Nice one brotha!! @robwhittakermma

Having shared the octagon with both those guys…the mental aspect of the fights is almost a grueling as the physical. Constantly have to be on your toes entire 25 mins. Great win @robwhittakermma #UFCFightIsland3

— Stephen Thompson (@WonderboyMMA) July 26, 2020

@robwhittakermma congratulations my man. #UFCFightIsland3

— John Wayne Makdessi (@JohnMakdessi) July 26, 2020

Hell yeahh!!! Sooo incredibly happy to see Rob back in the W column.

Aussies repping at the highest level!! Let’s gooo #UFCFightIsland3

— Megan Anderson (@MeganA_mma) July 26, 2020

Striking judge gives the 5th to till for the blood, wrestling judge gives it to Rob on takedowns. Big question here is what discipline does the 3rd judge favor

— Louis Smolka (@LASTSAMURAIUFC) July 26, 2020

Today is a good day! #ReaperNation #UFCFightIsland3

— Jessy Jess (@missjessyjess) July 26, 2020

Wow did he get it with that last takedown.

— Belal Muhammad (@bullyb170) July 26, 2020

This was the correct decision I believe and all 3 judges got it correct. #UFCFightIsland3

— Alan Jouban (@AlanJouban) July 26, 2020

We were supposed to fight for the title. This is a man that has gained my respect & admiration. But @robwhittakermma and I have unfinished business. Alright I’m coming off 3 losses.
I know the fans would love this. #UFCFightIsland3

I feel for Nogueira here… tough loss to swallow. I don’t think he loss but I don’t think he won either? To go out in a classic fight like that, is nothing to hang his head about. Thank you for all the years U poured into this game & paving the way for us! #UFCFightIsland3

Don’t sleep on @FabricioWerdum one of the best jujitsu practitioners of all time

— Dan “50k” Ige (@Dynamitedan808) July 26, 2020

Gus was a few steps behind on that arm bar. Wish we would have gotten to see them mix it up a little bit more. Congrats Werdum! #UFCFightIsland3

— Alan Jouban (@AlanJouban) July 26, 2020

Wowwww what a victory for the old dawg Werdum! I did not see that coming. He still has juice in him heading into free agency

— Arjan Singh Bhullar (@TheOneASB) July 26, 2020

So Werdum is back to his old self WOW #UFCFightIsland3

— Gerald Meerschaert (@The_Real_GM3) July 26, 2020

Didn’t expect Gus to be that easy to takedown in this fight. Wouldn’t be surprised if he retires again. Big win for werdum after that last fight

— Brian Kelleher (@brianboom135) July 26, 2020

Carla Esparza defeats Marina Rodriguez

Outside of the damage, I believe this is the best Esparza has ever looked. Mixing it up well. Just needs to ice the RD and she should get the decision, if not the finish. Rodriguez has nasty striking and still throwing strikes off her back to keep it interesting!

— Aljamain Sterling (@funkmasterMMA) July 26, 2020

Take a bow ladies!! That was a fun scrap from beginning to end!#UFCFightIsland3 #TheWeeklyScraps!

— Aljamain Sterling (@funkmasterMMA) July 26, 2020

Paul Craig submits Gadzhimurad Antigulov

Paul Craig got his street cred back tn, after son brimmed him with his fitted at the stare downs. On gang, that shit couldn’t go unpunished! If ya know, ya know. #UFCFightIsland3 #TheWeeklyScraps!
