WEC issues statement regarding Cerrone's comments

source: wec.tv
 

"In a recent radio interview, WEC  fighter Donald Cerrone went too far in talking about his upcoming fight with Jamie Varner and we believe he crossed a line of decency in doing so," WEC Vice President Peter Dropick said. "We will not tolerate a fighter who makes comments that are not consistent with our company values, nor will we tolerate the use of slurs that may offend any segment of the public. We are aware Donald issued his own immediate apology on Twitter, but we still needed to speak with him about it, and to issue our own statement making our position known.”

 I strongly dislike Varner and hope Cerrone embarrasses him.

Not every one in MMA has to be "classy" but he did cross the line with the whole wishing death thing.I enjoy watching BOTH fighters fight.

 Good call - I'm sure you turn down money all the time because you don't want that label... Stick to bagging groceries and not selling out -

Not really a fan of either guy. Varner has never missed an opportunity to whine, complain, and make excuses about a poor performance. Cerrone calls his opponent a fag and wishes him dead. Classy.

Who the fuck is talking about an organization? As for Cerrone, it is now even going to be funnier when he goes to bed within 1.
