  • Adrian Yanez knocked the living lights out of Tony Kelley at UFC Austin
  • The KO win got a number of fighters taking their thoughts to social media

Adrian Yanez extended his unbeaten record to 5-0 after a sensational first-round KO victory over Tony Kelley at UFC Austin. Even more interesting, Yanez’s fellow fighters celebrated with him.


For those who might have missed it, Kelley is on the spot coming in at UFC Austin following his offensive comments about Brazilians at UFC Vegas 54. Kelley later addressed the issue and stressed that he got “nothing against Brazilians” but he upped the ante once again by flipping the bird before his bantamweight fight with Yanez.

Unfortunately for “Primetime,” Yanez knocked him out early in the fight. The American gave Kelley the middle finger while he was down as he felt his opponent deserved it. What happened next was something even more epic.

Fighters were ecstatic

As expected, Brazilian fighters such as Ariane Carnelossi and Gilbert Burns were thrilled with Carnelossi even tweeting “shut up the bullsh*t talker.”

Even non-Brazilian fighters were happy to have witnessed Yanez beat Kelley and also took their thoughts on social media.

This is Kelly’s first defeat as a professional fighter, having been KO’d by Yanez at UFC Austin. In addition to reflecting on the mistakes he made during the fight, Primetime may also want to think about being extra careful with his remarks and behavior in the future.
