Vancouver is scurred of UFC fans

No offense to any Fightlinker fans living in Vancouver, but your city sucks and most of the people living there are uptight bitches. The UFC travels to dozens of cities every year without a hitch. But every time Vancouver comes up, there’s nothing but problems. This year in addition to the insane insurance fee the UFC has to pay, the city is also hoping to gouge them for extra police:

“We’re going to talk to the promoters about paying for policing outside the venue in order to have extra patrols in the neighbourhood to prevent what might occur in terms of neighbourhood problems,” Chu told the Courier. “Within a week or two before the event, we’ll have a good idea of what we’ll deploy within the stadium and outside.”

Las Vegas-based Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) promoted last year’s sold-out fight card. That night, a gay couple returning to their Tinseltown townhouse at about 10:45 p.m. were beaten by two men.

The VPD arrested two brothers June 30 in Richmond in connection with the attack. Police are treating the case as a hate crime after the victims, David Holtzman and Peter Regier, said the attackers yelled homophobic slurs at them during the beating.

Police have not linked the beating to the UFC event, although Holtzman said in an interview a few days after the incident that he believed his attackers attended the fights at Rogers Arena.

I’m getting kinda fucking pissed here. Those gay bashing morons were caught nearly a year ago and we’re still dealing with a cloudy ‘no link’ between the incident and the event. Do we need to call in Sherlock Holmes to investigate here? It’d be kinda nice if the police clarified the situation, especially considering it’s being used to scare people into thinking we’re an angry mob of psychos ready to descend upon Vancouver to assault their homosexuals and piss all over the city.

    Fuck this city’s bullshit…..i like Vancouver, I’ve lived here all my life. But for such a ‘progressive’ city (in terms of pot, the gays, ethnic profile, green initiatives), there sure is a massive stick up our collective asses. I was out in the streets after that overtime win last night, and sure enough, there was shitloads of police out, ready to crackdown….hell, as many as in the olympics. Though they may have asked the Olympics for extra money for cops, I’m pretty sure they’re not telling the NHL to cough up more dough for piggy patrols. This is another opportunistic money grab from gutless, conservative politicians. Makes me wanna smash some public servant face, which I’m sure would be no help to the situation.

    As for those tools who jumped those guys….surrey’s just a skytrain ride away from downtown. There’s plenty of other events that draws the trash outta that slutty ‘burb. Fuck those kneejerk reactions to these events, but I guess that’s the way it is here. Oh well…..I’ll never be able to afford the tickets to UFC shows here, so fuck it, I’d rather go to one in Montreal, I’ve always wanted to hit that city up.

    It’s not a money-grab, it’s just the latest example of the city council trying to harass MMA out of business in Vancouver.  It’s no coincidence that the UFC is the only promotion to stage fights there in the last few years, because they’re the only ones with the resources and determination to make it happen.  It’s probably not even worth the hassle, but I imagine Dana’s doing it anyway out of spite.
