If he sees something homoerotic about MMA, I'd say he's looking for it.
By his logic, amateur wrestling would be homoerotic. Hell, like half of the sports in the Olypmics would be homoerotic(men's swimming/diving/volleyball)
The problem is with this is merely the ignorant mentality of many stubborn middle-aged sports writers who just don't "get" MMA and in turn, get grumpy and confused when they see it getting covered.
