The UFC welcomed fans back on Saturday night with UFC 261, and things kicked off in wild fashion from the moment the first fight started.

Within two seconds, Liang Na dropped Ariane Carnelossi with a right hand, which ignited a crazy first round of action. In the end, Carnelossi rallied from that early setback and scored a second-round TKO win over Na at Vystar Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, Fla.

In stark contrast to the quiet of the UFC Apex and Fight Island, fans in the building went nuts. The excitement of fans being back combined with safety concerns because of COVID-19 made for some mixed reactions on Twitter.
