Winners and losers on social media

Since the early days when the sport was anything but a mainstream business, the MMA industry has thrived and survived through various websites, forums, and – perhaps most importantly – social media platforms.

The fighters interact with fans, each other and many others via Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, which helps outsiders better understand the minds of the athletes.

Following Saturday’s UFC Fight Night 208 in London, several of the winning and losing fighters, along with their coaches, training partners or family members, took to social media to react to the event or share a message with supporters.

Check out some of these reactions.
