UFC Vegas 70 in Tweets: Fighters react to Brendan Allen’s submission upset of Andre Muniz

Brendan Allen made the most of his short-notice headliner, submitting submission specialist Andre Muniz with short time left in their UFC Vegas 70 rendezvous.

Allen tapped Muniz at 4:25 of Round 3 with a rear-naked choke after a high-amplitude takedown and slick transition to back control, where he cranked until Muniz was forced to quit.

Originally scheduled for the co-main event, Allen and Muniz got a promotion when headliner Nikita Krylov was ruled out of a fight with Ryan Spann due to a reported food-borne illness.

Here’s what fighters had to say about the UFC Vegas 70 main card.
