Snoop Dogg was brought into the UFC as a special guest commentator for the Dana White Tuesday Night Contender series. The promotion has been a mixed bag for UFC fighters, with several taking offense to the language and lack of respect Snoop has showed towards some of the fighters with his comments.
While he infamously ‘shared a blunt’ with Sean o’malley, other fighters have seemed less friendly towards the Rap icon who preformed at the UFC fighter retreat last year in Las Vegas, giving the fighters a private concert to attend. Former UFC welterweight contender, Matt Brown recently sat down with BJ Penn Radio to share his thoughts on Snoop and he didn’t hold ANYTHING back!
“It’s disgusting, and I just can not wrap my head around this concept of using someone that’s downgrading the sport to grow the sport,” Brown said on the latest episode of BJ Penn Radio. “You want to talk about bringing new fans, like who gives a shit. I mean the fans are going to find out about it. This sport is far beyond the tipping beyond. It’s not an underground, niche thing anymore. People find out about it one way or another. And it can be grown organically. I believe all this. I don’t know if the marketing people at WME or whatever might disagree, but I feel strongly that it can be grown organically and with some dignity. And we don’t need people like that bringing it down. And that’s it. If he walked up to my car right now, I would get out and punch him in his face.”
