UFC Fight Night 121 reactions: Winning and losing fighters on social media


Since the early days when the sport was anything but a mainstream endeavor, the MMA industry has thrived and survived through various websites, forums and, perhaps most importantly, social-media platforms.

Fighters interact with fans, each other and many more through the likes of Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, which helps outsiders get a deeper look into the minds of the athletes.

Following Saturday’s UFC Fight Night 121 event in Sydney, several of the winning and losing fighters, along with their coaches, training partners or family members, took to social media to react to the event or share a message with supporters.

Check out some of those reactions.

Each day of our lives we learn many valuable lessons, despite being through many things in my life I continue to learn and see what’s really out there in this world. Many negative comments have come out about me needing to be “humbled” which is interesting to me as I never spoke poorly about my opponent and never looked to far ahead, I rallied with my friends and family and I said I wanted to do this for my people and my crowd but I realised that my people are the one who have stuck by me through thick and thin. I trained so hard and made weight like a professional, my opponent missed and refused to cut anymore weight, I still took on the fight with no hesitation. He talked at weigh ins and I simply said he should’ve made weight, I went into the fight and gave my respect, I followed my coaches instructions and followed the game plan as I knew I was facing a dangerous opponent, I made an error and got caught with a well timed head kick, despite all that I got up and congratulated my opponent in the cage. We live by the sword we die by the sword. Thank you to all who have shown support and thank you to the @ufc and @mickmaynard2 who have been nothing but a pleasure and a dream come true to work with, I really hope I get one more chance to do it again since my opponent missed the weight and I still chose to fight. I may not have gotten the win but I hold my head high knowing Ive been fighting for the very best organisation in the world and still have great people following me and loving me. I do this for the people I love so the hate doesn’t bother me. I hope that the #UFC give me another opportunity to go out there and do what I love to do. Fighters fight and overcome adversity and this isn’t the end for me, I’m a professional and I will always act like one at all times. End of the day, I’m still a fighter, a father, brother and a husband, I’m always blessed #UFCsydney #TheAssassin #blessed #strong #AustralianTopTeam #Mma #ATT4LYF #Bodyfit #engage
