What terrible way for the fight to end -- #UFCVegas21— Neil Magny (@NeilMagny) March 14, 2021
Eye pokes hurt like nobody understands. It should be an automatic DQ.— Sam Alvey (@smilensam) March 14, 2021
Leon is still a beast but fuck bro— Jamahal “Sweet Dreams” Hill (@JamahalH) March 14, 2021
Super bummed for @Leon_edwardsmma too! Obviously not what he wanted. Hopefully they can run it back— Brad Tavares (@BradTavares) March 14, 2021
Maaaan, Leon was looking super slick. Fakes, stance changes, everything looking great. Shit to see it end like that. Hope belal is okay ----— Lando Vannata (@GroovyLando) March 14, 2021

Man... what bummer!— Herbert Burns (@HerbertBurnsMMA) March 14, 2021
What a horrible way for this fight to end.
I feel bad for both guys!#UFCVegas21
Honestly all respect to Belal for taking short notice but Leon was dominating and it didn’t seem like he was about to slow down. Give the man his shot.— Anthony Rocco Martin (@TonyRoccoMartin) March 14, 2021
