With the historical cancellation of UFC 151 that was supposed to take place on Sept 1st, the entire MMA world made their thoughts known on Twitter. Here are some of the most intriguing (in my opinion) from MMA professionals and fighters.

Next question – did the whole event need canceling because the main event was lost? And is it Jones’ fault that it was canceled? — Dan Hardy (@danhardymma) August 23, 2012
Now the entire UFC card is scrapped because Jones didn’t accept a fight with a 185lb’er who is completely out of shape.WOW.Just wow. — Joe Rogan (@joerogan) August 23, 2012
I feel sorry the most for the fighters on the undercard that are missing a paycheck after a long camp.My thoughts go out to them. — Joe Rogan (@joerogan) August 23, 2012
