UFC 149 in Tweets: Pros React to Urijah Faber vs. Renan Barao

Esther Lin, MMA Fighting

Rarely do you see displays of emotion as unbridled as Renan Barao's post-fight celebration at UFC 149. Following a five round dismantling of Urijah Faber, the young Brazilian joyously bounded across the ring, shedding his prospect label while cradling his new UFC interim bantamweight strap.

Yet Barao's dominant performance had the misfortune of capping one of the most lackluster UFC pay-per-views in recent memory. So while Barao's countrymen rushed to Twitter to congratulate their newest champion, the rest of the fight world was left grumbling about their wasted night.

Ultimately, perhaps Dan Henderson said it best.
