Twitter bicker: Pettis vs. The Punk


UFC lightweight champion Anthony Pettis fights Gilbert Melendez following a stint as opposing coaches on The Ultimate Fighter. UFC lightweight contender Josh "The Punk" Thomson is recovering from hand surgery for injuries sustained vs. Benson Henderson in Jan.

However, although a fight between the pair is not imminent, the two never the less got in a Twitter bicker last night.

Norms @ItsNorms
@Showtimepettis he is hiding from @THEREALPUNK thats what's up.

Anthony Pettis @Showtimepettis
@ItsNorms @THEREALPUNK for sure I hate getting paid!!! Lol

@Showtimepettis @ItsNorms i'll see ya soon lil guy.

Anthony Pettis @Showtimepettis
@THEREALPUNK when I come back running thru the whole top ten, hopefully ur still around!

@Showtimepettis I like you, but you had your chance to fight me and you pulled out. So don't act tough now behind your keyboard kid.

TAP NAP SNAP ‏@Tap_Nap_Snap 
@THEREALPUNK @Showtimepettis Whatever happened to the days of shut up and fight? We as MMA fans miss the older schooled fighters!

Josh Thomson ‏@THEREALPUNK  
@Tap_Nap_Snap @Showtimepettis because NO ONE cared about mma before the Fertitta's bought the #ufc

TAP NAP SNAP ‏@Tap_Nap_Snap  
@THEREALPUNK @Showtimepettis Not entirely true. #noholdsbarred was the shit. Eventually the top guys will fight each other #notalkneeded

Here is another way to go about it.

Brad Pickett @One_Punch
Hey @Unclecreepymma you think you might be fit to fight for the 31th May in Berlin or 19th July in Ireland ? #unfinishedbusiness

Ian McCall @Unclecreepymma
@One_Punch ya I should be good by then. I'm fragile lately so don't wanna make any promises haha

So what do you think UG? Is pre fight trash talk on Twitter a necessary part of the landscape now?

Twitter is the gayest shit in the history of the gay universe.  I can't believe adults, like grown-up human beings that have graduated high school, actually A) use this shit, or B) follow other idiots that use this shit.

Bold part is the sender's name and twitter handle. Then @whoever@whoever are the recipients' twitter handles followed by the message.

Pettis is on the sideline quite a bit with injuries. What else should be called if he's arguing on twitter more than he's fighting?
