Do you still want to be a f*cking fighter?

Johnny Case stayed undefeated inside the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Octagon after defeating Yan Cabral via unanimous decision at last night's (Sat. Nov. 7, 2015) UFC Fight Night 77 even in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

But, it came at a hefty price.

The 26-year old standout revealed to the media that he suffered a broke left thumb and broken left foot during his lightweight bout. He also banged up his shin pretty good.

But, as Case revealed, the victory -- which was his twelve in a row -- helps ease the pain.

As far as who he'd like to face next, Case didn't have anyone specifically in mind, but says he wouldn't be opposed to stop the Sage Northcutt hype train before it picks up further steam.

"Yeah, I just think it would be fun to derail the hype train," said Case.

Northcutt will next face fellow 155-pound rising star Cody Pfister at the upcoming UFC Fight Night 80 mixed martial arts (MMA) event on UFC Fight Pass, scheduled for Dec. 10, 2015 inside Chelsea at The Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas, Nevada.
