UFC 267 is in the books, and it was filled with so many great moments and fantastic performances. The spectacular — and free — numbered event was capped off by Glover Teixeira scoring a huge upset to take Jan Blachowicz’s belt at 42-years-old, but there were also a lot of fantastic performances.

Co-headlining the event was a high level technical striking affair between Petr Yan and Cory Sandhagen for the interim bantamweight title. It saw the latter showcase his tricky, movement and volume based style early on, putting up an insane pace up until Yan made better reads and shifted the tide as the fight progressed.

The two fighters being dubbed as the “next Khabib” surpassed the already huge hype behind them, with Islam Makhachev and Khamzat Chimaev both executing perfectly with dominant and early submissions.

Here’s a quick twitter thread with a brief recap and analysis of the event, that’s fitting for people’s social media era attention spans:
