First thank you God before anything! Glory is always yours! I stepped in the gas too late and showed way too much respect in this fight! I’m defending my welterweight belt next, but I’m not done with this weight class! I will fight for this MW belt again! I fought one of the best in the world at his weight class! I will learn a lot from this fight and come back better! Thank you all for supporting me and sorry for those that I disappointed as well, it’s not always a big knockout specially at this level! I will be back really soon! Thank you Team and family I love you all! ---- Primeiramente obrigado meu Deus mais uma vez por tudo! A glória e sempre sua! Demorei muito pra acordar na luta, e respeitei de mais ele. Vou defender meu cinturão nos meio médios, mais ainda voltarei a lutar nessa categoria. Obrigado a todos que me apoiaram. Não foi uma luta super empolgante mais as vezes é assim mesmo. Quem intende do esporte sabe disso, ainda mais nesse nível. Sempre aprendo com os meus erros e não vai ser diferente aqui. Muito obrigado meu time e família por tudo! Amo vocês e simbora pros próximos!
