A few updates on what's been going on in the MMA Twitterverse
GUESS WHO'S BACK
"WM back in the muthaf*ckin house!!!!!! F*Ck JAIL! Sh*t's whack! I'm skinny/fat/pale! Need a tune-up! Can't wait to train monday! ...Thanks to all of you who stood by me sending emails/letters/books etc. It helped a lot! Weird to be out, doesn't feel real. The year=blur" -War Machine, is out after a year in jail... I wonder if he will ever unblock me from twitter. He went on a twitter blocking party a few years back and I didn't even know why I was included.
"I'm having a harder time my 1st day out than I did the whole year in jail. Hard to explain this f*cked up feeling, feel like crying... I have a lot of friends and a career to go to too...can't imagine how hard it is for the guys who don't have shit. No wonder 65%+ go back." -War Machine, maybe he blocked me cause of my beard.
"Last night was rough for me...really emotional: sad, angry, scared, worried..cried like a b*tch too.Coming back from jail=harder than 1yr... hard to explain...weird. Anyway, did some BJJ today felt great to train, got tired as sh*t but it's to be expected. Startin to feel better 2... Gotta see my probation officer Wed. I really hope he isn't a DICK. F*ck. I don't want any problems. I just want to train/teach/fight. LIVE." -War Machine
"Man am I rusty as fuck sparring! Timing is all off..holding my breath.Can't wait to be normal again! It's disheartening feeling so shitty! ...And of course my stubborn ass isn't easing into training..lol Sore as hell! Insomnia too...grr! Sparring tomorrow again hopefully do better!" -War Machine

"I'd fight my sister for the appropriate amount of money. That amount? Sixteen dollars... If @DanaWhite asked me to fight my mother, I would guillotine her in the nicest way possible. My dad? Get KO bonus and buy him a truck." -Jason Miller
"Is Joey Beltran @Mexicutioner760 the official UFC greeter? He's welcoming another heavyweight to the UFC at 136" -UFC, just called Beltran their gatekeeper. Not that there's anything wrong with that.
