UFC 253 in Tweets: Pros react to Israel Adesanya’s flawless victory, ‘Polish Power’ of Jan Blachowicz

The highly anticipated – and highly significant – middleweight title fight between champ Israel Adesanya and Paulo Costa was certainly exciting – but not anywhere near as competitive as expected.

Adesanya delivered a master class in striking performance, dismantling Costa with kicks before turning up the tempo in the second round and landing a punch that floored the Brazilian and set up a second-round TKO.

In the co-headliner, Jan Blachowicz captured the light heavyweight title left vacant by Jon Jones with a dominant win over Dominick Reyes. One-time title challenger Reyes never got out of second gear and wound up getting caught by Blachowicz in the second round, leading to a TKO that delivered the title to the Polish vet. Immediately afterward, Blachowicz called out Jones, who’s expected to move up to heavyweight.

Here’s what pros had to say about UFC 253.
