Munhoz (18-5 MMA, 8-5 UFC) suffered a ruin up resolution loss to Edgar (24-8-1 MMA, 18-8-1 UFC) in Saturday’s bantamweight headliner, which took field at UFC Apex and aired on ESPN. It become a five-round fight that got “Warfare of the Evening” honors, but there become finest one winner.
And it wasn’t Munhoz, who become frustrated about it in a while.
“Undoubtedly (I won),” Munhoz urged journalists, including MMA Junkie, on the post-fight recordsdata convention. “I become correct appropriate now with the doctor getting some stitches, and a few of my coaches, Dan Lambert, he become correct showing me 17 of the media scores. Of 20 of the media scores (on MMADecisions.com), 17 gave me the fight. So finest three gave to him. Then I saw in the punching scores I had the first, the third, the fourth, and the fifth rounds. It’s what it is far.”
Munhoz isn’t pointing finest to the media and stats for his reasoning for winning the fight. He become in there for all five rounds against the ragged UFC champion and thinks he did better work.
“Not even (correct) the leg kicks,” Munhoz acknowledged. “I become hurting him with the jab. I chased him for five rounds. He bought a couple takedowns, but he couldn’t plan anything with the takedowns, and I purchased lend a hand up appropriate away. I become seeking the plan.”
In spite of Munhoz’s disappointment, the consequence stands. He become reluctant to bitch too powerful, though, and acknowledged he’s going to favor himself lend a hand up and rebound from the first two-fight dropping skid of his profession.
“I’m consistently down to fight anybody,” Munhoz acknowledged. “I never chose any opponent. I’m down to fight anybody, any time. That is presumably correct to win the rematch. Correct now correct scoot lend a hand home and be mad for a couple days. I’m very grateful for what I plan and the folk round me.”
