There is always somebody cracking jokes about MMA, whether it’s fighters, writers or fans. Some of them are even pretty funny, and we’re going to share with you the three best tweets of the day from fighters, fans, and the media. Today we’ve got an expanded Mega-Edition, with a whole lotta UFC 162 goodness from the likes of Mauro Ranallo, cancer fighter Bill Hoyler, Front Row Brian, Vinc Pichel, Lauren Taylor, Josh Barnett, Ryan Couture and more! Plus, a bonus non-PPV related bit from Dr. Ann Maria De Mars!
If they kiss again during the touch of gloves, it's really going to ruin the mood.

#1) The last funny tweet of the Anderson Silva era.
Who knew showboating was a low-percentage technique?
— Ryan Couture (@RyanDCouture) July 7, 2013
#2) Fight wisdom runs deep in the Couture bloodline…
Steven Seagal just said he did not take credit for that fight. #UFC162

#3) Admit it, you were all thinking it. Adam “MMA Roasted” Hunter just beat you to it.
Sundry Twitiots who've polluted my timeline, Silva didn't throw fight! Those who think so, your IQ is tantamount to your shoe size.
— Mauro Ranallo (@mauroranallo) July 7, 2013
#4) The inimitable Mauro Ranallo sums up his thoughts on the conspiracy-theorists.
— Bill Hoyler (@Pancancerfightr) July 7, 2013
#5) Bill Hoyler, a huge MMA fan and battler of pancreatic cancer, takes a jab at Anderson for going back to Portuguese at the post-fight presser. As an aside, if you can, do Bill a solid and not only give him a follow, but donate to help him with his medical costs. He’s a good dude and, as I said before, a huge MMA fan.
I'm the first to call a work but why would AS take a dive when an 8 figure pay day was on the horizon vs Jones or GSP.

#6) Front Row Brian also deflates the dreams of the conspiracy theorists.
I saw so many Brazilians crying after the spider got squashed. It brings a smile to my face #merica
— Vinc Pichel (@FromHellPichel) July 7, 2013
#7) If I didn’t know better, I’d think that Vinc was a Chaelian.
Silva: "Heet me, Chris Weiner! Heet me in my chin!" *pats chin mockingly* Chris Weidman: "Don't mind if I do!" BAM!
— Lauren Taylor (@LaurenTaylorMMA) July 7, 2013
#8) Lauren Taylor, who will be competing against Sarah D’alelio at Invicta FC 6 next weekend, sums up the finishing sequence of Silva vs. Weidman quite nicely.
— Josh Barnett (@JoshLBarnett) July 7, 2013
#9) Josh Barnett: Warmaster, grappling ace, speaker of truth.
Two 30-27 cards for Kennedy. Reasonably certain that intelligent total novices to the sport could do a better job.

#10) The ever-entertaining Tomas Rios on the night’s judging.
Boetsch doesn't need ice. He needs Percocet…and lots of them!
— Dr. Johnny Benjamin (@DrJCBenjamin) July 7, 2013
#11) Listen to this man, he’s a doctor.
In Leben's mind he's still fighting a firing breathing dragon atop a mountain of Dwarven gold. #UFC162
— Tommy Toe Hold (@TommyToeHold) July 7, 2013
#12) Tommy Toehold, with a peak inside Chris Leven’s mind after his loss to Andrew Craig.
WOW. someone tell me who had that Leben scorecard and let an albatross take a massive shit on them when they walk outside. #ufc162

#13) MMA fan Earl Montclair also has thoughts on the judging at UFC 162.

#14) Spilled Bag of Ice, forecasting the expected Dave Herman cut.
