The fighter, who is known for an exciting style, admits that his bout at UFC Fight Night Nashville wasn’t very entertaining.
“Of course it’s not my best performance in my career, but the most important thing is to get the ‘W,'” Makdessi said backstage after the event (via John Morgan & Mike Bohn of MMA Junkie).
Makdessi has actually picked up his last four victories by way of decision and hasn’t gotten a finish in almost four years.
While Makdessi wants to be an exciting fighter, one thing that is more important to him is to get the victory.
“I mean, I won’t lie to you – in the past, I would let a lot of things get in the way, outside,” Makdessi said. “Like, people don’t understand. This sport, mixed martial arts, is a complex sport. Hockey and football and soccer, other sports, you have a lot of games. You can make a mistake. You can lose, have some losses. In mixed martial arts, you can’t lose. Every loss in a combat sport, every ‘W’ and every ‘L,’ it’s very big, you know? That’s the reality. That being said, the ‘W’ is the most important thing.”
There is no word at this time as to when Makdessi will fight next, but the fighter has earned nine of seventeen professional MMA wins by way of KO/TKO.
