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.

Below is how fighters reacted to the entire night of action on Yas Island.

Jack Hermansson ‏‏‎ submits ‏‏‎ ‎Kelvin Gastelum‏‏‎ ‎‏‏‎ with heel hook

Ain’t no joke!! #UFCFightIsland2 https://t.co/1MZb2QroW2

— Alex Volkanovski (@alexvolkanovski) July 19, 2020

Keep your head up! @KelvinGastelum #ufcfightisland2

— Henry Cejudo (@HenryCejudo) July 19, 2020

Wow #UFCFightIsland2

— GILBERT BURNS DURINHO (@GilbertDurinho) July 19, 2020

Congrats to the joker, Gastelum is a beast!! Keep your head up man #UFCFightIsland2

— Marlon Moraes (@MMARLONMORAES) July 19, 2020

Wow got it to work and then Gastelum gets heel hooked.. great win for Jack. Surprised he couldn’t get out of that.

— Chris Weidman (@chrisweidman) July 19, 2020

Omg a heel hookie!!!!! #UFCFightIsland2

— Tatiana Suarez (@tatianaufc) July 19, 2020

Damn that was terrible defense by Gastelum!

— Funky (@Benaskren) July 19, 2020

Hermanson needs one more win for title shot!

— Funky (@Benaskren) July 19, 2020

I knew it!! Good job Jack. He’s hyped #UFCFightIsland2

— Niko Price (@Nikohybridprice) July 19, 2020

Ommggg I called the sub !!! #UFCFightIsland2

— JIMI MANUWA (@POSTERBOYJM) July 19, 2020

Wait, did jack just hit a heel hook? Woah!! #ufc

— Julian marquez (@JMarquezMMA) July 19, 2020

The commentators saying Gastelum should have push with his other leg on his butt or roll makes me think they weren’t watching the same fight as I did. His other leg was being controlled by Hermanson. He couldn’t do a thing. ‍♂️

— Siyar The Great (@Siyarized) July 19, 2020

Big kudos to Hermansson, that was SIKKK but I’m still surprised Kelvin got caught with that. I feel like he could have gotten out. Keep your head up KG. #UFCFightIsland2

— Michael Chiesa (@MikeMav22) July 19, 2020

Omg!!! Hermansson with the nasty heel hook….

Did not see that coming and that quickly!!! #UFCFightIsland2

— Megan Anderson (@MeganA_mma) July 19, 2020

Wow! I was not expecting that!

— Randa Markos (@randamma) July 19, 2020

That was not in the cards #UFCFightIsland2

— Angela Hill (@AngieOverkill) July 19, 2020

No shit! Footsies night tonight in the octagon #UFCFightIsland2

— Alpha Cat Zingano (@CatZingano) July 19, 2020

Wow! Hermansson is a dangerous man! #UFCFightIsland2

— Alan Jouban (@AlanJouban) July 19, 2020

— JIMI MANUWA (@POSTERBOYJM) July 19, 2020

Marc Diakiese‏‏‎ ‎defeats‏‏‎ ‎Rafael Fiziev‏‏‎

Sick fight! Fiziev is legit! Diakiese battled through an early busted nose in RD 1 and didn’t back down. Very competive fight. I thought Diakiese calf kicks were going to dictate the fight, but Fiziev shut that down early.#UFCFightIsland2 #TheWeeklyScraps

— Aljamain Sterling (@funkmasterMMA) July 19, 2020

Whata fight congrats @Marc_Diakiese and @RafaelFiziev #UFCFightIsland

This kid has such a bright future. One of the hardest workers I’ve ever met. 4-0 in the UFC is a very impressive start. #ufc #ufcfightisland #gloryunited #weareglory @ Yas Island https://t.co/IjtYrbvirY

— Zak Cummings (@ZakCummings) July 19, 2020

Fiziev is winning some fans for sure with this performance. This dude is nasty. #UFCFightIsland2

Wow. She just ripped her leg off !! #UFCFightIsland2

— JIMI MANUWA (@POSTERBOYJM) July 19, 2020

Holy crap!!! That was crazy!! Carolina was stuck in a calf slicer but needed to hip into her opponent more. Ends up getting caught in a knee bar! Never seen those two transitions together before. #UFCFightIsland2

— Alan Jouban (@AlanJouban) July 19, 2020

EEEYYYAHHHHGHGHGAHAHAHAH!
