Paul Craig and Belal Muhammad scored wins at UFC 263. On Twitter, pro fighters reacted to the fights.

To open the UFC 263 main card in painful fashion, light heavyweight Paul Craig took Jamahal Hill’s arm with a nasty armbar that most likely resulted in a fracture. Afterwards, Belal Muhammad showed great takedown defense and outpointed seasoned veteran Demian Maia to score a unanimous decision win. On Twitter, pro fighters reacted to both bouts.

Belal Muhammad vs. Demian Maia

For the record @demianmaia is the greatest BJJ practitioner in MMA in my opinion #UFC263

They keep talking about who Nick Diaz Should fight, when the obvious answer is Damien Mia.

It’s crazy how the blueprint to beat Miami is so obvious but so many people have a hard time making it work. @bullyb170 is making it look not easy but like he’s been drilling it for years.
