In a crazy war, Thiago Santos emerged successful after three rounds at UFC Sao Paulo’s main event. With many twists and turns, the Brazilian left Eryk Anders totally exhausted and unable to get back on his feet after the third round, which ended the fight via TKO. Anders was able to get back up and walk around the cage, then exit back to his locker room, which is good news after things looked much more serious. On Twitter, pro fighters enjoyed the back-and-forth affair.

What a war!!!— Rafael dos Anjos (@RdosAnjosMMA) September 23, 2018
Gutsy performance from @erykanders. I think it was the fatigue more than the elbows. Being a pressure fighter, it’s hard to step up on six days notice for a 5 round fight. Still a great performance. #UFCSãoPaulo— Michael Chiesa (@MikeMav22) September 23, 2018
