I’ve been a type of guys that claims ring rust isn’t a factor, however I undoubtedly felt ring rust on the market. I felt wonderful warming up. I felt wonderful all week with my staff. Like earlier than we went on the market, I used to be warming up within the again and felt nice. However the second I obtained on the market and within the cage, it was simply totally different. It was awkward. The timing and vary was off. The pace was totally different. I believe it simply needed to do with it being a yr off, and it simply took me a minute to search out my vary and distance and I couldn’t get going.

The second spherical was iffy, and I used to be assured that I had received the third spherical. He managed me towards the cage so much, however I really feel like he in all probability thought he was profitable by controlling me towards the cage. However, I imply, I assume within the judges eyes and in my eyes, it was kinda like he was stalling, you already know. I really feel like I used to be doing extra injury, you already know. I went for a deep guillotine twice. I used to be making an attempt to win the combat, and in [the] moments and alternatives that I had, I took and tried to complete the combat versus he was doing extra stalling. Yeah, I believe that’s what received me the combat.”
