Joe Burrow, Jessie Bates and Chidobe Awuzie showed up at UFC 276

Burrow, flanked by Jessie Bates and Chidobe Awuzie, got the full star treatment at the Octagon, even linking up with middleweight champion Izzy Adesanya and even got in the Octagon itself. Izzy went on to best Jared Cannonier in the main event by unanimous decision later that night.
