Twitter Bonus 5000

The UFC’s second batch of twitter bonuses have just been paid out: 5 grand per 4 winners per 3 categories every 3 months. Check out this quarter’s list of winners:

Most followers:
Anderson Silva (@SpiderAnderson)
Junior dos Santos (@Junior_Cigano)
Brendan Schaub (@BrendanSchaub)
Cung Le (@CungLe185)

Highest percentage of growth in followers:
Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira (@MinotauroMMA)
Roy Nelson (@RoyNelsonMMA)
Jake Ellenberger (@EllenbergerMMA)
Cung Le (@CungLe185)

Most creative:
Tim Kennedy (@TimKennedyMMA)
Joseph Benavidez (@JoeB135)
Duane Ludwig (@DuaneBangCom)
Pat Barry (@HypeOrDie)

A little clarification on the ‘most followers’ award, it isn’t for who has the most overall but who gained the most followers in the last few months. The percentage of growth award is kinda like ‘Most Followers Lite’ in that it lets the little guys in the league compete.

As for the ‘most creative’ category, I’d say the UFC once again picked the wrong dudes but what do I know? I thought Miguel Torres deserved a twitter award too, but instead they gave him a twitter firing. Pat Barry certainly deserves his five grand, which I hope will go towards more tighty whities and duets with Mirko Crocop. I dunno what Duane Ludwig did to deserve a win but I guess being a generally nice guy on twitter is pretty creative so there we go.

  • iamphoenix says:

  • Letibleu says:

    I made a sad video of pat when he lost to kongo. one of the only non funny vids I made. He got wind of it and he tweeted me saying he even showed it to his mom. He was supposed to send a pair of tighty whities autographed by him and his mom but it never happened.

    Still a fan though!

    For anyone bitching about fighter pay, I’d say this is a pretty good counter-argument to demonstrate Dana Longshanks generosity.

  • Giallo says:

    WTF is the point of twitter? I can understand following Dana cause of the free tickets, I live in halifax so that shit don’t matter to me anyway. It’s just fagget groupie bullshit, I could give a fuck what celebs or fighters are eating for lunch or whatever mundane crap they’re doing
