    “My dad just got out of prison, and I haven’t seen him in about 17 years and I saw him for the first time last night,” Fili told MMA Junkie after the fight. “He was here at the fight today, and if you think you’re going to beat my (expletive) in front of my dad, it’s not going to happen. If you think you’re going to beat my (expletive) in front of my little sister, it’s not going to happen. If you think you’re going to beat my (expletive) in front of all the kids I grew up with, like raising each other, scrapping, scrounging and trying to survive with each other, it’s not going to happen.”

    “I’m honestly just a little overwhelmed,” Fili said. “I just feel like everything is coming together in and out of fighting. Just in life, everything’s coming together. I just turned 29 a couple of weeks ago and I feel like I’m almost starting to get this figured out.”

    As long as he brings his family to his fights, he will never lose again! That worked for awhile with Donald Cerrone too. I guess he forgot to bring them to his last fight though.<Moves>

    That's nice of his dad, most of the white felons around here go straight back to heroin, not to their kids sporting events when they are fresh out of prison. I'm white so its not racist to say that. If his dad was a black felon he would go right back to selling heroin to white people. I'm white so it is racist to say that. #woke

    What do dads from Samoan and Native Hawaiian descent like Fili's typically do after they get out of jail?

    Came here to make a joke, but I just don't have the heart. The guy had no control over his dad's criminal behavior, and what are you going to say when you're young and really didn't have your father around for more than half your life.

    Probably a drug charge or assault.
