Aoriqileng might not have been aware at the time that Cody Durden made some racist comments about him after UFC Vegas 43. But the Chinese fighter found out about it and reacted with an angry Instagram post.
He might have lost the decision but Aoriqileng believes he ‘destroyed’ Durden during the fight:

Aoriqileng was not mincing his words. After the fight Durden told him to go back to China and this is his full response,
“I destroyed this coward in the cage, but the judges gave him a chance to say something disgusting through his disgusting mouth. He can do nothing in the fight, and I saw fear through his eyes. He is a coward.”
The decision wasn’t particularly controversial but Durden’s post fight comments were. The American was condemned for his reaction and it will be interesting to see how long he has to wait for his next UFC fight.
Aoriqileng is now winless in two UFC fights, although he did pick up a performance bonus after his debut defeat.
