tonysnow Says, in 12-8-2011 at 21:36:25 from    

he wasn’t really doing that well either

Ibunn Says, in 12-8-2011 at 21:38:14 from    

Goodbye ufc, hello bellator!

bo-jangles Says, in 12-8-2011 at 21:39:06 from    

this was on the tv show “always sunny in philidelphia!” which ironically is on FX which is what ufc will be having their fights on from now on lol. forest griffin said a joke way worse than this and nothing was said. Dana white is a bitch point blank. ufc = the new wwe.

mpicc Says, in 12-8-2011 at 21:39:09 from    

Either you keep them both are let both of them go. Watched the Evans video. r*** and child molestation are areas professional athletes can’t go for jokes. Public figures are held to higher standards, like it or not.

fightdontbefake Says, in 12-8-2011 at 21:40:32 from    

this is retarded, no need for cutting a fighter for this…and the only reason rashad doesnt get cut is becuz he pulls in as a main event, aka makes more money for them, torres does not, so they could give two shits less about him

RandyIsStillChamp Says, in 12-8-2011 at 21:43:41 from    

hes a legend IMO deserves more respect

james Says, in 12-8-2011 at 21:49:57 from    

really, cut for a post on twitter. seems a bit crasy to me. how can you judge over one statement like that. it’s not like hes being acused of r*** and lots of fighters say crazy s*** sometimes. I wonder if they would’ve cut chael sonnen if he tweeted the same thing.

MMAGiantSilva Says, in 12-8-2011 at 21:56:03 from    

Thats just retarded and I am not even a fan.

Powertele Says, in 12-8-2011 at 21:57:29 from    

Yes, when things like this occur, it is just grounds for your employers to let you go because they were looking for a reason. Torres gave it to them.

Shaikan Says, in 12-8-2011 at 22:06:48 from    

I do find cutting him from the UFC because of that comment to be an over reaction. Come on Sonnen, Diaz, Koshchek, and even Dana have said things equally bad if not worst.

PeterParker Says, in 12-8-2011 at 22:08:05 from    

I f***** hate surprises

idgaf Says, in 12-8-2011 at 22:12:32 from    

what a hypocrite.

Oldassgrappler Says, in 12-8-2011 at 22:12:33 from    

Hard to believe that this is true. Pretty weak if you ask me!

jballer Says, in 12-8-2011 at 22:20:08 from    

DAMN. Fine the guy, suspend him perhaps, but geez. Making jokes about sexual assault is malicioous and distasteful, not funny. Making r*** jokes on Twitter is downright stupid. but hell, this guy’s fairly young, i’m taking a hardline here.

Reminds me of when they cut Babalu for holding on a choke too long. I call bullshit. Bellator should pick Torres up.

jballer Says, in 12-8-2011 at 22:21:52 from    

& @bo-jangles: good call. If it’s alright for actors on an FX show to do, FX now a partner of the UFC, it should be at best tolerable in this instance.

julian moran Says, in 12-8-2011 at 22:33:04 from    

Dana White and Joe Rogan themselves have said worst things. Obviously it was a (bad) joke.
What about Chael Sonnen talking s*** about Brazilians etc making racist remarks at every press conference and interview? Is that not worse?

GetSome Says, in 12-8-2011 at 22:35:10 from    

I used to like this guy as a fighter. Read his twitter account and you will turn on him. The guy is a POS. Just a complete idiot. Maybe he was intoxicated when he wrote that stuff, I have no idea. He is a POS and deserved it. Freedom of speech all you want, if I wrote that stuff I wouldn’t have a job. He lost his, which was the correct decision.

Spend 5 minutes reading his account. Just pathetic.

Sunfish Hero Says, in 12-8-2011 at 22:37:20 from    

Lame excuse for a firing. Pretty sure Dana White uses harsher language on a regular basis. Torres was probably released because he was expensive and hasn’t been doing that well.

Oh well, maybe this what he needs. Some time on the regional circuit or in Bellator. God knows he needs to fight more often.

Mexguit Says, in 12-8-2011 at 22:50:24 from    

Well, that’s messed up! I’m not going to pay a dime to watch UFC fights anymore! I’ll be watching them here thanks to Bruno!

