A few updates on what’s been going on in the MMA Twittersphere.


I expect to be on the January 1st card. I do not have an opponent yet. Any takers?” Shane Carwin

I always wonder way you guys get this information. I’m still in rehab next to Lindsey trying to get the knee better.”  –Roy Nelson, commenting on reports that he could face Shane Carwin at New Years.

Question to all? When the knee gets better who would you pay to see me fight?”  –Roy Nelson, I say Frank Mir.

@KingMO_GDP knee is getting better practiced yesterday, how is yours knee doing, we could do rehab together”  –Roy Nelson

@roynelsonmma and @KingMO_GDP are getting old I’m the only young boy here And why are you boys not sleeping? Roy I will call your wife ;-/”  –Renzo Gracie

I do not care who the opponent is. I have been in the gym working hard. It is time to see where I belong in the mix.”  –Shane Carwin


@FilthyTomLawlor definitely put his thumb up my ass defending a sweep at training today. I feel so violated.” Joe Lauzon

There’s no truth to the rumor that I INTENTIONALLY violated @JoeLauzon today.I contend there is a thumb attracting magnet in his anus though” Tom Lawlor

“lies!”  Joe Lauzon

I just stole @JoeLauzon‘s suv! And I’m driving in Massachusetts while illegally texting! Bring it state of Mass!” Tom Lawlor


#TweetIwanted2send : During the prelims of the WEC “I am gassing out just watching these guys”. Since it wasnt on tv it was not as funny”  Shane Carwin, I wouldn’t be surprised.

Just say “No” to Brocktober.”  Shane Carwin, I’m so glad he has the same stance on banned substances… oh wait.

no I am a lot bitter.”  –Shane Carwin, replying to a fan who asked if he was a tad bitter.

come on he actually got his ass beat and then won with a choke. He did not risk beating my ass…. He is a tough dude but he did not hand out any ass whoppins in our fight. You know you were scared for him.”  –Shane Carwin

Easy, he does not have the hips I had expected. If I can keep from gassing I can SMASH him on the ground or feet.” Shane Carwin

You can’t disparage Octoberfest for a guy who would drink Coors Light. I live in Coors country and trust me it is the fruit cake of beers.”  –Shane Carwin


Just finished the K-1 drawing, I will fight Tyrone Spong in the first round. Looking forward for this fight! …After a long trip finally home, glad to be back after 3 weeks in Thailand and Korea!!”  Alistair Overeem

Ima say this….K1 is more exciting than MMA. Yall cant complain about people not tryna go for the finish. K1 got a high KO ratio mayne” King Mo, I hear ADCC got a high sub ratio too.

Tyrone Spong is my boy but he is fight the super ni**a alistair overeem… Yall call him Reem…me and my people call him super ni**a overeem”  –King Mo

There is truth to the rumor that I use UberTwitter as my client simply due to being an UbeREEM fan”  –Tom Lawlor
