However, the path to the octagon was not without its obstacles. In a moment that almost overshadowed the fight itself, Tsarukyan was involved in a physical altercation with a spectator. This incident, occurring moments before what would become the biggest match of his career, has since garnered significant attention.

“He showed me ‘F*** you’ and he wanted to hit me and I wanted to hit him back,” said Arman Tsarukyan.

“So guys, no one is allowed to show me ‘F*** you’. It doesn’t matter who you are, I will punch you in the face,” Tsarukyan added.

“You can show me ‘F***’ from 200 meters away, I won’t hit you. But when you are close to me, it’s like automatically… I am from Russia. Don’t do that, please, otherwise, I end up in jail in the USA,” Tsarukyan concluded.
