Used to maintaining a cold and calculating posture, Alex Poatán surprised many fans by celebrating victory in an unusual way after knocking out Jamahal hill No. UFC 300. Still in the octagon, the Brazilian performed a 'meme' created by Khaby Lame and explained what led him to provoke his rival even after the fight had ended.

“There it was something I thought about, I spoke to my team that if the knockout happened, of course I had in mind to fight for five rounds, but if the knockout happened I would do that. He said he respected me one day, the next day he lacked respect and everyone knows my attitude in the octagon, I always respect my opponents because I know how difficult it is to be up there and do that job. He disrespected me, it was the least I could do”, declared Poatan in a press conference after the fight.
