Beneil Dariush won the most stunning fight of his career last week at UFC 262.

He demolished former interim UFC lightweight champion Tony Ferguson through three rounds, possibly propelling himself up the rankings in one of the UFC's most competitive divisions.

Dariush's post-fight interview was peculiar. Dariush initially dedicated his win to Jesus Christ in the middle of the cage, facing Joe Rogan (as is customary). 

Dariush moved on to technology after covering religion and politics. Dariush startled everyone by naming Elon Musk, CEO of SpaceX and Tesla, after telling Rogan he had someone he wanted to call out.

It's unclear if Musk's statement means Dariush's purchase will be accelerated or whether Musk is promising other awaiting customers that their cars would arrive soon.

It shouldn't come as a surprise that this caught Musk's attention. His wife, recording artist Grimes, is an MMA enthusiast (particularly of Invicta FC).
