It was an extremely satisfying end to the fight for the millions of Brazilian fans who are with Yanez in that fight. That one fight made Yanez a superstar with many followers who are waiting for his next fight.

He added, “I don’t like that guy. I genuinely don’t like that guy, man. Not even just because of the comments he said, the but stuff leading up, and I heard a lot of stuff about him. It’s a different thing whenever I’m going through the hallways and the UFC staff is telling me to f*** him up.”

“That was the first guy I’ve had be like, ‘F**k that guy up. Beat the s**t out of him.’ And there’s been so many thank yous after me whooping him that everybody’s like, ‘Thank you, man, f**k.’ Those are the nicest people in the world, too, man, so it means a little bit more.
