    Convicted Rapist Headlining Card

    After reading about the last Strikeforce thread, gots me ta thinkin. INSTINCT (Patry's new promotion) just lost Martin Grandmont to injury.

    As a result, Todd Stoute will be headlining. A little background on the fighter:

    "He paid his debt to society" etc. Yeah, I know. But this was pretty heinous. I think it's shitty for the image of the sport overall......

    Heinous... yeah, right. A hooker got a little roughed up, that's nothing. If even 1/10th of the skeletons in the MMA industry got out of their closets, it would look like a damned charnel house.

    I have to agree this was way more than just "roughing up" a prostitute. Some people think you can do anything you want to someone in the sex industry.

    This is sad news indeed. What sport do they think this is, basketball?

    If he hold back from battle;
    But old age will grant him no truce,
    Even if spears spare him.

    On June 23 this year, he pleaded guilty to assault causing bodily harm, sexual assault and failing to comply with a probation order.
    I can feel the they paid their debt to society thing. But the that doesn't mean you should ignore the impact hiring someone with such a record would have your company's image. The man was a key part of plan rape and kidnap someone who ended up being a minor. Why give your money and an opportunity to someone whom deserves neither.

    He beat her over the head with a bottle before the rape, then they tossed her in a dumpster. That hardly counts as "a little roughed up".
