Benson Henderson (@SMOOTHone155)
UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva (@SpiderAnderson)
UFC 148 headliner Chael Sonnen (@SonnenCh)
TUF 8's Joe Duarte (@JoeDuarteMMA)

$5,000 winners in the "biggest percentage growth in followers" category:

Surprised to see Joe Duarte on that list. Ben Henderson, Chael Sonnen, Mayhem Miller, and Kenny Florian are consistently entertaining on Twitter though no doubt.

Dougie -  The UFC understands the internet and works it.


They are LIGHTYEARS ahead of most global brands (even outside of sports) in their understanding of the value in social media.

I swear kflo must suck Dana off. Dude catches more title shots and tv paychecks than his talent or personality warrant.

" it's ok Kenny drop another weight class, 4th times a charm... Damn that didnt work.. Shit. Ok how about u bore the hell out of the fans with Anik... Fuck that was a disaster too. Ok fuck.. Tweet something, I'll kick u another 10k... Just keep suckin... Ohh yeah... Ohh fuck yeah... Work that shit Kenny.. Fuck. "
