Earlier today, social media services such as Facebook, WhatsApp, Instagram, Facebook Messenger faced a massive outage. The servers for the aforementioned social media sites were down for the better part of six hours, where users were not able to use the applications at all. The outage caused widespread panic and harmed small businesses that rely on these social media platforms for their income.
Twitter baby, we did it!
— Conor McGregor (@TheNotoriousMMA) October 4, 2021
A host of MMA fighters took to Twitter to share their thoughts on the outage.’The Notorious‘ Conor McGregor tweeted, “Twitter baby, we did it!.” Former lightweight champion ‘The Eagle’ Khabib Nurmagomedov put forth a rather interesting question for his followers on Twitter. He said, “I wonder how many Russian-speaking subscribers I have on Twitter? And in general, is it worth actively tweeting in Russian?” (translated using Google translate).
IG being down is a great reminder that your brain, literacy and that book still work. Your hand, that pen and your journal still work. That phone, cell reception and that person you’ve been meaning to call still works. More important things STILL WORK.

Michael Chandler took to Twitter to share a rather interesting take on the outage. He said, “IG being down is a great reminder that your brain, literacy and that book still work. Your hand, that pen and your journal still work. That phone, cell reception and that person you’ve been meaning to call still works. More important things STILL WORK.”
Can Michael Chandler emulate what Khabib Nurmagomedov and Conor McGregor have?
‘Iron’ Michael Chandler came into the UFC as a multiple-time world champion in Bellator. In his first fight with the promotion, he secured an impressive first-round knockout win over Dan Hooker. The win set him up for a title shot in his very next fight against Charles Oliveira.
Chandler came up short in that fight as he was stopped in round two by Oliveira after nearly securing a stoppage win himself in the first round. ‘Iron’ now has the opportunity to bounce back as he takes on Justin Gaethje in an epic encounter scheduled for UFC 268 in November.
If Chandler is able to secure a win, he will put himself on a fast track to another title shot. ‘Iron’ will be hoping that he can get the job done at the second time of asking and follow the likes of Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov as a UFC lightweight champion.
