Beneil Dariush clinched the most impressive victory of his career at UFC 262 last week. In the past three rounds, he has temporarily dominated UFC captaincy, Tony Ferguson and in the process will likely put himself to the top of one of the UFC’s most competitive divisions.
Dariush’s post-fight interview was weird. In the middle of the cage, opposite Joe Rogan, Dariush dedicated his first victory to Jesus Christ. (Which is common) Dariush then yelled at the victim of ‘Marxism’ and that he understood their pain.
With religion and politics spanning, Dariush turned to technology after telling Rogan he had someone he wanted to call Dariush, surprising everyone by leaving names other than Elon Musk, CEO of SpaceX and Tesla.
It looks like the Dariush is one of many people on the new Tesla waiting list, and he isn̵7;t happy with the wait times.
“Joe, I’ll call your friend Elon Musk! Where is my car? I’ve been waiting six months! I have a child! I want a good car! I have to protect my daughter! Let’s go to Elon! Bring the car for me! ”
At his post-fight press conference, Dariush expanded his comments, “December, I command my. [Tesla] Cars, ”Beneil said (ht MMA Mania). “I ordered the safest car, the best car for my pregnant wife. And I’m still waiting! Elon, what’s the dealer’s brother? You tell me that March is coming in June. I want my car to come. Big fan. Big fan. But this is disrespect “
Shortly after Dariush made the buzz over the call, he received a response from Musk. Musk wrote on Twitter, “Sorry for the delay soon!”
Coming soon. Sorry for the delay!

It was unclear whether Musk’s messages would say whether Dariush orders would be accelerated, or whether Musk was telling waiting customers their cars would eventually reach them.
It shouldn’t come as a big surprise that this hit Musk’s radar, his wife, the Grimes music artist, is a well-known fan of MMA (especially Invicta FC).
