I bet about 95% of the fighters are just going to have someone they know now talk on there twitter to get some extra cash flow...

The odds your going to be talking to the actual fighter himself is going to be slim to none....

I wouldn't be surprised if UFC has assigned people to use there twitter to get more fans involved and is using this to make people believe there actually talking to the fighter

I don't really use twitter much, but I am a "fan" of GSP on twitter and I'm 100% sure none of the updates are coming from anyone but a paid publicist. At least he's not Kevin Randleman though, most of that guy's updates are spam/phishing.

But if you get creative with your tweets like, say Mayhem, then you'll still be up for a win... And a publicist will never be as interesting as the man himself :P
