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.
