UFC newcomer Marcelo Rojo is a talented Argentinian standout from Combate Americas. But apart from his skills that earned him a 16-6 record and a fresh UFC contract, Rojo is known for his uhhh, “unique” post-fight celebrations.

Watch a compilation of his dinosaur victory celebrations below:

Rojo will make his UFC debut this weekend, as part of the Leon Edwards vs Belal Muhammad UFC Vegas 21 fight card. The 32-year old is set to face Charles Jourdain in a featherweight bout, which is a division higher than his recent bouts.

Rojo previously went 6-2 in three years with Combate, before getting a shot and signing with the UFC. He was initially supposed to make his debut last February, until his original opponent, Raoni Barcelos was removed due to COVID-19.

It will be interesting to see if he can pick up a win as the underdog, and if we’ll be able to see that velociraptor (or T-Rex?) celebration in the UFC.
