Bernard Hopkins decisions Roy Jones Jr. in miserable fight: "I don't want to sound like I have no respect for these two fighters. I do. But neither of them looked like they had anything left tonight, the fight was hideous, and the tiny violin-worthy actions of Hopkins were despicable. The fight was truly bad in every single way. Neither fighter landed much by way of significant punches (Jones may not have landed one truly good shot all night), Hopkins flopped three times, Jones later called time on a second Hopkins low blow, and overall the whole thing just felt farcical and embarrassing."

Dan Hardy defends MMA again, this time responding to Bernard Hopkins's panties diatribe: "Hopkins is allowed his opinion but I don't think this is what he really thinks. "He knows that MMA is a tough sport and that the people involved are professional athletes. "I remember him talking very well of Randy Couture a couple of years ago after watching Randy train. "I get the feeling Hopkins lashed out at the UFC and MMA like he did because he knows nobody under the age of 35 cares about boxing any more. "It must be hard to accept for people of his age, he has dedicated his life to a sport and now it is being eclipsed by something more exciting — the UFC. "A large percentage of UFC fans are the people that used to buy boxing pay-per-views, but they now opt for the UFC instead. "It's a difficult pill to swallow, I'm sure, but that's the reality of the situation and taking little digs at the UFC and MMA fans won't change this. "It seems Hopkins has a tendency to speak before thinking, what with his racist comment before his fight with Joe Calzaghe fight, and now his homophobic remark." The Outlaw blasted: "Insinuating that UFC fans must have chains and masks in their closets is just ridiculous. "If I remember correctly, Hopkins enters the ring wearing a gimp mask, right? "I think most MMA fans will give his criticism the contempt it deserves, but Hopkins is welcome to come and have a go if he doesn't take UFC fighters seriously. "I'll take that fight and would promise not to wear panties and to keep my nuts off his face." HT: The Sun

Bernard Hopkins compares MMA to gay pornography: "Everybody is different. I don't want to watch two grown men wrestling with panties on. I'm from the hood, we don't play that. To me, I'm not buying a ticket to watch two grown men with panties on, sweating, [with] nuts in their face. That's not me. To compare that to boxing is ludicrous. It's a porno. It's an entertainment porno," Hopkins told BoxingScene. "I'm not wrestling a guy with panties on and his nuts in my face, and they call that a sport." "I'm not criticizing people for what kind of entertainment they like. I think most of those people have chains and masks in their closets. There is something out there for everybody. I can understand if 90% of women were going to those things but I can't understand a grown man sitting there with a couple of guys watching two grown men with panties on, sweating. That's just my opinion. It's not a good look," Hopkins said. HT: BoxingScene.com
