Is Alex Reid good for UK MMA?

Since he started dating Tabloid hound Jordan/Katie Price Alex Reid has put MMA on the front pages of Britains newpapers and magazines...

but coverage has been almost totally negative... with allegations of anything from his drug use to his dodgy acting roles to his passion for kinky sex and cross dressing being reported right or wrongly alongside the sport in which he competes...

is the fact that he's got MMA mainstrem media attention a good thing regardless?

Or is the fact that 8-8-1 Reid is representing the sport in the mainstream instead of ppl like Bisping or Hardy something that is basically bad for the sport's growth in the UK??

Here's a funny Tee I put together about the whole thing!

Is he a bigger jackass than Bisping?

Wait, that's impossible.

So, even if he isn't good for UK MMA, he's better than the alternative.

Reid is 8-8-1 with loses to Murilo Rua and Professor X and Dave Menne.

He acts like he's the man but he isn't. It's probably not his fault but coverage surrounding him is giving UK MMA a bad name IMO. And hes the ONLY MMA fighter mainstream British media EVER reports on! and thats sleezy stories about his sex life and his love of cross dressing!

Bisping is interesting actually, he's from the North of england, culturally he loves to 'banter'. most of it is in gest... but too much of his humor is lost in transation... trash talking hendo was dumb. agreed. as was his behaviour post Hamil, but the guy is actually alot more humble and down to earth than alot of people in America think...

And also isn't as universally loved in the UK as the UFC seems to want AMerican fans to think :)

Are you trying to argue Bisping is bad for UK MMA?

I'm not trying to argue anything.

I'm stating that Bisping is good for nothing, and that includes british MMA.

Would you say he's insignificant?
