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 166 via social networking.

I wonder if every time Mike Goldberg has sex it's the greatest ever?

That's the latest knockout in UFC history. Previous latest was BJ Penn over Diego Sanchez at 2:37 R5. #UFC166

With all due respect to Jones, St. Pierre and Aldo, for my money, Cain Velasquez is the best MMA fighter in the world at any weight.

Texas' docs either best ever or worst ever. Haven't decided yet. "I can see your brain, Diego, but can you see this light? Yeah? OK. Good."

Texas doctor: "Still breathing? He's good to go!" #UFC166

I'm no doctor but I have see a lot of men who are too tough for their own good and JDS is one of them. He was out and this should stopped.

— Dana White (@danawhite) October 20, 2013

Good thing Michael Jackson died or he might try to buy JDS skeleton after this fight.

The scientists in Junior's corner are actually linguists. Their job is to come up with a viable excuse for his loss. Brazilians are masters

— Jonathan Snowden (@mmaencyclopedia) October 20, 2013

10-8 round three. I swear Herb stopped the fight and Cain said, "Nah bro, I ain't done."

— RJ Clifford (@RJcliffordMMA) October 20, 2013

30-27 Cormier. That was, how to put this, UFC 166's refractory period.

— Josh Gross (@JoshGrossESPN) October 20, 2013

Looking at Diego's cut, I feel like you could give one good tug and open up his entire forehead like a bag of chips.

@TheSavageTruth it's driving me fucking crazy!!!!!! He is HORRIBLE

— Dana White (@danawhite) October 20, 2013

that win bonus means Gabriel Gonzaga can finally afford a windowless white van to go with that moustache

— Chris Nelson (@3amMMA) October 20, 2013

Also, Gonzaga's mustache? No way he can buy weed with that thing without being called a NARC.

backstage in Houston, an irate C.B. Dollaway passes by a dressing room marked "EYE" and begins jabbing it with his finger

— Chris Nelson (@3amMMA) October 20, 2013

Dollaway almost got a finish by the brain tickler submission. I wonder if Chuck or Kos taught him that.

— Greg Savage (@TheSavageTruth) October 20, 2013

Nice to know that it isn't any easier for @joerogan to interview Hector than it was for me

— Jimmy Smith (@jimmysmithmma) October 20, 2013

@jordanbreen Marquardt is arguing that this KO was a false positive.

— Michel Vanderby (@MVanderby) October 20, 2013

Goldberg just called Kaufman the best striker in female MMA. With Holly Holm in the building, he said those words.

— Jeremy Botter (@jeremybotter) October 20, 2013

Jessica Eye has those Dateline eyes, finna shoot someone, burn the house down and make some outlandish and incriminating Google searches.

— Jordan Breen (@jordanbreen) October 20, 2013

Palhares just requested that the ref for Amagov/Waldburger ref all of his fights. #UFC166

— MMA Roasted (@MMARoasted) October 19, 2013

"Amagov" gets spell checked into "a magic." Sounds about right. Give me Amagov versus a legit top 15 dude on a good card next.

— RJ Clifford (@RJcliffordMMA) October 19, 2013

Ferguson's sub of Rio at 1:52 of R1 was the quickest D'Arce/Brabo choke in UFC history. Previous quickest: Weidman over Lawlor, 2:07 R1,

Horiguchi performing like that middle school kid who gets to play high school ball because he's a stud.
