Who the fuck would throw an illegal knee!!!!— michael (@bisping) March 7, 2021
Ok that’s too much ----— KAMARU USMAN (@USMAN84kg) March 7, 2021
That was very illegal, it doesn’t get much worse than that. Yan was already flirting with danger by throwing those axe kicks when Aljo was down. The doctors made the right call, you can’t let the fighter make the decision to continue after taking a shot like that. #UFC259— Michael Chiesa (@MikeMav22) March 7, 2021
Aljamain came in great shape, he fought forward every second of that fight, not his fault he got illegally kneed. Congratulations Champion, you did it— BONY (@JonnyBones) March 7, 2021
He better not take that belt with him...— Cody Garbrandt (@Cody_Nolove) March 7, 2021
Why the fuck interview him, if he is so concussed ??— Cody Garbrandt (@Cody_Nolove) March 7, 2021
They have to run this back!!#UFC259— Francis Ngannou (@francis_ngannou) March 7, 2021
