After the Bell: One-on-One with Alan Jouban


Have you ever wondered what it would be like following a victory inside the Octagon? Who the fighters talk to? What their post-fight meals are? What they dream about or think about when they wake up in the morning? Well, those are amongst the questions that will be answered in MMASucka.com’s newest series, “After the Bell.”

After the Bell: Alan Jouban

Last night at UFC 184, welterweight Alan Jouban had an impressive performance against Richard Walsh. It didn’t take long for the Black House fighter to find his range and about midway through the very first round, Jouban was able to land a nasty elbow which marked the end of the road for the Australian. The EPOK Agency fighter is now 2-1 inside the Octagon and with zero damage taken against Walsh, we can expect a speedy turnaround.

The first ever edition of “After the Bell” takes place below.

Who was the first person you spoke with following the fight? What was the conversation like.

After the initial interviews and stuff with my team I went to find my wife in the crowd. It was basically us exhaling together after months of build up to this.  It was a a great moment to share with her there like we envisioned.

When you woke up this morning what was the first thing you thought?

Well I still haven’t went to sleep yet, but I was basically just reading all the great comments from friends on social media all night. And waiting for my son to wake up to surprise him.

After a hard fought bout food must be something you are looking forward to. What was your big post fight meal last night and this mornings.

Having my traditional victory breakfast now with eggs, pancakes, coffee, OJ and a bit of everything. Last night we went to have steak at Palms Steak downtown and shared the moment with some friends.
