Head of UFC Brazil labels UFC Fight Night 77 the 'best show in MMA history'

What the?

HIGHLIGHTS! Thomas Almeida, Vitor Belfort Steal Sao Paulo Show With Killer KOs!

Giovanni Decker might want to pump the brakes on his Dana White-isms.

The new head of UFC Brazil got a bit carried away during the UFC Fight Night 77 post-fight press conference, labeling the FOX Sports 1-televised event -- which went down last night (Sat., Nov. 7, 2015) in Sao Paulo, Brazil -- the best event in not only Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) history, but mixed martial arts (MMA) overall.

No, seriously.

We can hardly blame Decker for getting overly-excited, as the event did have plenty of high-octane and entertaining scraps.

Among them included Vitor Belfort's first-round knock out of Dan Henderson (see it) which put an end to their storied rivalry. Plus, Thomas Almeida proved once again why everyone's aboard his wagon, as he knocked out Anthony Birchack in devastating fashion (relive it here).

Also, Alex Oliveira, Glover Teixeira and Thiago Tavares all earned impressive finishes in their respective fights. When it was all said and done, there were a total of eight finishes on the night.

But calling the the event the G.O.A.T may be IS far fetched.

Right, Dana?
