Mark Zuckerberg’s presence at UFC Vegas 61 was difficult to ignore.

The Facebook czar was omnipresent figure on Saturday at the UFC APEX, as the UFC shut down the venue to the public with the exception of Zuckerberg and his cohorts, ultimately giving them a private show headlined by Yan Xiaonan’s narrow majority decision win over Mackenzie Dern.

The situation prompted quite a stir on social media, drawing both criticism, curiosity, and amusement from many within the MMA community. See how fighters reacted to Zuckerberg’s UFC APEX takeover below.
