UFC Vegas 6 in tweets: Pros react to Derrick Lewis’ knockout of Aleksei Oleinik

With Derrick Lewis making the walk to the octagon at UFC Vegas 6, fans were expecting fireworks from “The Black Beast.” But standing opposite him, submission specialist Aleksei Oleinik looked to halt Lewis’ streak.

Too bad, the Houston native was having none of that as he starched his Russian counterpart with a second-round knockout.

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