Boxing superstars Canelo Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin battled it out inside the squared circle once again over the weekend. Now UFC fighters have come forward to offer their thoughts on the title fight.
Alvarez and “GGG” faced off once before. Back in 2017, the two world-class pugilists went the distance in what would ultimately become a highly controversial majority draw. The rematch scheduled for May 5, 2018 was postponed after Alvarez failed a drug test.
Having finally traded shots on Sept. 15, Alvarez ultimately earned the unified middleweight championship. Check out what many UFC fighters thought of the performance within the social media posts provided below.

Canelo takes the majority decision. He pressed forward and worked his left hook to the head and to the body. Close fight. Not a robbery #gggcanelo2
