UFC strawweight Vanessa Demopoulos had an unforgettable night at the Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif. this past Saturday.
Demopoulos (5:08) kicks off this week’s edition of We Got Next to recap her comeback submission win against Silvana Gomez Juarez at UFC 270, talks getting rocked early and not remembering a pocket of time in the fight, what went through her mind when she got the tap, her memorable post-fight interview with Joe Rogan, her decision to quit exotic dancing prior to the bout, and more.
Pat Downey (31:04) discusses officially making the transition to MMA and signing with Bellator, if there were any other suitors before coming to that decision, wanting a wrestling or grappling match with Khamzat Chimaev, if he thinks Jordan Borroughs will fight in MMA, and his plans to debut sooner rather than later.
Matt Frevola (48:47) recaps his crazy first-round TKO win over Genaro Valdez at UFC 270, talks his belief he should have the most knockdowns in a round record by himself, why he had no issue with Mike Beltran’s stoppage, not getting a bonus and what he said to Sean Shelby after the event, and officially hitting the free agent market.
Finally, Victor Henry (1:09:28) discusses his upset victory over Raoni Barcelos at UFC 270 in his promotional debut, if the fight played out the way he expected it to, being a massive underdog, his message to the media about being more well-versed outside of the UFC, Joe Rogan giving him some shine after the win. and when he hopes to return to the octagon.
