Last night, the UFC returned to Sydney, Australia, with an exciting 13-fight card. In the main event of this card, which happened to clock as the longest card in UFC history, former UFC heavyweight champion Fabricio Werdum stepped into the cage with rising Polish contender Marcin Tybura. Despite a strong effort from Tybura, the much more experienced Werdum ultimately came out on top, capturing a unanimous decision win after five rounds of action.
Unsurprisingly, this fun, five round affair generated some interesting reactions from the MMA community. Without further ado, here are some of the best reactions from Fabricio Werdum and Marcin Tybura’s fellow fighters:
I’m shocked @FabricioWerdum has not cut Tybura one time with all those high knees

With this win, Fabricio Werdum extended his win-streak to two-straight, as he recently took out another rising contender in Walt Harris. Prior to these wins, he lost a narrow decision to Alistair Overeem, picked up a decision over Travis Browne, and lost by knockout to Stipe Miocic.
For Marcin Tybura, meanwhile, this win derails a three-fight streak composed of wins over Andrei Arlovski, Luis Henrique, and Victor Pesta.
