This past June the Los Angeles Kings professional hockey team ended a 45-year long championship drought to win their first ever Stanley Cup. They defeated the New Jersey Devils in six games to become the NHL’s 2011-2012 season champion.

The UFC extended a VIP invitation to the team via the promotions official twitter account.

“We got a VIP ticket with Lord Stanley’s name on it for #UFConFOX at Staples.”

However it seems as though the victory may have gone to the heads of the LA Kings or at least the heads of the individuals who run the official twitter account.

“Sorry. The cup is only for those who play a real sport.”

The Tweets have since been deleted however they can be viewed here. The tweet was replaced by another.

“We may be busy parading our big shiny trophy around the world.”

The UFC immediately fired back by posting a picture of the seven title holders and the message “Our checking line > your checking line”

The tweets may not reflect the views of the entire LA Kings roster and staff. However it seems that someone in the front office may not be very fond of the sport of Mixed Martial Arts.
