No, there are no “Brokeback Mountain” jokes in this fight card’s Twitter reactions. Those were pretty much used up during fight week to the point of our frustration.
But Donald Cerrone proved he’s the one true “Cowboy” in the Octagon with his submission finish of Alex “Cowboy” Oliveira and Twitter had its two cents. It’s Hot Tweets, y’all!

Cerrone looking at the ref like, “You doing your job tonight, or nah?” #UFCPittsburgh

Donald Cerrone needing to point out the tap to the ref is pretty much the most fitting end possible to this Pittsburgh adventure.

“If you wanna get hurt, I know a guy.” That’s a nice catchphrase, Cerrone. — Ariel Helwani (@arielhelwani) February 22, 2016

If Cerrone stays at 70, he could fight Stun Gun Kim, Tarec Saffiedine or maybe Woodley.. he’s not getting a title shot. — FrontRowBrian® (@FrontRowBrian) February 22, 2016
