UFC star fired for tasteless joke

December 9, 2011 by staff 

UFC star fired for tasteless joke, Dana White had to make a tough decision on Thursday. Miguel Torres, one of the guys who helped build the business for the WEC and lower weight divisions, was fired by the UFC.

Early Wednesday morning, Torres tweeted what appeared to be a rape joke [that may or not be a line from the television shows "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" or "Workaholics"]. By Thursday night, the former 135-pound champ, was without his job.

What makes the situation dicey is that it wasn’t the only “rape joke” made by a fighter on Wednesday.

During the UFC on Fox 2 press conference in Chicago, White watched Rashad Evans drop a line about the Jerry Sandusky/Penn State child-rape tragedy.

On the heels of a rape joke from Forrest Griffin in November, it put White in a position where he had to do something.

The UFC president told MMAFighting’s Ariel Helwani that questionable speech by fighters will be handle individually. He accepted the explanations from Griffin and Evans, but not Torres.
