- Following Larson’s apology, Marcus Stroman tweeted “Your apology doesnt matter. Post-career… I’ll fight this man in a UFC event for charity. He needs his ass beat.”
He should never be allowed to race again in @NASCAR. Said that derogatory word so nonchalantly. Your apology doesn’t matter. Post-career…I’ll fight this man in a @ufc event for charity. He needs his ass beat. Would love to hear him say that word in the octagon! https://t.co/lZ4Hg1fxsw
