God damn - that's the stuff you see in movies! People literally partying in the street with their hometown hero, now the UFC Lightweight Champion! They even painted a 1,070 sq ft mural of him in Guarujá!
I'm such a sucker for these videos; the one from last year of Jan Blanchowicz arriving back to Poland after becoming champ still gives me goosebumps to this day....
What a moment. Just so damn cool. That's what these guys (and girls) are fighting for - so much more than just themselves.
Getting to see that up close just has to add to your motivation, desire, and will to win. Friggin awesome.
