UFC 287 in Tweets: Fighters react to Israel Adesanya’s revenge knockout of Alex Pereira

Israel Adesanya avenged his UFC title loss to Alex Pereira in the biggest way possible, stopping the Brazilian champ to reclaim the belt at UFC 287.

Adesanya played possum against the fence, taking hard shots to the body against Pereira, before he snuck in a pair of right hands that sent his three-time foe to the canvas, out cold.

The win came just five months after Adesanya was stopped in the fifth round of a fight he was winning against Pereira, who twice beat him in the kickboxing ring.

Here’s what fighters had to say about the UFC 287 main card including Adesanya’s win over Pereira.
