‘Nah bro, f*** yous’: Pros react to Amir Albazi’s decision win over Kai Kara-France at UFC Vegas 74

Most of the MMA community – and a fair amount of UFC fighters – left Saturday’s flyweight main event impressed by Amir Albazi in his first five-round bout inside the octagon. But many just didn’t feel like Albazi should’ve gotten his hand raised.

In the headliner of UFC Vegas 74, Albazi was awarded a split decision win over Kara-France in a close battle. Following the win, Albazi called for the next title shot against the winner of the upcoming co-main event of UFC 290 between Brandon Moreno and Alexandre Pantoja.

In the featherweight co-main event bout, Alex Caceres was able to outlast the zombielike toughness of Daniel Pineda — even after being knocked down in the final seconds of the bout — to earn a unanimous decision, which moved “Bruce Leeroy” to 7-1 over his eight most recent outings.

Check out how fellow UFC fighters reacted to those two matchups, along with Jim Miller’s brutal 23-second knockout of Jesse Butler in the lightweight featured bout, Karine Silva’s painful submission win over Ketlen Souza, and more.
