Adrian Yanez reveals the motivation behind the knockout: The American Mixed martial artist Yanez pulled a massive showdown inside the octagon on UFC Austin.

He knocked down his opponent, Tony Kelly, in the first round. The bantamweight bout had a different expectation from the audience this time.

Yanez being a black belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu, stands at the rank of 15 in the division, while his knockout was motivated both audience and also by the fighting organization.

Prior to the match, Kelly had made a racist statement to his girlfriend which has embarked outrage around the combat spectrum

Adrian Yanez said, “It’s an awesome moment for me,” .“Man, that was a lot of emotion. That was a lot of raw emotion, of me just wanting to f*** that guy up, man. I don’t like that guy. I genuinely don’t like that guy, man. Not even just because of the comments he said, 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 [people] be like, ‘F*** that guy up. Beat the s*** out of him.’ And there’s been so many thank yous after me whooping him that everybody’s like, ‘Thank you, man, f***.’ Those are the nicest people in the world, too, man, so it means a little bit more. It was a little bit more satisfying.”

“Right now he’s trying to talk s*** to me, he’s trying to goad me out into getting a rematch and I just told my managers, bro, if they are about making that rematch, I would 100 percent take it because I don’t mind another bonus at all,” Yanez said. “He’s talking s*** so I’m happy about it, man. I’m under his skin even after the fight.

“He talked s*** at the ceremonial weigh-ins, he talked s*** like right after we were backstage and he got mad when I told him I’m gonna knock him out, he walked off and all that stuff. Even during the fight, he was starting to talk s***. Hit him with the check hook, he stopped talking (laughs). Then I stopped him and even then afterward, now, he’s still talking. Of course, you’re still talking, I took your money, I KO’d you and now you’re a meme (laughs). Of course, you’re gonna talk, you’re pissed off.”
