Adrian Yanez just faced Tony Kelly at UFC Fight Night: Kattar vs Emmett and Yanez just kept what he promised. The fight between Kelly and Yanez had a lot of groundwork due to Kelly’s controversial comments about a Brazilian fighter.

A month ago, Kelly stood on the corner of UFC flyweight fighter Andrea Lee as she fought Viviane Araújo. During the fight, in the middle of the rounds, Kelly was caught by a microphone saying foul and racist words towards Araújo and her indigenous people. He said :

“They will. they are dirty f Brazilian. They go to fcheat like that.”

After the fighter was criticized by many fighters for using such words against Brazilians. Yanez also jumped into the controversy, claiming that he would punch Kelly the next time they met in the octagon. Yanez kept his word and absolutely destroyed Kelly. Yanez dropped Kelly with a barrage of hooks in the third minute of the very first round. The referee stopped the fight and Yanez was declared the winner via TKO.

After knocking Kelly down, Yanez continued to flip middle fingers at the fighter in the heat of the moment.

Popular Twitter MMA meme page The People’s MMA jokingly snapped a still from that moment and captioned it “Adrian really hates that referee.”

Yanez noticed the meme and responded by mentioning that he likes referee Kerry a lot as he was in most of his fights.

“I actually have a lot of love for Kerry who refffed a lot of my fights in Texas 🤠👊🏼.” wrote Adrian on his official twitter handle.

Before Kelly got into the fight, she flipped the entire arena and this may have been why Yanez did that.

After the fight, Yanez also revealed that Kelly tried to badmouth him during the fight.

“Honestly, it was cool, calm and collected for me. He started messing with me mid-fight and I said I’ll get you for those words.
