UFC Vegas 52 in Tweets: Fighters react to slick submissions from Jessica Andrade, Claudio Puelles


At UFC Vegas 52, former champ Jessica Andrade returned to the strawweight division with another highlight-reel performance, submitting Amanda Lemos with the first-ever standing arm-triangle in the octagon.

Andrade lost height and reached to Lemos, and was unable to keep up with Lemos’s length early in the fight. But her unbelievable strength allowed her to grab and hold on until she heard her opponent gurgle, then tap out at the 3:13 mark of the opening frame in Saturday’s headliner at UFC APEX in Las Vegas.

This was not the only impressive submission. Claudio Puelles, a co-main event fighter in UFC 3, submitted by armbar to Clay Guida.

Here’s what fighters had to say about the UFC Vegas 52 main card.
