Below is how fighters reacted to the entire night of action in Las Vegas.
As for marv... sorry ork.— D (@darrentill2) April 11, 2021
It wasn’t the prettiest win but a wins a win and it means so much to him you can see.
That fight told me he knew he couldn’t strike with me so he was going to try take me down
Even if he were to succeed in takedowns he wouldn’t of been able to keep me
There— D (@darrentill2) April 11, 2021
I would of hurt this man for five rounds on the feet
But hey who the fuck am I to talk?
I pulled out of the fight so every right I have goes out the window with that
Whatever happens for Marvin next good luck
I’m sure we’ll meet soon
I’ve got a fake injury to recover from
And repair— D (@darrentill2) April 11, 2021
See you all soon
All very soon x
I feel like Marvin Vettori owes me money for the blueprint! #UFCVegas23— Derek Brunson (@DerekBrunson) April 10, 2021

Arnold Allen edges Sodiq Yusuff
Allen looking great today. Yusuff was having success when he took some steam off his shots this RD but then gets rocked with a head kick. Allen up 2 RDs in my book. #UFCVegas23— Aljamain Sterling (@funkmasterMMA) April 10, 2021
Arnold with another great performance, this guy is ready for the top 5!!— Aiemann Zahabi (@Aiemannzahabi) April 10, 2021
Julian Marquez submits Sam Alvey
WOW! That was a vicious sequence! Cuban Missile Crisis! #UFCVegas23— Aljamain Sterling (@funkmasterMMA) April 10, 2021
Damn Marquez threw some heat there!!— Funky (@Benaskren) April 10, 2021
Gonna just say I’m loving the new Venom fight kits— Vinc Pichel (@FromHellPichel) April 10, 2021
Left hooks were there all day for Marquez. Solid finish #UFCVegas23— Vince Morales (@vandetta135) April 10, 2021
Mackenzie Dern submits Nina Nunes
I didn’t think much of Dern when she got whooped by Ribas. But man she has been impressing me lately.— Funky (@Benaskren) April 10, 2021
Dern is a monster!!— Belal Muhammad (@bullyb170) April 10, 2021
Dern is underrated. I don’t see a fight she can’t win! I’m a walking jinx so let’s see #UFCVegas2— Derek Brunson (@DerekBrunson) April 10, 2021
Mackenzie Dern carries herself with class & is highly skilled . More spotlight on Dern please ! #UFCVegas23— Derek Brunson (@DerekBrunson) April 10, 2021
There’s that damn armbar again. Don’t mess with her jits— Randa Markos (@randamma) April 10, 2021
You will be back mate @NinaAnsaroff Good to see you back in the Octagon ❤— Alex Chambers (@alexchambersmma) April 10, 2021
Daniel Rodriguez edges Mike Perry
That’s toughness you can’t teach. But man, there’s some work to be done there. Rodriguez was on and sharp all day. #UFCVegas23— Aljamain Sterling (@funkmasterMMA) April 10, 2021
Mirrorish match up for here , this was a bad match up for Perry. Rodriguez just a bit faster & hits harder ! #UFCVegas2— Derek Brunson (@DerekBrunson) April 10, 2021
No doubt that’s a UD for D-Rod! Well done!! #UFCVegas23— Nicolas “Lokomotivo” Dalby (@DalbyMMA) April 10, 2021
Perry is just too stiff— Brian BOOM Kelleher (@brianboom135) April 10, 2021
