Bellator 266 in Tweets: Pros react to Phil Davis’ win over Yoel Romero

But after 15 minutes of grueling action, it was Davis’ wrestling that proved to be the deciding factor en route to a split decision.

Here’s how the rest of his fellow fighters reacted to his victory inside the SAP Center in San Jose, Calif.
