A few updates on what's been going on in the MMA Twitterverse
"Japan, my heart goes out to you. Stay positive. Stay strong. 日本、あなたのために私の心。滞在正。滞在強い。" -Mayhem Miller
"A fighter is training for a purpose: He has a fight. I’m a martial artist. I don’t train to fight. I train for myself... Why do you train?" -Georges St. Pierre
"Training is fantastic here in London. What a surprise I had when I saw my friend Buiu training in London for the next mundial... I am fascinated to see how good Roger and Braulio are! There is no room to move AMAZING!" -Georges St. Pierre, is training with the right people to prepare for Jake Shields.
"Yes mauricio was actually the first fighter I would watch repeatedly when I was learning #mma then came Anderson" -Jon Jones
"You can tell when someone is broken mentally because they stop fighting to win and start fighting not to lose." -Georges St. Pierre, which ironically, is what he has been criticized for after the Serra fight.

There are a ton of tweets after the jump, but first, if you have a twitter account, don't forget to follow:
The Official BloodyElbow Twitter Account, Luke Thomas, Kid Nate, Brent Brookhouse, Mike Fagan, Leland Roling, Richard Wade, Jonathan Snowden, Duane Finley, Chris Barton, Damon O, Tim Burke, Matt Bishop... oh and maybe you all should follow that guy named Anton Tabuena
HI! I'M PRETENDING TO BE YOUR #1 FAN! OH, AND IT'S MY BIRTHDAY ALSO! CAN I GET AN RT PLZ?
"When is it an appropriate time to retweet tweets? Should I retweet anyone who messages me lol? Still a lil confused on the rules of twitter" -Chris Weidman, Dear fighters, here's the thing. I know a ton of fighters do it, but I don't care if it's your #1 fan's best friend's mom's birthday, DO NOT RT EVERY SINGLE MESSAGE YOU GET. It's annoying and people will (or should) unfollow you. Interacting and replying to fans is great, and so is the occasional retweet, but you don't have to show the entire world every single conversation that people don't really care about. Thanks.
BOBBY LASHLEY WORKING ON HIS CARDIO
"Two weeks til my fight and my cardio is at an all time high!" -Bobby Lashley, considering his last bout, that's not exactly a high benchmark. But hey, he might not need it since he's fighting a middleweight with a (9-7) record
