UFC 148 in Tweets: Pros React to Anderson Silva vs. Chael Sonnen; Rashad Evans Calls Out Silva

Esther Lin, MMA Fighting

After two years, countless sound bytes and frosty staredowns, the Anderson Silva - Chael Sonnen rivalry is over. Silva decisively put the bad blood to rest on Saturday night, blasting through Sonnen to earn a second-round TKO victory in the main event of UFC 148.

Like always, while Silva and Sonnen were busy settling their differences, a flood of Silva's contemporaries took to Twitter to weigh-in with their thoughts. The resulting reception became a fascinating blend of fighters angry at Silva's antics, and fighters praising Silva for his greatness. NBA superstar LeBron James even got in on the action, as did former light heavyweight champion Rashad Evans, who issued a surprisingly direct challenge to "The Spider."
