Heading into UFC Vegas 17, fight fans were itching for another epic card to close out 2020.

When the original main event of Leon Edwards vs. Khamzat Chimaev fell through, a replacement scrap between Stephen Thompson vs. Geoff Neal had all the makings of another violent headliner inside the octagon.

Both men absorbed a hellacious amount of damage during the 25-minute fight, but it was Thompson who emerged victorious while Neal suffered the first loss of his professional career.

Below is how fighters reacted to the entire night of action in Las Vegas.
