The fighters react to UFC 189: McGregor vs. Mendes on Twitter

New, comments

All the best, worst and most public fighter reactions from the UFC's own as they watched the fights at UFC 189 unfold from the sidelines.

What a main card, what a night what an incredible string of fights. UFC 189 delivered a PPV experience that was above and beyond anything they'd done in years. The feeling of the PPV was practically beyond the scope of any of the UFC's past efforts. Their recent rebranding in terms of presentation has paid off what a product that feels bigger, more important, and more individual to the event than ever before. For once MGM Grand felt like it's own stage rather than just another darkened room hosting UFC fights.

Of course, with a night of action like this, the fighters themselves had plenty to say about it, so check out all the best of their reactions below.
