Good thing for him he knows martial arts, he’s going to need them where he’s going. He’ll have plenty of dates to choose from. I just hope he drops the soap in the shower.

I am glad they finally are charging him with this crime. It is disturbing how some people feel they have some right to act out their fantasies upon others.

Sad that Keith Hackney couldn’t have pulverized his groin before committed rape.

Considering that most UFC fighters don't have any kind of criminal record at all. That actually is surprising, then again, he is a FORMER fighter from way back when.

It's a young phenomenon. Give it time.

Nothing from the ‘entertainment industry’ surprises me. It would not surprise me to hear that child stars are routinely passed around from pedo producer to pedo director either.

Also, its the land of “fruits and nuts” for a reason.

Given enough time, I'm sure one can say the same about anything from tennis to golf, and find just as many delinquents in those endeavors.

Looking at the backgrounds of most UFC fighters, at least the ones on the current roster, you'll find fewer thugs there, then you would in any of the other major sports from baseball to hockey to football (I'll skip basketball, because the real challenge there is to NOT find a thug, lol).

Of course, champ. Tennis, golf and... cage fighting.

Learning fighting skills take discipline and hard work for future rewards.

These are characteristics not normally associated with criminals.

Drawing conclusions from one data point is a trap all of us humans have to guard against.

There really isn't a lot of them considering the sport. I can think of five.

There's a lot more Chuck Liddells, Jon Jones, and Wanderlei Silvas than there are Joe Sons, Jon Koppenhavers, Jeremy Jacksons, or Chael Sonnens (that one surprised me).

So, what else is it about UFC fighters that make them more prone to crime, in your opinion, than their skills at fighting?

Most UFC guys are respectful law-abiding citizens who are trained to do combat sports in a regulated environment. Idiots like this guy and Tank Abbott and a few others are anomalies.

Well, if they're anything like what your posts indicate about you, I'd say their delusional, because you keep reading things I'm not writing.

Now, if you'll pardon me, I've wasted enough time chatting at you.