Yoda123 Says, in 12-8-2011 at 23:05:13 from    

F*** the UFC

Dana says worse s*** than that!

ace Says, in 12-8-2011 at 23:11:33 from    

Rashad’s comment was way worse than this joke. Evans should get fired for his comment. Torres was never the same after his lost to Bowles. From undefeated champ to now fighting in prelims and getting cut. What a shame….

ace Says, in 12-8-2011 at 23:13:52 from    

Dana should get fired for his homophobic comment and his behavior towards Loretta Hunt!!!

drunkentigah Says, in 12-8-2011 at 23:14:21 from    

Everyone should e-mail Mr. White to re-sign Torres. Then we’ll get to see a vlog of him telling us all to eff off :).

neruda Says, in 12-8-2011 at 23:14:51 from    

r*** vans arent cool anymore?

op_of_faith Says, in 12-8-2011 at 23:31:08 from    

Well…he did that to himself…1) the UFC is trying to go mainstream, 2) r*** is not funny…guy on guy r*** jokes aren’t even funny though they are part of the cultural lexicon, 3) of ALL the times to be dumb enough to do that, to do it now with the Penn state and Syracuse (yes I get that we are talking child molestation in those cases) i.e. sports associated…just REALLY stupid…

USMCKiller Says, in 12-8-2011 at 23:32:34 from    

Overreacting? Yes. I think this release from the UFC is more from his boring ass fights than anything else. This quote on his twitter was just an excuse.

Crazywhitie Says, in 12-8-2011 at 23:33:42 from    

Dam WOW>.>> Thats not even that bad… People need to Lighten up.. WTF

Pedro Says, in 12-9-2011 at 00:48:34 from    

I’m from Australia, and I don’t get all the Penn state references, what does it entail? (it was on south park n stuff as well…)

SeanDaRyan Says, in 12-9-2011 at 01:02:28 from    

no one has a sense of humour these days?

mkwalsh Says, in 12-9-2011 at 01:25:52 from    

Forrest’s twitter: “r*** is the new missionary”
Where are his repercussions?

Dr.Acula Says, in 12-9-2011 at 01:44:23 from    

So evans and griffin can do it, but torres can’t? For anyone who doesn’t know griffin posted “r*** is the new missionary” on twitter. And isn’t what torres said a quote from IASIP?..which is on fx..which the ufc is now on? Dana must of just been looking for a reason to cut miguel..but hes 2-1. Bellator just gained a strong fighter.

ThatDude Says, in 12-9-2011 at 01:57:41 from    

Hey man, let Torres fight. Gay people are hurt by the hearing the truth. Its messed up when somebody takes advantage of your innocents but firing somebody over something wrote on twitter ? Gay people are in our face all day on Tv, Doin there babylon thing, They just need good direction from god, and he would direct them to who they need to be with. ( the opposite sex ) Not same sex

straightAhead Says, in 12-9-2011 at 02:17:45 from    

Quote of the day…

“Dealing with the UFC is like dealing with a woman on PMS”

Dana has said similar derogatory things about women… Rampage has done/said similar things…

If i were Miguel i would sue the UFC for wrongful termination

wcoastassassin Says, in 12-9-2011 at 02:53:14 from    

But it’s fine for Dana to call people f***** Faggots. “No, there’s no misunderstanding between us.”

srebrnjak Says, in 12-9-2011 at 03:55:24 from    

hell be back within a year.. this is stupid as s***

djcincy Says, in 12-9-2011 at 05:43:19 from    

Rashad wins and migel doesn’t. So if your losing in the ufc; don’t say stupid s***.

BlackRazor Says, in 12-9-2011 at 05:53:18 from    

They both should be released because they are both dumb as hell for making the remarks! Comparing Child Molestation to a fight is idiotic and down right insensitive to the plight of those r*** victims especially children and suggest that woman are vulnerable to getting r**** because they are eager to be suprised is stupid, theyt both are asshole’s

Jim Says, in 12-9-2011 at 06:48:51 from    

He said this on twitter? Does his twitter page have anything UFC on it (like the UFC trademark or anything)? If he was doing a post fight interview, I might be able to understand.

And Rashad said this in an MMA related interview. I Think Zuffa’s trying to cut Torres.

xformat01 Says, in 12-9-2011 at 07:21:28 from    

You all need to understand that perhaps, just perhaps there is more to the story than you can possibly understand. Don’t bitch and gripe about Dana Whites decisions. Until you are the owner and President of your own company, try not to judge such decisions and conclusions. When you’re the owner and President of your company, you, then, can make all the decisions that you want. But until then how about you just keep your mouth traps shut.

Tankless Says, in 12-9-2011 at 08:01:24 from    

Hmmm…Dana Douchebag , and I truly liked Dana , but tats just bullshit. Forest and Rashad should be released as well.

Maximumpain Says, in 12-9-2011 at 08:22:14 from    

I don’t even care that they released him for such a stupid reason, but at least be consistent.

John Boss Says, in 12-9-2011 at 08:29:30 from    

UFC+Fox=$$ for dana an his croonies.
Now, fighters have to bite their tongue before speaking freely.
UFC will become a sport with tons of advertising, for a small amount of fight time, just like football.

Licks72 Says, in 12-9-2011 at 08:34:33 from    

Dana is a monumental hypocrite. He is the king of insensitive, harsh comments and he is going to cut someone for what they said? Bullshit. He wanted to have an out while standing in front of S.I. It’s called grandstanding.He’ll make a way for Miguel to get back in by some b.s. penance.
Dana is bad for the UFC at this stage of its growth. He needs to be behind the scenes and have a much more polished professional represent it. He was good for the early stages but this is big time now.

