UFC Fight Island 5 in Tweets: Pros react to Cory Sandhagen, Joaquin Buckley’s insane head-kick KOs

Cory Sandhagen wanted to make a statement against Marlon Moraes at UFC Fight Island 5, and he did all that and more.

After losing the No. 1 contender spot to Aljamain Sterling in his previous fight, Sandhagen delivered a pitch-perfect performance that ended with a spectacular wheel-kick knockout at the 1:03 mark of the second round.

On a night filled with highlight-reel stoppages, including possibly the “Knockout of the Year” (and maybe best UFC knockout ever), Sandhagen ended Saturday’s event on Fight Island with another high note.

Here’s what pros had to say about UFC Fight Island 5
