MELBOURNE, Australia – Jonathan Martinez makes no secret about his shy persona, which was on show throughout his post-fight interview with Jon Anik after his victory at UFC 234.

Aside from when he’s preventing, Martinez (9-2 MMA, 1-1 UFC) doesn’t like being uncovered to the skin world. It’s not simply the cameras or the microphones, although. He defined post-fight that it’s rather more than that.

“Once we exit to eat another person has to order my meals as a result of I’m nervous,” Martinez stated after UFC 234. “I get nervous.”

The place do these nerves come from? Martinez stated it stems again to his childhood.

“I used to get picked on after I was little and so they’d make enjoyable of me after I talked,” Martinez stated. “So I’d moderately not. I keep quiet and stuff.”

UFC 234 occurred at Rod Laver Enviornment in Melbourne, Australia. Martinez defeated Wuliji Buren (9-5 MMA, Zero-Three UFC) by unanimous choice of their bantamweight bout, which streamed on UFC Battle Go previous to televised prelims on ESPN and the pay-per-view most important card at Rod Laver Enviornment in Melbourne, Australia.

Martinez stated he was “extra nervous about interviews than preventing” main as much as his sophomore octagon look at UFC 234. Fortuitously for him, he’s in a position to push these nerves away when the cage door closes.

After dropping a choice to Andre Soukhamthath in his promotional debut at UFC battle Nigh 138 in October, Martinez was in a position to bounce again with the choice over Buren. With the win, he now feels at house on the game’s largest stage.
