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.
