‘UFC gaybashers’ trial starts

Two years after the Vancouver press attached a gay-bashing incident to a UFC event going on in the area the same night, we’re still no closer to knowing if the guys accused of the crime were even at the fights:

David Holtzman and Peter Regier suffered concussions, cuts and bruises in an assault outside their apartment near Rogers Arena. On the night of the alleged attack, an Ultimate Fighting Championship event took place at the arena. Holtzman has said it was a homophobic hate crime and linked to the UFC event. Police investigated the incident as a hate crime.

Parminder Singh Peter Bassi, aged 30 in June 2010, and Ravinder Robbie Bassi, then aged 27, have pleaded not guilty.

The court heard that a building resident who witnessed the incident identified Parminder Bassi as a member of his soccer team in Richmond. Later, a Vancouver police officer also viewed a video of the alleged assailants running from the attack, and identified Parminder Bassi as a member of the Richmond soccer team.

No one seems to care about clearing up the UFC connection even though it appears in half the headlines and articles about the case. I guess they’re too busy trying to establish if this was a gay bashing hate crime or not. That led to some interesting details on the confrontation itself:

As Regier and Holtzman got to the door of their building, the men asked if they were f*ggots, Regier said. “They actually asked the question: ‘What are you two? Are you two f*ggots?'”

Regier said Holtzman responded, “‘Yes, I am gay’ and one of them said ‘F*ck you, suck my cock.'”

Regier said Holtzman’s response was, “‘It isn’t even hard.'”

Classic. That snap was totally worth getting beaten up over.

    Funny, my gaydar rings with their images.

  • SHORT_BUS

    I don’t think they were at the UFC event. I don’t see any douchey gold leaf lettering or cock punch designs on their shirts in that screen grab.

  • DJ ThunderElbows

    Naw Shorty, look at the neckline on the guy on the right, that’s totally some affliction shit.

  • agentsmith

    ^ Nah, that’s pretty standard for douchebag Indian dudes, same as it is for guidos.

  • frickshun

    They look less happy in court than they do in the street. I hope these idiots serve a couple of years @ least.

  • agentsmith

    And that totally was a sweet burn.

    I once got fired for got fired too. Just kidding, only idiots get fired for got fired… or did you mean forgot fired?

    Sounds like a redundant company

  • noiseless

  • iamphoenix

    getting got fired for got fired is always the worst.

  • Jarman

    They were probably downtown for the fights, even if they weren’t actually there. despite how homoerotic the sport is, you know there’s lots of insecure homophobes watching the fights. You know them…..they’re the idiots booing when there’s any grappling…..at the bar.

    It unfortunate that their idiocy is connected to the UFC, but the damage is done. Clearing up their UFC connection won’t change the fact that multiple headlines went to print tying the event and the assault. Having run into lots of douches like them through sports and partying, I have no doubt it was a qualifiable hate crime. This is just more products from spoiled suburbanites, the same thing as led to the riots. The sport’s just happenstance. The actions are pure juvenile retard.

    I just realized that the Robbie I use to work with 9 years ago guy was a dick back then too. Got fired for yelling and swearing at a woman who had a position above him, called her a bitch. He didnt even make it a year. He drove a mini van and kept a bat behind the seat as a road rage weapon. Guess its a good thing he was walking.
