Real men cry.

And UFC lightweight Justin Gaethje? Well, he's one heck of a man.

Following Rose Namajunas' title-stealing win over Joanna Jedrzejczyk at UFC 217 on Saturday, the slugger took to his Instagram account to express his jubilation. His loud, weepy jubilation. Check out the video above.

It's an endearing sight, such raw emotion, that highlights the camaraderie and passion shared by fighters. Hopefully, for Gaethje he can bottle all that inspiration and use it to his advantage when he faces former champion Eddie Alvarez at UFC 218 on December 2 in Detroit.
