How's Taste My Tweet Tweet? Mixed Martial Arts on Twitter for the 1st Week of 2011


A few updates on what's been going on in the MMA Twitterverse



"OMG we made @'s weekly list TWICE! so proud. "  -UFC, I'm still trying to make their "Tweets of the Week" list. Any ideas? Getting signed into the UFC, then tweeting funny stuff may be too hard... What if I just started posting nudes?

"I may not be the prettiest fighter, but I may not, not be the prettiest."  -Amir Sadollah, channels his inner blue steel.

"Someone please explain to me the fish lips puckered face picture. PLEASE, FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THATS HOLY, EXPLAIN!"  -Gabe Ruediger, are you talking about Amir's Zoolander look?

"Is the butt drag/checking the oil legal or illegal in mma? Lol I was just asked that ? And couldn't give a answer."  -Anthony Johnson

"How many followers play WOW? ...I got it for Christmas. Gonna try it... Games are great. I need to be sponsored by gamestop."  -Frank Mir, will join Jens Pulver as the few fighters who are addicted to World of Warcraft?

"Back at the gym training this morning. It felt good to hit something that wasn't the bottle."  -Danny Downes

"Tomorrow my training camp for my Title fight vs Marloes Coenen begins!! Follow me on Twitter @ i appreciate ur support!! ...I'm hoping for the March 5th card but Im not sure"  -

"First move I'll show if I coach TUF again is the kneebar!"  -Frank Mir

"I doubt that article. There's no way he's not training... Cain get well soon sorry to hear about the injury. Now there's 2 guys for me to to #TUF against. Brock or JDS either one works for me."  -Frank Mir

"Thank you to all my fans for all the great support I'm going to miss entertaining you. I'll still be involved in the sport for life. I'm excited to continue to help the sport I love grow"  -Chuck Liddell, a legend retires.

"Looks good for Toronto and machida April 30 . 2011 is looking fantastic already . Proud of gray maenad he's come along way in 5 years !"  -Randy Couture, and the other legend keeps on chugging.

"I hope this whole Chael Sonnen news doesn't affect his real estate or political career. *totally kidding Chael*"  -Kenny Florian

"Want a shoutout from your favorite fighter? Tell us who you'd most love to hear from on Twitter!"  -UFC, I really want to hear from Logan Stanton... oh wait, you guys fired her already.


"the pace of the fights tonight have me gassed out"  -Shane Carwin

"Wow that slapping was so disrespectful.. id love to give him a slap in the face"  -Jon Jones, isn't happy about Thiago Silva's slaps during the bout against Brandon Vera.

"For all the Tiago silva fans who had a problem with my comment, I want you all to know that I stand behind what I said 100%. Dominating someone in a fight is 1 thing, looking to simply humiliate them is another... Traditional martial artist always seemed to show honor and respect.. Anyways what's done is done, I'm headed to the gym to make sure nothing like that ever happens to me.. ttyl"  -Jon Jones

"@ and @ are both awesome, amazing fighters. Much respect... But seriously, what's the point in having 10 points, if they are only gonna use 2 max?... I've never seen a round more deserving of 10-7"  -Mac Danzig, Exactly. Lot's of people complain about the scoring system, but I don't think the problem is the 10 point must... The problem is that most judges uses a 10-9 point must system (with the rare unicorn that is the 10-8).

"Franky fucking Edgar hands up for this kid people , GReat fight Frank , Ton of Spirit , showed what being a fighter is all about . love it"  -Eddie Alvarez, the bellator champ gives his props to the UFC lightweight champ.

"Props to @UFC for showing appreciation to both Gray & I by saying they will give us both win bonuses. Thank you!! @danawhite @lorenzofertitta... Great to be back in NJ thanks for all the support! U fans are unbelievable! U make my job all worth the while!! -Frankie Edgar

"Thank u to all who support me, Chris Leben, and most of all my heroes our men and women in uniform... Can't believe I said "Golly" but my daughter was watchin and normally I am an F bomb machine"  -

"Week of gluttony update: consumed 20 cookies and currently demolishing a tray of pizza, Joe Silva please do not call for a week!"  -



"On my laptop with the belts in the background haha getting ready for tonight!"  -Alistair Overeem


"220lbs tonight"  -Jon Jones, preparing for his bout against Ryan Bader


"best shirt evar!!!!!"  -


"UFC 127 headliner @ shows his support"  -UFC


"Trigg and I have an " interesting" on air bet we will do for aoki vs nagashima! Will be embarrassing on air for the loser! Watch n see!"  -

"Audition time! Sheesh I am so bad at make-up.. It takes me foreva!! :P"  -Natasha Wicks, Dana White doesn't listen to the internet, but apparently he thinks twitter isn't a part of it... so, go spam him with this #BringLoganandNatashaBack
