Sure, it wasn’t the title fight that Werdum-Velasquez would have been. But the main event bout between former UFC Welterweight champion Johny Hendricks and Stephen Thompson was a big bout to both fighters. Thompson was looking to move up the rankings while Hendricks was looking to get another shot at Robbie Lawler. Unexpectedly (or was it?), Thompson scored a first round KO win over Big Rigg that surprised many of us.
That upset drew various reactions from social media.

Still there were those like T.J. Grant who sent their thoughts to Hendricks:
That was one heck of a clean performance by wonderboy. Johnny will learn and evolve from this

And then there was Tito Ortiz, the Huntington Beach Bad Boy and former UFC Light Heavyweight champion who now fights for Bellator. He’s one guy who has his way with his words and he slayed Stephen Thompson on Twitter.
