Mixed martial arts journalism is a serious business. Following the MMA community on Twitter, is not. The following is a light-hearted (and sometimes insightful) look at how the combat sports world viewed UFC “The Ultimate Fighter 18” Finale via social networking.

Forget high paying jobs, fancy cars and trophy wives. Nothing impresses the folks at a 10-year reunion like a first-round TKO.

Gray Maynard is wandering around the crowd somewhere right now. #TUFFinale

WOW!!! @natediaz209 with the HUGE TKO victory!!! https://t.co/q6a9x39WRg

Nate Diaz just brutalized Gray Maynard. If jumping up right after a stoppage proves it was early, falling down after proves it was just.

Vintage Nathan Diaz. Just beat Gray Maynard senseless with hyperaccurate, rangy punching. Most justified standing stop I've seen in a minute

Just like that! @venezuelanvixen becomes the first ever female Ultimate Fighter winner!! https://t.co/g9se4NE4Ep

Mario Yamasaki stopped the fight with one second to go in R1. Mistake? Rakoczy wasn't hurt. Just overwhelmed by Pena.

Finally, the guy who was better than the rest of the cast and already beat all the best guys on the show gets the sub win. Yee, Holdsworth.

Kim Winslow is a great referee and anyone who says otherwise is sexist or has eyeballs

Roxanne has not been this excited since the 8th Grade Science Fair. #TUFFinale

i can't prove that Jay Glazer is a human-sized sausage that the UFC has taught to speak, but you can't prove he's not

@benfowlkesMMA @JoshGrossESPN it's how she likes all her men to start.

When Niinimaki told his friends he planned to beat Rani Yahya with takedowns & top control, you know some were like, Should I say something?

When they call security to escort you from the office where your ex-girlfriend works the dude who shows up probably looks like Jared Rosholt

— Ben Fowlkes (@benfowlkesMMA) December 1, 2013

Walt Harris might have the longest legs in the UFC. His hips are even with Jared Rosholt's nipples.
