After his victory over the legendary Tony Ferguson at UFC 262, fighter Beneil Dariush gave an interview to Joe Rogan where he challenged Tesla founder Elon Musk to a fight.
In his post-fight interview, Dariush first dedicated the victory to Jesus Christ and then turned to technology, saying that he has someone to challenge for the fight. After that, Benil Dariusz surprised everyone by naming the CEO of SpaceX and Tesla. The thing is, Dariush has been waiting six months for a Tesla car he ordered, and he doesn’t like it.
“Joe, I want to call your buddy, Elon. Elon Musk! Where’s my car, bro? I’m waiting six months, I’m having a baby, I need a nice car for my daughter. Come on, Ilon! Give me my car.”
At the post-fight press conference, Dariusz explained the situation in a little more detail: “In December I ordered my electric car. I was told I was buying the safest car, the best car for my pregnant wife. And I’m still waiting. Ilon what’s the matter? The car was promised to be delivered in March, and it’s June soon. I want my car. I’m a big fan of Ilon, but this is disrespectful.”
Elon Musk promptly commented on the situation on his Twitter page. He apologized for the delay and promised that Benil Dariush would soon receive his car.
