It was a short fight, but welterweight prospect Geoff Neal had enough time to make a statement at UFC 245. Against the heavy-handed Mike Perry, ‘Handz of Steel’ only needed 90 seconds to put his opponent away with a flurry of strikes that started with a head kick that dazed ‘Platinum’ in the opening minute of the fight. On Twitter, pro athletes reacted to the finish.

Man that left head kick from Neal is dangerous. Future challenger most likely . Nobody puts perry away like that. Good killer instinct #UFC245— Brian Kelleher (@brianboom135) December 15, 2019
@Benaskren I think Perry gonna be on the streets sooner than even he was thinking! Crazy how a brainless brawler gets such a push in the first place— Arjan Singh Bhullar (@TheOneASB) December 15, 2019
