Brian Stann @BrianStann
Thanks for the kind words everybody, I’m going to forget about MMA for a bit and make sense of everything later. Time to go home.

Jonathan Snowden @mmaencyclopedia
Brian Stann is fighting just like you’d imagine a Marine would. Needs to mix in a little Air Force.

Bjorn Rebney @BjornRebney
Wow, that was an insane, spectacular thing of beauty @wandfc. What a great, great fight by a great warrior.

Chris Clements @menaceclements
After the career Wand had in Japan the fight Gods owed him that.

Robert Joyner @robnashville
The Old bull just walked down that hill and f—ed ALL those cows

The jaw dropping, jaw breaking Hunt vs. Struve fight

mark richard hunt @markhunt1974
yea was getting tuned up for a bit bit its been a while,everything was out,struve is a tough kat,and very tall so hard to get timing right

Stefan Struve @StefanStruve
Thanks for the support everybody, I wanted Herb to take the tooth out of my cheek and continue but then it turned out my jaw was broken..

Vinny Magalhaes @VinnyMMA
@markhunt1974 is my IDOL!!! #PrideNeverDie

Ross Pearson @RossTheRealDeal
Mark hunt is the man!!!

michael @bisping
Mark hunt is the man!

***loop continuously, with differing numbers of exclamation points***

The Diego Sanchez beats Takanori Gomi, officially, fight

Diego Sanchez UFC ‏@DiegoSanchezUFC
Today is the day that the lord has made I will rejoice and be glad in it.

Dana White @danawhite
How the f— did Diego win that fight!? Crazy s—

Dana White @danawhite
Next to fights hopefully save the night. BRUTAL

Brian Rogers @BRogthePredator
GOMI get robbed..Japanese fighters can’t beat wrestlers even in Japan…amazing

Chris Leben @cripplerufc
@DiegoSanchezUFC what happened?! You used to move straight forward and crush guys. Too much Greg Jackson i think

The “I think that in very short order we will see Hector Lombard win the UFC title at 185 pounds” 1-2 Hector Lombard vs. Yushin Okami fight

Andy Ogle @thelittleaxe
the difference in lombard and okami’s bodies is insane. okami dwarfes lombard in height and reach but lombard is as wide as tall

Akira Corassani @AkiraCorassani
Those muscles need loads of Oxygen…

Derek Brunson @DerekBrunsonMMA
Okami out there pulling guard like there’s a pulling guard of the night bonus

Ben Askren @Benaskren
Wow I really thought Hector wrestling was better than this.

Sherdog @TheSherdoggy
Oops….Okami has the style to beat anyone on any given day. Maybe Bellator will get Hector back cheap.

The “you’re up two rounds you can coast this round” Brian Caraway vs. Takeya Mizugaki fight

Bloody Elbow @BloodyElbow
Miesha Tate: “You’re up two rounds. You can coast this round.” always the wrong corner advice. #UFCJapan

Conor Heun @ConorHeun
Anytime you try and coast to a win you deserve to lose.

Miesha Tate @MieshaTate
@danawhite I still think @Bryancaraway should get his win bonus what a BS decision did you see that garbage?

The Dong Hyun Kim vs. Siyar Bahadurzada heh you said Dong fight

Joseph Benavidez @JoeJitsu
DONG is really pounding away in there!

Joseph Benavidez @JoeJitsu
This is just too much Dong for Bahadurzada to handle.

Joseph Benavidez @JoeJitsu
Siyar needs to reverse this and mount the DONG

•••Girls too can make Dong jokes•••

Julie Kedzie @julesk_fighter
I say the more Dong the better. Like, BINDERS full of Dong

•••What is pioneering MMA fighter Dick Vrij doing these days, anyway?***

And what did you think of the fights? (Post here, not on the Twitter)
