Well, because of the number of asshole bouncers that I've seen out there, I really don't resent Sorbral's actions.

99% of well known MMA fighters really have nothing to prove by picking a fight outside of the ring, but I am sure there are a lot of non-fighters that want to prove their manhood by fighting a pro fighter. They've got nothing to lose. If they lose the fight, they have lost to a top fighter. If they win..... well.....

I have a feeling being an MMA fighter is like being a movie star, except it's not the paparazzi in your face all the time, it's wanna be fighters trying to start something.

As for this being bad for MMA. I am on the fence about this. It's really a small incident. Spitting is technically assault, but so is just putting your hand on some one's shoulder. I have a hunch that despite getting arrested, Sorbral wont be convicted of assault. Also, I think all the drug charges on other fighters (cocaine, etc) are worse for MMA than this.

Bad for MMA imo......



So is Chuck looking like he is on drugs on a morning tv show. That was way more mainstreamed as well. Shit happens, these fighters are real people and this stuff just happens.



These guys are pro athletes that represent a sport. I hope that he gets suspended at least until this charge clears up

I'm pretty sure in most states that if you spit on someone it is automatically labled as assault. I know it is here in Michigan. So there's your assault charge.
The trespassing follows after you get kicked out of the bar! As long as he didn't hit anyone he will not lose his License. If he did then he is a moron for letting some shmuck get the better of him. Your a professional fighter Babalu c'mon now
