“I heard him say something when I took him down. He was complaining on about the knee. When he got back up I targeted it. I didn’t know which knee so I kicked at both and I hit the right spot eventually. It was time to get him out of there. Very glad I got the win and all the best to Carlos. Hope he’s back in there soon!”
“Worst possible scenario having injuries like that. I felt something in my knee earlier on in the fight off a takedown. When he hit me with the kick it didn’t hurt at first. I went to check it and the knee just kind of stayed when I twisted around. That’s when I really felt it go. I don’t know what else to say. It sucks.”
