Daily Show's John Oliver: MMA Gayest Thing I've Ever Seen

In a recent episode of The Daily Show, British comedian John Oliver points out that TV shows have “never been gayer”. He goes on to argue with Jon Stewart proclaiming MMA is “the gayest thing I’ve ever seen”.

“TV has never been gayer! You’ve got Smash, you’ve got Glee and you’ve got that sport where guys roll around and punch each other in the (expletive). What is not gay about that, Jon? I think that might be the the gayest thing I’ve ever seen. That is ‘Ancient Greek’ gay. I don’t want to argue about this, that’s a fact!”

With the controversy of homosexuality coming up every once in a while in the MMA community, what are your thoughts on Oliver’s position on MMA?

Keep in mind UFC President Dana White wants gay fighters to come out of the closet, Big Nog refuses to train with gay fighters, and TUF contestant Dakota Cochrane’s controversial past.
