So I had family and their friends down here for the holidays, and I got them to watch their first UFC event. They were outraged, they have now vowed to boycott anything UFC and swore never to watch it again.

I don't know if you guys know what Semtex means, but it's an explosive that terrorists use. And my family has family that lives in New York. They are extremely upset that they refer to a person with that term. I don't know if any of them were killed in the 9/11 incident, but I know they know people who were, and people who were directly effected by it. And when you call someone a terrorist explosive, it doesn't sit too well with them. It just brought back bad memories and flashbacks of that fateful day. Something everyone was trying to get over. People still get emotional about it all, and the UFC needs to respect that, before there's a major outcry to have the entire sport outlawed.

They are trying to lobby to get MMA banned. People are still sensitive to the whole 9/11 ordeal, and it's too soon to be calling people terrorist explosives. I know Daley is not Middle Eastern, but to a lot of people in America, if you're from Europe, you're from the Middle East. And you can't just go around calling people from the middle east a terrorist explosive. Not in America, not on a live PPV broadcast, at a hotel/casino on American soil. Not in a post 9/11 America.

So UFC, please stop referring to Paul Daley as Semtex, and just refer to him as Paul Daley. I have family and friends extremely offended by his nickname, and it doesn't fly in today's day and age..

And please don't try to come in here and say "WELL WHAT ABOUT THE AXE MURDERER?" America has already been desensitized to all that thanks to all the Michael Myers and Friday the 13th movies. That's child's play to us now. But it is too soon to be calling people terrorist explosives. People still get emotional over the whole thing. Give it atleast 10 years before you go around calling people semtex and using other terrorist terms. Thanks for your concerns UFC.

I retired Anderson as my favorite fighter before he even lost to Weidman. So don't bother asking about it.

    What about Mike Tyson? Iron? and the coyote in the road runner used TNT dynamite..

    The word Semtex directly relates to terrorist activity, and as an explosive they can easily conceal, in which terrorists use.

    UFC needs to outlaw the term semtex, before they have a bunch of lawsuits to answer to.

    I think you "Jumped the Shark" with this one.

    Semtex had nada to do with 9/11.

    DIdn't say he did. People are still sensitive to the whole 9/11 thing. And using a term like that, is not right. When people hear the word semtex, they automatically think about terrorist activity.

    It's the reason why Hollywood wouldn't dare make a drama movie about Terrorists hi-******* planes and flying them into buildings. The general public would bury them in the ground. The UFC needs to lose the word Semtex and ban it. Have Paul Daley find a new nick name.

    If they don't like it, I would suggest they don't watch the UFC again imo.

    Paul has used that nickname for years and I don't recall the British people being offended by it, even though Semetx was used in the IRA terrorist activites many years ago.

    UFC needs to outlaw the term semtex, before they have a bunch of lawsuits to answer to.

    It's called blasting caps and dynamite along with c4.

    They use it on road side bombs and car bombs.In fact, Semtex is exactly that.

    Good job trolling though. Some people will believe it.

    But let me give you the run down on how AK came up with this thread. He saw Daley fight, wondered what Semtex stood for, went to dictionary.com to look it up and then thought "hmmm how can I use this to my trolling advantage"

    I see through you. Get better cuz this is slacking.

    If I showed this thread to my family they would have this entire forum shutdown. They know politicians. I'd fix that post if I was you.

    I'll show that post to the politicians in New York, and then you will really never see MMA sanctioned in NY. And it'll be all yours and Paul Daley's fault.
