Alexander Hernandez Learned Valuable Lessons At UFC Fight Night Brooklyn

MMA

Alexander Hernandez competed in the featured preliminary card bout at UFC Fight Night Brooklyn, suffering a second round TKO loss to Donald Cerrone.

The upstart fighter was a bit of a trash talker leading into the contest, taking many shots at Cerrone during the UFC Fight Night Brooklyn pre-fight press conference.

However, after the defeat, a reflective Hernandez would take to Instagram to say that he learned a lot from the loss to Cerrone:

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Congratulations @cowboycerrone. You taught me something invaluable in defeat. Perhaps the best/worst thing that ever happened to me was a 42 second knockout debut. I go into every fight feeling untouchable and expecting a repeat of the same occurrence. I prepare myself in the moments prior for an execution in the first round and not a fight. I need to learn to fight. I need to address my approach. I brought the fight to Cerrone and where he made adjustments, I did not. Experience is a costly bitch. Thank you @ufc @danawhite @seanshelby for an amazing opportunity and belief in me. I will not let this go in vain. The triumph of adversity is what makes a man and defines legends. I will be be back. And you will know I mean what I say next time you see me. This is good pain.
