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 on Fox 8 via social networking.

People forget Johnson is only 26 too. He could be atop the Flyweight division for a long time. #UFConFOX8

That's a champion, pitching a shutout and still getting cutthroat for the finish. Hurrah for Demetrious Johnson.

Early this week Mighty Mouse's wife gave birth to a baby boy who is now taller than him.

Only 2 fights in history have ended by sub at 4:59 in the 2nd; Masvidal's victory tonight & the twister by UFC 163 challenger Korean Zombie

Prior to tonight, there had been only 15 UFC fights in which the loser received a 30-27 scorecard. Here they are: http://t.co/ECAuRxCLoH

That's what happens when Melvin Guillard explodes before he implodes.

Had it 29-28 Edwards. Two 30-27 Cruickshank scorecards seems pretty on par for Washington's rogue judges gallery, though. Consistent idiocy.

Hillbilly bar fight / Short Fuse trades some of his soul / but, we're all winners. #UFConFOX8 #haikurecaps

Have no clue how a judge could call that a split dec!!! MMA judges scare me. Randamie won easily 2-1 in a not very exciting fight.

Watching Aaron Riley fight is like watching a creature further down on the evolutionary scale struggle to survive in the modern world.

Pretty sure Aaron Riley bare-knuckle fought my great-grandpa at a fairground during the Depression.

Well, at least only people with a Facebook account saw John Albert blatantly quit after seven minutes of fighting.

— RJ Clifford (@RJcliffordMMA) July 27, 2013


Oh, that triangle. Albert was never good in geometry.
