Deadspin got embarrassingly trolled by Ted Cruz on Twitter yesterday, and as expected from the preachy formerly popular sports blog, they are not taking it well. Deadspin’s editor-in-chief Tim Marchman is now attacking all Ted Cruz supporters, and anyone who trolled him on Twitter after Ted Cruz owned Deadspin of n Twitter, challenging his haters to fights “in the UFC octagon.” This is absolutely hilarious, a blogger his so butt hurt that his blog got embarrassed on Twitter by Ted Cruz, that he wants to physically fight trolls. Anyone who has ever trained MMA knows that you sound like someone who has never trained MMA if you challenge someone else to a fight “in the UFC octagon”. Walk into any Jiu Jitsu class or Muay Thai class across the country, and say to someone “I challenge you to a fight in the UFC octagon”, you won’t get beat up – you’ll get laughed out of the gym.
When it comes down to it, Deadspin is a dinosaur blog that was once popular when there were no other options, now that blogs like Barstool and SportSmasher offer more entertaining sports blog options than super serious and preachy Deadspin the site is going extinct.
Deadspin, you got absolutely embarrassed by Ted Cruz, and it was hilarious. Admit it and laugh it off. Definitely do not challenge all of your Twitter trolls to “face me in the UFC octagon”. You’re a blogger. You are definitely not a fighter, and based on the way you talk, I can tell you’ve never achieved beyond a white belt in a martial art. I’ve trained Jiu Jitsu for years, I have never heard someone with skill say something as ridiculous as that, martial artists are not dudes who need to run their mouths about fighting because they know they have the skill to fight.
Just for kicks, I hope one of the Twitter trolls is a low level martial artist, who shows up at Deadspin and teaches this blogger to stick to blogging the hard way. Live stream it please.
UPDATE: Nice knowing you Tim Marchman:
