A few updates on what's been going on in the MMA Twittersphere.
HOW MANY CALLS DID DANA WHITE GET?
":-D my pleasure. Call my office 2 morrow 702 221 4781" -Dana White, tweeted his phone number to over a million fans.
"I fucked up and tweeted my number lol but I got to talk to a lot of cool people. Thank u all!!!" -Dana White
"hahaha!!! Been there!! " -Joe Rogan, also tweeted his number a few weeks back, and instead of changing his number, he decided to keep it up as a "fan line".

"almost ready 2 sign the bout agreement! i would tell yall who im gonna get down with,but i cant spell his name....hahaha" -Rampage Jackson, I'd be bummed if he's talking about Soszynski... haha.
THE SCARY MONSTER IS NOT EVEN GROWN UP YET
"That's right today i turned 23.. Haha grown man strength coming soon to a fight near you" -Jon Jones, is like that doberman pup that everyone is scared off, but then they realize he's not even fully grown yet. Wait, you're not scared of puppies?
"Just found out matyushenko's saying i haven't fought anybody yet... really hope i don't have another talker on my hands" -Jon Jones, jeez.. Vera isn't a "talker", and Matyushenko certainly isn't one either... I'd like to see him face guys like Chael or Tito just to see how he reacts.
