A lot of people have gotten pretty hot under the collar over Rashad Evans’ little kiss n tug during his fight with Forrest Griffin. But let me lay shit out for you in a way I hope makes sense for you:
Not suspension worthy:
Let me explain my general MMA theory, which is also my general life theory: people should be allowed to do whatever the fuck they want so long as it doesn’t hurt another person. That’s called FREEDOM, I hear you Americans like using the word but don’t always get the fucking point. Who gives a shit if Rashad Evans wants to grab his dick in the ring? How does that affect anything other than your delicate sensibilities of what is ‘right’ and ‘wrong’ in the cage?
On the other hand, you’ve got Quinton Jackson dropping two stones on Wanderlei Silva’s unconscious face with the ref giving him a piggyback and no one says shit. Hey, I understand Rashad is the devil and Quinton can do no wrong. I’m right up there with you on that. But seriously, people. When is the last time you’ve seen a fighter ignore a referee’s attempt to stop the fight so he can keep wailing on a comatose opponent? And it’s not like you can say Wanderlei was feeling fine after that assault.
If this was anyone else (well, not anyone else but if it was a lot of less popular dudes), I think we’d be hearing from Dana that the guy was getting cut. As it stands, I’m hoping the NSAC takes action here. Regarding Rashad, everyone needs to take a chill pill. I read something somwhere about how fighters need to be fined for showboating, talking shit, poor behavior in the real world, etc. The day fighting turns that vaginal, I’m packing my bags and moving to another sport that’s less lame like figure skating.
