community news, UFC 216 in Tweets: Pros react to Tony Ferguson vs. Kevin Lee, Demetrious Johnson’s unbelievable submission

Tony Ferguson’s long quest to gold is complete — albeit of the interim variety — and Demetrious Johnson is the new UFC king. While UFC 216 may have flown under the radar for a pay-per-view, the fights that mattered most delivered in spades.

Ferguson submitted Kevin Lee with a third-round triangle choke to capture the interim UFC lightweight championship on Saturday night at the T-Mobile Arena, and Johnson at last broke Anderson Silva’s consecutive title defense record with one of the greatest, most creative finishes in UFC history, tapping out Ray Borg with a suplex-to-armbar sequence that will be replayed into infinity. Check out reaction to the two brilliant performances below, plus the best of the rest from a memorable night at UFC 216.
