EVERYONE WANTS A TITLE SHOT
"I deserve a title shot period" -Hector Lombard comma might need to fight one more time before getting that shot period
"After last night I know that I am the TRUE no 1 contender. I'm just not a good enough self promoter. #fuckpolitics #immortalchamp2014" -Matt Brown
"Who wants to see me fight @JohnyHendricks in vancouver for the @ufc welterweight title? Bringing the title back to canada!! @danawhite" -Rory MacDonald, didn't you just lose to Lawler?
"Title Shot! What's is the question!? @danawhite @ufc @lorenzofertitta let's go!" -Tyron Woodley, what about all 4 guys fight each other, and have Diaz rematch Lawler. Most impressive win gets a title shot. How's that?
TWITTER RANDOMNESS AT ITS FINEST: GEORGE LUCAS' DAUGHTER VS. OMG "FACTS"
"George Lucas wanted Tupac Shakur to play a Jedi for Star Wars: The Phantom Menace in 1996." -OMG Facts
"Amanda Lucas, also random, this DEEP champ had a small role on that specific Star Wars movie.
"ppl wanna see me & @NateDiaz209 fight @NateDiaz209 I suggest u quit acting like a scared little bi**h & fight me do I have to go 209 on u" -Michael Johnson, might need some punctuation tips from Lombard.
"Why won't he sign? What else is he going to do? Go play tennis? That's out. He's got a racket but has no balls." -Chael Sonnen, now Wand can simply insert any 'YOU want to joke about testicles' line and we'd get a good twitter beef running.
"Weidmen checks kick Silva breaks leg =good technic by fans/media, Woodley double legs Condit blows out knee =fluke by fans/media Will Brooks, to be fair, while both are freak injuries, checking kicks really are meant to hurt the opponents shin, while a takedown aren't really made for damaging knees." -
"Backstreet Boys coming to Omaha June 9th!! This is so happening. Must re learn all the dances." -Drew Dober
"How many more years do I have before I get that weird, old guy smell? #ThingsiThinkAbout" -Kenny Florian
High school kid almost took me out when he lost control on the country road. Was doing 100 easy and lost it in turn. pic.twitter.com/KP6v79s18u— Pat Miletich (@patmiletich) March 13, 2014
Nice article in a dutch newspaper: "The Skyscraper is almost back" TRUE!! pic.twitter.com/07E452WW9G— Stefan Struve (@StefanStruve) March 13, 2014
"I wasn't my self last night I sustained Food poisoning from eating a beef tar tar with raw quail egg as a appetizer at dinner. This was my own mistake I ordered it thinking I need red meat but raw was the wrong choice, I threw up first at at 2am & all day fight day... This was not part of @TheDolceDiet I screwed my self! I thought because I had done everything do perfect I could sway a little & it cost me. I was weak and my performance showed it if you notice I don't go for one takedown because I just didn't have the strength... Jury and his team fought a good fight against me and they did win, but I wanted my fans to know the truth why I was not all there. Take what you want from it it is the truth. I made a horrible choice and it's no ones fault but mine." -Diego Sanchez
"People can talk all the shit they want. I didn't bitch out. I chased him around and fought hard even at my worst. It just wasn't my night... I'm heart broken and very very motivated it hurts so bad. I'll be back better than ever!" -Diego Sanchez
