UFC welterweight Matt Brown took some time out of his preparation for his fight with former interim champ Carlos Condit at UFC on Fox 9 on Dec. 14, 2013, in Sacramento, Calif. to speak with bizpacreview.com. It was announced recently that the Armed Forces Network wouldn’t be showing NFL and MLB games as a result of the government shutdown; Brown was not impressed.

Bizpacreview.com has the story.

“I have the highest respect for our soldiers and wish all the best for them," said Brown. "Apparently, Obama thinks differently. Our soldiers should be treated with respect and should not be subject to the downfalls of the American political system. It’s very disheartening to hear that our soldiers are suffering even more than usual because our politicians can not agree on anything. The last people that should suffer is them. Again, Obama thinks differently. I wish the troops the best and hope I can make a difference in getting some entertainment back to them.”

"The president... needs a reality check. He should go serve for a year in the Middle East and see firsthand what it is like to be there. Obviously, he has no clue and no empathy for these men and women.”

The UFC has a history of holding events in cooperation with a US military base. UFC: Fight for the Troops 3 on November 6, 2013 at Fort Campbell in Fort Campbell, Kentucky will be the fourth. The shows have raised millions for military prersonnel. In 2009 White was awarded the Armed Forces Humanitarian Award.

Reggie Warren Jr, The Man

I dont think many presidents have had empathy for soldiers...or we most likely wouldn't fight in so many meaningless wars.

Ridiculous.

Obamacare is part of our law. Republicans in congress held government hostage by saying it must be delayed for government to continue. Certainly not Obama's fault.

To be more broad, the government doesn't give a fuck about anyone that isn't the head of a megacorporation

He's right and wrong at the same time. I think the troops should be given every concession possible to protect them from the idiotic governmental fuckery that happens on the mainland. He's wrong for assigning one man that blame.


Give the troops their sports.

Its shit like this which makes me wish fighters never mentioned politics. Fighters are obviously not noted for their intelligence and considering siding with one political party pretty much alienates you to half the population its a lose lose situation.

I'm fairly moderate myself and while I agree no president understands the plight of a soldier, but isn't Obama urging the private sector to hire veterans and pulling troops out of war zones that "W" started? I'm a big Matt Brown fan and still am despite these ignorant comments, but I really wish he'd just kept his mouth shut. No one cares about an athletes political beliefs.

Sad that if someone from the south doesn't care for Obama, his ethics or his policies...then they are either racist or uneducated. Phone Post 3.0
