Godsmack - Toughness by Osmosis

Godsmack just put out a music video for a song entitled "Crying Like a Bitch," and it's packed with highlight moments from the UFC.

Here's the monstrosity in all its glory:

Now I normally view the UFC as being pretty savvy media-wise, but allowing their footage to be used in this video is a disgrace.

Let's look at the lyrics:

Strut on by like a king
Telling everybody they know nothing
And long live what you thought you were
And time ain't on your side anymore (anymore)

And so you tell me I
Can't take my chances
But I told you one too many times
And you were crying like a bitch

I'm tougher than nails
I can promise you that
Step out of line
And you get bitch-slapped back
And you can run
Your little mouth all day
But the hand of god
Just smacked you back into yesterday

And so you tell me I
Can't take my chances
But I told you one too many times
And you were crying like a bitch

And you wonder why
No one can stand you
And there's no denying
You were crying like a bitch
You were crying like a bitch

Blinded by your sacred faded past times
Only time is your enemy
Granted a second chance
To prove that your arrogance
Is stronger than you'll ever be
Is stronger than you can be

Oh stronger than you can be
Oh stronger than you can (be)

And so you tell me I
Can't take my chances
But I told you one too many times
And you were crying like a bitch

And you wonder why
No one can stand you
And there's no denying
You were crying like a bitch

You were crying like a bitch
You were crying like a bitch
You were crying like a bitch

Oh Bitch

I have no problem with Godsmack's lead singer explaining how tough he is (I mean who would lie about such a thing?), but the UFC should want NOTHING to do with a song called "You Were Crying Like a Bitch."

If MMA wants to be taken seriously as a sport, it must actively fight the notion that its athletes and fans are comprised of wannabe tough guys (most of the tough guys I've ever known never talked about being tough) - not supporting it by participating in these types of idiotic videos.

This sport is about courage in the face of danger - not looking like a tough guy and making people cry "like a bitch."

If you're reading this Zuffa, leave this crap to Felony Fights, not the UFC.
