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 9 via social networking.

With GSP out now, Demetrious Johnson is now MMA's most professional man, just punching the time card, improving, booking men hospital trips.

WOW!!! What a finish!!! @mightymouseUFC retains his title!! https://t.co/JZuMco6vBh

Immediate cynical take: great KO could help Johnson's star power, but short fight hurts FOX ratings.

— Luke Thomas (@SBNLukeThomas) December 15, 2013

Remember when Demetrius Johnson said Benavidez throws hard with his eyes closed?

What's the over-under on the number of hammer fists that DJ landed before it was stopped? 6? That's speed.

Faber is one of the best finishers in MMA history. When he is facing non-champs, he doesn't usually just win big, he blows doors off homies.

— Jordan Breen (@jordanbreen) December 15, 2013

Faber channeled his Thailand street fight there. So vicious a finisher is Faber Joe.

Danzig's ass is not for sale. So he's either against slavery or homophobic.

Danzig's shorts say "Not For Sale"...Askren's say "Please Buy Me" #UFConFOX9

On a separate note, I was told McKenzie showed up sans mouthpiece or shorts. Someone got those for him at a store nearby.

Coincidentally, I helped the CSAC with some data analysis this week. The conclusion was that 10-8 rounds are not used adequately in MMA.

Edson Barbasol, He'll Shave Your Face.

Judging incompetence! Refereeing incompetence! Castillo vs Barboza had it all!

— Jon (@jonJpatrick) December 15, 2013

Rogan called Bobby Green "Bobby Brown"...it's his prerogative. #UFConFOX9

— MMA Roasted (@MMARoasted) December 15, 2013

"This is big! THIS IS BIG!" The professional announcer says of an inconsequential late flurry in a lopsided fight.

— Tomas Rios (@TheTomasRios) December 15, 2013

RT @BjornRebney: :) ... wait.... :( ?... ;

Despite not having any warmup fights in the WSOF, ex-Bellator champ Zack Makovsky looks sharp in his UFC debut. Imagine that.

STILL HAS THE TAG ON! RT @BrandonfrmNJ: Cody shorts @jordanbreen pic.twitter.com/7LrzIDoUB9

— FrontRowBrian (@FrontRowBrian) December 14, 2013

Oh my. The legend of Cody McKenzie grows. Fighting in MMA shorts with the tags still on.

— Jon (@jonJpatrick) December 14, 2013

McKenzie can't return his shorts now that Big John ripped off the tag. There goes three bucks down the drain.

— Dann Stupp (@MMAjunkieDann) December 14, 2013

I just realized that if GSP drank more NOS Active, maybe he wouldn't have to step away for a while. He should buy some. With his money.

— Matt Erickson (@MMAjunkieMatt)

Cody McKenzie seriously looks like a dude that would've gotten beat into a coma on a Monte Cox show in a Quad Cities titty bar in 1998.

The beating was so thorough, Trujillo is now going to go to Bowling's locker room and take his wallet, and Bowling will say nothing.

We're just two fights in on tonights #UFCFightNight card and we just spotted this guy. #JustBleed pic.twitter.com/D90kWdolrM

Abel Trujillo was so impressive in dispatching Roger Bowling that Joe Rogan finally started pronouncing his last name correctly.
