On the Sunday episode of 90 Day Fiancé, Ariela travels to support her husband Biniyam in his first MMA fight. She was present even though her father, a doctor, declined to attend the battle due to the health dangers associated with MMA fighting.
"Honestly, some of the facts and data that [my father] provides are very alarming," she admitted in her confessional. Bini could get gravely injured or die."
Even before the fight began, Ariela spoke with Biniyam and informed him that he didn't have to fight if he didn't want to, but he didn't listen to her. "Listen, just let me try it," he stated to her. I promise you that I don't wish to murder myself."
Then Ariela questioned him if he would still do it if she told him not to. He told her not to bother him with that question. "I've already decided, I'm ready, and I don't want to look back."
Biniyam reveled in the attention he received as he entered the octagon, waving the Ethiopian flag. Ariela sat with her mother, Janice, who was also worried about her son-in-law. Biniyam began the battle aggressively, scoring a stunning flying kick on his opponent.
Biniyam won the bout in 33 seconds by putting his opponent down with a chokehold. Biniyam was clearly pleased with his victory, performing an amazing backflip off the cage as the crowd applauded.
The MMA fighter then raised his wife Ariela and kissed her. Biniyam's coach was equally happy with the fight, calling it a "dominant performance," and he expressed excitement about Biniyam's future in MMA.
"MMA, like, it's my dream, it's my ideal aim," Biniyam remarked. This possibility is now available to me thanks to my fiancée. I don't have any words for how delighted I am right now."
