#UFC196 took over the Twitter world

Thanks to @Twitterdata, this global map shows the Twitter mentions of Saturday Night's four biggest names: Nate Diaz, Conor McGregor, Holly Holm and new women's bantamweight champion Miesha Tate.



Twitter wasn't alone. Following the March 5 event, UFC President Dana White told reporters it was trending to be the biggest success in the history of the company.
