Pros react to Pettis submitting Henderson

 

Anthony Pettis looked as impressive as he ever as submitting Benson Henderson at UFC 164 to become the UFC lightweight champion. His performance of course got a reaction from fans and media, and thanks to Twitter we can see the first reaction from some of the MMA and sport's biggest names:

It's even more impressive that #Pettis submitted #Henderson instead winning by KO in my opinion. #UFC164 #AndNew

Pettis is really exciting to watch, and Henderson looked like he might be able to wrasslefuck him for five rounds. What a way to pull through with the win no matter what. That is what champs do.
