Twitter is usually that place where you can crack a lame joke without having to go through that awkward moment of silence when it’s not funny to anyone but yourself. But on fight night, we MMA fans and fighters gather to talk about the fights, share our predictions, congratulate the athletes on their good performances, wish the losers well in the future, etc. Check out the play by play right here, weigh in video and results here, and full fight predictions here.
In the body of this post will be a load of some of the best tweets from fight night, even ones without the hashtag #UFC178. I vow to bring you guys some of the greatest commentary from the world of social media, all in one spot! So stick around and enjoy the show.
