    Call me crazy......but I believe him, yo. He had the balls to fight Machida, the derring-do to take on GSP, the moxie to mix it up with Hughes. That’s good enough for me. This man is innocent of any and all allegations.

    It's common, and dumb for folks to decide innocent or guilt when an allegation is made.Yet, most live for this today. By the time actual innocent or guilt is decided, no one even cares. That's great for our society. See also Ferguson Mo.
