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 162 via social networking.

I’m a Silva fan, and after that disgraceful, disrespectful performance he deserved to get knocked out .

Anderson Silva's reign lasted 2,458 days. In that time, 26 other men & women in other divisions wore UFC gold. #UFC

Doesn't matter who you are. Flat footed, square, hands down. Gonna pay a price at some point. Chris Weidman: New UFC middleweight champion.

— Josh Gross (@JoshGrossESPN) July 7, 2013

Never seen so many Brazilian reports so pissed. Press row is like a morgue in my section.

— Greg Savage (@TheSavageTruth) July 7, 2013

Ray Longo has done it again. Had a local kid knock off one of the P4P best.

— Chuck Mindenhall (@ChuckMindenhall) July 7, 2013

That...was...stupid. Working your opponent is one thing but remember, you're still in a fight dude. Damn. #AndersonSilva #ufc162 #MMA

The real difference between Frankie and Do Bronx is that Frankie has grown-man strength and can push Charles around like he wants to #UFC162

20 years and Gracies still haven't learned how to strike.

— Matthew Polly (@MatthewEPolly) July 7, 2013

Roger Gracie only landed 16 strikes? Really? You could land more in a jiu-jitsu match on accident.

Just can't vibe with the late stoppage talk. This is borderline eliminator type stuff, not patty cake. Herb waited for clean face punches.

— Jordan Breen (@jordanbreen) July 7, 2013

Well that was MY main event. All the rest is snuggling and snoring after the orgasm.

Judge Mark Smith is UFC 162's turd in the punch bowl with his 29-28 Leben scorecard, giving him the first and second. FANS, GET THE PYRE.

— Jordan Breen (@jordanbreen) July 7, 2013

Leben isn't 32 in fighter years. He's 32 in running back years. Or dog years. Or something.

I've got high hopes for Dave Herman's Bellator career.

Shout out to Keith Kizer for making Kim Winslow the ref where the fighters are a combined 500 pounds.

Edson Barboza needs to walk to the cage in a flannel shirt and an ax, and really embrace this thing.

— Dann Stupp (@MMAjunkieDann) July 7, 2013

Melancon didn't have to look at a ton of tape to discover Baczynski's weakness to left hook-type pokemons http://t.co/c9yHog744H

— smoogy (@smoogymma) July 6, 2013

There you go, Mike Pierce. That left might have just got you off the Facebook prelims. Brutal finish.

— Ben Fowlkes (@benfowlkesMMA) July 6, 2013

Mike pierce with the KO..... being as this was on the undercard...he has better odds of winning Powerball than getting KOTN bonus
