    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    What is John McCain's current opinion on Mixed Martial Arts competition?

    My apologies if this has been talked about before.
    I'm sure some of you have seen the NBC special on the UFC "From Blood Sport to Big Time" on TV. Well in it there is a clip of Sen. McCain from the mid 90's talking about how barbaric it is and such. Apparently he was one of the early UFC's biggest and most outspoken opponents and played a large hand in it being banned from TV.
    Now we all know that what we see as MMA today is quite different from what we saw in the first years of the UFC. So my question is, does McCain know that?
    What is his opinion on the current UFC and MMA?
    And in typical bullshido fashion I'm really not interested in any speculation. Does anybody know if Sen. McCain has talked about this recently? Can anybody link to an interview?

    He approves. He likes the rounds, the gloves, the expansion of rules, and sees it as an actual sport now.

    And since he is no longer focusing on state level politics, he is less concerned with his family's local Budweiser distributorship and the potential revenue losses he might face from Arizona boxing matches losing attendance numbers to MMA matches.

    You expect John McCain to remember a position he had in the 90's?

    That's crazy.

    Yeah, McCain can't even remember how many houses he owns. (Psst, John, the answer is seven)

    well, we have a black man running for president and a woman running for vice-president and I haven't heard him complain about that mix.

    I did hear him say "tharuz should eat a dick" -off microphone so I can't corroborate it.

    Have some god damned respect you unpatriotic son of a bitch. The man lived in the same house for over 5 years...a POW prison camp! How dare you question anything about him, his positions, his memory, or his ability to lead this country.
