Manny Gamburyan had a special guest Octagon-side with him Saturday night at UFC 178 in Ronda Rousey.
The two are teammates, and after Gamburyan earned a second round submission victory over Cody Gibson, he issued a challenge based partly on Rousey.
“Bryan Caraway, where you at?” Gamburyan asked. “Take the challenge. Win or lose your next fight, let’s do it. One-hundred-percent, win or lose, I want Bryan Caraway.
“Bring it up. Don’t be scared homie.”
Gamburyan, Rousey, Caraway and Miesha Tate all had issues with one another while filming The Ultimate Fighter last year. Gamburyan made his debut at bantamweight, but informed Caraway he could come down to his weight class to meet him.
“I feel great,” he said, of competing in his third different weight class inside the Octagon. “I should have been (at this weight) for a long time.”
Rousey, the reigning UFC female bantamweight champion, was in the cage with Gamburyan after and came over while his post-fight interview was being conducted.
