Emily Whitmire picked up her first victory inside of the octagon on Saturday night at UFC 226 in Las Vegas, but it was an interaction following the fight that stole the show. Whitmire had her hand raised in victory before flipping the double-bird to her teammate, jiu jitsu ace Vinny Magalhaes.
Whitmire was unhappy that Magalhaes decided to corner her opponent, Jamie Moyle, for the fight, and unloaded during her post-fight interview with UFC commentator Joe Rogan.
“Vinny is supposed to be my teammate,” Whitmire said. “He said he wasn’t cornering against me five times. Today I showed up, saw him getting off the bus, didn’t message me or anything, so he can go f*** himself.”
