A mid-week social media roundup
Outside of a gym there are few places where mixed martial artists have been putting in more work as of late than on social media. While no fighter has flown off the handles at 3am yet a la Donald Trump, the twitterverse and Instagram space are not without their interesting moments.
From calling out fighters, to being a place to vent, twitter and Instagram pretty much have it all. So let’s take a look at some of the more interesting social media posts of the week thus far:
