UFC on FOX 25 in Tweets: Pros react to Chris Weidman submitting Kelvin Gastelum, more

Long Island fighters may have had an up-and-down night at UFC on FOX 25, but the home team pulled through when it mattered most.

Staring down the barrel of a three-fight losing streak, former UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman gutted out one of the most important wins of his career on Saturday night, overcoming an early knockdown to submit Kelvin Gastelum with a third-round arm triangle and pick up his first victory since May 2015.

See how the pros reacted to Weidman’s win below, plus the best of the rest from a bloody night at UFC on FOX 25.

Had to have been nice for Weidman to win in his hometown after dealing with a bit of bad luck in NY. He’s back! #UFCLongIsland #UFConFox

— Kenny Florian (@kennyflorian) July 23, 2017

Mr. Weidman is going to get after it tonight. The old man is pumped. #UFCLONGISLAND

I really like these both fighters @ChrisWeidmanUFC and @KelvinGastelum but Weidman needed this victory happy for him #UFCLongIsalnd

— GILBERT BURNS (@GilbertDurinho) July 23, 2017

Weidman still a beast. That whole “you are only as good as your last fight” fools us sometimes #UFCLONGISLAND

— Sean O’Connell (@realOCsports) July 23, 2017

Good fight for weidman.

— Brad Tavares (@BradTavares) July 23, 2017

That a boy @ChrisWeidmanUFC !!!! Great performance!!! #UFCLongIsalnd

— Chris Camozzi (@ChrisCamozzi) July 23, 2017

Weidman looks like Wediman of old. Great bounce back from 0-3 and to do it in his hometown thats got to feel amazing.

— Will Brooks (@ILLxWillBrooks) July 23, 2017

Weidman somehow looks younger every time I watch him fight #UFClongisland

— Leslie Smith (@LeslieSmith_GF) July 23, 2017

Great win by @ChrisWeidmanUFC #UFCLongIsalnd back in the winning column.

— JIMI MANUWA (@POSTERBOYJM) July 23, 2017

Good fight from @KelvinGastelum. @ChrisWeidmanUFC was to big for him on top. KG got hands. Butterfly guard would’ve been useful #SafeWin

— Platinum Mike Perry (@PlatinumPerry) July 23, 2017

Say my name bitch! @ChrisWeidmanUFC

DARREN ELKINS DEF. DENNIS BERMUDEZ

2 rounds to Elkins #UFCLongIsland

— Arnold billy allen (@Arnoldbfa) July 23, 2017

I have Elkins winning that fight

— Sean O’Connell (@realOCsports) July 23, 2017

If it were up to me I give that fight to Bermudez. He pushed the pace, was the obvious aggressor, landed the better shots. But that’s me

— Brad Tavares (@BradTavares) July 23, 2017

Elkins is goat #UFCLongIsland

— Belal muhammad (@bullyb170) July 23, 2017

WTF is going on?! #UFCLongIsland

— Aljamain Sterling (@FunkMaster_UFC) July 23, 2017

Really fair judging tonight#ufconfox25

— Louis Smolka (@LASTSAMURAIUFC) July 23, 2017

The DAMAGE!!

— James Vick (@JamesVickMMA) July 23, 2017

Not mad Elkins got the nod. Very close fight. This card has been really good! #UFCLongIsland

— Brad Tavares (@BradTavares) July 23, 2017

Is it natural for ppl to look like they were beat with a shovel and get the win? I understand the fights still looked close, but LOOK

— Aljamain Sterling (@FunkMaster_UFC) July 23, 2017

Congrats to Darren Elkins on the W! @UFC_CA #UFCLongIsland pic.twitter.com/DtptIqUvvh

PATRICK CUMMINS DEF. GIAN VILLANTE

How nice of big Jon to give a time out for a head butt! Those can change things!

— Michael Johnson (@FollowTheMenace) July 23, 2017

Do you than Cummins tells people that he is Tom Hardy growing a mustache for a film role?

— Sean O’Connell (@realOCsports) July 23, 2017

Villante please throw just 1 right uppercut PLEASE!!!

— James Vick (@JamesVickMMA) July 23, 2017

YAYYY!!!! @OfficialDurkin with the W!

— KailinCurran (@KailinCurran) July 23, 2017

Cummins with the split. I thought it was going to be a UD. #UFCLongIsland

— Tatiana Suarez (@TSPMMA115) July 23, 2017

How was that a split decision? Mma scoring needs to be fixed

— Sam Alvey (@smilensam) July 23, 2017

Good job Pat! #UFCLongIsalnd

— Ian McCall (@Unclecreepymma) July 23, 2017

WOOOOOWWW!!! HOW?! #UFCLongIsland

— Corey Anderson UFC (@CoreyA_MMA) July 23, 2017

Def thought @GPVillante won that fight. #UFCLongIsland

— Chris Camozzi (@ChrisCamozzi) July 23, 2017

Valante is a bum. They tried to feed him and he still couldn’t win

— Tatiana Suarez (@TSPMMA115) July 23, 2017

— Brad Tavares (@BradTavares) July 23, 2017

30-26? These judges are trash #ufclongisland

— Belal muhammad (@bullyb170) July 23, 2017

20 wins in a row is unreal. Give the man a shot . #UFCLONGISLAND

— Sean O’Connell (@realOCsports) July 23, 2017
