UFC 236: Key quotes from the winning fighters (and Alan Jouban) in Atlanta

From what they did well to what they want to improve, from callouts to near begging for better opponents, we heard a lot after the fights were over Saturday night.

UFC 236 took place Saturday at State Farm Arena in Atlanta. The main card aired on pay-per-view following prelims on ESPN and UFC Fight Pass/ESPN+. After their bouts, the winners from the card had a few things to say, and we captured some of the best quotes.

Dustin Poirier (25-5 MMA, 17-4 UFC) celebrated his interim lightweight title win over Max Holloway (20-5 MMA, 16-5 UFC) in the main event, and Israel Adesanya (16-0 MMA, 6-0 UFC) did the same after beating Kelvin Gastelum (16-4 MMA, 10-4 UFC) for the interim middleweight strap in the co-feature.

And Alan Jouban (16-7 MMA, 7-5 UFC) couldn’t believe the judges left him with a split decision loss to Dwight Grant (10-2 MMA, 2-1 UFC) on the main card.

Go inside the event and check out snippets of what 12 of the 13 winning fighters (and Jouban) had to say after their wins, accompanied by action shots from their victories at UFC 236.
