UFC Fight Island 6 in Tweets: Pros react to Brian Ortega’s dominant win, Jessica Andrade’s impressive flyweight debut

Two contenders made championship statements on Saturday.

Brian Ortega—fighting for the first time since a championship fight loss to Max Holloway in December 2018—looked reborn in the UFC Fight Island 6 main event as he outworked “The Korean Zombie” Chan Sung Jung en route to a lopsided unanimous decision win.

The co-main event saw former strawweight champion Jessica Andrade make history by becoming the first woman to record a win in three divisions in the UFC. Andrade picked up a late first-round TKO against No. 1-ranked flyweight contender Katlyn Chookagian to not only achieve the milestone, but potentially mark herself as the next title challenger at 125 pounds.

These performances had fighters buzzing on social media and you can check out the best reactions to Saturday’s card below.

Ortega defeats Korean Zombie in dominant fashion. This is a much improved Ortega that showed discipline, skill and exposed Korean Zombie’s lack of footwork and variety.

Jimmy Crute knocks out Modestas Bukauskas in Round 1

That ref saved him. He got a 3 flash KOs in a 3 second span. Made a bad read and paid for it.

— Aljamain Sterling (@funkmasterMMA) October 18, 2020

Crute #ufcfightisland

— Justin Tafa (@justin_tafa) October 18, 2020

The timing on that right hand from @CruteJim was so good and the accuracy on those follow up shots was NASTY! That’s 50k for sure. #UFCFightIsland6

James Krause def. Claudio Silva via unanimous decision

Looks like a clear win for Krause if you ask me.

— michael (@bisping) October 18, 2020

Krause is a fighters fighter. #ufc

— Kevin Holland (@Trailblaze2top) October 18, 2020

@TheJamesKrause won that with one hand it seems! Hoping that left is ok..

— Tim Elliott (@TElliott125) October 18, 2020

I’ve been saying it for a long time, @TheJamesKrause is a top 10 welterweight. Dude is so legit. #UFCFightIsland6

— Michael Chiesa (@MikeMav22) October 18, 2020

Nice work @JamesKrauseMMA

— Johnny Hollywood (@HollywoodCase) October 18, 2020

Nice fight by Krause and Silva . I see most media had it 20-18 Krause after 2 rounds . I had it 1-1 . MMA needs a legit scoring system . The current scoring system is too subjective . Every sports has a definitive scoring system . We need to update ours #UFCFightIsland6

— Derek Brunson (@DerekBrunson) October 18, 2020

Team Krause all dayyy!!! Boss man getting the job done #GloryAllDay #UFCFightIsland6

There was a lot of emotion involved in this fight, so maybe I looked at it more with my heart, but for sure it was a great fight.
Congrats @guram_dze on your win and @gamer_mma don’t worry. It’s just a beginning. #UFCFightIsland6

— Jan Blachowicz (@JanBlachowicz) October 17, 2020

Hell no! @gamer_mma won this fight! #UFCFightIsland6

— Krzysztof Jotko (@JotkoMMA) October 17, 2020

That interview was sad. @guram_dze claims he didn’t win the fight but I definitely had him winning. Either way it was a great fight.

— Amanda Bobby Brundage (@ABCnation115) October 17, 2020

Awesome high level fight #UFCFightIsland6

— Jared Gordon (@JFlashGordonMMA) October 17, 2020

Wow! Respect for the honesty! Never seen that type of honesty #UFCFightIsland6 #number1bullshit

Honest guy but it was a great fight could’ve went either way
