Bernard Hopkins recently took some shots at the Zuffa powerhouse UFC during a press conference for his upcoming fight.
“I’m from the hood, I don’t play that. I don’t wrestle with a guy with panties on, I got nuts in my face.. And they call that a sport. I’m suspect, can you imagine me ringside watching guys with panties on going ooohh.”
Not sure what MMA or’ UFC’ Hopkins is watching, but I have yet to see two men in panties ‘wrestling’ in the Octagon. Homophobic comments have been made towards the grappling aspect of MMA in the past by boxers uneducated to the ground game (Mayorga). Hopkins, all I can say to that is I hope we see you follow Toney’s lead in the near future.
