Well, I fought Joe Lauzon and lost. I didnt just lose, I lost without even really getting to fight. Joe over whelmed me and I never was able to start, Congratulations to him. I felt fine going into the fight. My weight cut was the easiest ever and I had a great group to corner Joe came out hard and kept the pressure on me. After some of the shots he landed, I honestly have no idea what happened or what was going on. I know I was armbarred, but I dont know which arm or why I tapped, because my arm feels fine.
I took this fight with 2 weeks to prepare and I truly felt that I would be ready. Would it have been different with a full camp? Ill probably never know. I am very disappointed with my performance and have a LOT to work on when I get home.
I spoke with Joe Silva from the UFC and he told me I would have at least one more chance and next time I would have the proper time to prepare. For that I am happy, but I still cant believe how bad that fight was for me.
On a different note, being back in the UFC and seeing how much its grown is incredible. On top of that, they have a top notch group who runs their promotion and it is really well done. EVERYTHING on time and professional.
I have 4 staples in my head and some bruising, but the real pain deeper. Ill be back to the gym as soon as I can to work out what went wrong and to prepare to come back stronger.
For those that support me, I am very sorry for this performance. It wasnt deserving of any support.
