Dana White and Co. is running a booming business. Put greats like Jon Jones in a cage for potentially his last time and it blooms even further.

“These are discounted tickets I got through UFC for my fight at MSG for some family and friends. UFC has some loyal fans to be selling out an arena of close to 20,000 some odd seats at prices higher than these, I love you all!” The tweet was captioned with a humbling message from the fighter. Of course, he showed some love for his fans who’d pay so much to get a glimpse of the fights. The UFC hasn’t made billions by not being fun. The fanbase is loyal and always dying for a fight. However, we also have fans who like to troll and go at it with the fighters for fun. Here are some of the best reactions from X.
