Pros react to GSP-Hendricks decision
The best part of Twitter is that it allows people to post their immediate thoughts when a big event occurs. In MMA, it’s great to see the immediate reaction of fighters to the outcome of a big bout, especially a controversial one. When Georges St-Pierre was announced as the winner over Johny Hendricks, it of course led to a flood of tweets from fighters, fans, and media alike:
Kevin Iole: St Pierre wins a split decision .. I strongly disagree. Bad call
Ariel Helwani: Wow. GSP wins via split decision. Man.
Matt Hughes: With the decision last night I would have been less surprised if they gave Johny EVERY round. Will go down as worst decision in UFC history.
Joe Lauzon: I thought Hendricks clearly had 2/4… GSP had 3… 1/5 were close, but I had GSP. #FightToFinish #ufc167
Dan Hardy: Hendricks – Dominant and impressive, just lacked the pace needed to take a title. I think he will be the next champion. Immediate rematch.
Kenny Florian: Have it 3 rounds to 2 for #GSP #AndStill #UFC167
Jeremey Piven: @FantasyBBJay: @jeremypiven @danawhite you see GSP winning? Johnny Hendricks looks like he won that fight hands down.
Johny Hendricks: Man hands are a little sore after last nights fights. But u should see the other guy lol. pic.twitter.com/3bEGnYdOSm
Carlos Condit: W T F…. Worst decision EVER
Jamie Varner: Wow that is garbage! @JohnyHendricks won that fight!
