It’s Election Day and voters are pulling levers, punching chads, and clicking electronic ballots in a frenzy to determine the next president of the United States of America. A record number of voters are expected to turn out at the polls for one of the most highly charged elections in U.S. history.
Despite his upcoming opponent, Kenny Florian, saying he doesn’t plan on voting in this election, Ultimate Fighting Championship lightweight contender Joe Stevenson told MMAWeekly Radio on Monday night that – like former welterweight champ Matt Hughes – he endorses Republican candidate John McCain.
Asked if he was casting a vote, Stevenson said, “I am, definitely… You’re not allowed to complain unless you voted.”
The 26-year-old fighter went on record saying, “I’m actually, I’m supporting McCain. That’s where I stand if anyone is wondering that.
“That’s the cool thing about the country, we do get to vote,” Stevenson continued.
“I live in California now, so I think the biggest mistake is a lot of people are counting him out in the state. They’re just going to just assume that McCain can’t win in California. But I think if everyone gets up and votes, he can.”
