    Yeah he has the right to a private life... but if he says it on twitter... which is a method of making your inner thoughts as public as humanly possible (literally)... then there is a very real sense in which he has willingly given up his right to privacy.

    To be fair he could easily have meant 'bitch' but his wording has unavoidable connotations, whatever he meant.

    You say about him being an employee but everyone deserves a private life aswell? He cant be ridiculed about everything he ever does or says. I understand it was directed at another "employee" of Zuffa and not just a random person but seems a bit harsh to suspend someone for saying one word that is not the harshest of words out there.

    I am not really that bothered about it, yes he was probably wrong but doesn't deserve to be cut for it
    Everyone deserves a private life but the comment was public. Plus all the fighters have to follow the code of conduct that the UFC brought in to try and curb things like this.

    I dont think he was ever going to be cut for the comment, was more the UFC showing there hard stance on discriminatory comments.

    How the fuck did they let mitrione off so lightly if this is their new stance?

    What, it's ok to cunt off trans by comparison?
