UFC 250 was much better than the most people expected but the multiple additions to the card probably helped a lot. The main and co-main event delivered and where at the center of the debates in the online MMA community.
In the Main event Amanda Nunes put up a clinic against Felicia Spencer who looked liked she had no business being in the octagon with Nunes. The fight could have easily been stoped after the 4th round but Spencer refused to give up. After that performance it seems impossible to see Amanda Nunes lose either of her belts considering the state of the divisions. At only 32 she’s alone on top of the world and it must feel lonely without any rivals right now.
In the co-main event Cody Garbrandt made his return to the octagon with a brutal knockout of Raphael Assuncao. After struggling a bit in the first round, he didn’t let his emotions get the better of him and finished a very defensively sound fighter in devastating fashion. Has Cody Garbrandt matured? His performance seems to indictate just that and everyone is looking forward to this next part of his young career.
Other UFC fighters and celebrities shared some thoughts about these two fights on twitter, here are some of their reactions:
After a third round, many fighters calls for the fight to be stopped on social media due to brutal punishment from Nunes to Spencer.
