See how the MMA community reacted to Johnny Walker starting off the main card of UFC 283 by clocking Paul Craig with hard shots en route to a first-round finish.
After some trading by both men during the first round, things quickly came to an end in a few minutes. Walker landed a body kick and followed it up with several right hands. Craig grabbed the leg, intending to go for a takedown, but that resulted in Walker blasting him with several hammerfists, rocking Craig further until the referee stepped in.
Walker has now won back-to-back fights for the first time since 2019.
UFC 283: Twitter reacts to Johnny Walker vs. Paul Craig
After making statements with four straight wins to start his UFC career between 2018 and 2019, Walker’s UFC future was in great question after losing four of his next five fights. He has since rebounded now with this victory after submitting Ion Cutelaba at UFC 279 in September.
Craig, meanwhile, has now lost two straight (he dropped a unanimous decision to Volkan Oezdemir in July) after a six-fight unbeaten stint.
