OnlyTheStrongSurvive -  "The 28-year-old champ sees the benefit of hype, being an avid fan of onetime middleweight title challenger and current light-heavyweight contender Chael Sonnen."

He is trying to compliment Chael. Phone Post

It is a very backhanded compliment. He's essentially saying he's a shitty fighter but he can promote himself well. The man is a very good fighter.

I love it when someone tries to describe someone that's black without saying their black, because that would be offensive.  It's hilarious and pathetic all at the same time.

 

Jesus, coming from the middle east at the time he did, was probably not white, by the way.

 

Not that there's anything wrong with that.

I completely agree, Jesus probably looked like an Arab. I was being facetious. Phone Post

the people on here whining that Benson is racist might be going to far, but imagine if a white fighter went out and said "he's just another athletic black guy"

They are White. You should get more educated if you didn't know that.

That average white guy has earned more money in two fights against Silva than Henderson will in ten.

nick diaz nut hugger -  My best friend when I was young was black. I went over his house in December and he had a small statue of a black Santa Claus. I remain confused to this day Phone Post

The department store I work in has a black Santa statue up. Is it just a coincidence that my boss is also black?

No I don't believe he's racist, I just think he made a poor taste racial comment that can easily be construed as racist and offensive and it warrants an apology.

The color of Chaels skin has no bearing at all, and to suggest he is any less marketable because he's white is a perfect example of racism. Even if its a reality, it doesn't mean it's right and a UFC champion should not be promoting that kind if ideology.

It's not that big of deal though, I don't think he hates white people or anything, he just misspoke. A simple apology would suffice. Phone Post

u should go behind the words and go to his intent..he is not saying chael isnt marketable because hes white..he was just saying that chael doesnt stand out on the surface...again, hes a fighter, not a speaker, no need to be so sensitive about something that is so benign

It's basically the same thing right?

Sarcasm meter is off the charts right now Phone Post

It is the same sort of racism. Sonnen is being stereotyped as an average white guy, whereas if he was black I guarantee some people would look at him as some sort of quick, explosive wrestler. Look at a guy like Rashad. He shows nothing that makes him appear any quicker or faster than Sonnen but has a totally different reputation because he is black. Watch him fight Machida and see just how quick he is not.

It is racial stereo typing, and they don't like to hear it, so why should white people.

...""You have to be entertaining and have a few tricks up your sleeves, (to where people say), 'Oh wow, what was that?'" Henderson said. "A few entertaining tricks, and hopefully you pull them off.""

 

Yeah, like this one?

He said three of Sonnen's major attributes are average. He felt the need to point out that he was white. I think that means he is an average white guy, according to Benson.
