It’s been almost a week since UFC 117, and the defeat is still fresh in my mind. Losing is never easy, especially when you put so much hard work into the preparation. As has always been the case in my life, I will dust off, get a fresh start, and come back stronger than ever. I’m already back in the gym working on the little things that lead to my defeat. I want to thank all everyone who helped me prepare for the fight, from my coaches to my sponsors to my supporters. I want to win for myself, but I also want to win for all of you.

On to the next battle!!!
