not fired? No because he was god damn joking so F*** Dana,F*** the media,and I am just about to say F*** MMA in general with its pro wrestling overtones and politically correctness.I mean god damn if u don’t like what somebody says then why in the god damn F*** are you doing watching them following them on twitter and the god damn list goes on and on.When I say F*** the media I don’t mean MMA heat because she is the only positive person in the media she like to focus on positive s*** that is current not something negative that happened 10 f***** years ago like that long nose m***********.He looks like a god damn peterbuilt with that long ass nose.

Now that UFC is becoming more mainstream, Fertita needs to speak more than Dana. He talks way more professionally

yupyup Says, in 12-30-2011 at 17:34:29 from    

who gives a F*** anyways,. mma fans watch them to fight, not to see what they have to say,.
