Just in case you were ever wondering, Bernard Hopkins shared his highly intelligent feelings on mixed martial arts with BoxingScene.com:
"Everybody is different. I don't want to watch two grown men wrestling with panties on. I'm from the hood, we don't play that. To me, I'm not buying a ticket to watch two grown men with panties on, sweating, nuts in their face. That's not me. To compare that to boxing is ludicrous. It's a porno. It's an entertainment porno. I'm not wrestling a guy with panties on and his nuts in my face, and they call that a sport.
"I'm not criticizing people for what kind of entertainment they like. I think most of those people have chains and masks in their closets. There is something out there for everybody. I can understand if 90% of women were going to those things but I can't understand a grown man sitting there with a couple of guys watching two grown men with panties on, sweating. That's just my opinion. It's not a good look."
Let the record show Bernard Hopkins in his, erm, "cool" outfit, mask apparently not kept in closet:
And here's "The Executioner" shirtless, sweating, with another shirtless man in frilly shorts pawing at him:
You stay classy and tuned in to the world, Bernard.