YodaSangklai Says, in 12-9-2011 at 08:50:09 from    

I think Dana was r**** by men in a van when he was a kid…so if you a felony guy like Sonnen that is not a problem for him!

Dan Blankenship Says, in 12-9-2011 at 10:35:13 from    

WHAT? Has anyone seen the YouTube video of Rampage Jackson dry-humping a woman interviewing him and her obviously being intimidated into not pushing him away? Is Dana going to get rid of Rampage for actually DRY-r***** that woman on video?

rtorres7794 Says, in 12-9-2011 at 11:35:03 from    

smart move. You idiots bashing Dana understand little to nothing about the image and vision the Ferttitas are trying to establish, especially now that they’ve got a media giant on their side. That means abiding by Fox’s conservative ideals to some degree. If they keep Torres, they very much risk losing their new deal they worked hard to attain. It’s all business, not personal.

Anon Says, in 12-9-2011 at 12:41:18 from    

Yoda, Dana called and said you are now fired from being a fan for that comment.

Licks72 Says, in 12-9-2011 at 12:43:16 from    

@rtorres- calling everyone “idiots” because their opinion is different than yours is intelligent. Maybe you are a fan of knee jerk reactions? It seemed clear, but not definite that Dana got caught off guard with the quote and distanced himself from the situation. But I guess you know everything definitely and everyone else are idiots. Do you think that 1 fighter out of over a hundred quoting a FOX show would queer a lucrative deal? I don’t.Dana is showing how insignificant 1 fighter really is. Take a seminar on how to be human please.

casyboy Says, in 12-9-2011 at 13:46:51 from    

mma use to get you layed back n 2000 bc[mc hammer fists], but with r*** becoming illegal in 1952[lol], would be rapists have found salvation in becoming rappers as a legal alternative, yes in the form of a freestyle rap sarenade you can land the poon… now go RT that and try explain it to dana!

Grape Soda Says, in 12-9-2011 at 14:27:19 from    

I’m so sick of this PC fascism s*** where what you SAY can be used to limit your freedom, ability to earn an income, etc. Sure what he said was immature and highly offensive to many, let his FANS punish him by not supporting him don’t cut him from the UFC that’s retarded.
Dana is a dictator.

bobbo Says, in 12-9-2011 at 14:58:37 from    

NO freedom of speech in the UFC.

Freaklegion Says, in 12-9-2011 at 17:23:55 from    

There’s totally freedom of speech…. you can say whatever you want.

May not have a job though.

SEAN_VANCE Says, in 12-9-2011 at 17:58:35 from    

Total BS..people get caught doing drugs and committing crimes and stay in the UFC, and this guy tells a joke and gets kicked out….BS ..total BS

drunkentigah Says, in 12-9-2011 at 19:14:45 from    


A former coach from Penn State was caught molesting boys. I watched the Rashad video of his Penn State remark and it seemed more offensive than what Miguel said only cause it was directed at someone. Problem is Rashad pulls in more viewers than Miguel.

becquer Says, in 12-9-2011 at 19:24:23 from    

more respect guys

dana white was r**** in a van,,,

thats no funy

YodaSangklai Says, in 12-9-2011 at 21:19:21 from    

@Anon tell Dana it just a joke LoL!

I always knew there something f***** up about miggill torres f***** boarder jumpers when will they ever learn geeez by the way if u wanna know more what i think about miggiell Torres and that cheating grease humping george saint Pierre come to bjpenn.com

mmaboxingfan2 Says, in 12-10-2011 at 18:13:39 from    

Of course dana wouldnt cut forrest or rashad but cut someone lower in the ufc to scare the fighters… then come up with a excuse why he didnt cut forrest or rashad. Like say anderson did this you wouldnt hear a word. Dana cut war machine for saying things about barrack obama and evan tanners death but had an explanation why he said it and dana still cut him. If your high up in the ufc dana wont cut you. Also if your a ultimate fighter winner he wont. Look at joe stevenson going 0-4 and finally they cut him but then another guy wins 4 fights and loses 1 fight and they cut him. Dana is just playing the game.

mmaboxingfan2 Says, in 12-10-2011 at 18:15:58 from    

I agree torres should of been cut but forrest and rashad should of been too. Just because forrest had an answer which he probably thought about beforehand to his r*** joke…its pretty unfair.

paddedummy Says, in 12-11-2011 at 09:53:04 from    

The UFC is the place where the toughest fighters who are politically correct and have the nicest social skills are. Everybody knows that being classy, sensitive of other people’s feelings and polite are the attributes that make the strongest fighters! Seriously though, you could walk into any prison shower, drop the soap and have 10 guys who would own Torres and Rashad rush up behind you when you bend over to pick it up, lol
