Fighters gave their reaction following the bout, but what about the Pulse of MMA? Here are some of the raw, unfiltered reactions from MMA fans to the UFC Vegas 43 main event’s outcome.
That sucks for miesha when all these interviews come out saying how she can beat nunes and that if Rhonda were to come out of retirement and fight her the outcome would be different and she loses … she’s still one of my favs tho

I’m with you man. I think judging has too much opinion and should lean on the numbers more. I mean look at the 30-27 call earlier in the night…wtf?

49-46 Ketlen, not anywhere near as close as Twitter is claiming lol

To me it was the last round that made the difference… But Vieira didn’t look good or dominant at all… Tate was pressuring all the time & controlling the pace but Vieira looked like she was on a different weight class next to Tate

That’s the point of fighting, use your advantages. Tate couldn’t figure out how to negate the reach?
Vieira did nothing to be aggressive…what the hell happened to Tate’s face?

Vieira won but doesn’t have that killer instinct imo

Viera needs to start listening to her corner. Even with a win if she had push this fight by using her length and power this could easily been a TKO. Respect for Miesha, she showed her knowledge of the game and kept a close fight. #MMA #UFCVegas43

Missed this fight but Tate is 35 and in a sport(women’s MMA) that has evolved so rapidly in the past 5-6 years. She was a pioneer of women’s MMA but she needs to stay retired. The fans will always respect her
