As mixed martial arts has evolved in front of our eyes throughout the years, so have the methods in which its rabid fans glean their information.
From unprecedented levels of insight to knee-slapping one-liners, the impact Twitter has had on the sport could arguably be stated as unmatched. In a new feature debuting at the conclusion of UFC on Fox 5 “Henderson vs. Diaz,” Sherdog.com highlights some of the industry’s more memorable tweets on fight night.
Diaz always been a sixth round fighter. Hold tight.— Chuck Mindenhall (@ChuckMindenhall) December 9, 2012
Has there ever been a skinny dude who loved to flex as much as Nate Diaz? Non-ironically, I mean?— Ben Fowlkes (@benfowlkesMMA) December 9, 2012
Since they're muting curse words for tonight's Fox broadcast, I expect this fight to air in complete silence.— Dann Stupp (@MMAjunkieDann) December 9, 2012
Henderson's ground and pound is so much more controlled, articulated. He is aiming and blasting instead of spazzing. The results rock.— Jordan Breen (@jordanbreen) December 9, 2012
Ben Henderson's photo on his sponsor poster looks like it belongs on the cover of a romance novel. #UFConFOX5— Mike Chiappetta MMA (@MikeChiappetta) December 9, 2012

Every time Rua moves forward with a combo, Gusty drops back with his arms up like an old field goal post.— Chuck Mindenhall (@ChuckMindenhall) December 9, 2012
Creepiest call out ever by Rory MacDonald? I half expected him to say he wants locks of Condit's hair for his collection.— RJ Clifford (@RJcliffordMMA) December 9, 2012
On a night where they're avoiding post fight interviews, THANK GOD they gave the stick to Rory.— Todd Martin (@ToddMartinMMA) December 9, 2012
