Gilbert Burns shot a selfie video as his brutal UFC-Pittsburgh knockout win was being announced


Gilbert Burns had a big moment thanks to his thunderous second-round knockout of Jason Saggo at UFC Fight Night 116, and apparently he wanted to make very sure he captured it on video.

As Bruce Buffer announced the details of Burns’ win, the Brazilian fighter celebrated by shooting what looked to be a selfie video on his cell phone.

First of all, that’s kind of weird, since the fight was already televised on FS1, so there really wasn’t much danger that images of the post-fight scene would be lost forever. Second of all, when you do that, suddenly you’re the guy looking at his phone while everybody else is looking at you, and nobody looks cool doing that.

Still, when you knock someone out cold with a single punch on live TV, maybe you get to celebrate more or less however you want in the immediate aftermath.

And if he’s willing to go to this length to capture a big moment in his life, maybe Burns’ Instagram will prove to be worth following.
