UFC Fight Night: Tale of the tweet
One more for the bad guy: Chael Sonnen bounces back after two consecutive title-shot losses and submits Shogun with a flying guillotine choke.

The California Kid gets the UD over Iuri Alcantara, after a rough Round 1.

Good job @UrijahFaber hell of a fight!— Erik Jon Koch (@NEWBREED04) August 18, 2013
Faber ... Too well rounded ! #UFCFightNight— Derek Brunson (@DerekBrunsonMMA) August 18, 2013
Looked very vicious and aggressive tonight bro! Congrats! @UrijahFaber— Brad Tavares (@BradTavares) August 18, 2013
Rd 2 was complete top domination from faber. I'd probably go 10-8 and then rd 3 10-9. Overall 30-26 for faber #ufcfightnight— Sarah Kaufman (@mmasarah) August 18, 2013
Great job @UrijahFaber "The Comeback kid! "— Cung Le (@CungLe185) August 18, 2013
Congrats @UrijahFaber, you looked great tonight!!!!— Ishe Smith (@IsheSugarShay) August 18, 2013
One of the greatest (and most polite) skateboarders ever, Ryan Sheckler, is at TD Garden.
The 916 is ready for Faber.
The pros react to Matt Brown's bomb:
I'm surprised brown finished Pyle so fast. I know he's somehow underrated even though he performs well, but still... #ufcfightnight— Sarah Kaufman (@mmasarah) August 18, 2013
Holy hell @IamTheImmortal Great win!— Eddie Wineland (@EddieWineland) August 18, 2013
Matt brown deserves a title shot for sure... But him vs Carlos confit would be an amazing fight.— michael (@bisping) August 18, 2013
6 in a row for brown id like to see him take on Rory MacDonald anyone else think that would be a good fight for Brown!? #UFCFightNight— John Maguire (@MaguireTheOne) August 18, 2013
And this is why Conor McGregor is awesome.
I came for the finish. Anything else is a loss to me.— Conor McGregor (@TheNotoriousMMA) August 18, 2013
The main card kicked off with hometown hero and fight bonus machine, Joe Lauzon vs. a very ready and able Michael Johnson. Lauzon was outclassed in Boston and then there were crickets.
Wow that didn't look like the guy I fought last year. I wonder if he was injured or just over trained? Either way Johnson looked great!— Jamie Varner (@jamievarner) August 18, 2013
What a night of fights so far. FOX Sports 1 has officially launched and electricity is in the air. UFC Fight Night is finally here and all the fighters on the card are putting on a show. Prelims are in full swing, let's see what the fighters are saying:
The head of @One_Punch is like punching a coconut! Great recovery!!— Eddie Wineland (@EddieWineland) August 17, 2013
McDonald is such an impressive fighter!— Brad Tavares (@BradTavares) August 17, 2013
Extremely impressed by @MaydayMcDonald showed great striking and that was one the fastest triangles I have ever seen!— Chris Clements (@menaceclements) August 17, 2013
McGregor is tough. He uses all of his tools well. Max is very tough too. That wasn't an easy fight— Daniel Cormier (@dc_mma) August 17, 2013
Several different takedowns hit by McGregor to compliment his gr8 striking, impressive, Holloway is a tough guy too— Brian Stann (@BrianStann) August 17, 2013
