Everyone is still going nuts about this clip of Chris Weidman wiping his nose with the American flag at UFC 168

Everyone is still going nuts about this clip of Chris Weidman wiping his nose with the American flag at UFC 168

This gif wouldn't be up on the front page of MiddleEasy if it weren't for the many of you that sent this clip to us insisting that you were vehemently angry that Weidman wiped his nose with the American flag. In fact I chose not to publish it the night of UFC 168 since we already had an overload of content, but day after day you guys continued to submit this news tip, so we're finally going to publish it on MiddleEasy.

Yeah it sucks that Chris Weidman used the country's flag to wipe his nose shortly after defeating Anderson Silva at UFC 168. I mean, we have to give this guy the benefit of the doubt, right? Or do we? Where the heck is @Ranger_Up and @TimKennedyMMA when you need them? On matters of patriotism and conservative republican ideology, I sort of default to them. They're sort of like FOX News but without the lingering jingoism.

So there you have it, Chris Weidman wiping his nose with the American flag. We're not going to sway your emotions this time -- we're just presenting a historical incident that happened at UFC 168.

Should have wiped it on Silva's floppy sock. Wait. That was his foot.
+15 # #VoiceOfREASON 2013-12-31 13:55
Dumbass, did you really need to explain what the floppy sock was?
-10 # ob3 2013-12-31 14:02
Because the floppy sock was his foot.

You have no idea what I'm talking about. Bless your little heart.

Can you please explain the punchline for the third time? Please? (msacras)
+8 # ob3 2013-12-31 14:33
I am sorry if it went over your head, I thought it was obvious.

#ob3: You are not seeing the sarcasm in those comments. WTF?
He/she gets what you said, but they're pointing out that you didn't have to over-describe your little joke the first time. Then, with sarcasm(which he/she spelled backwards at the end of their third comment).
So, like the naive and humorless person you are, continued to explain the "joke" once again, when everyone already know what you were talking about.
But there was unintentional comedy during your last comment. Hilarious.
Context-via-int ernet always seems to confuse non-critical thinkers.

felt it so necessary to explain it all? Lots of spare time?
+5 # #SarcasmBlindness 2013-12-31 23:45
Actually, OB3 was being humorous by overtly specifying what should have been left to implication only.
That's a valid form of humor.
Not only that, but he clearly understood the first comment and again, overtly repeated the joke.

It's ok if you guys didn't get it, some did.

Who cares, give the guy a break. He cheated death 2x. LOL

He is wiping the blood of his mouth This headline is way too sensationalist
+8 # Nope 2013-12-31 14:56
Seems to me like he's trying to wipe blood from under his nose, since he got a nosebleed in the first round, and is then surprised when he sees that there's no blood to be wiped.

Why are we talking about this?
+11 # Joe54654 2013-12-31 13:47
It doesn't even touch his nose, looks more like he's scratching his mouth.
+10 # Freakintony 2013-12-31 13:53
Always have to tear down the new champ. Quit trying to make people hate him.
-1 # 69eyes 2013-12-31 13:55
Maybe Clairitin should sponser Weidman next time.
+9 # #VoiceOfREASON 2013-12-31 13:56
I just like his expression after he looked at what he wiped off onto it. He looked more surprised at that than Anderson did when he figured out why he was no longer standing.
0 # Ermagerd 2013-12-31 14:01
It's focking blood mate, middleeasy trying to attract the cheap heel like a sloppy heel
+7 # Mikeg5000 2013-12-31 14:10
Wiping blood is what the flag was made for. Good on him.

Hey Zeus, since you used my gif, do I get 100 points?
-21 # ChrisWeidman#1Fan 2013-12-31 14:18
After seeing this disgraceful shit I can't support Weidman. Fuckin' piece of shit calls himself the All-American and then does this? He should fucking know it's a great disrespect to do this to the American Flag. Fuck him. He's a fake piece of shit now. Now they need to punish him by making him fight Chael Sonnen and Dan Henderson. Real Americans. (V)
-7 # Dont Tread On Me 2013-12-31 14:23
I agree. Dana needs to put Weidman with Jack Swagger or Antonio Cesaro. Wortheles Weidman.
+17 # jt33 2013-12-31 15:10
i dont question the intelligence of anyone who would get mad about this, instead i will flat out call you stupid. its a fucking piece of cloth.. nationalism is stupid. you didnt choose to be born anywhere, so why the fuck are you proud of it? its just another way for people to divide themselves instead of realizing we are the same.

for the fools who will still get hard on for a flag that doesnt meant shit.. that flag technically belongs to every citizen of the US. he can do whatever he the hell he wants with it.

the man has 2 wins over my favorite fighter ever, the same fighter i openly admit to nuthugging because i think hes that great and i STILL dont give chris weidman as much shit as most people. the man won, respect it and move on.

This is just MiddleEasy makin shit up the way the news does cus without trivial shit we dont always have news.

should have shit on that flag cause it ain't worth much more than that :lol:

Fuck off Zeus

You're so positive. It's as if you weren't molested as a child and you're not taking it out on cyber-people.

Awwww....."THE POT" is no longer. Poor little guy is actually gonna have to sign in to make comments.

Anyone who is actually angry about this should have to leave his/her passport at the border and be gone.

America has enough lazy thinkers.

Damn, so stupid.
+7 # middlecheesey 2013-12-31 16:34
I love how you say "EVERYONE is still going nuts about this clip..." when really nobody gives a fuck other than yourself. You guys seem to be a gathering of banned sheepdog trolls who came together to make their own little stoner MMA blog. I understand this isn't serious MMA journalism but fucking hell...

been with you guys for a few years now, and youre killing yourselves with this troll shit

Good call. You must be English right?

CW just fought the GOAT in front of millions of people. To judge this man is ridiculous.

Anyone who has a problem with this has never competed; doesn't understand the amount of stress one is under; and doesn't understand what stress does to a person's mentality.

To compete in MMA at any level takes guts, focus and determination.. . everything else flies out the window--not on purpose but because the less important things get squashed in the moment.

Another example is the dude that farted on this same card. Do you think he cares about manners or what you all think of him when he's competing? This happens all the time in training and sparring. Do you think anyone cares or even blinks? No way! Your focus is on the guy on top of you or vice versa. The only people that made a big deal about this were the type of fans that I wish would disappear.

Lastly, is this site turning into TMZ or what???

A: It's his mouth you anatomically challenged fucktard Zeus.

B: Stop trying to make something out of nothing, maybe that could be Middleeasy's new years resolution?

Thats the cool thing about this country you can do with the flag what you want and you won't go missing, its called freedom

He is a disrespectful piece of shit!
He is going to sell 50k PPV's at most.
