Hey guys, unfortunately It wasn't my time, Last nights fight went to the better man of the night . Big congrats to @kevinbelingon and his team @teamlakay on their win. Happy to see it go to such a great deserving guy and knowing that i was apart of his journey on becoming a world champion and achieving his dreams, I'm truly honoured.
Bantamweight is his weight class , not mine right now - but who wouldn’t want to do anything it takes and anything in your power to go for a history making moment of being a first ever 3 Division champion when it was offered?! You jump on that idea. No one would let that chance pass! Even knowing how mentally and physically challenging it would be. Thank you to my brother, boss and mentor Chatri @yodchatri for believing in me.
I gave it my all, Put all I had into prepping my mind and body to do it but like i said It just wasn’t my time. I did the best I could in this fight with a dislocated toe from the first round but the pain was too excruciating to adjust. Shit happens and as I’ve said the better man won on the night.
I will continue to defend my other 2 belts and once im ready.
Big thankyou to my wife @brooke_nguyen and all my family, coaches @kmamartialarts @chryslerdecastro ,friends, team mates and everyone that supports me. You guy are what keeps me going! That’s what keeps the fire inside me .
Looking forward to getting home to see my kids and spend some quality time with them.
I hope that my journey can be somewhat of an inspiration for everyone else’s and make them realise that the only limit to the height of your achievements is the reach of your dreams and willingness to work hard for them.
I’ll do my best to get back to all your messages.
Once again Thank you.
