Is MMA Shit Talk Crossing The Line? | Damien Trites Has A Message For New Fighters

11Mar

Welcome back to Pure EVil MMA! Today we are joined by a true vet, Damien "The Omen" Trites, who discusses the new age of MMA turning down a dangerous path after fighters like Conor McGregor blew up by running his mouth and winning his fights. Now fighters think talking shit or herrasing people is the only way to make a name for themselves but what happens when you piss off the wrong person? What happens when a line is crossed with family beliefs and having respect? Do fighters know the difference anymore between promoting yourself or fight and crossing the line where it becomes threatening. What happens when the wrong person is offended? Social media is also another tool that people are using to push buttons and start conflict. Damien makes some great points about this issue and wants to raise awareness of the dangers that one day will happen like we saw between Conor and Khabib a few months back. Where do we draw the line?
