After Brandon Moreno's UFC victory, something just as amazing happened in Tijuana, just hours after the fighter's victory, a mural with one of the most iconic scenes from Saturday night appeared on the train bridge in Colonia Libertad.

According to reports, the mural was done during most of the night and apparently, they did not have the permits to do it, despite this, locals are hoping that the artwork is kept and not ordered to be erased or that there is no retaliation against the artists.

In the Facebook publication of Mode Orozco, creator of the mural, it was published that this image that he decided to represent on a large scale "brought tears to more than one person's eyes". He also took advantage of the same publication to thank his family who helped him throughout the night for the creation of the mural.

This weekend, Brandon Moreno, originally from Tijuana, became the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) champion and is the first Mexican to win the most important mixed martial arts event in the world.

Moreno began his professional career at the age of 17 and has come a long way since then, he has known both failures and victories. Nevertheless, "sí se pudo" as the Tijuana native said Saturday night: "I'm a pinche chamaco from Mexico and look at me now holding the belt. I trained very hard to be better today".
