UFC 165 TWEETS YOU MAY HAVE MISSED

"#MMA: there is a huge difference between good and great. Jones is good, Cain is great." -Dave Camarillo
"Remember: to be great you must be challenged by amazing competition. Anyone can look great fighting sub-par opponents... Jones needs more fights like last night to prove he is great. He has it in him.
#ufc" -Dave Camarillo
"That fight was just what I needed" -Jon Jones
"Cain vs Jones would be good for Cain. The reason is, Cain's division is currently a little weak. Cain needs better competition... JDS is the strongest prospect to beat Cain. He's tough" -Dave Camarillo
@dc_mma has the best wrestling in #mma... I've seen him throw great fighters over his head in sparring!" -Dave Camarillo, who then retweeted fans saying that DC would wreck Jones seeing that Gus was able to take Jones down.
I REALLY HOPE THE JUDGES DON'T THINK THIS WAY
"Guys just remembering that in a close decision the champion keeps the belt because the challenger must have a clear victory to win the fight" -Junior Dos Santos, someone tell him this is not the way things work.
"To recap: I clearly had Gustafsson for rnd 1 & 2. Had Jones winning 3, 4 & 5. In close rnds, u have to assume rnds will go to champ. #ufc165" -Kenny Florian
