Twitter reacts to UFC 236 epic main and co-main
The card started a little slower than usual with seven decisions, and while the main and co-main interim title fights were decisions too, they were epic.
Israel Adesanya vs. Kelvin Gastelum

Good gosh!! #UFC236— Cortney Casey (@CastIron_Casey) April 14, 2019
This fight is bananas. After looking dead to rites in after 10 minutes, Holloway takes R3, and is controlling R4 until a few hard Poirier counters and a knee on the break that splits his face wide open.— Jordan Breen (@jordanbreen) April 14, 2019
This fight is so stupid in so many ways. Just two guys beating the absolute crap out of each other.— Andreas Hale (@AndreasHale) April 14, 2019
This is becoming one of those fights were years are taken off careers. Max has ate way too many power shots. Too tough for his own good.— Andreas Hale (@AndreasHale) April 14, 2019
What a fight. Max Holloway raises Dustin Poirier's hand and points to him at the end of the fight. Unreal. Think "The Diamond" just made his dream come true. #UFC236— Mike Bohn (@MikeBohnMMA) April 14, 2019

Sign me up for Khabib Nurmagomedov vs. Dustin Poirier to unify the 155lbs titles. Poirier has more than earned his shot.
I don’t agree with the judges 49:46, I got a draw, my respect to both fighters, and Porier’s achievement so far cannot be denied, my congratulations Dustin, see you in September. 🦅 vs 💎— khabib nurmagomedov (@TeamKhabib) April 14, 2019
