It's Mother's Day today (May 12, 2013), and few other holidays bring out the love of the mixed martial arts (MMA) community than the one that pays appreciation to the women who birthed the fighters who beat each other into oblivion for our viewing pleasures.
Another special aspect of this Mother's Day is the fact it is the first since women fighters were brought into the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) and real-life moms such as Cat Zingano and Sara McMann have stepped inside the Octagon and earned victories.
The love was flowing on social media today and if you missed any of them, here are some of the top tweets from fighters, media and other MMA figures and personalities on Mother's Day 2013.
If you've yet to show appreciation to your own mother on this great day, get to it right now. There's still time left.
