Fighters react to UFC Fight Night: Barnett vs. Nelson on Twitter

Check out how the fighters reacted to all the action that happened at UFC Fight Night: Barnett vs. Nelson in Saitama, Japan.

Joshua Lindsey-USA TODAY Sports

Let's be honest with ourselves, this wasn't a UFC Fight Night met with high expectations. The preliminary card was largely lacking in drama until the Keita Nakamura vs. Li Jingliang fight, but the main card more than made up for it. Josh Barnett and Roy Nelson had a surprisingly fun battle all the way to the final minute, Uriah Hall pulled off a shocking upset of Gegard Mousasi, Diego Brandao violently disposed of Katsunori Kikuno, Takeya Mizugaki had an emotional outpouring after beat George Roop, Mizuto Hirota and Teruto Ishihara engaged in a thrilling draw, and Kyoji Horiguchi got back on track against Chico Camus.

But enough of me talking/typing. That's not what you came here for. You wanted the reactions of UFC fighters on Twitter and I'm here to provide them, so here they are:
