The Associated Press reports that billionaire Elon Musk has recently reached an agreement to purchase the popular social media platform Twitter for the price of $44 billion. Musk is reportedly intent on loosening moderation on the platform and says he hopes to make the service “better than ever.”

“Free speech is the bedrock of a functioning democracy, and Twitter is the digital town square where matters vital to the future of humanity are debated,” Musk said in a statement released on his own social media account.

As one of the backbones for communication in the MMA world, then, it’s no surprise that fighters had a few of their own opinions about the news. And what better place to share those opinions, than on Twitter itself.
