UFC Fight Night 26 in Tweets: Pros react to Chael Sonnen's victory, Travis Browne vs. Alistair Overeem, Conor McGregor, more

Esther Lin, MMA Fighting

There was no other way it could've ended. Even after Travis Browne's gutsy rally, even after Matt Brown's 29-second statement, even after the next step of Conor McGregor, the UFC's debut on FOX Sports 1 was always destined to end with Chael Sonnen -- the network star's hand wrapped around a mic, his mouth furiously waxing poetic about the next man in his sights.

Yes, Sonnen's brash callout of Wanderlei Silva provided a fitting finale to UFC Fight Night 26, capping off a wild night filled with fearless comebacks and more than a few barnburners. As always a flood of pro fighters had plenty to say about the action, but first a few old friends couldn't help but directly address "The American Gangster."
