“Oh yea and welcome back Tito” -Dana White

UFC President Dana White loves Twitter. Anyone who has seen a recent UFC event knows this. Since White has joined the Twitter family, he has broken some major news through the 140-word limit cult phenomenon that makes chatting between mobile phones and Internet users very convenient.

With six words and a smiley (yes the President of a billion dollar company uses smileys), White announced the return of former light heavyweight champion Tito Ortiz to the UFC. At least that is how we are interpreting it. You decide for yourself. Here is the actual Tweet from White:

Georges St. Pierre knocks out Thiago Alves

Georges St. Pierre must be extremely focused for his upcoming bout against Thiago “Pitbull” Alves at UFC 100 because according to his most recent “tweet,” the champ is dreaming about the no. 1 welterweight contender.

The psychology of dreams is extremely fascinating. Since the beginning of time people have been trying to understand the strange happenings of the dream world. Dr. Melfi tried to help Tony Soprano interpret a dream where a stork flies off with his penis. A friend of mine once told me about a gang of David Letterman midgets chasing him down an alley.

GSP’s recent dream did not have anything to do with storks, penises, or David Letterman, but it is interesting nonetheless. For one thing, GSP does not tweet very often. His past four tweets were Mar. 9, Mar. 23, June 5, and June 25. So for him to even tweet this message is pretty significant.

Frank Trigg returns to the UFC with multi-fight deal

In a move that many long time MMA fans had given up hope of ever happening, Frank “Twinkle Toes” Trigg (19-6) is returning to the UFC. An update PRO MMA ( received as one of Trigg’s followers on Twitter reads, “Veteran welterweight Frank Trigg returning to the UFC, signs multi-fight deal.”

Trigg who is now 37-years-old (we share the same birthday), last appeared inside the UFC Octagon at UFC 54 back in August of 2005 when he fought Georges St. Pierre. Trigg went 3-2 in the UFC. He lost two title fights against Matt Hughes and he lost to St. Pierre. It is interesting to note that all of Trigg’s losses in the UFC came by way of Rear Naked Choke submissions.

Trigg’s victories in the UFC came against Renato “Charuto” Verissimo at UFC 50 and Dennis Hallman at UFC 48. Another interesting note is Matt Hughes beat Trigg twice, but Dennis Hallman beat Matt Hughes twice, and Trigg beat Dennis Hallman twice.
