What happened next, made the crowd shout their lungs out. He stole the mic from Joe Rogan, who approached him for his post-fight interview. Then went on to give one of the most memorable and full-of-energy post-fight interviews in the UFC.

He wasn’t pulling any punches when he said, “Let’s go, New York. Make some f*cking noise. Renato, I have to be on the f*cking rankings, man. This is disrespect. I took a fight, a five-round fight on five days’ notice. Five days’ notice. I was f*cking drinking beer and eating steaks in Brazil. They called me and I came here.
