Bigfoot calls dibs on Easter. RT @danawhite: Both Hunt and Silva get their win bonus and I might buy them both their own private ISLANDS!!!!— Eric Jackman (@NewYorkRic) December 7, 2013
Stop worrying if this is better than that fight or this fight. Enjoy it. It was incredible, unexpected, fun, awesome, amazing, tremendous...— Ariel Helwani (@arielhelwani) December 7, 2013
Didn't Hunt's knee explode like ten minutes ago? The fight gods magically healed it to satiate the bloodlust of everyone watching?— RJ Clifford (@RJcliffordMMA) December 7, 2013
Mark Hunt's son is hardcore. He was unfazed by witnessing *that* in person. Coleman's daughters' heads would have exploded.— Todd Martin (@ToddMartinMMA) December 7, 2013
Legit one of the best KO's this year. Pure on-point brutality, Te Huna's collapsing actions were gruesome. Absolute .gif fodder. Cold shower— Jordan Breen (@jordanbreen) December 7, 2013
Shogun pulled the plug out the back of James Te Huna's head when he was still in the Matrix. #UFC— MiddleEasy (@MiddleEasy) December 7, 2013
never seen a guy win so decisively, yet be so totally unimpressed by that same dominant performance.... congrats, ryan bader....— Robert Joyner (@robnashville) December 7, 2013
The last tine I saw a Hippo take this much punishment was when Matt Hughes posted his hunting pics. #UFCFightNight— MMA Roasted (@MMARoasted) December 7, 2013
Perosh's corner needs to throw the towel. If you can't find the towel, use your shirt.— Brett Okamoto (@bokamotoESPN) December 7, 2013

GUARANTEED KNOCKOUT. GUARANTEED UGLY. GUARANTEED PAT BARRY TEARS.— GFKonMMA (@GFKonMMA) December 7, 2013
if that type of strike makes you go limp, get out of the sport..... for your own good.— FrontRowBrian (@FrontRowBrian) December 7, 2013
@benfowlkesMMA Greg Jackson should make an app of him just shouting positive things so we can all feel as good as his fighters— Tom Johnson (@tjohn224) December 7, 2013
UFC FIGHT NIGHT 33 PLAY-BY-PLAY Nick Ring vs Caio Magalhaes Round 3: I'm cutting myself just to feel something, anything. To feel alive.— Chris Nelson (@3amMMA) December 7, 2013
OK, seriously, I would cut Magalhaes' hand off for that fence-grab. As a referee, I would just keep a little baby machete on me at all times— Mike Whitman (@mikewhitmanmma) December 7, 2013
Doc looks at Magalhaes's eye and OKs it. Thinks, 'Man, I should really do something about these ears while I'm here.'— Dann Stupp (@MMAjunkieDann) December 7, 2013
This is a humble interview and all, but Scoggins would make an excellent heel turn by making a Steve Irwin/Stingray reference.— Mookie Alexander (@mookiealexander) December 7, 2013
This fight is making me want to do something else. Both tonight and with my life. That's some powerful next-level suck.— Jonathan Snowden (@mmaencyclopedia) December 7, 2013
Bruno Santos, the kind of guy that plays pure defense while he has double underhooks. His fights need to come with an open bar or something.— Jordan Breen (@jordanbreen) December 7, 2013
