With eight out of the 10 fights at UFC Pittsburgh ending by way of knockout or submission on Saturday, there was a ton of violence to talk about and the MMA pros watching the show didn’t disappoint.

In the evening’s main event, former UFC middleweight champion Luke Rockhold utilized a relentless ground-and-pound assault to force David Branch to tap out to strikes in the second round. The win came in Rockhold’s first outing since losing his UFC title to Michael Bisping in June 2016.

While Rockhold’s return was a popular topic, there were also exciting finishes from Mike Perry, Anthony Smith, Gregor Gillespie, and Kamaru Usman on the main card to discuss on Twitter:
