The UFC’s third card on Yas Island is officially a wrap.

With the men’s 125-pound division still without a champion, fans were hoping to finally see a belt wrapped around a flyweight fighter by the end of the night as Deiveson Figueiredo‏‏‎ and Joseph Benavidez made the walk to the octagon.

Right out of the gate, Figueiredo‏‏‎ blitzed Benavidez with a barrage of strikes before finally ending it with a bloody rear-naked choke.

Below is how fighters reacted to the entire night of action on Yas Island.
