De Andrade (27-4 MMA, 5-4 UFC) wasted no time putting his hands on the chin of Pirrello (15-7-1 MMA, 0-2 UFC) in their bantamweight matchup at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas. He landed a bomb of a shot, flattening his foe with a vicious left hand at the 2:04 mark of Round 1.
The Brazilian had an outpour of emotions after the fact, too. He did multiple flips off the octagon fence and began weeping.

The emotion from de Andrade continued during his post-fight interview, too. He was short on words, but his tears and facial reactions spoke volumes.
“I have no words,” de Andrade said through an interpreter during his post-fight interview with Daniel Cormier. “I thank my trainers.”
