Following Fighters on Twitter

Many fighters have joined Twitter and are posting updates. Fighters are using Twitter not only to share information on training and their random thoughts, but also to talk trash and announce fights. WEC rivals Donald Cerrone and Jamie Varner have used it to throw barbs at each other, and Rich Franklin used it to announce that he will be fighting Dan Henderson at UFC 103.

Rich Franklin – “Ace” is new to Twitter, but he’s already fun to follow.

Tom Lawlor – Not shockingly from the guy who entered UFC 100 to “Who Let the Dogs Out,” with his cornerman Seth Petruzelli on a leash, Lawlor’s Tweets are hilarious. His last Tweet indicated that he’s getting fat and loving it.

Joe Stevenson – Joe “Daddy” shares not only updates on training, but random notes about his family and friends.  

Donald Cerrone – “Cowboy” doesn’t Twitter often, but when he does, it’s good stuff, calling out his opponents, making fun of his Greg Jackson teammates, etc.

Jamie Varner – Who has Cowboy been calling out? Jamie Varner of course. Varner is not afraid to respond via Twitter. 

Josh Barnett – He is getting ready for an August 1 fight with Fedor Emelianenko, and his Twitter is full of updates on training as well as quotes and songs that would motivate anyone for a bout. 

Nate Quarry – In his last update, he challenged a toddler to a strongman competition. Why wouldn’t you want to follow him?  

Quinton “Rampage” Jackson – Sample Tweet: “I just got cussed out by Super Dave Osbourne!” The picture at right is from his Twitter, as well.  

Reed Harris – The general manager of WEC is known to give away free stuff via Twitter.

Spike TV Will Air UFC 100 Saturday, August 15

OK fellas here is your second chance, Spike TV announced today that it will air fights from the historic UFC 100 pay-per-view event. 

On Saturday, August 15 at 10pm, Spike will offer fights from the seminal event for the first time on free TV. Who knows, maybe this time around Frank Mir will catch Lesnar in a gogoplata and Michael Bisping will learn the difference between left and right. And even if not, I will never get tired of watching Dan Henderson’s jaw-dropping knockout over the UK Golden Boy.

Lesnar’s win over Frank Mir finally unified a champion in a heavyweight division that had spent years in limbo. It was a grudge match for redemption, pride, and championship gold, and Lesnar proved once and for all that he is the real deal. Love him or hate him, he is here to stay.

Dan Henderson and Michael Bisping spent a long season getting on each other’s nerves on The Ultimate Fighter: US vs. UK, and it all came pouring out in the cage on July 11th. Henderson’s already impressive highlight reel barely warrants mention in comparison to his picture perfect KO. And Mark Coleman took on MMA savior Stephan Bonnar in a truly symbolic matchup between the man who started it and the man who saved it. Nearing a half century old, Coleman’s not ready for rocking chairs and whittle sticks just yet. He ground out one of the gutsiest wins in his career as he spat in the face of time.

Visit Spike TV for the latest.

I smell a bit of UFC VS STRIKEFORCE animosity, don’t you? Carano Vs. Cyborg will air that very same evening, coincidence? I think NOT!
