UFC VIDEO: Fighter Goes Viral After Twerking Inside The Octagon Following Victory

Fans got more than they bargained for at UFC Vegas 82.

One UFC fighter decided that twerking was the best way to celebrate a hard-fought win, and she has gone viral for it.

During the UFC Vegas 82 prelims, Ailín Pérez went one-on-one with Lucie Pudilová. Pérez was in control during rounds one and two, but the gas tank appeared to be an issue in the final stanza. Pérez avoided Pudilová's comeback attempt and emerged victorious via unanimous decision with scores of 29-27, 29-28, and 29-28.

Pérez wasn't just satisfied with having her hand raised, however.

Instead of a routine post-fight celebration, Ailín Pérez got into her entertainment side. She had a full-on twerk celebration on display inside the Octagon.

"Flona" has now won two in a row and is 2-1 under the UFC banner. While there is some room for improvement for the 29-year-old, Pérez now sees her pro MMA record improve to 9-2.

How far Pérez can take things remains to be seen. One thing's for sure, she certainly has more eyeballs on her following her UFC Vegas 82 post-fight celebration.
