Čak pet dana je trebalo bivšem UFC prvaku Eddieju Alvarezu da skupi snage i obrati se javnosti nakon poraza od Dustina Poiriera na UFC on FOX priredbi prošlog vikenda.

Očito pogođen teškim posrtajem, ali i svim repovima koji su se ostali vući nakon meča, Alvarez je dugo smišljao koje će odgovore ponuditi javnost, a onda se obratio preko društvenih mreža.

Očekivano, dio objave se odnosi i na suca Marca Goddarda i njegovog trenera Marka Henryja. Prvi je donio odluku da je njegov lakat bio ilegalan (12-6) te ga je digao na noge što je u konačnici donijelo Poirieru pobjedu, a drugi je preuzeo odgovornost za udarac koji je Alvarez pokušao plasirati, a koštao ga je poraza.

No, bivši prvak smatra da niti jedan, niti drugi nemaju veze s njegovim porazom i da se radi o isključivo njegovoj odgovornosti.

“Nema šanse da ću osuđivati previše grubo Goddarda. Imamo isti posao. On mora donositi vrlo teške odluke u trenutku, baš kao i ja. A on to mora činiti misleći na zdravlje i sigurnost boraca. Što je učinjeno je učinjeno”, rekao je među ostalim o odluci Goddarda koja je podijelila borilačku javnoast.

Nekoliko rečenica je posvetio i svom dugogodišnjem treneru Marcu Henryju.

“Nemojmo zaboraviti da su Ricardo Almeida i Mark Henry zaslužni za moju UFC titulu i neke od najvećih pobjeda koje sam ostvario u UFC-u. On je najjači radnik u našem timu, vrlo je detaljan, posvećen, koncentriran, gura nas prema naprijed i tjera da shvatimo kakvu šansu uvijek imamo ispred nas. On je moj trener, ali i moj prijatelj, on je moj mentor jako dugo vremena”, stoji u poruci o Henryju.

U ostatku objave Alvarez je čestitao Poirieru na velikoj pobjedi, a na koncu je zaključio da njegova misija nije pobijediti, nego zabaviti.

To je, svakako, i ovaj put sjajno odradio…

Alvarez nakon ovog poraza ima 29 pobjeda i 6 izgubljenih mečeva u čitavoj karijeri. Jedini “No Contest” je stigao upravo iz prvog meča protiv Poiriera koji je, baš kao i ovaj, završio vrlo kontroverzno radi ilegalnih koljena koja je bivši prvak uputi.

There are no grey areas in Fighting , one man will lose and the other will win , this is why I love this game . Controversial calls , judging , and fan support can always add to the drama but in the end 1 will stand and 1 will fall . Hats off to Dustin and his team he stayed calm under pressure and fought beautifully this makes us 1-1 . In no way will I judge Godard harshly , We have the same Job ! he has to make decisions in split seconds just like I do , and he makes them with my health and my opponents in mind . What’s done is done . As for Mark Henry calling for an elbow in the heat of the moment . An angled elbow is an incredible shot from the position I was in , it’s actually the only shot you can throw . We simply had a miscommunication, it happens in war more often than not , this was a case of “friendly fire” and we ended up on the losing end of this battle . But let’s remember Ricardo and Mark are also responsible for my UFC world title , and wins over some of the greatest fighters in the UFC , He’s the hardest worker on our team , obsessive, detailed , and pushes us all to understand the opportunity we have in front of is on a world stage . He’s my coach , friend , and Been a mentor of mine for longer than most of you know . Losing is never satisfying , I don’t lose often but when I do I grow the most as a person/fighter . Adjustments will be made , if anything this loss will add to the joy of my next Victory ! I want to thank my team , coaches , my family , and everyone who supports me in this journey . My family especially, the sacrifice falls on the back of my wife and our children . We experience great Joy in our victories and incredible Pain in our losses but our only other option is to avoid the experience and feel nothing at all . We are grateful to be able to fight every time the walk is made to the octagon , and anxiously awaiting the the opportunity to make that walk again . Thank you @ufc . I was brought here , not to win , but to entertain…. Are you not entertained ???? T.H.N.Q
