Ex-UFC fighter Jason "Mayhem" Miller went on a twitter tirade, blaming MMA's ban in New York on the ego of UFC president Dana White.

im not going to discredit miller. he has gotten a bad rap imo even through all his bullshit. Dana isnt a saint and i wouldnt be surprised if there is some truth to this

Maybe they don't like what they see, when the ufc holds a big event in Las Vegas they rake in the cash and they don't want it in NY because of that. It's New York's loss.

The reason is this: stupid people. Stupid people readily accept the explanation that MMA is homophobic and misogynistic, and because no politician wants anything like that on their record, they abandon support of MMA in order to claim the moral high ground.

I'm pretty disappointed in Cuomo as well, I seem to remember him saying he would work to legalize it if elected yet he hasn't taken a formal stance. I'm glad I don't live in NY anymore, I would have voted for him on that topic alone.

Mayhem is just being a dunce again.

I came to call him a bum, but he beat me to the punch.

Gotta agree here. Uncritical acceptance of uninformed notions about mma. Nice avatar btw

I'm surprised that anyone still cares about what Mayhem has to say.
