Bernard Hopkins reminds you he's from hood, isn't gay, doesn't like MMA because it's "a porno"

New, 70 comments

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.
