Torres tweeted this: "If a rape van was called a surprise van more women wouldn't mind going for rides in them. Everyone likes surprises."

Dana cut him.

Ironic that Mr. Politically Uncorrect Dana White is cutting people for politically uncorrect tweets.

I was actually going to make a thread about this.

It's a complete double standard.

I've lost all respect for Dana to be honest. Hes been a hypocrite and done stupid things in the past but this is just sad.

Miguel is a father. He needs to feed his family, and Dana took away his career (well probably in the sense that it's the most lucrative promotion for him). I mean when fighters lose too many fights they get cut, when they do stupid illegal things they get cut (well depends how much money you make them). I don't really consider this stupid, it was just a joke, that wasn't even that bad, I though it was funny (Offensive humor is my favorite =P). Even in his interview about the situation with Ariel, Dana was saying how people are way too sensitive….well how about this Mr. White? A guy posts a crude joke on the internet and you fire him because you say it's not funny and "your humor and his humor are obviously different"? Talk about being a hypocrite. What about when rampage went on a rampage and got arrested? Nope you signed him to a new contract and bought him a car. I just find it childish how Dana kept saying "You can't do these things on TWITTER!". Really? Are you in Jr. high? A grown man posting a joke on an internet profile site causes that much drama for you? Grow up.

Also another interesting thing about the Rashad thing. Dana said they mics were horrible and he said he didn't even hear Rashad say it, but i watched the video and he was RIGHT beside him on the podium and laughed when he said it…..someone has a lying problem haha.

But sorry for the rant, just thought i'd share my opinion on it.

Totally agree. There seems to be a line between the amount of money you can make for the UFC and whether you get cut or not. Forrest Griffin tweeted "rape is the new missionary" and got in trouble but not released. Rashad uses the Penn State child molestation issue to make a joke and does not get released. Torres does.

btw…Dana White calls a reporter a cunt and does not get released.

They need a clear policy on this because they can't have this as they get more and more mainstream.

It is not right to take it out on Torres.

I feel like if Torres or any fighter said this a year or two ago no one would have cared. I almost feel it's the mainstream Fox deal that had an effect of it.

Forrest was ok cause he said it was misinterpereted.

Rashad was ok because he wanted to make a point and use it against Davis or something like that

Torres wasn't ok because "it was just a joke"
Ridiculous! Rashad's reason was probably the reason that should've called for the most punishment (although I don't think you should punish grown men who are world class athletes for making jokes)


Dana on Rashad:

"The whole thing with me is people are looking to me, and I saw a couple
of stupid stories that were written, people who want attention — you
know who those people are," White said. "What do you want me to do? You
want me to have our lawyers draw something up and I'll come out and read
it to you guys? You know, he said something stupid. It's probably one
of the dumbest things you could say. He gets it, and he knows it was a
stupid thing to say, and we'll see what happens"

Funny how he acts like it's not something he can't do much about then cuts a different fighter.
