At UFC 300, Arman Tsarukyan secured the biggest win of his career so far. He defeated Charles Oliveira, narrowly edging past him via split decision. In the lead-up to the bout, however, he made headlines for a completely different reason.

That’s because he appeared to strike a fan in the crowd during his walkout. Dana White commented on the matter at the post-fight press conference, suggesting that he expected the fan in question to sue.

However, as per the man himself Obed Ardon, the only thing he desires is tickets to an upcoming PPV event.

Ardon’s response to Tsarukyan incident

“I’d like to apologize to Arman for provoking him by flipping him off. I was buzzing all day and the moment got to me,” Ardon told Bloody Elbow. “It was my first time attending a live UFC event and it was absolutely incredible. I’m glad the incident wasn’t as bad as it could have been. I do want to make clear that I didn’t pull him towards me, yell out offensive words or anything of that nature. I flipped him off nothing else. Congrats to Arman on a great performance and best of luck to him against whoever he fights for the title.”

“To answer Dana White’s comments about suing: I will not sue, that never crossed my mind,” Ardon continued. “My first thought was I hope I don’t get kicked out. Thank you Uncle Dana for blessing us with an amazing 300 card… and can you bless me and my brothers up with tickets to UFC 303?”
