    Hey guys, I remember back in 2010 or maybe 2011 that Lorenzo Fertita, along with some people from ESPN went to Congress to defend themselves against the owner of JustinTV. The Congressman really took it to Lorenzo. I remember Lorenzo was giving a speech about how hard he and his employees had to work to build the UFC and then the Congressman, who was African-American cut off Lorenzo and said "I'm very proud of you" and he really put Lorenzo down a peg or two for no real reason. The owner of JustinTV was African-American as well.

    Does anyone remember this? I couldn't find a link on Youtube.

    Thanks!

    this. And using the term african american as opposed to black doesn't dull down the race aspect at all.

    "Hey guys, anyone have a video of that black dude sticking up for that other black dude?" obviously there's a good reason behind wantig that :rolleyes:

    Yes, this is quite an odd posting! But frankly I'm interested in hearing key members of the mma community defend the sport to key politicians...

    Some people are obsessed with it. Everything in their lives somehow relates back to that conflict.

    A truly pathetic way to exist.
