Speaking to reporters in a media scrum after his win at UFC 234 (via MMAjunkie), Jonathan Martinez discussed his win over Wuliji Buren. Below are some highlights.

Jonathan Martinez on why he was nervous after the fight at UFC 234: “When we go out to eat someone else has to order my food because I’m nervous. I get nervous. I used to get picked on when I was little and they’d make fun of me when I talked. So I’d rather not. I stay quiet and stuff.”

His thoughts on the win: “Now I feel like I belong in the UFC. My first fight, it’s like, ‘Hey, are you in the UFC?’ To me: not yet. Not until you get your first win in the UFC.”
