Sad news 👎 The #UFC has decided to cut me from their organization. While I understand there are lots of fighters chasing contracts right now, I feel this has not been a fair decision... Hear me out. My first fight was taken on a two-week notice, fighting a 10-year older veteran in the UFC, who I fought for three rounds, doubling my fan-base as a result!
My second fight was a split second mistake on my part that caused a flash knockout and the referee to step in immediately (!) even though I was back to my senses as I hit the ground (or have u ever seen a "knocked out" fighter granby-roll in to guard?). However I am not mourning what has been, and I don't blame anyone else for this. It has only been up to me... I just feel I could have been given one more chance to show how much more I've got in my skillset 🥋🤼♂️🥊 I am extremely talented both on the feet and on the ground. I have lung capacity & cardio for days; and I have the mental edge over everyone I've ever fought - rooted in my traditional Martial Art values. And above all of this my heart is in the right place... In other words: I was built for this! 💪
DON'T WORRY though, I am far from done in this sport. I constantly get so much better with every year and I still have plenty of years until I reach my physical peak. It makes me excited thinking of how great I will become in 2, 3 or 5 more years! The warrior's journey never stops... That's what we call #Bushido 👺 Now there are plenty of interesting routes to take from here, and I will talk more about the alternatives that excite me in a future post. Hopefully I'll get more than two fights a year now so you'll see me fight more often! 👊 To be continued 👊 #TheFuture
