The UFC welterweight contender, Belal Muhammad, posted, “Pathetic people say pathetic things.”

Also, fellow MMA journalist James Lynch suggested, “Ignore them. Like I said @WillHarrisAOAF a few months ago, that’s like a garbage man giving medical advice to a doctor. People like this act this way because they aren’t dealing with their own issues and are trying to bring you to their level.”

An excellent MMA content creator, Will Harris, said, “All facts, ignore them @HelenYeeSports . Anyone trying to do something good in their life will always be trolled by people who don’t have the balls to pursue their own passions and dreams.”

Another media member, Amy Kaplan, wrote, “Wow what ac**t.”

Alex Behunin said, “Jealousy at its finest, What a loser.”

Also, a UFC vet, Jake Shields, said, “You should have seen all the doubters when I told people I was gonna be a pro fighter.”
