UFC Orlando in Tweets: Fighters react to Stephen Thompson’s vintage win over Kevin Holland

At 39, Stephen Thompson is still beating younger fighters, as Kevin Holland can attest after going four rounds with the two-time welterweight title challenger at UFC Orlando.

Holland hung in as long as he could after taking dozens of acrobatic kicks off his body and dome. Eventually, physics intervened and he was no longer able to continue, as his corner correctly called at the end of the fourth round.

A hand injury set the end in motion for Holland, but for Thompson, it was another reminder that he’s still one heck of a dangerous fighter at 170 pounds. His colleagues gave him appropriate props on Twitter.

Here’s what fighters had to say about the UFC Orlando main card.
