UFC 251 in Tweets: the pros react to the victory of Kamaru Usman over Jorge Masvidal, the decision of Alexander Volkanovski over Max Holloway


UFC 251 is officially on the books.

Seizing the map stacked inside in Abu Dhabi, combat fans were preparing to witness a trio of title fights in the Flash Forum.

Kicking off the three title fights, Petr Yan and Jose Aldo went to war for the vacant bantamweight title on the line. While the two fighters kept up the pace for the first three rounds, Yan turned the corner late in the fight, culminating in a violent TKO in the fifth round.

Not to be outdone, Alexander Volkanovski sought to make 2-0 against former champion Max Holloway. After five rounds of hotly contested fights, Volkanovski emerged victorious.

In the main event of the night, UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman put his title at stake against UFC “BMF” champion Jorge Masvidal. With palpable bad blood in the air, Usman blocked the noise en route to a dominant decision victory.

This is how their combat mates reacted to the possible night on “Fight Island”.
