UFC Vegas 21 in Tweets: Fighters react to Belal Muhammad eye poke, no-decision vs. Leon Edwards

A pivotal welterweight fight between Leon Edwards and Belal Muhammad at UFC Vegas 21 was the second bout on Saturday’s event to end in a no-decision after a foul.

Referee Herb Dean waved off the bout at the 0:18 mark of the second round, shortly after Muhammed took a nasty eyepoke that sent him to the canvas in pain. The unfortunate ending came five bouts after the event’s main card opener ended in a no-decision when Eryk Anders landed an illegal knee to the head of a grounded Darren Stewart. Including the illegal knee from Petr Yan that crowned Aljamain Sterling the new bantamweight champion at UFC 259, it was the third octagon bout to end with a foul in one week.

Here’s what Twitter had to say about the UFC Vegas 21 headliner and other main card bouts.
