Dana White Twitter account bashes 'M-Done, Vadummy and butt-hurt Fedor fans'

Mixed martial arts (MMA) fans who were expecting a "tweet" from Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President Dana White after Fedor Emelianenko's shocking loss to Antonio Silva at Strikeforce: "Fedor vs. Silva" on Feb. 12, probably didn't go to bed last Saturday night disappointed.

In fact, they might have gotten a little more than they bargained for.

White, who tweeted a simple ": D" after "The Last Emperor" was submitted by Fabricio Werdum back in June 2010, engaged in a three hour mud-slinging contest via his official Twitter account to let the "butt-hurt" Fedor fans know "reality is a bitch."

Emelianenko suffered his second straight defeat last night when his quarterfinal grand prix match-up against "Bigfoot" Silva was stopped in the second round after the cageside doctor ruled the former PRIDE heavyweight champion unfit to continue.

White, obsessed with the acquisition of Emelianenko during 2009 negotiations with M-1 Global, went from blank checks to "no thanks" after the former WAMMA kingpin ended his 27-fight winning streak against "Vai Cavalo" in San Jose, who at the time was considered to be UFC refuse.

The Russian gladiator was first up for grabs following the collapse of Pride FC in 2007. The UFC lobbied hard to bring the Sambo champion on board however, talks broke down when the parties could not agree on an exclusive fight contract, eventually leading him to Affliction under his own terms.

After "The tee-shirt guys" collapsed under the weight of their own spending, co-promotion once again trumped cash, as Strikeforce brought M-1 Global into a partnership similar to the one it had with the now-defunct Elite XC back in 2008.

Emelianenko's record since that partnership is 1-3.

Did Dana White get the last laugh? Or will Fedor still go down as the best ever?
