In the first bout, former champion Anderson Silva played around too much and got his face broken by Chris Weidman. This is figuratively speaking.

In the second bout, Silva put the antics aside and still left a broken man. This time it's literally speaking.

Silva was expected to beat Weidman in the rematch, but the craziest part wasn't that the opposite happened. It was how it happened. The Spider attempted to comeback after losing the first round, when tragedy happened: His lower leg snapped when it hit Wiedman's shin on an attempted kick. So within a split second, a legendary career likely came to an end and Twitter was still unsympathetic. Here's some of its immediate reactions.
