gotta remember, in the EU market, you're also dealing with laws against disseminating neo nazi propaganda. That becomes a big burden for any company trying to promote a fight with this guy.
**** freedom of expression, throw him in the oven.
i personally feel it should be removed if he truly feels he is not a nazi
that tattoo is disgusting and what it stands for is disgusting
hopefully he can fight rampage so he can murk his cracker ass
There is a difference between enacting laws that would prohibit that gentleman's free speech or prevent his employment and expressing personal outrage and voting with one's dollar. Though, if he has renounced it, then I will not hold it against him. If he has not renounced, like that other douchebag whose name escapes me at the moment, then I would never give any money or support to him or the show he fights for.

Let's face it, he punches people in the face for a living. He's not setting political policy or anything. Maybe if that **** was wildly popular I would think twice, but here in California they're just a bunch of dickheads circle-jerking in Dad's basement.
A couple of thoughts.
First, I don't really care if he is or isn't a neo-nazi. Opinions, no matter how misguided, should never be illegal.
Second, if he's renounced the beliefs or reasons why he got the tattoo, then he should look into having it removed, or at least something else inked over it. People are going to be judged on both how they look and act.
Third is the concern I have over public opinion of MMA. I'm a bit torn on this one. It's obvious the sport is well established and here to stay, but I still run into enough folks who think that everyone who follows or does MMA is an ex-con, violent, ignorant, prejudiced piece of trash that it concerns me. Something like this does nothing but feed more ammo to the anti-MMA clowns in media and politics that we've got to deal with. On the other hand, the opposite end of the spectrum, where everyone is a 'clean cut good guy' stereotype is ridiculous and stupid. I don't really know where I'm going with this, except I see it as yet another avenue for fucktards to push the negative image of our sport on the public, and that's what concerns me.
If Neil Melanson can have his tatto prominently displayed in every Victory Belt book he slithers into, then no one give this Finnish guy (who's been fighting with them wrapped over and already said he doesn't believe in the whole Aryan power thing anymore) any grief.
As for Inglorious, Brad Pitt's accent was the most offensive thing in that movie. I've from Missippi, and I understood the French/German subtitled bits better than I did Mr. Angelina Jolie's mumbling.
i had relatives die in the camps. **** nazis. all wannabe nazis (skinheads) deserve big huge shwartza shmeckles right up their closeted faggoty auschwitzes.
with that said, **** anybody who would deny a nazi the chance to get the white beat off him simply because he's a nazi. personally, i wish more nazis would get into the cage/ring. it would be like the berlin olympics all over again.....
Let's start a reality show.
