It took a little over 12 hours for Beneil Dariush to get a response to his call from Elon Musk himself.
After his dominant co-main event victory over Tony Ferguson at UFC 262 last Saturday night, Dariush used his time with Joe Rogan to call the CEO of Tesla Motors due to a delay in the delivery of his new car. by his wife.
“Elon, where is my wife’s car, brother?” I’ve been waiting six months, ”said Dariush. “I’m having a baby, I need a good car, I have to protect my daughter. Let’s go, Elon. Give me my car!
While speaking with reporters – including MMA Fighting – at the UFC 262 post-fight press conference, Dariush was asked to expand on what happened with the car.
“In December, I ordered my car. I ordered the safest car, they told me, ”Dariush explained. “It’s the best car for my pregnant wife and I’m still waiting.
“Elon, my brother, what’s the matter?” You told me March, we are coming in June. I want my car. Come on, buddy. Big fan, but his own disrespects.
Musk took to Twitter on Sunday to let in the next top five lightweights that his car was going to come and issued a public apology.
Coming soon. Sorry for the delay!
