A few updates on what's been going on in the MMA Twittersphere.
TWITTER FOR DUMMIES
"Wrote this for someone else... but figured I would tweet it too. Crash course in Twitter! http://j-lau.com/1s" -Joe Lauzon, if you don't have, or know much about twitter, here's everything you need to get started.
JOE ROGAN VS SPILLED BAG OF ICE
"Don't blame me, @joerogandotnet! I'm inanimate, helpless to the laws of gravity! ...I was doing my job! I refuse to take the fall... Oh, poor choice of words..." -Spilled Bag of Ice, has a twitter account.
"Hey Guys! Wow! Thanks for the love & support. I'll be back in the octagon! Gonna cut some weight so I stay in the bag next time! WAR SBoI!! ...Cutting weight is not a problem. 90 seconds in the suana (or 15 mins in a glass) and I'm ready." -Spilled Bag of Ice
"I'm clean, -aside from the occassional glass of Scotch I find myself in... & that time Nick Diaz put me in his bong." -Spilled Bag of Ice
"No one can argue that until that cornerman pulled me off, I had Ronys Torres' back!" -Spilled Bag of Ice
"Mo money = mo bitches = mo work = mo haters and mo snitches" -Din Thomas
"Chael is just gettin yall talk!!! LOL...I think its funny!!! ...I, King Mo, of the GDP Party and Team Thirsty Member endorses Republican Party Member Chael Sonnen on his campaign 4 the Belt!!!" -King Mo
"Since Seth's fight got canceled, and I have one now scheduled, where should I go train til about mid march before coming back to orlando? ...Hints as to who I'm fighting next: he's older than me. He fights for the UFC... Next hint as to my next UFC opponent: he has a nickname... Next hint: my next opponent is taller than Matt Serra" -Tom Lawlor, turned out it was Tim Credeur. I should've known from the taller than Matt Serra bit, oh wait....
"I dont get how people get mad when a fighter tries to sell a fight...Its called marketting...You gotta have build up or no one would care!!" -King Mo, I don't get how fighters trying to play the heel get mad when fans react... It's called marketing.
MY GRANDPA BEAT UP YOUR GRANDPA, AND SOME GRANDPA WITH YELLOW HAIR CURSED AT HIM
"Thanks for following everyone, as you know I'm on the undercard, but don't worry I'll make sure My fight makes it To the ppv" -Phil Davis, made good of his promise.
"Who do y'all think the UFC will give me next?" -Phil Davis, Matt Hamill I think.
"Nate doesn't have enough shiny trinkets or horse blankets to get into this POW WOW. He's going to be known as, "Chief go home Lumpy." -Chael Sonnen, making good use of his first tweet ever.
"Back home. If u had of told me 10 years ago that one day millions of people would watch me take a nap I might not have believed it. Yikes! ...I feel good & will heal up & be back. Thiago deserves respect and I wish him the best. Cured my insomnia..." -Mike Swick
"I wont tap to a choke in a fight. I'll get out or pass out. Stubborn! ;) ...Yes its jacked. I'll have updates this week." -Mike Swick, says aside from passing out, he also injured his elbow.
"Felt bad Goldie and Rogan were forced to talk sooo much during the ufc.. The figths were extremely disappointing. Felt like most guys were just trying really hard not to lose... Boring... Wow... And I wrote that coment even before I had a chance to watch the rolles Gracie fight... Wow... That was the ufc. We paid for it... Just because his last name was Gracie. The other day Herschel Walker fought his debut on a main card... What is happening with the sport??? ...Now we have people saying "its either THIS or Starbucks" or former NFL starts making their debut on the main card of one of the biggest Shows on the planet. Then we just watch a HW preliminary fight IN THE UFC that we could have seen better skill on a youtube amateur video.Its getting so ugly, so bad. Right in front of all of our eyes. Sucks. Make hireon vs Riggs a prelim and Walker a main card... It goes on... Its painful to think about it but I will be walking away fro my passion and sport before it gets too nasty for me." -Jorge Gurgel, is getting a bit dramatic. Also, Herschel Walker's situation is completely different from Rolles'.
"I love randy but i feel bad for coleman...he looked like the yellow guy from sin city!" -Seth Petruzelli
"coleman said some stuff about my family. So I said "pay backs a bitch". That was it. I will defend my family every time." -Tito Ortiz
"2 little? Look at the old days of the UFC. I would bet 100k of my own money on it.After I fu*k this Brit up,I want to kick big mouths ass." -Josh Koscheck, now unlike some people, that doesn't sound forced at all.. Smack talk 101.
FATTENING SWEETS & OPPONENTS TURNED FRIENDS
"Sweets from Gono... Damn, I think Gono is trying to make me fat. Ha!" -Jon Fitch, seemed to have developed a good relationship with his past opponent. Also looks like Mir ate a few of these too.
