DoB[edit]

I'm guessing from here http://www.mmauniverse.com/news/SS4528 that his birthdate is roughly 16th of July, 1975. Anybody got something more accurate? Mathmo Talk 07:45, 9 November 2009 (UTC)

LGBT?[edit]

During a conversation in the CBB house, Baldwin said to Reid "I think you have some homosexuality in you". Reid replied: "Oh yeah, I'm trysexual". Doesn't that make him a self-identified LGBT person? They didn't appear to be joking. Lkjhgfdsa 0 (talk) 16:36, 20 January 2010 (UTC)

It's an interesting issue but I suspect we should leave out as there's not much beyond this to suggest that Reid is attracted sexually to other men or has acted on that attraction. I think, however, we're on firmer ground with the T is LGBT. He has been open about his cross-dressing and this is recognised as one of the transgender identities. Cross-dressers are frequently, of course, heterosexual. Can we add a LGBT person from t — Preceding unsigned comment added by Contaldo80 (talkcontribs) 14:03, 5 February 2010

Katie Price[edit]

The article says "not long afterwards it appeared to remain intact" - they actually got back together after four days. But I don't have a source for it. AnemoneProjectors (talk) 13:39, 3 February 2010 (UTC)

Advertisement, and the Barrett match[edit]

I think the section about the Jason Barrett show and the build up to it needs to be changed, it reads a lot like an advert with a lot of the sources seemingly being from UCMMA.com who obviously have a vested interest in pushing that it was a legitimate match. I think it is very clear that suspect editing has taken place, there was no mention of the widely held view that the build up and match itself was staged until I put it in a few moments ago but the rest of the article needs re-writing. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Cjr1993 (talkcontribs) 06:59, 23 August 2012 (UTC)

Blantant signs of unethical editing[edit]

Again all mention of the widely held belief that the event with Jason Barrett and its build up were fixed have been completely removed. Additionally, the entire article remains worded in an advertisement esque manner and the fact that large sections are apparently taken from a fan club website are clear signs of a complete lack of objectivity in its writing and I highly suspect that the removal of any potentially negative aspects were done in order to fit with the promotional intent of the editor. A lock of some form needs to happen on this article and a member with a history of clearly referenced and objective editing to Mixed Martial Arts articles should be required to complete its re-authoring in order to solve its issues of significant bias. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Cjr1993 (talkcontribs) 13:24, 4 December 2012

  • Oppose - no benefit from ambiguating the fighter's article WP:RECENT; Also the most notable of the various Alex Reid in G books is Whistler and Van Gogh's friend Alex Reid the Glasgow art dealer. In ictu oculi (talk) 23:31, 23 August 2013 (UTC)
  • Oppose per IIO -- 76.65.128.222 (talk) 12:16, 25 August 2013 (UTC)
  • Oppose. Recentism. However, I would support moving this page to Alexander Reid after the article currently there is moved to Alexander Reid (playwright). I think it's best to move the disambiguation page to the full version of the name. -- Necrothesp (talk) 10:00, 27 August 2013 (UTC)
    • Comment "this page" as in the MMA fighter, or the disambiguation page? Your comment seems to indicate the disambiguation page, but this page is the MMA fighter... -- 76.65.128.222 (talk) 04:19, 28 August 2013 (UTC)
