UFC Vegas 70 in Tweets: Fighters react to Brendan Allen’s submission upset of Andre Muniz


Brendan Allen made the most of his short-notice headliner, submitting submission specialist Andre Muniz with short time left in their UFC Vegas 70 rendezvous.

Allen tapped Muniz at 4:25 of Round 3 with a rear-naked choke after a high-amplitude takedown and slick transition to back control, where he cranked until Muniz was forced to quit.

Originally planned for the comain event, Allen & Muniz were promoted when Nikita Kralov (headliner) was unable to fight Ryan Spann because of a food-borne disease.

Here’s what fighters had to say about the UFC Vegas 70 main card.
