A few updates on what's been going on in the MMA Twittersphere.
NATE QUARRY WANTS HIS BREAD
"2nd check from Fight Mafia has bounced. its now three months since my fight without receiving a dime from them. this is truth. not slander... nows the part where fight mafia says they're big fans and have nothing but support for me. too bad my mortgage co doesn't take good wishes." -Nate Quarry, do they take bread crumbs?
"It's sad cuz it was such a cool shirt. He bragged about selling 1000 shirts in 4 days of listing them for sale. that's $38,000 folks... if Fight Mafia intended to pay they would've sent a certified check. sendin 2 bad checks is amazing... when you write a check you either have the funds or you dont. so write a certified check if you do.dont send bad checks. especially not two... a published story will be coming out with fight mafias responses and false promises to me. i've done my job. i deserve to be paid." -Nate Quarry
"apparently i'm unprofessional for warning fighters and fans of unscrupulous companies that dont pay. my apologies... i wonder if i had gotten paid but i didnt fight if they would be as understanding. "sorry i didnt fight. let me write you a bad check"... fight mafia flew to the UK for the ufc. while owing me money. thats not bad times. thats bad business.." -Nate Quarry, gets called "unprofessional" for being vocal about unprofessional people..
"Fight Mafia promises to make good on debt by mid of Jan. Believe me, I will be just as loud when he honors his agreement." -Nate Quarry, see, it worked! (or might work)
SO THIS IS THE NEW YEAR, AND I DON'T FEEL ANY DIFFERENT
"2010 is nearly upon us. Lets all get our shit together collectively, fuckers. Together we are stronger...2010 I plan on using twitter for inspiration, for a humorous outlet to entertain, and to spot douche bags. More of the same, actually" -Joe Rogan, has a new years resolution to stay the same.
"I'm in a bad mood. still waiting to hear when I'm gonna fight." -Jay Hieron, the reason he signed with Strikeforce instead of the UFC is to get a title shot.. It seems like the new year won't be any different.
"I'm deathly afraid of hippos" -Daniel Cormier, should stay away from the HW division.
"gray was looking at my tweets & laughing at me cause all I eat is chicken. I told him maybe If I eat enough I can grow wings & fly.." -Jay Hieron, I think Nick Diaz can teach you how to do that.
"only wear rashguards when training or surfing. no other time. i don't care how muscley your muscles are." -Nate Quarry, giving douche proof tips for 2010.
"I hope you all had a great xmas. New Years is almost here! Yes. 2010 will be my year. 09 was a rebuild." -Tito Ortiz, has the same resolution as last year..
"Just got HUGE fight contract, will announce soon!!" -Seth Petruzelli, will rematch Kimbo at 2010?

A petition to get Jason High into the upcoming tourney. Thanks in advance.." -Jason High, starts a twitter movement so he can fight for Bellator in 2010.
"Well… it’s over. Training camp for UFC 108 has officially ended. I did my last day of boxing with Steve Maze this morning and it’s all smooth sailing from here. Tonight I will pop into the gym to see everyone and we fly out tomorrow afternoon.... I should be packed and ready, but I haven’t started yet. I figure its 5:30 now… so I can procrastinate for another hour or so before I head to the gym… then I can play some MW2 and put packing off until tomorrow morning too. But… then I am going to sleep until 10 or so… rush around like an idiot throwing things in my suitcase before rushing to the airport. It’s not the first time and it won’t be the last.... Luckily, anything I forget can be bought in Vegas" -Joe Lauzon, and his brother will be fighting at UFC 108

OH SHIT COPS! WHERE'S MY BLACKBERRY? I HAVE TO TWEET ABOUT IT!
"Ohh shit I'm getting pulled over on the 215." -Jay Hieron, I think it's great that the first thing he does in a situation like that is to tweet about it.
"I was speeding. The cop let me go he was cool he is a fan he said good luck on my next fight. YES SIRRRRR.. Lol" -Jay Hieron, the cop probably read the tweet and decided to let him go.
"There is an internet rumor that i announced my retirement. Dont believe evrythng u read!!!" -Rich Franklin, I don't believe you!
I HATE PIKEYS
"it was only 80 dollars difference, so I got the 37", now I have no money :(, I need to fight... I'd rather enjoy myself and be poor, then have money and not enjoy watching snatch and fifth element" -Brett Cooper, well he does drive a hard bargain bringing up Snatch.
"Who's got the Lightsaber app for iPhone?? U can make ur own profile and shit. Guess what I named my guy....Jason Highwalker, don't hate." -Jason High
