Jorge Riviera played a series of elaborate little jokes on Michael Bisping. His over-reaction to them just fueled his production crew to make even more videos. It was like a high school fight where a bully picks on someone just because they have a funny reaction.
Well we all know Michael Bisping is every bit the dick that Jorge Riviera claimed. We have irrefutable evidence after last nights "actions" we are seeing too much coverage of today. Now why should we stop caring about it?
BECAUSE NO ONE ELSE DOES
We are getting a free pass. In a budding sport where every misstep a fighter makes infront of a camera, or on twitter, or in their personal lives, gets blown way out of proportion, we have an incident which so far no major media outlet has taken and there is an article COMPLAINING about that?! After hearing Frank Mir apologize over and over for saying he wanted to kill Brock Lesnar, I am happy to see the over-sensitive politically correct world not freaking out about this guy using the word "faggot". Remember the flak received over Joe Rogan's use? Why do we WANT to see that again?!
They're fighters. These are not two gentlemen playing a game of polo. Frankly I am appalled when I see a rivalry turn to hugs and congratulations once the fight is over. I don't want them to just say "Yes it was all for the cameras" I want them to actually genuinely harbor resentment for each other if they're going to act like this before a fight. Do you know where drama is concocted to sell a fight? THE WWE. That "sport" that the UFC is so desperately not being tried to be compared with constantly.
So stop whining that we got a free pass this time and just enjoy the fucking fights.
