Saturday Night the UFC presents Fight Night Mexico City and it looks to be a fun card. In the main event, Brandon Moreno will face off with Sergio Pettis in a Flyweight clash. In the co-feature, Alexa Grasso is set to square off with Randa Markos. Both fights should be very entertaining.

Before they meet in the cage, they met on the stage. It was the UFC Media Day and we have the video of the faceoffs.

UFC Fight Night Halifax: Post-Fight Press Conference

UFC Fight Night Halifax post-fight press conference

UFC Fight Night from Halifax gave us plenty of noteworthy moments tonight. After all was said and done, the post-fight press conference created a number of quotable moments as well.

The night saw unranked Randa Markos shock the former UFC strawweight champion Carla Esparza by taking a split decision win from the #3 ranked contender.

Johny Hendricks had a successful middleweight debut with a unanimous decision win over Hector Lombard and could not have looked more thrilled upon hearing his name announced.

In the main event #8 ranked heavyweight Derrick Lewis knocked Travis Browne out cold in the 2nd round. The #9 ranked Browne was off to a good start but once Lewis started to land his punches it was game over for Browne shortly after.

The post-fight press conference kicked off with Johny Hendricks talking about how the night felt, his plans going forward, and Georges St. Pierre.

Hometown favorite Gavin Tucker talked about his UFC debut and what it felt like to finally step into the octagon for the first time. He also mentioned the name CM Punk.

The self-proclaimed interim heavyweight champion Derrick Lewis stole the show though. With his mini belt by his side, hearing him break down why he was holding his stomach early on might be the highlight of the night.

Enjoy a listen in the video above.
