UFC 163: tale of the tweet
It was a crazy night in Rio de Janeiro and UFC fighters were firing off tweets with reckless abandon. Relive your Twitter scroll here.
The social media world exploded in the climax of UFC 163. A fluke injury ended the night for the Korean Zombie. After the fight, Aldo attempted to stage dive from the Octagon and got stopped by security. Lots to talk about.

Phil Davis pulls out a very controversial decision over Lyoto Machida and controversy ensues.
Guys was a close fight. No one landed many strikes. Turn the volume down and watch the fight and it won't be as obvious.— Daniel Cormier (@dc_mma) August 4, 2013
Shocked but I give it to @PhilMrWonderful he did push the fight and go after it and try to make something happen.— Demetrious Johnson (@MightyMouseUFC) August 4, 2013
Not for nothing Phil Davis is awesome but that's some BS!!! They award to much for TD's even though no damage is done on the floor! Booooo— Matt Serra (@MattSerraUFC) August 4, 2013
Wow!!! I had Machida winning all 3 rds but that's what happens when u leave it up to the judges!— Dana White (@danawhite) August 4, 2013
