    UFC Fight Island 6 in Tweets: Pros react to Brian Ortega’s dominant win, Jessica Andrade’s impressive flyweight debut

    Two contenders made championship statements on Saturday.

    Brian Ortega—fighting for the first time since a championship fight loss to Max Holloway in December 2018—looked reborn in the UFC Fight Island 6 main event as he outworked “The Korean Zombie” Chan Sung Jung en route to a lopsided unanimous decision win.

    The co-main event saw former strawweight champion Jessica Andrade make history by becoming the first woman to record a win in three divisions in the UFC. Andrade picked up a late first-round TKO against No. 1-ranked flyweight contender Katlyn Chookagian to not only achieve the milestone, but potentially mark herself as the next title challenger at 125 pounds.

    These performances had fighters buzzing on social media and you can check out the best reactions to Saturday’s card below.
