Last Saturday, we watched UFC 293 in Sydney, which generated a lot of attention because there were many attractive fights. Of course, in addition to the fight for the title between Strickland and Adesanya, one fight caused a lot of attention because of the harsh words at the press conference before the fight.

Tyson Pedro (10-4 MMA, 6-4 UFC) fought Anton Turkalj (8-3 MMA, 0-3 UFC). Anton Turkalj explained the origin of his nickname "The Pleasure man" in an extremely cheeky way. He said that you should ask Tyson Pedro's wife how he got that nickname.

Tyson Pedro defeated Turkalj, surely this victory was even more dear to him for personal reasons, and because of the terrible and unsportsmanlike insults of his opponent. This is the third win in a row for Pedro in his last 4 matches.

A very sweet win for Tyson Pedro and Turkalja's mouth shut

“Well then I made that up in my head and he paid for it,” Pedro said to reporters including Bohn. “… We’re on the same page. I thought he mentioned my wife and I said ‘F*ck you, you dog.

I’m going to hurt you.’ That’s why I was angry the ref pulled me off earlier than I would’ve wanted because I wanted to hurt him a bit more. I don’t know. Maybe he just made a mistake and was talking about your wife.

But for the last two days, all I’ve been thinking about is hurting him for talking about my wife. So I feel bad for him if he was talking about your wife”. as quoted by MMAJunkie.
“I finished him off real quick, quicker than I expected,” Pedro said.

“He didn’t last as long as I expected. … The ref pulled me off quicker than I thought ‘The Pleasure Man’ would. I’ve been thinking about him all night and went in deep for this one. He just rubbed me the wrong way, you know? Left a bad taste in my mouth”.
