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 165 via social networking.

For those that thought Gustafsson won, don't worry, they will fight again. Two true warriors. Jones may have won by AG didn't lose. #ufc165

I think people on twitter were more inclined to give rounds to Gustafsson because he surpassed their expectations.

48-47 Jones in quite possibly the Fight of the Year. Suddenly, the MMA world seems much more mysterious and thrilling. I love you, fighting.

I'm sorry but that's bullshit.

— michael (@bisping) September 22, 2013

3 rounds to 2. There's nothing worse than leaving it to the judges. F*ckn idiots

Greatest, flirt with Gustaffson. Gustaffson, flirt with greatness.

Deep inside you Alex runs a river of Viking warrior blood. Remember that.

That spinning back kick struck Wineland's molars and trachea. It's gonna take two dentists and three surgeons to fix that.

A guy that laid on top of Lavar Johnson for 15 minutes tapped out Matt Mitrione in under a round. M ... M ... A.

The reason for his poor performance is Costa is over rated.

— michael (@bisping) September 22, 2013

Sorry I just woke up! Thank god that's over. We decided a shot of @ChrisWeidmanUFC would be more exciting than the end of the fight.

— Dana White (@danawhite) September 22, 2013

Heard on press row: "This fight now sounds like women's tennis."

You know a fight is boring when you're trying to see how many of the journalists in the crowd you recognise.

— Seán Sheehan (@SeanSheehanBA) September 22, 2013

kudos to Wilson Reis for battling the tired old stereotype that bantamweights are always exciting

— Chris Nelson (@3amMMA) September 22, 2013

The Bud Light quinoa burger tailgating commercial might be my favorite of 2013. Buffer's head exploding is a close second. #IsThatALoofah

Apparently this is the toughest man in South Carolina. http://t.co/vYHCmGUtrf Just so you know.

A fight where both competitors try to crumple each other with bulldozing liver shots in the first round? Crom smiles upon us tonight.

Per capita, there are more Hawaiians fighting in the #UFC than any other state. Go figure. Kimura is one of them. #UFC165

UFC 165 just went from a Bellator heavyweight level fight to a WEC in its prime fight.

— RJ Clifford (@RJcliffordMMA) September 21, 2013

I think Rogan had a Grapplegasm

My favorite kind of MMA between Delorme and Caceres in Round 1. A lot of everything, especially scrambles.
