Vanessa Demopoulos jumps on Joe Rogan after UFC match win (VIDEO)


Greek American Vanessa Demopoulos celebrated her second octagon appearance after a win on Saturday night against Silvana Gomez Juarez with a slick submission win, reported MMA fighting.

According to the news outlet,  Demopoulos beat Juarez during the preliminary card at UFC 270 in Anaheim this past weekend.

'The 33-year-old was dropped hard by a Juarez right hand and was in big trouble — even admitting she didn’t remember several seconds between the punch and recovery — before working towards an armbar that forced the tap in the first round."

After her win Demopoulos got her post-fight interview with Joe Rogan and immediately jumped into his arms excited to be interviewed by him.

“I do so much positive self talk and I thought, ‘Joe Rogan’s gonna interview me, this is gonna be my moment,’” Demopoulos told MMA Fighting. “I’m just gonna put my arm around him, put one leg up, the other leg up, and he’s just gonna hoist me up. That’s what’s going to happen, and it was so flawless. It happened exactly the way I thought in my head over and over again. I was like, ‘Let’s go!’. It was so freaking cool that he went along with it. What a cool guy.

“I first thought about that when I knew I was going to be on a PPV card. I had so many new experiences in one week’s time. It went from fighting in the APEX to fighting in front of a crowd, so my walkout song has more intensity to it, I get to look around, and I got to see faces that I recognized because I envisioned that, and I envisioned Joe Rogan coming up to me and interviewing me, and I kept manifesting the performance bonus.

“I actually was raised in Greece,” Demopoulos explained.
“I was raised by my grandparents growing up."

“I had all of this written everywhere. I have videos where I wrote it on whiteboards, book markers, I had it on the cover of my phone, it was everywhere. But everything played out so much cooler when I lived it over my imagination. F*ck, it was so cool, man!”

In an interview with Combat Press Demopoulos explained her Greek heritage.

“I actually was raised in Greece,” Demopoulos explained. “I was raised by my grandparents growing up. I’m half Greek by blood. Being raised by them, they actually moved to Greece when I was younger, so I grew up in Greece, and [Greek] was the first language that I could speak. I went to kindergarten over there, and I remember coming back to America and not being able to communicate with my own mother. Even today, I still eat home-cooked Greek food, go to Greek dances, and I live the Greek life. I told my grandpa the other day I couldn’t eat a lot of foods, and he said, ‘OK, I will make you lamb.’ I was like, ‘Oh my God!’”
