Bernard Hopkins Takes Shot at MMA

Stop me if you've heard this one before: a legendary figure from the boxing world has decided to take a couple of shots at MMA. This time its Bernard Hopkins who has decided to join the MMA bashing party.

Speaking to BoxingScene.com, "The Executioner" took a page out of Bob Arum's handbook, comparing MMA to "entertainment porno."

"Everybody is different but I don't want to watch two grown men wrestling with panties on. I'm from the hood, we don't play that. To me, I'm not buying a ticket to watch two grown men with panties on, sweating, with nuts in their face. That's not me. To compare that to boxing is ludicrous. It's a porno - it's an entertainment porno. I'm not wrestling a guy with panties on and his nuts in my face."
