UFC Fight Island 2 in tweets: Pros react to Deiveson Figueiredo flyweight title win, Jack Hermansson’s heel hook

The UFC’s third card on Yas Island is officially a wrap.

With the men’s 125-pound division still without a champion, fans were hoping to finally see a belt wrapped around a flyweight fighter by the end of the night as Deiveson Figueiredo‏‏‎ and Joseph Benavidez made the walk to the octagon.

Right out of the gate, Figueiredo‏‏‎ blitzed Benavidez with a barrage of strikes before finally ending it with a bloody rear-naked choke.
