Post fight. What a bitch. Just a terrible performance on my part. I have nobody to blame besides Shamata a bit (the ref), the guy is so crooked, probably the only guy in Japan who gets booed. Anyway I fought like I used to in 2003 and lost just the same as I did in 2003. I was focused only on getting a KO. I was in a new environment, a promising new promotion and I had the opportunity to everyone what I was about. A well rounded, experienced, aggressive, conditioned fighter. Instead I went in head hunting, never altered my game plan and was fixated on scoring a KO.
What bullshit and a terrible way to blow a great opportunity.
I felt I did everything in camp and in Singapore right leading up to the fight. I was perfect with everything except the most important part, fighting.
What the fuck, I mean really, how long have I been doing this shit? Let me tell this though. I have learned my lesson. I will not make the mistakes I have made over again. I will use all my trained fighting abilities. I’m sick over my last performance. It was horrible and for now on I’ll fight like the true MMA fighter I am.
Looking back, I should have gave my all on the guillotine in the last round. I have no idea why I didn’t squeeze with everything I had. It just wasn’t my night and for some reason God planned it that way.
I truly believe I can smash that guy and still fight with the best.
I have a bum shoulder that I’ve been advised to take care or surgically. So that’s what’s next for me. I need to find a doctor to fix me right and get me back ASAP because I understand time is not on my side, I’d love and give anything to be at AKA right now, training 2Xs a day but I can’t so I’ll have to try and stay on my diet and not blow up like a fat bastard and keep smoking and drinking to a minimum.
I want to thank my wife, family, fans, AKA, Duke Skywalker, Josh Thomson, Grant Sandow, Tiger Muai thai, Future Legend, Facial Abuse, FOKAI, ONE FC, Evolve, Fairtex, Eric Kelm, The UGC for all the continued support support.
I’ll be back!
