Fighters from UFC Fight Night 66 Hit Social Media to Share After-Fight Thoughts
Win or lose, we all want the final word. This is true after UFC Fight Night 66, where many fighters took to social media to share their thoughts on their performance. While many of the posts were positive and rather uplifting, a few left us with a bad taste in our mouth.
Kajan Johnson took to Twitter to say, “A win feels so much better coming off a loss, especially a devastating one. That being said, I think I’ll stick to this winning thing.” Frankie Edgar also used the website to share this message with opponent Urijah Faber, “Honor to share the Octagon with you bro!”
But it was comments like the one made by Nolan Ticman that left many feeling underwhelmed with his lack of tact. “Executed a technical game plan. Fight metric & damage on his face don’t lie. No disrespect to my opponent but I won,” Ticman posted to Twitter. That post is sure to give the fighter some backlash.
Gegard Mousasi took the time to share a quick Tweet with fans, saying, “This is a proud moment & milestone for our industry as a whole. Go Team @Bridgestone,” referring to his recent sponsorship by the tire brand.
Here are some highlights from the main card of UFC Fight Night 66:
- Frankie Edgar won against Urijah Faber in 25 minutes, making Edgar’s total fight time the most of any fighter in the company’s history.
- Gegard Mousasi earned back-to-back victories for the first time in his career.
- Mark Munoz completed nine takedowns in his first victory since July 2013, which is a personal best for his UFC career. He also officially retired from MMA competition directly after the event.
- Luke Barnatt had his third consecutive loss, the longest losing streak in his career thus far.
- Hyun Gyu Lim had his first knockout loss of his career.
