I'm just glad that everyone who wakes up right now has to read about an impressive Dong first thing in the morning. #ufc

If I were 8 - when I thought you could legitimately push someone's nose into their brain to kill them - that KO would've been even scarier.

Don't go into the light John Hathaway

— Stephie D (@CrooklynMMA) March 1, 2014

Well, I won't be needing coffee this morning. #HOLYOHMYGODTHATJUSTHAPPENED #TUFChina

A counter spinning back elbow knockout for Stun Gun Kim? Counter elbow on a an elbow attempt by Hathaway? That is wild.

— Brett Okamoto (@bokamotoESPN) March 1, 2014

Kim perhaps prematurely scouting out some cageside talent for his post-fight celebration.

Apparently MMA judging sucks worldwide. #TUFChinaFinale

I totally expected way more wire-fighting from this event. Color me disappointed.

+100 goes to Mitrione for realizing that Jordan was still hurt after trying to regroup, flurrying again and getting the R1 buzzer-beater KO.

@MMAjunkieDann Is that guy dressed as a tampon?

I need some coffee to stay up for these next fights...where is Pat Cummins when you need him? #TUFChina

— MMA Roasted (@MMARoasted) March 1, 2014

A lot at stake for these two fighters, not the least of which is the honor of their respective villages and clans.

Man!!!! Dude with hair lost more brain cells in this fight than Matsui during his entire career in Pride! #ultimatefightnight

Korean Bulldozer, Filipino wrecking machine...lots of destruction in the UFC

Nam Phan didn't do his Homework on Vaughan Lee...making it the first time an Asian guy didn't do his Homework. #ufc

The ufc keeps looking for their Yao Ming but they only find their Dong Fangzhuo's.

Excerpt from memoirs: "My low point came in 2014. It was 6:45am and I was watching a commercial where Mike Dolce yelled at me about fitness"

— Chris Nelson (@3amMMA) March 1, 2014

Rumor has it UFC considered booking Bob Sapp for this card but they opted to air a 15-second UFC Fit commercial instead. Otherwise, no time.

— Ariel Helwani (@arielhelwani) March 1, 2014

This UFC event is the only time I would ever stay up till 5 AM to see a Dong. #ufc

— MMA Roasted (@MMARoasted) March 1, 2014

@TCritchfield52 Thank you for that share, Tristen. I'll go next. Hi, my name is Mike, and it's been 0 days since my last Fight Pass.

— Mike Whitman (@mikewhitmanmma) March 1, 2014

Can't help but feel like Fedor is fighting later when I wake up at 3 am for a card.

— TJ De Santis (@TJDeSantis) March 1, 2014

Wow, that knee was square to the face. Maybe my dreams have come true and everyone made a secret gentlemen's agreement to use One FC rules?
