Brazilian mixed martial arts fans greeted American welterweight fighter Matt Brown by chanting “uh vai morrer, ” translated to “you’re going to die,” during the UFC 198 weigh-ins. Brown responded by introducing the Brazilians to the middle finger of each hand.
Brown also stood on the scales with his back to the crowd, and flipped them off three times in total.
The weigh-ins alone attracted 15,000 fans, setting a new record far beyond the 10,000 that showed up to see the weigh-in for Conor McGregor vs Chad Mendes at UFC 189.
Matt Brown vs Demian Maia will be the final preliminary fight for UFC 198 in Curitiba, Brazil. It’s building up to be a fantastic show.
