On the same weekend that Danica Patrick will be the first woman to start on the pole at the Daytona 500, two females in the UFC made some history of their own.

Here's how the MMA community reacted to UFC 157 on the medium of Twitter.

Seriously, though, who is going to be the first jackass to suggest that wasn't an incontestably thrilling round?

If you were hating / I hope you choke on your words / the ladies BROUGHT IT. #ufc157

All things considered, that couldn't have gone better for WMMA, the UFC and Ronda. Heck, considering the odds, Liz's stock rises.

Judo Gene LeBell wears pink Gi's and beat up all your grandfathers... Sorry just Facts.

TUF winner Court McGee keeps his job. The UFC has a posterboy in case they ever try to break into the Amish market.

If Neer went to prison, his tattoo should read HERE

Sad fact: Urijah Faber is one of two fighters on this card who wrestled collegiately for wrestling programs that no longer exist.

Unless you really, really wanted to see Koscheck's head dribbled a bit more, I don't think that was an early stoppage.

— Dann Stupp (@MMAjunkieDann) February 24, 2013

Rogan and Koscheck agree that stop was premature. Herb Dean and Koscheck's brain cells disagree. #UFC157

Lavar Johnson's submission defense is the same as his standing offense: Punch Head.

If he already wasn't atop the leaderboard, I now nominate Grice for "most depressing UFC career a fairly skilled fighter has ever had."

— Jordan Breen (@jordanbreen) February 24, 2013

Sam Stout just tied Jon Fitch with 13 career UFC decisions.

The name "Brock Jardine" sounds like one composed from an MMA Create-A-Fighter feature from a UFC video game a few years back #mma #ufc

do you think Johnny Cash ever looks down from heaven and wonders why so many guys listen to his music in their underwear

UFC are serious about these cutbacks....saving on wate rbill by not having Liz and Ronda shadowbox in mist...

— Robert Joyner (@robnashville) February 24, 2013

In other news, UFC is going to cut 100 fighters before every event.

Let's all drink a toast to the savior of Women's MMA... Gary Shaw
