Brazilian fans like their Brazilian fighters, and they don’t pass up an opportunity to meet one of the country’s biggest stars.

At Saturday’s UFC 212 event, Vitor Belfort (26-13 MMA, 15-10 UFC) picked up a narrow – some may say controversialunanimous-decision victory over fellow middleweight Nate Marquardt (35-18-2 MMA, 13-11 UFC) on the pay-per-view main card (check out his post-event comments above).

Following the event, which took place at Jeunesse Arena in Rio de Janeiro, many fighters and fans enjoyed a post-event tradition: enjoying some beers on a Rio beach to watch the sun come up.

While soaking in the post-event atmosphere (and swiping a good wifi signal), MMAjunkie’s John Morgan and Fernanda Prates caught some of the scenes, which included a Rio de Janeiro bus driver stopping his vehicle and quickly exiting to snap a pic with Belfort.

Belfort also took some time to chat with Max Holloway (18-3 MMA, 14-3 UFC), who traded in his interim featherweight title for an undisputed belt after dethroning champ Jose Aldo (26-3 MMA, 8-2 UFC) via third-round TKO in UFC 212’s headliner (via Twitter):
