Keep Celebrating

For some reason, Steve Cofield is trying to defend Matt Hamill's post-fight celebration because he's deaf. I'm not an expert on deafness, but I'm pretty sure it had little to do with Hamill's five minute romp around the cage while Mark Munoz was dying on the mat. If you think about it, his deafness should impede celebrations. He can't hear the fans going nuts. For all he knows, a man eating lion is behind him and everyone is standing and yelling to get his attention.

Our culture as a whole has become way too politically correct about disabilities. Disabled people have the same emotions as the rest of us. Hamill was excited by ending a fight in dramatic fashion. It's not like he squatted over Munoz's face and farted on him. There is nothing to defend and his deafness should not even enter the discussion. Guy got excited like any other winning fighter. I'm glad he showed emotion and I hope he continues to in the future.

Those post-fight speeches are also classic and should be sent to the Smithsonian.
