Canucks fans make MMA fans look pretty damn good

The UFC’s second Vancouver show may have had it’s problems with illness and ticket sales, but it went off without a hitch in the security department. This was kinda important since the city was acting like MMA fans are one step above methed out gangbangers, and we’re STILL hearing about that gay bashing incident after UFC 115 that probably wasn’t even commited by UFC fans.

Despite fears of violence on the streets, the Vancouver Police Department reported “no incidents of note” Saturday night connected to a mixed martial arts event at Rogers Arena.

Const. Jana McGuinness, a VPD media relations officer, said the department increased its motorcycle and foot patrols around the venue after fight fans spilled into surrounding neighbourhoods.

“They didn’t report in any incidents of note,” said McGuinness, noting the VPD also had officers working inside the arena. “There was good dialogue with the police and the community since last year and their concerns were brought forward and we responded with increased patrols.”

Even the wussy residents association people were only able to complain about alleged overwhelming pee smell:

“They mostly seemed to head up to Granville, where I’m sure it was a rambunctious night,” said Bickerton in an email to the Courier Monday. “The sides of buildings and sidewalks reeked of urine around here yesterday though from all of the public micturition after the event. If UFC had paid to provide porta-potties and the extra police as we requested, we wouldn’t have that problem. But thankfully, no violence I’m aware of.”

La dee da, Mister Bigwords does not acquiesce to rambunctious micturition! Maybe instead of spending his day sniffing out sidewalk piss, he should have worried a bit more about the hockey game that went on last night.

Cars were torched, porta-potties set on fire, windows smashed and looting took place, while mobs of angry, unruly fans roamed the city’s downtown streets looking for and finding trouble in areas where only hours before record crowds had gathered to cheer on the Canucks.

Thick plumes of smoke from the numerous fires rose over downtown Vancouver, as darkness closed in on a city that thought it would be spared a repeat of the infamous riots in 1994 that followed a similar loss by the Canucks in the seventh game of the Stanley Cup.

Much of the smoke came from a number of cars set alight in the parkade of The Bay, which also had many of its windows smashed at Vancouver’s main intersection of Georgia and Granville.

Fist fights were plentiful. In some locations, people appalled by the violence tried to talk sense to the rioters, with only marginal success.

At one intersection, police fired what appeared to be flashbangs into the crowd, after rioters smashed windows at a liquor store.

Nothing like a good old hockey riot to make us MMA fans seem pretty awesome huh? I bet you can’t even smell all the micturition any more over the scent of cop cars on fucking fire.

    As CagePotato noted, there was a hockey game the night before the UFC, so I guess we’re supposed to think this guy can distinguish between hockey piss and MMA piss.

    Also, the agentwife is a high-level nurse, and even she’s never heard the word “micturition” before.  Neither has my spellchecker.  Mr Bigwords really wants people to think he’s all smart and learned and shit.

    Yeah that second quote is a fucking joke. Hypocrisy is a bitch!

    It may have been worse if they won.

    I like how the mayor, the media, and many fans are trying to claim that this doesn’t reflect on Canucks fans… the rioters weren’t hockey fans, they were just thugs that came looking to start shit.

    Oh really?  Then how come there’s a shitload of pics and video of people jumping on cop cars, fighting riot police, and smashing windows while wearing Canucks shirts?  Of course these people are the minority, but it’s funny to see everyone falling over themselves trying to defend the team and hockey in general.

    Oh but UFC fans are a rampaging horde of gaybashers because of one tiny incident that probably isn’t even connected.  Gotta love double standards.

    Canadians are stoopyd.

    Last night I told my daughter that her b-day cake was going to be a surprise. She responded with “I hate you.” I told her I still won’t tell. She asked what’s stronger than hate. I gave her all the words I knew: abhor, despise, detest & loathe. I ran out @ that point.

    If anyone can up me up w/”micturition” level words for hate, please advise. My 8 yr old would truly appreciate it.

    I hope someone micturitionates all over that pee-sniff’s desk for being such a pee-sniff.

    ha ha, the guy doing pushups 

  • kwagnuth

    Wow she’s slutty she must be from Van. Too bad all those UFC fans weren’t around they might have been able to put all those fires out. They would have been heroes. The cars would have smelled like pee afterwards but still it beats the bus.

  • Slappy san

    I wish I still had the video where a cop tosses a guy into a portapotty and a dude falls off said potty on his head. Then the guy fighting falls on the header guy. LMAO

    Look, I said something similar in almost every post about the Vancouver Gay bashing incident…..Surrey comes downtown all the time, and fucks shit up. It’s been repeated as a joke by so many here in Vancouver, but it’s only funny cause its true. Look at craigslist vancouver, for sale…….shitloads of Louis Vuitton, Coach and Gucci goods on sale, the day after. And where are the vast majority of these sellers from? Fucking Surrey. I think we needed more UFC fans downtown….help piss out the fires, then lay some real beatdowns on these rioting tools.

    So much drunken dumbassery.

  • Blackula Jonez

    good on that cop with the front headlock takedown.


    he wins 10-9 via aggression, effective grappling and sidewalk controll.
