PostSubject: UFC enlists third-party law firm for formal investigation of Anthony Johnson's gym rant   Thu Aug 20, 2015 10:45 am

Former UFC light heavyweight title challenger Anthony Johnson is the subject of yet another UFC initiated investigation, this time for a Facebook rant in which he repeatedly insulted a woman from his gym and said he “snatched” her yoga mat from under her and threw it across the gym.

Johnson (19-5 MMA, 10-5 UFC) apologized after the rant, which many called misogynistic due to his repeated insults about the woman’s looks, became a topic of discussion across multiple websites.

“UFC is aware of the situation involving Anthony Johnson,” a UFC statement provided to MMAjunkie read. “We take these matters seriously and have commenced a formal investigation by a third-party law firm. We will act accordingly once we gather more information.”

This is not the first time Johnson has been the subject of an investigation initiated by the UFC. He was suspended this past year following domestic violence allegations from the mother of his children and later reinstated after the woman withdrew a protective order. The UFC claimed to be initiating an investigation during that suspension.

The 31-year-old also was found guilty after pleading no contest to domestic violence charges in 2010.

Johnson is currently scheduled to face Jimi Manuwa 15-1 MMA, 4-1 UFC) at UFC 191 on Sept. 5 at Las Vegas MGM Grand Garden Arena. The bout will be Johnson’s first since being submitted by Daniel Cormier in a bid for the then-vacant UFC light heavyweight championship.

Welp, that's it!!! I'm done!

I don't even know what to say anymore.




Just take a second to say this out loud:

"The UFC has enlisted a third party law firm to investigate Anthony Johnson for being misogynistic on Facebook and getting into an argument with a woman doing yoga at a gym."


I can't.
I just can't.

The wussification initiative is complete, everybody.
Fake outrage is now the norm.
Anyone and everyone who does anything remotely offensive or inappropriate will now be "investigated".

Everyone step aside! Soccer moms and feminists are coming, and they're gonna be doing yoga everywhere, anywhere, and whenever they damn-well please. And if you don't like it, tough shit! Try and do anything about it and you'll be blacklisted as "threatening" faster than you can say "The UFC takes these matters very seriously...."
