Renato Moicano extended his streak to three in a row with a big win over Jalin Turner at UFC 300.

Moicano walked into his UFC 300 prelim bout as a moderate underdog, sitting at +200 against the heavily favored Turner. The oddsmakers were nearly proven right after Turner blasted Moicano with a nasty right hook that sent ‘Money’ crashing to the canvas. But instead of going in for the kill, Turner turned his back and walked away, believing Moicano was done.

Instead, referee Herb Dean allowed the fight to continue. Less than a round later, Moicano was victorious after taking Turner to the canvas and lighting him up with some fierce ground and pound.

Taking the microphone following his finish, Renato Moicano offered fans a word of advice on how to save their country from a looming economic crisis.

“I love private property, and let me tell you something,” Moicano said to the live crowd. “If you care about your f*cking country, read Ludwig Von Mises and the 6 lessons of the Austrian Economic School, motherf*ckers!”

For those unfamiliar, Ludwig von Mises was a prominent economist and one of the major figures in the Austrian School of Economics. You can learn more about that here.

Bit-Coin Rapid Fire podcast host John Vallis shared a clip of Moicano’s post-fight comment which then got the attention of Canadian psychologist and media commentator Jordan B. Peterson who remarked, “This is unspeakably great.”
