UFC Fight Night: Brunson v ShahbazyanPhoto by Chris Unger/Zuffa LLC via Getty Images

After a month of holding events on Fight Island, the UFC’s return to Las Vegas is officially in the books

With a myriad of last minute fight changes entering the event, fight fans were ready for a night of action. While the earlier fights proved to be a slow affair, the main card picked up in violent fashion, culminating in Derek Brunson’s violent TKO win over the previously undefeated Edmen Shahbazyan.

Below is how fighters reacted to the entire night of action inside the UFC Apex.


Derek Brunson finishes Edmen Shahbazyan

Brunson looked good, in great shape. Smart first round, took over in 2nd and then got the finish. What a performance. @DerekBrunson should be proud. Head up @edmenshahbazyan what a great night of fights.

— Daniel Cormier (@dc_mma) August 2, 2020

Brunson showed up tn in a big way. For me, I feel the UFC has him as a gate keeper, but he’s a dangerous and durable one. Great fight from both men. Shabahzyan will be back. He’s very young. #ItsMyBirthdayBish #UFCVegas5

— Aljamain Sterling (@funkmasterMMA) August 2, 2020

Dean took too long to stop that fight #Ufc

— Rafael dos Anjos (@RdosAnjosMMA) August 2, 2020

Thank you Herb! That man is young and has a promising career ahead of him. Thank you for stopping any further damage. #DrunkTweets #ItsMyBirthdayBish #UFCVegas5

— Aljamain Sterling (@funkmasterMMA) August 2, 2020

Wow so happy for my guy @DerekBrunson congrats bro @henrihooft @MmaSanford #UFCVegas5

Great work of herb dean #UFCVegas5

— Renato Moicano UFC (@moicanoufc) August 2, 2020

Brunson broke him! Wow! #UFCVegas5

— Julian marquez (@JMarquezMMA) August 2, 2020

That was a good stoppage by herb imo, brunsen got right back on top to a dominant position, on top of an exhausted shabazyan. That had the potential to take years off of the kids career

— Louis Smolka (@LASTSAMURAIUFC) August 2, 2020

incredible refereeing job by Herb. Gave him the chance to get out of the first round, had the doctors check him out before the second and didn’t let him take more than a couple punches. Let him have his chance and then kept him safe at the very end. @ufc #ufcvegas

— Devin Powell (@DevinPowellMMA) August 2, 2020

Solid stoppage, and big finish from @DerekBrunson. Amazing performance. #UFCVegas5

— Mike Jackson, Esq. (@TheTruthJackson) August 2, 2020
