The worlds of mixed martial arts and boxing clash often, but it usually is not in a positive manner. The debate of which combat sport is superior takes center stage, but it’s not always negative!
UFC fighters took to social media on Saturday night when they watched Gennady Golovkin dominate in Madison Square Garden last night! “GGG” took the technical knockout victory in the eighth round when the referee decided David Lemieux took one shot too many. Check out what everybody from Dustin Poirier to Ronda Rousey had to say about his performance. Hell, even Dana White gave him some love!

GGG wins when he wants to. Always starts slow and cuts them in half half way through. #GGGLemieux
