After six months of intense training and personal development, I felt extremely well prepared for my fight in Brazil. The universe had other plans. What started out as a great fight in my favor quickly turned into a defeat by submission. A small, but vital, technical mistake was to blame. I zigged when I should have zagged.

Having lost my last three fights in the UFC, I am in a very difficult spot. To be completely honest, I don’t know where I’m going to go. For now, I’m mentally recovering and spending the days watching my daughter Gracie.

I have also started (or continued) to work on some other ideas I have been tossing around. I am hoping to book some keynote speaking events in the near future so I can share my story and the valuable lessons I’ve learned up to this point in my career.

Another few days of relaxation and a generous diet, and then I’ll get back on the horse.

Thank you all for your continued support!
