Modern society is set up in such a way that pretty much nothing is left to the imagination. If someone is a terrible person, no matter how much they candy coat it, no matter how many people they hire to make them look good, they’ll make a mistake and show their true selves to the world eventually. How many of us believe that Jon Jones doesn’t go on Instagram and troll people or say shitty things once in a while? How many of us believe that he really gets “hacked” all of the time? But honestly, that’s just being a d**khead. That’s not being a terrible person at all.
Being a terrible person is posting a video of you and your friends laughing while you abuse an animal. Being a terrible person is posting a video of you pinning a puppy down, grabbing its paw and slapping it across the face with it, then jamming it into the side of the dog’s face as it whimpers and cries out. Being a terrible person is laughing while you do this and the dog is literally screaming out in pain. Being a terrible person is doing this, getting a negative reaction, then taking it down and posting photos of you hugging and playing with that same dog on Instagram later.
We generally speaking like to reserve our use of strong language for very rare times here on MiddleEasy. This is one of those times; Fuck Buakaw Banchamek. Fuck him. This video shows all of the above, watch it only if you can stomach it, but dear god, do not go into that comment section and post how he’s just playing with it or how he didn’t mean it, because this is all so unacceptable. It’s awful.
Buakaw Banchamek is a two-time K-1 World MAX Champion who of late has been best known for his legal battles against his former camp as well as hand-picking his competition and turning down offers to fight in bigger leagues. Buakaw, we’ve always been fans of yours in the past, but it’s going to take a lot for us to even consider you a decent human being after this.
This guy is a national hero in Thailand and this is not befitting of that title, nor is if befitting of their culture. The video is below, but be warned, we consider it to be very disturbing.
Then, to compound to this, former UFC Featherweight fighter Josh Grispi was arrested not once but twice in Massachusetts for domestic abuse. The second time the police were called in they found her covered in bite marks, apparently Grispi had trained their dogs to attack her. They also found a pot farm and Grispi’s child next to a box with guns and live ammo. Just… why?
The officer at the scene even seemed horrified.
“It’s the worst case of domestic abuse I’ve ever seen,” police officer Richard Harvey said.
Today just sucks to be a fan of combat sports. Just sucks. What is wrong with everyone? [source]
