  • A Hawaiian with a flip flop sponsor, that’s an appropriate partnership if ever there was one.

    Lol, yeah, the next thing we’ll see is Jon jones with a sponsorship from KFC, then Cain being sponsored by a Slim Jim maker. Maybe Kung lee being sponsored by Minute Rice. Maybe Brock could pick up Stetson, Copenhagen, and Winchester.
    The sponsorship range might be expanding with the new fox deal.

    (by the way if I take heat over that obviously over the top stereotypical joke I will respond to it now. Get over it right after you get over yourself.)

    • Miguel Torres thinks this post is in poor taste…

    It may sound strang, but I actually post it because of the Torres/rashad/forest deal. The politically correct stuff annoys me. Honestly, the only way words, and phrases have less of an impact is when they’re said often.

    I have to be honest in that I have an extreme bias. I have never been “offended.” I don’t know how it is people feel when they feel offended. It’s never made any sense to me. Things are either funny, or they are not. If one person finds something funny I think it’s worth being said.

    I could have said Torres could pick up sponsorship from econoline, 3M’s duct tape line, and someone who makes nylon rope. 😉

      You could have said that, but its probably for the best you didn’t.
