MMA community reacts to Marcin Tybura's exciting submission of Tai Tuivasa at UFC Fight Night 239

Tai Tuivasa’s downward spiral continued on Saturday when Marcin Tybura handed him a fourth consecutive defeat in the UFC Fight Night 239 main event.

Tybura (25-8 MMA, 12-7 UFC) bounced back from his knockout loss to Tom Aspinall with a first-round submission win over Tuivasa (15-7 MMA, 8-7 UFC) in the heavyweight headliner, which took place at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas.

Tai Tuivasa drew blood early with a hard standing elbow that gashed Tybura’s forehead. Relatively unfazed, Tybura stood for a few more exchanges. He ducked under a Tuivasa combination and grabbed a double leg. Though Tuivasa initially defended successfully, Tybura eventually muscled him down.

Once on the canvas, Tybura moved from half guard to back mount and landed ground-and-pound all the way. Tybura wrapped his arm under Tuivasa’s neck. There was a brief struggle as Tai Tuivasa attempted not to slip under, but eventually his consciousness evaporated. A few snores later, referee Herb Dean intervened and the fight was over.
