Bernard Hopkins Thinks MMA Is Gay, Dan Hardy Offers To Beat Sense Into Him

Bernard HopkinsThe attacks on MMA from the boxing world continue to come.

Bernard Hopkins is the latest to take a shot at MMA. Based on his comments, he must have saw the weigh-ins segment in this week’s episode of The Ultimate Fighter.

“Everybody is different but 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. I’m not wrestling a guy with panties on and his nuts in my face.”

Nice B-Hop, I didn’t think it was possible for the comments to get any dumber, and here you go proving me wrong. But whatever, I quit getting mad over every ignorant remark made by some dude with a little name recognition a long time ago. Dan Hardy hasn’t though. He struck back with a few comments of his own and even offered to show Hopkins that MMA isn’t about wearing panties and teabagging.

“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…”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.”

I think I’m starting to like Dan Hardy.
