Miguel Torres axed by UFC over rape joke tweet
The UFC has released former WEC Champion Miguel Torres for tweeting a rape joke quote...
Torres tweeted: EDIT: From what I saw in articles, he first tweeted rape van, but then changed it.
"If a windowless van was called a surprise van, more people wouldn't mind going for rides in them....Everyone likes surprises."
"...I'm on [Michael] Landsburg's show, up here in Canada, and he hits me with the quote of what he tweeted," White explained. "Now there's no explanation for that. There's absolutely nothing I could say to make any sense of that. And the fact that he even thinks that's funny or that's a joke, it disturbs me. It bothers me. Again, you're dealing with a guy that's a smart guy, that owns his own business, that's been one of the top fighters in the world forever. And I cut him today. He's no longer with the UFC."
Forrest Griffin caught flack for tweeting "rape is the new missionary" but managed to dodge harsh retribution by claiming it was commentary on how common rape is in the news.
Rashad Evans got in some trouble (none) for saying to opponent Phil Davis (who went to Penn State).
"I guarantee you'll be the first one to take a [wrestling] shot. Guarantee. Because I'm going to put my hands on you worse than that dude did them other kids at Penn State".
