Keith says he started making TikToks to help him be more comfortable doing MMA interviews.

Keith started making TikToks long before he left Bellator. In an interview with MMA fightshe explained that he actually started making these videos to help him feel more comfortable in front of the camera while doing MMA interviews.

“Because at the time all I was doing was MMA. Within that, it was about learning how to slow myself down, how to speak in a more monotone tone. I usually say this slowly anyway, but when I’m excited or nervous, I talk really fast,” he told the agency.

Keith revealed that when he first started making TikToks, it would take him almost two hours to make a two-minute video.

In one of her “What Employees Would Order” segments, Alexis tried Chipotle’s steak quesadilla with extra cheese toppings and fajitas. Keith tried the same order and added his own twist by dipping it in the restaurant’s honey vinaigrette dressing. He even mixed the dressing with sour cream to make his own ranch.

Since these food tricks have become popular, Chipotle has responded to the trend by adding a new item called the Fajita Quesadilla to its menu. Customers will also be able to order honey vinaigrette as an additional option on all of its quesadillas.

These new changes will be implemented from March 2nd and will only be available online.
