Ths is the first time Lyoto has moved to 185. He had to switch to Diet Urine. #UFCFightNight

Welcome to 185 @lyotomachidafw

Machida was facing me when he hit that KO and as soon as ref stepped in he ran over to downed Munoz and said "im sorry!".

@MMARoasted drank PEEdiaLITE (get it) lololololol

— Rachel (@mmahotstuff) October 26, 2013

KO happened with the body kick cuz Machida feinted w/kick prior & Mark's hands went low. Head kick came later because of it. Impressive!

The whole hand on the ground thing seems like more of a loophole than a necessary safety measure at this point.

That's such a great rule. Really makes sense and meaningfully enhances careers. Clearly awards fight to appropriate winner. Love it. #KillMe

Rosi Sexton's corner have volunteered her to finish up that third round for Jimmo.

You can tell the quality of a card by the placement of Ryan Jimmo on it.

Walk in the Parke. Jon Tuckered out. Don't want to see either as a headline, thanks. 30-27, Norman Parke. Quality effort right there.

Alessio Sakara anonymously stayed employed by UFC since 2005 but he's dropped 4 in a row. The UFC career cockroach may have died in England.

I wasn't paying atttention. Did Buffer say Lineker's weight in stone or boulder?

— jim genia (@jim_genia) October 26, 2013

Hallmann's cornerman is killing me right now. All I can think about is Red Track Suit Homie screaming at Ivan Drago.

— Mike Whitman (@mikewhitmanmma) October 26, 2013

@ekc Joachim Hansen-Masakazu Imanari still has to be the ultimate.

— Jordan Breen (@jordanbreen) October 26, 2013

Andrew Craig's public profile finna blow up when the MMA public uncovers that he's mentally ill and believes he is Jared Leto in Panic Room.

— Jordan Breen (@jordanbreen) October 26, 2013

30-25 Andrade, a total whooping. Y'all some paternalistic crybabies, souls moaning for Rosi. She's a tough pro. Where were tears for Diego?

— Jordan Breen (@jordanbreen) October 26, 2013

Brilliant point by @jordanbreen. If you really want woman's MMA to gain equality, treat them the same as the men. Asskickings included.

— RJ Clifford (@RJcliffordMMA) October 26, 2013

This is a violent sport. Suck it up folks. Normally you fuckers would be crying thats its FOTY stuff

— White Neon (@LongBeachOGKush) October 26, 2013

. @MarcRatnerUFC please never use this referee for any UFC event in the future. This is abusive and negligent on his part.

Money quote of night so far: "I want to fight McGregor, I know what a show pony is when I see one and that's all that guy is." - Cole Miller

Hettes sounds 16, not 26. #TRTSTAT

Whiteford didn't even try to posture up out of that triangle. All he had to do was posture up and out to his left. Is this even MMA?

— At-Risk Urban Latino (@TheTomasRios) October 26, 2013

I can't tell if Brad Scott has a beard or if his face is on fire.
