UFC Vegas 12 in Tweets: Pros react to Uriah Hall’s finish of Anderson Silva, Bryce Mitchell’s win

Anderson Silva competed in the octagon for perhaps the last time at UFC Vegas 12. But he wouldn’t commit to the “r” word.

In a fight billed as his final one, Silva lost via fourth-round TKO to Uriah Hall after an ill-advised charge that led to a head-rattling flurry of punches taken. Referee Herb Dean fought a trip to the mat after Silva grabbed ahold of his leg as the fight was waved off at the 1:24 mark of the fourth round.

Hall wasn’t the only one to take a big step up on Saturday at the UFC APEX. Bryce Mitchell got his camo shorts and did them proud with a gutsy decision over veteran Andre Fili in the co-main event.

Here’s what pro fighters had to say about UFC Vegas 12.

Anderson Silva vs. Uriah Hall

This should be a good 1 . I think it’ll end in a finish for sure! #UFCVegas12

Sad knowing Silva’s final @ufc fight will be with no crowd. Make sure you give this man a standing ovation when it’s all done win or lose!#ufc #UFCVegas #UFCVegas13

— Devin Powell (@DevinPowellMMA) November 1, 2020

When I’m 45 I want to be in shape like Anderson Silva #UFCVegas12

— Derek Brunson (@DerekBrunson) November 1, 2020

Spinning shit to the calf hurts#UFCVegas12

— Mike Jackson, Esq. (@TheTruthJackson) November 1, 2020

OK Anderson, good round one

— BONY (@JonnyBones) November 1, 2020

Nice seeing the fight between the two fighters that both turned me down and then accepted fighting each other. #ufcvegas12

— Marvin Vettori (@MarvinVettori) November 1, 2020

Too much respect being showing so far

— Baldy Ed (@brianboom135) November 1, 2020

I got 2 rounds for @SpiderAnderson #UFCVegas12

— Arianelipski (@Ariane_lipski) November 1, 2020

Hall waiting too much.
Silva waiting too much.
Same advice from both corners. Makes sense.#Vegas12

— Aljamain Sterling (@funkmasterMMA) November 1, 2020

I think I’m giving round two to Hall, octagon control

— BONY (@JonnyBones) November 1, 2020

Man Hall has a nasty jab

— BONY (@JonnyBones) November 1, 2020

Record breaking high fives #UFCVegas12

— Baldy Ed (@brianboom135) November 1, 2020

Dam Silva just got saved by the bell

— Vinc Pichel (@FromHellPichel) November 1, 2020

Damn! Uriah snuffed him! #UFCVegas12

— Mike Jackson, Esq. (@TheTruthJackson) November 1, 2020

Hope that’s the end for Anderson. He is a legend!

Bryce Mitchell vs. Andre Fili

This co main is the best fight of the card in my opinion

— Chito Vera (@chitoveraUFC) November 1, 2020

Keen for this one…well I just want to hear @ThugnastyMMA post fight speech! #UFCVegas12

— Alex Volkanovski (@alexvolkanovski) November 1, 2020

This man lives in a double wide in the middle of nowhere. If anybody deserves camo shorts its him.

— Nick Newell (@NotoriousNewell) November 1, 2020

I want some camo shorts too #ufcvegas12

— KAMARU USMAN (@USMAN84kg) November 1, 2020

If Bryce wins what does he ask for on the mic next, squirrel meat in the green room?

— Belal Muhammad (@bullyb170) November 1, 2020

Wow great grappling, pressure and control and transition by Bryce Mitchel #UFCVegas12

— GILBERT BURNS DURINHO (@GilbertDurinho) November 1, 2020

I underestimated Bryce nurmagomedov

— Belal Muhammad (@bullyb170) November 1, 2020

This has to be 1-1 going into the 3rd RD. Good TD from Bryce but no GnP, and not enough control time, in comparison to the damage done from Fili that 2nd RD.
Bryce needs to pick it up here. I think this fight is up for who wants it more this RD. #Vegas12

— Aljamain Sterling (@funkmasterMMA) November 1, 2020

This going to be an interesting last couple of minutes! #UFCVegas12

— Alex Volkanovski (@alexvolkanovski) November 1, 2020

Bryce very tenacious here! Fili needs to figure out something big or Thug Nasty will remain as he came- undefeated.#Vegas12

— Aljamain Sterling (@funkmasterMMA) November 1, 2020

Congrats @ThugnastyMMA solid win against a tough opponent #UFCVegas12

— Charles Rosa (@CharlesRosaMMA) November 1, 2020

Maurice Greene vs. Greg Hardy

greene looks like tyron woodley

— Lerone Murphy (@LeroneMurphy) November 1, 2020

Greg Hardy is thiccc!… and looks to be an improved fighter. #UFCVegas12

— Mike Jackson, Esq. (@TheTruthJackson) November 1, 2020

I hate Greg Hardy’s eyes #Ufcvegas

— Katlyn Chookagian (@blondefighter) November 1, 2020

Hardy landed BOMBS! #Vegas12

— Aljamain Sterling (@funkmasterMMA) November 1, 2020

Get him his inhaler!!!

Kevin Holland vs. Charlie Ontiveros

Sideshow Bob in the house #UFCVegas12

— Max Griffin (@MaxPainGriffin) October 31, 2020

Ontiveros rocking Khabib wig?

— Eryk Anders (@erykanders) October 31, 2020

Karate kid now #UFCVegas

— Chito Vera (@chitoveraUFC) October 31, 2020

That was his neck man.

— Aljamain Sterling (@funkmasterMMA) October 31, 2020

This guy is really reaching now talking shit to stylebender

— Vinc Pichel (@FromHellPichel) October 31, 2020

Weird finish. Hope he’s OK.

— Nick Newell (@NotoriousNewell) October 31, 2020

I think he was saying “my neck”. Hope he’s ok…that’s scary! #UFCVegas12

— Chas Skelly (@ChasSkelly) October 31, 2020

He going at the king , that’s how you do it. #UFCVegas12

— khama worthy (@thedeathstar_1) October 31, 2020

Is this guy really talking shit to @stylebender ? Relax bro #UFCFightNight181

— Tyson Pedro (@tyson_pedro_) October 31, 2020

Mans couldn’t move at all! I know that same exact feeling. Almost feeling paralyzed. Pinched nerves are no joke. All their body weight, crashing to the ground, with no space from Holland’s head = devastating. It happened to me in wrestling and MMA sparring. #Vegas12

— Aljamain Sterling (@funkmasterMMA) October 31, 2020

Bobby Green vs. Thiago Moises

Time for Thiago Moises get one more victory #UFCVegas12

— Renato Moicano UFC (@moicanoufc) October 31, 2020

Thiago Moises Jiujitsu is another level hope we get to see some more of it tonight he is a stud on the mats at ATT #UFCVegas12

— Charles Rosa (@CharlesRosaMMA) October 31, 2020

Bobby Green just needs to protect his knees from leg reaps and he should take this with his stand up. Should be a fun grappler vs striker match up. #Vegas12
