UFC jitters are for real, but not for everybody. Check out UFC newcomer Ali Bagautinov, who debuts in ESPN.com's flyweight rankings at No. 7 following a near-perfect performance against Tim Elliott at UFC 167. Bagautinov never appeared even slightly rattled all week, and that includes interviews. After his three-round fight, a foreign media member challenged Bagautinov on the spot by basically asking him, "You're known for big punches. Where were they tonight?" Bagautinov didn't miss a beat, replying (in Russian) that it was his first UFC appearance and he wanted as much camera time as he could get.
