It seemed like a harmless joke to me. But who knows.

Honestly it seemed light hearted to me. Just a joke.

McGregor overreacted.

MMA fans post stuff like that all the time. Most of us can laugh at our selves:

It's ironic that McGregor told Brimage to lighten up after the weigh in fiasco and then loses his cool at something seemingly harmless.

BUT

There does seem to be a group of hard headed boxers that think most mma fighters would get their ass kicked in a fight with a boxer and that mma is gay.

That's why I wish we got to see Randy v Tony in their primes. They need to get an elite boxer that's dumb enough to think they would knock out any mma fighter and put them against Funky Ben Askren.

I think he's bitter about McGregor succeeding at the highest level of his sport. I also find it harmless.

I understand why McGregor got mad. He should have posted something like this in response:

I dont wanna overreact or anything but I think McGregor has the "it" factor to be a superstar which is sorely needed in the smaller mma weight classes.

His debut was easily the most interesting thing I saw watching that show.
