Thiago Santos returned to action for the first time in over a year in the main event of UFC Vegas 13, suffering a third round submission loss to Glover Teixeira.

Santos, who has now lost two straight, issued the following statement on his defeat via Twitter:

Guilherme Cruz of MMA Fighting provided the following transcript of Santos’ statement:

“I’m totally disappointed and embarrassed by my performance, I didn’t do anything I trained, I choked, I wasn’t the fighter I am. I apologize to my coaches and team and thank everyone for their effort, you’re great. Thank you all for always being by my side. I’m sorry for letting you down this time. Thank you God for absolutely everything in my life. I’m more than blessed and I don’t even know if I deserve so much, my faith in you is unshakable.”

The fighter is still ranked #1 in the UFC light heavyweight division at this time, but that is expected to change when the promotion updates their rankings tomorrow.
