Adrian Yanez knocked out Tony Kelley at UFC Austin. On Twitter, pro fighters reacted to the finish.

In a short, yet exciting showing, Adrian Yanez made quick work of Tony Kelley at UFC Austin, scoring a TKO win via punches in the first round of their bout. Kelley was booed by the crowd pre-fight, having come under fire for bigoted remarks made about Brazilians when he cornered Andrea Lee last month. Texas’ Yanez vowed to knock him out and that’s exactly what happened.
