Listing negatives about someone and including skin color in that list is a disgrace.

I'm no longer a fan, I hope Diaz fucks him up. Phone Post

"He is of average speed, average athletic-wise, white guy,"

I'm sure Chael would disagree with this, I remember him telling me in the lead up to one of his his Paulo Filho fights that he was the fastest white man alive....

Zaph -  I like to take Louis CK's stance on this. As a white guy, you can't offend me with racist remarks, because being white is awesome. I don't mean that white people are awesome; I mean that being white is awesome. We have it made, and if time travel is ever developed, we can travel to any time in the past without fear of race-based persecution. Phone Post

Just listen to how you are conditioned to think. This is what I read:

I can't be offended if you stereotype me because I have no right to be offended. Let me just clarify, white people are not good. We have it easy, our lives are fantastic because we are white. If you say derogatory things about us, it is probably because we deserve it for being white. Historically, white people have not been oppressed like many other races, therefore we deserve to be the butt of jokes and ridicule now.
Then you completely misunderstood my post. Phone Post

I'm the bigger horse's ass for my first comment about the Louis CK routine.

Can we all just agree that the title of this thread/news story is inaccurate? Phone Post

Why, yes. Yes, we can.

Now, which of you UG'ers wants some of this here KFC with watermelon slices on the side?
I like when Dave Chappelle said:

"People think something's wrong with me because I like chicken and watermelon. Let me tell you something mothafucka, if you don't like chicken and watermelon, something is wrong with YOU" Phone Post

Somethibg's wrong with me, then. Love me some chicken, can't stand watermelon.

Apparently the shitty, intentionally misleading article titles only get changed when Dana complains about them. Then you get a title change and a grovelling apology

Race threads are by far the most entertaining thing on the UG. The people always arguing about racism usually fall under one of these categories:

Has no idea what racism actually is.

Outs themselves as racist while explaining how not racist they are.

Thinks that noticing the colour of someone's skin is racist.

Thinks that a statement like "black people are from Africa" is racist.


... That being said, Chael totally acts like an "average white guy". Phone Post

For you and anyone else who completely missed my point, here's the routine to which I was making a reference.

I need to add that your post really annoyed me, because I have spoken many times against the concept of collective guilt.  It's one thing for you to have misunderstood my post's intent, but it's another to sit there and be accused of being something I loathe.

And please spare me the psychoanalysis, since you're hopelessly bad at it.  Don't presume to tell me how I'm conditioned to think.  Absolutely none of what you said was stated or even implied in my post.  How you got from "I don't get offended by racist remarks toward white people because being white is awesome" to "I keep my mouth shut when people make racist remarks about white people because we're a really naughtly bunch and we deserve every bit of it" is completely beyond me.

White guy in terms of the UFC PPv Demographic pertaining to the 18-35 year old Caucasian males it's really not racist since Benson is stating that Chael sales because he appeals to the buyer.


Chael Sonnen is the Elvis of MMA trash talk. Where as Elvis ripped off a couple of songs and dance moves he learned while performing in blues clubs and then suddenly he's the "King of Rock 'n Roll", Sonnen says things that even a brain damaged 13 year old thinks is corny and suddenly he's the single greatest trash talker not only in mma but in the entire history of modern athletics. Before Chael the entire concept of trash-talk didn't even exist and that totally, completely, 100% revolutionary act alone entitles him to limitless unearned title shots, hype and respect according to many in the all important 18-35 year old Caucasian male demographic.

Despite the fact anyone with a brain knows he is going to get curb-stomped in his next unearned title fight and of course the on after that.

Seriously. If we are to believe that there are not genetic differences between races, why even bring that up? Phone Post
Yeah def no genetic differences between races... Phone Post
Can you tell me which genes are present in one race as opposed to another? That is, where is there proof that we are different and not just expressing a certain gene while suppressing another? Tell me what is race other than skin pigmentation? Phone Post

He thinks being called white is an insult? Whites invent everything, control the world and have the best trained armies. Sounds terrible

And I almost forgot, if he wants to judge speed and athleticism based on skin colour go line up the gold medalists and elite soccer players. You will find a huge percentage of white skin people, probably the highest percentage.

He spelled color as colour so don't even try to say he's a racist white marecan. *breathes sigh of relief* Phone Post

Poor attempt at belittlement or dreadful humour. Could be either or both.

Used to be a big Henderson fan but this guy is really saying some stupid stuff lately. Also, considering how lame he safety fought in his last fight Henderson's not one to be criticizing anyone else. I'm a vehement hater of lay and pray and all who do it but Chael has done a good job of posturing up to throw hard punches, not baby punches, so I wouldn't call what he does lay and pray. Plus he subbed Stann. He's not a barnburner but he's at least as exciting as Henderson has been in his last few fights.

Benson "The Decision King" Henderson has no right to slag Chael. At least Chael has finished fights lately. Henderson clearly has let everything go to his head. His head is huge now. Perhaps the least humble fighter in the sport. He should climb down off that high pedestal and concern less with himself and his vanity and mor with finishing a fight for a change.

NO, chael's not average. He roids and was born quite wealthy. Also he is a felon who got off easy because he ratted out his partners in the fraud. All of which makes him special.
