A lot of you have already been discussing this in the comments sections of today’s stories, but we wanted to pass along the above screen-cap of War Machine’s latest MySpace blog post, courtesy of Fightlinker. It seems that his provocative political views (“Fuck an Obama…I hope someone smokes that motherfucker and every president to come”) have gotten him kicked off of another promotion’s roster. This time it’s the Bellator Fighting Championships, which will be launching a series of MMA tournaments to be televised on ESPN Deportes beginning April 4th. And while a setback like this would certainly convince us to stop posting our private thoughts in public, Machine is not “changing for anyone or any dollar amount…I will always be true to myself and my beliefs.” Take it from an objective observer, War — your beliefs aren’t worth more than a potential $250,000 payday. I don’t even think you could put a down payment on a pre-owned Ford Focus with your beliefs. And dude, “fuck a Disney”? FOR SHAME.
Bellator’s roster is coming together very slowly, but here’s who they have so far according to MMA Weekly:
Announced Participants for Lightweight Tournament
Announced Participants for Featherweight Tournament
