The fighters react to UFC Fight Night: Machida vs. Romero on Twitter

New, comments

All the best, worst and most public fighter reactions from the UFC's own, watching the fight night action live as it happens.

Stephen R. Sylvanie-USA TODAY Sports

An interesting night of action for the UFC and one that mostly delivered exactly as it was expected to. The action fighters put on action fights the grinders ground out decisions. The big dramatic A+ card topper delivered absolutely everything, right up to a cringe inducing post fight speech. What the UFC does with Yoel Romero is going to be interesting... it probably won't involve a lot of mic time. Otherwise, Lorenz Larkin continues to look like a better fighter than ever at WW and Thiago Santos put on a show of his improving striking skills.

But, those are just my thoughts. What did the UFC fighters themselves have to say? Here's the best, worst, and most public of their thoughts on the night's action:

Sirwan Kakai vs. Danny Martinez

Steve Montgomery vs. Tony Sims

Lewis Gonzalez vs. Leandro Silva

Joe Merritt vs. Alex Oliveira

Hacran Dias vs. Levan Makashvili

Steve Bosse vs. Thiago Santos

Antonio Carlos Junior vs. Eddie Gordon

Lorenz Larkin vs. Santiago Ponzinibbio

Lyoto Machida vs. Yoel Romero
