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 some of the best tweets of the day from fighters, fans, and the media. Today we’ve got another expanded edition in honor of UFC 164 with contributions from Mike Chiapetta, MMA fan/PED loather Phil Baldacci, Shayna Baszler, Dizz, Spilled Bag of Ice, Stephie Daniels, Sergio Pettis, Ben Fowlkes, Jesse Helton, and Ash C.
Homeless guy in park: "Hey, you at UFC?" Me: "Yeah." Him: Pettis win?" Me: "Yeah." Him: "Couple bucks so I can get a beer to celebrate?"

#1) You know Pettis has star power when even the homeless are asking about him.
@jeremybotter well, testosterone does grow best in late summer

#2) Mr. Baldacci does not approve of TRT usage.
Pettis wins in rd 1 via @RondaRousey

#3) Ronda Rousey has officially become synonymous with “armbar.”
No no!! It's NOT TRUE!! Vitor Belfort did not call out Anthony Pettis!! Although I wouldn't put it passed him…

#4) The sad thing is, Dizz is right. It wouldn’t be a shock to see Vitor Belfort call out Anthony Pettis.

#5) Spilled Bag of Ice with an accurate assessment of Mr. Barnett’s attitude at the post-fight presser.
Dustin, would you like a title shot? Naw man. I'm just fighting for no reason. #GoofyQuestionsDeserveGoofyAnswers

Low key when Anthony sleeps I'm wearing the belt . Both of them WEC and UFC ! And the RFA belt lmao

#7) Anthony Pettis’ little brother, Sergio, has big plans for his sibling’s belts.
Probably easier to just buy a new soul. I'll sell him mine, gently used. RT @NatFlyweight How does Bendo remove TWO stains?

#8) Ben Fowlkes appears to have never watched that one episode of the Simpsons where Bart sold his soul…
Barnett's walkout music mutilated and devoured Mir's walkout music. #UFC164

#9) When you’re unofficially sponsored by death metal legends Bolt Thrower, chances are your walkout music will “mutilate and devour” just about anybody else’s.
@ZProphet_MMA It's cool that they're using the phantom cam for this entire fight.

#10) Unfortunately, Soa Paleilei vs. Nikita Krylov was filmed without any cinematographic trickery. That was real time, frighteningly enough.
