Li Jingliang wasn’t planning on running into the crowd following his recent win, but he did.
Yesterday (Nov. 25), Jingliang took on Zak Ottow in the co-main event of UFC Fight Night 122. The action was held inside the Mercedes Benz Arena in Shanghai, China. Jingliang earned a first-round TKO victory.
After the bout, Jingliang ran into the crowd to embrace his wife and daughter. At the post-fight press conference, Jingliang said it was a spur of the moment (via MMAJunkie.com):
“I hadn’t really thought about that in my mind, so it wasn’t planned. But I was just too excited, and I wanted to share that joy with my wife. So that’s what happened.”
