It was an action packed, controversial card of fights. Fans saw four knockouts, and while there weren't any submissions, most of the decisions were tough, back and fourth, closely contested bouts. Liz Carmouche and Lauren Murphy raised a few eyebrows when Carmouche got the decision and Al Iaqunita had some harsh words for fans who felt that Jorge Masvidal deserved the win. Of course, it's not just the fighters in the cage who have strong opinions. Lots of teammates were online to cheer for their guys/gals in the cage and a few more fighters were there just to heckle from the sidelines like the rest of us. Here are all the best hits from UFC fighters on Twitter:
