Dana White is the most powerful person in MMA. His ability to control each of the greatest MMA fighter's contract is an asset that no one else in MMA can compare with now. Miguel Torres used to be pound-for-pound (P4P) the best 135-pound fighter in the world, but one silly, in a botched attempt to be snarky, comment just found him unemployed.
Rape jokes by Rashad Evans (just yesterday) and Forrest Griffin (earlier this year) caused a great stir and P.R. by the UFC and Dana White had enough trying to help his fighters out of a jam. Earlier today, Miguel Torres took to twitter to make an attempt to make his followers laugh on Twitter when he released this joke:
If a rape van was called a surprise van more women wouldn't mind going for rides in them. Everyone likes surprises.He may have been reference a line from the Comedy Central show "Workaholics."
Well, Dana White gave Miguel Torres what everyone likes, a surprise. In fact, that Torres has been cut from the UFC for his remarks:
"This morning I'm on [Michael] Landsburg's show, up here in Canada, and he hits me with the quote of what he tweeted. Now there's no explanation for that. There's absolutely nothing I could say to make any sense of that. And the fact that he even thinks that's funny or that's a joke, it disturbs me. It bothers me. Again, you're dealing with a guy that's a smart guy, that owns his own business, that's been one of the top fighters in the world forever. And I cut him today. He's no longer with the UFC. It's being announced right now to you. You're the only one that knows. Miguel Torres has been cut from the UFC and his career with us now is over."Former top five pound-for-pound ranking and the accolade of the greatest 135-pound fighter (WEC), maybe, ever is now tarnished as this has become his legacy as a UFC fighter.
