Jamie Yager may have had a rough night on Wednesday watching his elimination from “The Ultimate Fighter" Season 11, but nothing like the storm of controversy he was hit with first thing Thursday morning. An account on Twitter that was said to be Jamie Yager’s went on a hate filled tirade aimed at Tito Ortiz, and several media outlets picked up on the back and forth, reporting the heated exchange between the former coach and fighter. The only problem, Yager says it wasn’t him. "Basically, I woke up today about like 9 o'clock west coast time, and my phone's blowing up like 'dude, what's going on? What's up with you and Tito?’" he told MMAWeekly Radio on Thursday night. As the confusion washed over him, Yager hit the Internet and saw the barrage of messages and media outlets reporting on his "feud" with Tito Ortiz. Blindsided by the whole incident, Yager immediately alerted everyone involved that while he does have his own Twitter account (www.twitter.com/jamieyager) the person posing as him posting the messages was an imposter.

So the title says no TUF spoilers, but the first sentence is a spoliler. Good job

I don't think you can spoil a show that aired multiple times already.

And it doesn't spoil future episodes. If it hadn't already aired they couldn't talk about it.

Absolutely correct.

You know, I love that people can just say "it was an impostor on my twitter." I've had my twitter account for 2+ years and it's never been hacked. How do all these celebrities (and Yager is NOT a celebrity) keep getting their sh*t hacked? Nobody has ever written on my twitter that wasn't me. I should post a tirade on my twitter and then claim it was an impostor.

were the tweets coming from the account that he's saying is his? I didn't get the impression he was saying someone posted from his twitter account but that someone made another twitter account and pretended to be him.

no, the twitter account the stuff was posted under was the_chosyn_one or something, not jamieyager


but apparently the_chosyn_one was listed as his account on facebook and by his management, until sometime this afternoon.

Simple. Make an account under that celeb's name. If ti's taken, add something like "The" or "TheReal" or similar to the front of it. If it's an athlete, maybe put their jersey number at the end.

You're also not on TV once a week being viewed by millions of people.

I am completly over anything yager has to say or do. His wins on the show , actually show the level of talent the show brings. Yager's stand-up, while extremly flashy is atrociuos. As proved by his Josh last Wed! He is completly wide open every time he throws a strike. I really dont think he had the skills to fight in the UFC. Even at the lowest tier of the MW div.
