UFC 160 in Tweets: Pros react to Cain Velasquez, Junior dos Santos and T.J. Grant knockouts, more

UFC 160 promised a night of lightweight might, heavyweight splendor and all-around fireworks. Needless to say, it lived up to expectations. By the time the dust settled, we had two freshly minted No. 1 contenders, a slew of spectacular finishes — including another entry into 2013’s spinning back kick catalog — and yet another dominant performance from the man dubbed the baddest on the planet. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, there was plenty to take away from UFC 160. The road map is clearer, and like always, along the way a slew of professional fighters hopped aboard to enjoy the ride. Instead of 25 minutes of ground and pound and out positioning”¦ we got 81 seconds of ass whopping. Awesome fight. #UFC160 ”” Joe Lauzon (@JoeLauzon) May 26, 2013 What a bad stoppage it’s a title fight c’mon ”” Michael Johnson (@FollowTheMenace) May 26, 2013 Quick work by the champion #velasquez ”” Pascal Krauss (@pascalkrauss) May 26, 2013 Good stoppage 11 unanswered strikes! @cainmma ”” Jamie Varner (@jamievarner) May 26, 2013 #Velasquez is gonna keep that @ufc belt for a while I reckon.

Can’t take damage like that without improving position or defending yourself. That said- I wanted more. ”” Kyle Kingsbury (@Kingsbu) May 26, 2013 Would big foot be asleep after another 2 or 3 punches? Maybe so, but I think in a title fight, the ref stopped it kinda early. ”” Vinny Magalhaes (@VinnyMMA) May 26, 2013 Man this Mario Yamazaki cannot be a referee ….Esse Mario Yamazaki ñ dar chances ! ”” Raphael Assuncao (@RaphaAssuncao) May 26, 2013 F!!!!
