Advocacy groups call on the UFC and FOX to pull fighter “Rampage” Jackson from
The video, entitled “How to Pick Up a Gurl…Fast,” was posted on YouTube last April. In the video, Jackson pretends to attempt to rape a woman, telling viewers to use chloroform to “help her relax,” and buy zip ties. At one point Jackson states that he hopes his target “got low self-esteem.” To watch the video, click here.
According to the letter: “The UFC must begin holding its fighters accountable for their actions and adopt a meaningful code of conduct…The behavior of Rampage Jackson, UFC President Dana White and other UFC fighters is unacceptable. Misogynistic and sexist behavior can no longer be tolerated in the UFC.“
"..now they’ve uncovered some information about undercard fighter and debuting UFC lightweight Abel “Killa” Trujillo that is simply too glaring to overlook"
"...Or should an organization that showcases violence on as grand a scale as the UFC tread a little more lightly when dealing with the kind of fighters that could soil the name they’ve worked so hard to build and protect?"

We urge the U.S. Marine Corps to renounce its support of the UFC immediately.
Military veterans call for an end to the military's sponsorship of the Ultimate Fighting Championship. Veterans say taxpayer money should not be used to support a cage fighting company that has tolerated rape jokes, homophobic slurs and sexually explicit remarks that are demeaning towards women. The UFC is "Unfit for the Corps."

“Those men and women who have fought and risked their lives overseas in no way, shape or form resemble the bullies of the UFC,” said Albert Bolduc, a U.S. Army National Guard veteran and member of UNITE HERE New England Joint Board Local 687T in Simsbury, Conn. “The UFC is the antithesis of what every service member should stand for –- honor, discipline and self respect.”
The failure on the part of MMA promoters to ensure socially responsible behavior by professional fighters reached a new low earlier this month.
On March 3rd, Brandon C. Saling, who is a convicted sex offender and wears tattoos linked to Neo-Nazi culture, was allowed to compete in an event held by Strikeforce, a professional MMA promotion also owned by Zuffa, LLC, the parent company of the UFC. Saling is listed in Ohio’s sex offender registry for the offense of “gross sexual imposition.” In addition, Saling competed with the numbers “88” and lightning bolts tattooed on his shoulder. According to the Anti-Defamation League, the eighth letter of the alphabet is “H,” and the numbers “88” are often used by hate groups as shorthand for the greeting, “Heil Hitler.” Lightning bolts are frequently seen in neo-Nazi tattoos and are meant to symbolize the Schutzstaffel, or SS, Heinrich Himmler’s police forces.
Yet, Saling was allowed to compete before thousands of fans at the Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio, in an event that was broadcast on the Showtime network.

SIGN THE PETITION TO TELL TOYS R US TO DROP UFC!
UFC fighter Forrest Griffin was able to explain his way out of his rape joke tweet. He was not fired by the UFC.
After many criticized UFC for not doing anything about unacceptable hate speech by people associated with the company, Dana White was quoted as saying: “Everybody makes mistakes and everybody does things that are wrong sometimes. … We do the best we can do. How do you really think that we could possibly police 375 fighters and try to control everything they say.”
Now Dana White says regarding fighter Miguel Torres’ recent rape joke tweet, “There's absolutely nothing I could say to make any sense of that. And the fact that he even thinks that's funny or that's a joke, it disturbs me. It bothers me.” So the UFC cut Torres from its roster.
Why is it that the first time the UFC would act to punish a fighter for unacceptable speech, the company picked a Latino fighter?
At another company Frank and Lorenzo Fertitta own, Station Casinos, 78% of the 87 labor law violations committed by the company against its workers – as found in an NLRB administrative law judge’s recent recommended decision – involved Latino workers. Even the company says only 26% of its workforce is Latino.
