My first date with my husband was going to a UFC party to watch the fights. I’d never been a fan of fights, and I must admit, this was the oddest first date I’d ever been on. But he was bringing me into a house full of his friends, how could I say no? (Obviously, I’m not squeamish about meeting new people.)
After years of watching UFC, I developed a taste for the sport, and I also became a fan of some of the fighters. I’m a huge Georges Rush St. Pierre fan. I’m also a huge Roger Huerta fan. The husband is even okay with the fact that Huerta is my celebrity crush. So you can imagine my awe when I ran across a video of Huerta beating the shit out of a guy who sucker punched a girl. GO ROGER!
But there has been much debate and a lot of quotes. UFC President Dana White said that he was against street fighting, but said that any guy who sucker punched a woman deserved to get an ass whoopin’! One fighter chastised Huerta and said he should have restrained the guy. (Boo) That it wasn’t a fair fight.
I’m a woman who has been hit by a man. It’s not a fair fight by any stretch of the imagination. I think it’s justice that an unfair fight was pressed on the attacker. He deserved to get his ass beat for laying hands on a woman.
But that’s my opinion. What’s yours?
