Twitter is fast becoming a top source of news on the planet, and if you are one of the millions of people who are both an MMA fan and have a twitter account, you probably follow at least one or two fighters. While you probably can’t and shouldn’t follow everyone, here are a few people that are absolutely worthy of following.
Whether you like it or not, Dana White is pretty much the big guy in MMA. You don’t have to like him, but his tweeter feed is definitely worth following. He is often the first to break news about all sorts of MMA-related events and fighters. In addition, he will say just about anything and has no problem expressing himself, albeit the tweets are often heavily laced with profanity. Check out the results of a recent feud between Ken Shamrock and Dana White, which is nothing but fun.
There are many reasons to follow Joe Rogan on twitter. He likes to tweet about conspiracy theories, such as UFOs and phony moon landings. He likes to tweet about marijuana and LSD. Oh, and he’s also an MMA expert and one of the sports best commentators and knows everything about MMA. He’s also earned a black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, both gi and no-gi.
Chael Sonnen is a dude without a verbal filter, and this is what makes following him on twitter such fun. He hates Anderson Silva and Wanderlei Silva, and he tweets about it a lot, including posting some pretty bad poetry about how much he hates them. At any rate, he and Wanderlei Silva were just chosen has the coaches for The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil, so that ought to be interesting.
There are plenty of other great fighters to think about following. MMA greats such as BJ Penn offer tons of great information and commentary, and Penn has a great website, as well. His social media team is highly knowledgeable and he’s always posting something interesting. Tito Ortiz is another guy who posts all sorts of interesting tweets about his daily life, including training and family stuff.
There are some great MMA sports reporters worth following. Loretta Hunt has been writing about MMA for more than 10 years, and her twitter feed is filled with great updates. You can count on her for great insights as well. Ariel Helwani is another sports journalist definitely worth following. He also offers links to his highly entertaining interviews with MMA fighters.
