MMA community shares their thoughts in 140-characters or less

The Twitter-verse erupted Saturday night when Dennis Hallman unveiled his blueish-purple micro-briefs to the world in his UFC 133 pay-per-view meeting with Brian Ebersole.

A wide spectrum of reactions flooded people’s timelines, some offering their support and praise for Hallman’s choice of attire, others not so much. Some were just left in stunned silence, which on Twitter translates to a three little letters followed by a series of question marks: WTF?

Hallman’s skivvies are now etched in the UFC history books though, as Ebersole was awarded the first-ever “Thanks-for-getting-those-horrific-shorts-off-TV-as-soon-as-possible” bonus. Here’s a collection of what the Twitter-verse had to say about Hallman’s banana hammock on Saturday night.
