UFC Vegas 16 in Tweets: Pros react to Marvin Vettori’s huge win over Jack Hermansson

UFC Vegas 16 got off to an uncertain start after several opponent changes and last-minute fight cancellations. However, the remaining fights on Saturday night did not disappoint. From a quick slam knockout to a five-round banger, this main card certainly kept things interesting.

In the main event, middleweights Jack Hermansson and Marvin Vettori went the distance in an absolute war but in the end it was Vettori who grabbed the biggest win of his career by unanimous decision.

Jamahal Hill added another win to his undefeated record with a second-round TKO victory over veteran Ovince Saint Preux in the co-main event.

Below is how fighters reacted to the entire night of action in Las Vegas.
