At UFC 237, in an outcome that felt a little like a flashback to Anderson Silva’s second loss to Chris Weidman, Jared Cannonier got the job done after finishing the ‘Spider’ with a leg kick that sent the former champion down to the canvas without a chance to recover, snatching the biggest win of his career so far in the process. On Twitter, pro fighters were sorry the fight ended in such a way.
Wesley Snipes doing UFC now too?? I hope he ready for the Spider! #UFC237— Aljamain Sterling (@FunkMaster_UFC) May 12, 2019
Wish the fans at #ufc237 could be a bit more respectful regardless of the outcome— Curtis Blaydes (@RazorBlaydes265) May 12, 2019
Ugh, devastated for Silva, you never want to see a fight end that way. Touching moment btw him and Cannonier after, that dude is legit. #UFC237— Angela Hill (@AngieOverkill) May 12, 2019
