If the teary eyed reaction on Mitch Gagnon’s (9-2) face didn’t represent how special it was to finally secure a win for the UFC, his post-fight comments did.
“It was a great feeling and a long time coming,” said Gagnon on MMA Fighting. “I knew I belong here and just had to prove it in the cage. Hands down it was the greatest moment of my career.”
Bryan Caraway (17-5) defeated Gagnon in his debut at UFC 149. Gagnon returned to action with a submission victory over Walel Watson (9-5) in the first round at UFC 152.
