Lorenz Larkin is not throwing himself a pity party after his knockout loss to Paul Daley at Bellator 183 this past Saturday, but he does want a second chance.

Larkin (18-7 MMA, 0-2 BMMA), who made no secret of his disdain for Daley (40-15-2 MMA, 6-2 UFC) ahead of their welterweight bout at SAP Center in San Jose, Calif., encountered another setback early in his Bellator run when he succumbed to a second-round knockout loss at the hands of “Semtex.”

When two strikers the caliber of Larkin and Daley opt to trade blows, it’s a roll of the dice over who could go down first. At Bellator 183 it was Larkin, and while disappointing to lose a fight to someone he dislikes so much, “The Monsoon” is taking it in stride (via Instagram):

Hey you win some and lose some and in this sport you can be on top of the world one minute and feel like a piece of shit the next but hey thats the fight game hat’s off to Daley hopefully you will let me run it back in the future

Regardless of Larkin’s positive attitude, it’s obvious his Bellator run has been less than ideal so far. After falling short of the welterweight title against Douglas Lima in his debut at Bellator NYC in June, Larkin came back for the bout with Daley, which did not go his way, either.

The outcome marked just the second time in Larkin’s career that he’s been stopped with strikes. And while he knows it’s unlikely for the immediate future, he hopes for the chance to eventually redeem himself in a rematch with Daley.
