UFC Orlando tweets: The fighters react to Stephen Thompson’s historic 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.

After countless acrobatic kicks to his dome and body, Holland hung on as long as possible. He was eventually stopped by physics and his round ended with the correct call.

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.
