The introduction of the fighters before they step inside the Octagon not only builds up the hype but also provides the fighters with a chance to interact with their fans. The walkout is the only moment when the fighters are closest to the fans. Without a doubt, many fans offer their hands for a high-five or a cool fist bump. Furthermore, some fans also offer drinks to their favorite warriors. 

Recently, during the events of UFC Fight Night 221 at The Virgin Hotels, Las Vegas, a UFC warrior had an accident that resulted in spilled drinks. As Lukasz Brzeski was walking towards the cage, giving high-fives to the fans, one of the fans raised a glass of beer for the fighter. However, the fighter accidentally slapped the drink, as well. As the video found its way to social media, the fans went into a frenzy and believed that it was the reason why he lost the match.
