Boston City Council President Stephen Murphy isn't a fan of Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC).

In fact, Murphy recently sponsored a petition to have children under age 18 banned from attending any and all mixed martial arts (MMA) events held in Boston, Mass., even if their parents were willing chaperones.

It's not so much the actual fighting with which Murphy has a beef, but the un-policed behavior some UFC stars have exhibited outside of the Octagon in the past. Murphy pointed to former Light Heavyweight champion Quinton Jackson, who put out this YouTube video that (bad jokingly) showed people how to pick up women with the aid of chloroform.

You know, I want to act surprised, and I want to be mad as hell that such ignorant statements would be made, but the thing is, as long as the world is turning, there will be ignorant people around making ignorant statements with little to no actual information backing them up. This guy apparently, is one such person.

Yeah and all politicians are outstanding citizens. Infidelity, murder, prostitution, sexual harassment/assault, financial crimes, drug/alcohol abuse, fraud, extortion, money laundering, insider trading, perjury, you name it, and a major politician has committed. Does this mean that all politicians promote criminal behavior? Maybe we should ban politics (class officers/voting) from all k-12 schools.

This guy clearly doesn't have a clue what he's talking about.

I hope he gets raped by Rampage, without the chloroform, and then gets beaten like the woman that he is

WTF are you thinking making that statement?? Somebody ban this ignorant a$$hole. THIS is the exact kind of person that gives our sports & its fans a bad name. I don't care if this was meant as a joke or what, it's in extremely bad taste.

I won't touch on the aforementioned article, as it's obvious that this "Boston City Council President" is a dumba$$ hater that has some extreme grudge against MMA, but this dude needs to be dealt with.
