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.
