Looks like Johnny Walker is trying to set up a big shot behind the front kick. #UFCVegas38

Scott Fontana

R1 10-9 Walker. Tepid round, but he was more active/landed more frequently. #UFCVegas38

Yves Edwards

That first round was way more wack than I expected.

These guys are fighting like they’ve lost a combined five of their last six.

Dan Tom

Good notes on Santos’ stance by Din Thomas on broadcast, which makes sense considering that his left leg suffered the bulk of the damage in the Jones fight #UFCVegas38

Niall McGrath

Johnny Walker so much more cautious and composed than we’ve ever seen him before, far more cerebral but can’t blame him fighting Thiago Santos #UFCVegas38

The Thiago Santos body kick sounds like a ton of bricks hitting Walker @ufc

If Thiago Santos and Johnny Walker goes to a decision on the same night that Niko Price vs. Alex Oliveira went to a decision….

The MMA Gods will have to answer for their crimes.#UFCVegas38

Bloody Elbow

Body kick from Santos. Walker with a kick to the knee. Low kicks from Walker, and a body kick. High kick from Santos just skims Walker. Front kick from Walker, and another. Walker with a quick counter right. Santos with a counter left as Walker pushes forward. #UFCVegas38

— Bloody Elbow (@BloodyElbow) October 3, 2021

E. Spencer Kyte

Measured, patient Johnny Walker isn’t as dangerous as wild lunatic Johnny Walker. #UFCVegas38

Andrea Hale

Santos and Walker have been playing a high powered chess match and it’s about time one of them take the board and smash it over their opponent’s head. #UFCVegas38

Throw a flying knee, do a cartwheel kick, spinning elbow, do some fucking thing! #UFCVegas38

Ben Fowlkes

You guys? I’m getting the sense that Daniel Cormier is not too impressed with this fight so far.

Corey Anderson hits harder than Thiago Santos: confirmed.

Fight Ghost

48-47 Thiago Santos -Kavanaugh did Walker a HUGE disservice telling him he was UP heading into the 5th. TERRIBLE coaching. #UFCVegas38

Marreta and Walker did not go to hell after all

— Guilherme Cruz (@guicruzzz) October 3, 2021

Johnny Walker threw about 250 feints and 12 strikes the entire fight. Awful.

— Matt Weibel (@matt_frm) October 3, 2021

Bruno Massami

Thiago Santos told this is his last bout of his contract. And ask Dana and Mick Maynard a New deal. #UFCVegas38
