After the night’s co-main event, Cormier, the ex-champion across two divisions and commentator, revealed the outcome of a post-battle interview with Maycee Barber. Barber had managed to defeat Amanda Ribas, and Cormier’s dress shirt bore the proof of the intense fight.
As the fight replay showcased Barber’s triumph on screen, an unfiltered mic recorded her apology and Cormier’s response regarding the blood splatter.
“Sorry,” said Barber.
“Oh, you got blood all over me,” Cormier responded, sounding somewhat dismayed.
Despite this, Cormier bounced back swiftly, acknowledging Barber for her notable fifth consecutive win against a ranked opponent. Barber requested and received a “Fight of the Night” bonus of $50,000.
UFC’s social media account jokingly suggested that Barber should spend a part of her prize money to purchase a new dress shirt for Cormier.
