Fighters are a'twitter: Which fighters should you follow?

If you haven't checked out Twitter yet, you should. It's a great way to stay connected to your favorite fighters, and it's a way they stay connected to you. Of course, that connection has gotten some athletes in trouble, but for the most part, it's good, clean fun. Here are a few fighters you should check out on Twitter.

Amir Sadollah -- Just as he is in interviews, "The Ultimate Fighter" winner Amir is funny and self-deprecating. My only wish is that he would Twitter more often.

Kenny Florian -- The lightweight contender Twitters several times a day, updating fans and friends on his training, and answering queries from fans. The other day, he said he was happy that he didn't have to throw a "chicken wrist," though he still hasn't explained what it is.

Urijah Faber -- The California Kid uses his Twitter to give you a peek into the California lifestyle. He shares pictures and lets his fans know of upcoming appearances and interviews.

Jason "Mayhem" Miller -- Mayhem provides updates that only Mayhem can. My favorite recent tweet of his was, "Man, [expletive] this tweeting [expletive]. you can get all addicted, and be a tweetaholic, hit twit bottom and have to go to tweethab." His Twitter is also a stalker's dream, as he likes to give out his location. Often.

Joe Lauzon -- For nerds, Joe Lauzon's Twitter is a dream come true, because he is proudly a nerd like you. He loves to share his nerdiness on Twitter. For example, "just ordered Wolverine origins movie tickets for thursday night."

A few others worth following: B.J. Penn, Shane Carwin, Ryan Bader, Arianny Celeste and Joe Rogan. Don't forget to follow Kevin Iole and me, too.
