Matt Brown and Erik Silva waged one of the best fights in recent history and maybe one of the best first rounds in the history of the sport.

It's always great to see what other UFC fighters think of a fight or performance, and there is no better way to than to scour Twitter during and after a big fight. In this particular case, Twitter went nuts reacting to the first round and fight:

He's a huge welterweight, and I'm sure he has a very difficult weight cut. His options are to either lay off the body building, trim down and make welterweight easier or move up to middleweight.

It was a good fight, but would not call a one sided beating one of the best fights ever

Just re-watched the fight again. Matt brown didn't land anything significant before it went to the ground. They talked about how silva had new people around him for this camp, less people so they focused on him more. He still gassed supposedly his diet is terrible. Maybe he needs to go to 155 with a good diet and better camp. He would beat everybody if he could last more than 5 min

I need to watch that fight again. It was nothing short of amazing and Rogan said it perfectly that Brown drug Silva into Hell.

Lol at the sudden disdain for the Cowboy and also thinking Silva wasn't gassed after Brown got back up.

As long as he's the one giving the beating. He looks terrible every time he loses momentum and never gets it back. The same liver kick Brown came back from stopped cerrone several fights ago

I would love to see Cerrone move up for a fight against Matt Brown. You know the shit would hit the fan in that cage.
