Hypothetical Question: What if a UFC Fighter Came Out?

It just happened with a journeyman player in the NBA, but what if a UFC fighter came out? I have been to several UFC shows (three) and the crowds varied. Do you think if a champion came out, it would be more accepting? Last year a boxer came out and seemed to be accepted. Obviously the girl Rhonda fought is gay, but I am talking about a MAN.

    Neck crank why so mean? Nick Ring has Never come out! That is a fact. Speculation regarding GSP, but no facts. I know a few months ago people were claiming Jake Shields but I don't think so. Just cuz Pierre is 30 something and not married doesn't mean he's family. Geez. I am not going to get in a slugfest of words with you and by the way, who made you the spokesperson for the forum? Try to enjoy conversations that challenge you to think rather than posts like, " Who is thebiggest goat in the division?"

    It might work for individual sports, but I do not agree with coming out in team sports. It is probably quite disruptive to the necessary comradery of a team in order to be successful. The locker room is an issue as well. What straight athlete would be comfortable with the possibility of being ogled at in the shower by a teammate?...or rolling with a guy that might secretly have a hard-on for you? :-O Do your teammates (and us) a favor and keep it in the closet.

    we all know the truth.

    I don't accept it at any point.There is a big difference between a friend and a love relationship.Obviously people who accept it don't know the true meaning of love and a relationship.There is a reason our bodies are designed the way they are,don't need to be a rocket scientist to figure it out.
    The ultimate testament to a relationship is bearing a child together, gay sex cannot do it.
    I do feel sorry those gays,they have a little something wrong mentally,not their fault,everyone has a fault or three.

    The majority of people wish they could have half the chicks GSP has turned down.The only gay i have seen around GSP was when Koscheck came out during the show in tights,trying to insult GSP.
    Gina Miesha Kyra ...yes please.

    I wrestled for three years in high school, baseball for two and fottball for one year. In college, I wrestled for one year and played lacrosse for two. Never once did I ever feel like I had to jump some teamates bones. Such a sterotype. It's just like women and men can be friends without having sex. This is 2013 not 1993. It's just that were men, and everyone thinks that are agressive nature means were going to act on it.

    I don't have an issue with gays of either gender. I'm not interested in a fighters private life or his sexual preferences because I'm not a fanboy. The people that are constantly talking crap about a fighters personality or whatever, the haters, rarely have anything to say that I'm interested in reading about or responding to. I come on this forum to learn about and share about MMA, not to listen to some 'fans?' of the sport cry about the personality of some athlete they have never even met.

    2013 not 1993? Dude you're crazy if you think that because modern society has gone bat **** crazy with being prolifically correct then that cancells out tens of thousands of years of evolution and a mans natural instinct to mate with whomever he finds attractive. If I'm rolling on a mat with an attractive female I'm gonna want to do the nasty with her no matter what society tells me I should think and feel, so is any other res blooded male. Anyone that says otherwise than s either gay or a liar.

    Hypothetical question: What if their sexuality was no one's business

    Oh wait...
  • jameswasfingeredjameswasfingered Posts: 17Free
    It's not about being politically correct, it's about respecting other's preferences. I get it. I know not everyone can accept people for who they are. My family is an exception. My partner happens to be 30 years older than me and my dad and mom love him! Actually my dad and Steve used to be golf partners. I never "came out." I didn't have to. My friends and family accept.

    I don't know about Page and GSP, but I'd be very surprised if Nick Ring wasn't homosexual. Not that there's anything wrong with that, more power to him. It's just hard for me to imagine the guy is hetero, the way he carries himself/talks.

    Not that it matters, Nick Ring is a badass, regardless of his sexual orientation.

    Frankly, I wouldn't give a ****. This is fighting; who cares if your gay or not. Same view that I had on women being in the UFC. Don't really care as long as the fights are good.

    You have more than three faults by posting this nonsense comment. How about forty?. How about thinking before posting, Oh I am just wasting my time.

    I couldn't care less about the sexual preference of a fighter. It is about how good they fight and carry themselves in front of fans and how genuine and honest they are . I am not interested in their personal life .

    exactly. In the end who cares where the guy likes to stick his pecker. We pay to watch them fight.

    BTW, GSP talks about his main life goal being settling down and marrying a women, Fathering five or six kids. Yeah I know anyone can say that but I think anyone with amy intelligence that's as much in the public eye as GSP wouldn't bother to concoct such a story, I mean why bother.

    The fighters should be allowed to use their genitalia in combat as a weapon.
    I'd love to see a guy **** in his **** into submission, or KO'd by **** penetration. Let them fights be real goddamnit!

    And the ladies should be allowed to squeeze each other's boobs in a lethal way.

    A fighter coming out would be like poop. It'd be hot for about 5 minutes and then we'd all walk away.
