After submitting her opponent in the first round with an armbar, Demopolous gave her victory interview to the famous UFC commentator Joe Rogan. After finishing her interview, she jumped into Rogan’s arms, creating an interesting scenario for the viewers.

UFC booked her next fight for June 25, 2022, at UFC Fight Night at the UFC Apex, Las Vegas. Demopoulos’ fans are eagerly waiting for her to showcase her fighting skills in the Octagon once again. In a recent interview, she talked about her previous celebration with Joe Rogan.

Famous UFC Journalist Helen Yee asked ‘Lil Monster,’ “The way you jumped into Joe Rogan I mean is that kind of your new like celebration now moving forward like a win at the Apex you’ll be jumping into whoever’s announcing you in their arms.

“Michael Bisping, you better be aware man, lookout, be ready, be ready. Don’t drop me, homie. Yeah, I mean it’s got to be a thing right, I don’t know. It was like so at the moment that like it just felt right, but we’ll see, we’ll see what happens,” she replied.

Yee followed up, “Did you expect for it to be so easy so effortless but graceful?” Vanessa Demopoulos excitedly responded, “Oh man, yeah I mean Joe’s a strong guy you know like we’re always seeing him lifting weights and the man’s a black belt in Jiu-Jitsu, so like he just… And I’m not that big of a person I’m kind of little you know it was nice, it was perfect.”

It is unlikely that Joe Rogan will announce the fights on UFC Fight Night. Hence, it seems Michael Bisping will have to carry Vanessa Demopoulos if she wins over Jinh Yu Frey.
