The long-awaited trilogy fight between reigning champion Tyson Fury and former champion Deontay Wilder had all combat sports fans excited. That also includes UFC fighters, who were watching the action at the T-Mobile Arena.
In his first match in 2018, the fight held in Los Angeles ended in a draw. Just over a year and a half later, Tyson Fury managed to win over Deontay Wilder. On that occasion, ‘The Gypsy King’ won by TKO in the seventh round, after the corner of ‘The Bronze Bomber’ threw in the towel.
This time around, the trilogy came to an end after just over 10 action-packed rounds. Fury would get a spectacular KO in the eleventh round. These were the reactions of some UFC fighters.

How tough is Wilder though! Was KOd yes. But to be wobbled that many times before the end and still be on his feet, impressive! #FuryWilderIII
