UFC 263 is in the books, and it saw one title change hands, a champion with another dominant title defense, and some high drama brought on by the third five-round bout on the card.

In the main event, Israel Adesanya defended his title with an impressive shutout performance, going 50-45 in his rematch against Marvin Vettori. The co-main event also stole the show, with Brandon Moreno managing to choke out Deiveson Figueiredo after another entertaining contest between the two flyweights. He became the new flyweight champion and first title holder from Mexico.

Leon Edwards also had a very impressive showing picking apart Nate Diaz for over 24 minutes, up until the Stockton star landed a big shot that almost ended the fight. Diaz didn’t have enough time to complete the miracle comeback, but he once again provided some insane drama that he’s been known for, pouring on some offense until the final bell.

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:
