There seems to always have been a relationship between MMA and Hells Angels for some reason, especially in Quebec. but even american fighters have been seen hanging out with Hells Angels when they visit Canada. Specifically below if a blue namer would i have added two pictures of both Tito Ortiz with non other then Sean Wolfe who is currently serving 9 years for drug convictions in Winnipeg. This pciture is not a random fan picture, this picture was taken in the clubhouse.

The other picture is Chuck Lidell with a group of Vancouver Halls Angels partying on several different occasions. supposedly Chuck visits them when in Vancouver.

So my question is....Is that o.k? will these pictures and stories start creeping up and percievably giving an even worse light on MMA in general. Or is it badass and just a part of fighting?

thoughts?

TampabayMMA - Mom Boucher and his chapter were also big boxing fans, bikers just like fightng theres nothing more to it...


oh for sure there is a relationship there. My question was as MMA becomes more mainstream will that start to be an issue?

Mom's first day out as a free man was to see former boxer and MMA Fighter and Hells hangaround Stephane Ouellet fight Davey Hilton.

In fact in TKO there used to be an MMA fighter that was a HELLS ANGEL and even had the Hells angel tatoo on his stomach. Steve Duquette was his name.

 Without going into it too much, there are people with alot of money, like to party, and love to watch fighting.
Why is everyone surprised when the fighters who love to party and have lots of money, start hanging with the people that are watching them?

but thats not the point. Before no one was watching...Now these fighters are recognizable and have huge sponsorships and a responsibilty to those companies. Of course there going to hang out, the question is when will it be an issue?

Lets break it down, MMA for a long long time has had a rough tough image. Look at most of the big stars and you will see drinking fighting crazy dudes. Look at the damn tapout show that was on (still is on?) for a while, it was a bunch of freaks running around with makeup training, partying, and going crazy. Thats the image the sport has at all levels. I'm curious which sponsors you think will run. Fighters with this image hang out with other people with this image, i see nothing shocking.

Tell me how you think companies that assault cotton with tribal bullshit and skulls and crows and weapons and call themselves things like TapouT, Hitman, et al., are going to get skittish because they might be associated with people that ride motorcycles? Shit, one of the biggest sponsors of the UFC is Harley Davidson.

Heres a new one, whats with all the UFC fighters hanging around with Marines and Soldiers?!?!?!? do you think sponsors will get sketchy if fighters are known to hang out with Government Trained Killers?!

Google project for you destro, "Target Demographic"

Goes back to the 70's actually. Funny story about Ajarn Sirisute (President and Founder of the Thai Boxing Association of the US):

After he retired as a fighter he came to the United States in 1968 to teach in America. As he would soon find out American 1960s culture was very different than the Thailand fighting circuit.......
Sirisute by this time had a well-developed penchant for mischief and somehow managed to befriend and train a notorious motorcycle gang called The Hell's Angels. "I had no idea who they were," shrugs Sirisute. That is, until the FBI explained it to him. Grimacing embarrassedly Sirisute continued, "So, then I trained the FBI."
