I liked Dana's response to this, not going to rush into any decisions but investigating thoroughly. If it turns out he is a neo-nazi, one of the scouts is definitely losing their job

Brandon Saling I think his name was. Even worse than a Nazi he also banged a 12-year-old girl.

If the dude is a skin the fuck him. I hate those cowards. If you tell me it's cool to be a skin as long as you fight good, then I say the same to you.

Not all skinheads are racist but most are dicks.

True, anti-skin skins are out there, and kind of an odd bunch as well.

I think the UFC needs to cut this guy to avoid a public relations nightmare.

Just to let you know, the vast overwhelming majority of skinheads, myself included are very anti neo nazi and very anti racist. Please don't use the word skin when referring to neo nazis. It gives skinheads a very bad name.

Wait the majority of skinheads are not racists? I always thought they were a very much "White Power!" group. I'm going to have to google this.

I gotta give some credit to Bloody Elbow and Brent Brookhouse for the research done on this story and the knowledge of journalism ethics with the Leidecker portion. Sometimes I read MMA articles and feel like I'm reading something a fan wrote, not a professional.

Just to let you know, you're talking about sharps, but yeah they should be differentiated, never had any problems with a sharp involving them being racist ass hats. But in the old days they'd run like a gang almost the same way a lot of the time Ii recall.

I am also confused. Are shaved heads and skin heads synonymous? I didn't think they were.

The whole skinhead thing started in England in the late sixties as the harder mods, foootball hooligans and teddy boys adopted a dress code of short often shaved heads, Ben Sherman shirts Levi jeans and Doc Martins and braces (suspenders to us yanks). One of the earliest references to skinhead culture was in Symyrip's (sp) classic regge album "skinhead Moonstomp". Some how in this country everyone thinks of boneheads as skins although most Nazis ditched the look in the 90s. It's all gang mentality as far as I'm concerned most time's in, my experience sharps just like an excuse to jump some poor kid by himself at a show 10 on 1. The anit-racist thing seems to come second.
