UFC Vegas 51 in tweets: Fighters react to Belal Muhammad triumph, controversial Borralho-Omargadzhiev ending


Belal Muhammad just keeps winning and the MMA world has taken notice.

Make it eight straight fights without a loss for Muhammad, who defeated Vicente Luque by unanimous decision in the main event of UFC Vegas 51 on Saturday. The win was even sweeter for Muhammad as he avenged a November 2016 loss to Luque, which remains the only time that Muhammad has been stopped.

Muhammad — The No. 6 welterweight in MMA Fighting’s Global Rankings who will jump up at least one spot ahead of Luque after Saturday’s result — used a wrestling-heavy attack to defuse the dangerous Luque and many of his peers applauded him for perfectly executing his game plan.
