Last weekend on the undercard of UFC 219, Italian middleweight prospect Marvin Vettori stepped into the Octagon with Dagestan’s Omari Akhmedov.

The pair’s was a rousing, back and forth affair, during which both men enjoyed major moments of success, and in the end, the competitive nature of the this thrilling battle manifested itself in a majority draw.

While a draw is certainly better than a loss, it’s clearly not the result either fighter was hoping for. In the eyes of Vettori, however, the way he was treated post-fight was worse than the draw itself. In his opinion, he and Akhmedov deserved Fight of the Night honors – or at the very least a little love from the UFC on social media.

The Italian fighter sounded off on Twitter post event.

While Vettori was clearly quite disappointed with the UFC’s reaction to his exciting fight, his spirits seemed to improve over the following day, as he promised big things to come in the new year.
