The "Hippo" spoke with ringside announcer Brian Stann immediately after the fight and credited his boxing coach for his knockout punch:
"I asked for the fight because we were both coming off one loss and we're both Brazilian jiu-jitsu blackbelts. What better way than to fight in Brazil? I wanted the fight, but everyone underestimated my jiu-jitsu, but today I showed my stand up. Thanks to my boxing coach Steve Rudy — that's all we've done is just don't stand in front of him. Move left, move right and set up the right. That's all we've been doing for three months."
Perosh -- a +375 underdog heading into the fight -- has struggled inside the Ultimate Fighting Championship's (UFC) Octagon since making his debut at UFC 110.
