VIDEO | Thiago Alves "Devastated" Over Last Nights Loss


“I was happy that I was able to pick him apart. That was the plan, but unfortunately in the last 48 seconds, I got caught. It’s devastating. But, it was out of my control — I know I did my best in every aspect. I was winning the fight after three rounds, I just made a mistake and paid for it. I feel now that I should have kept him standing up and [continued to beat him up]. I’m not sure about that late takedown. I don’t really know [how far this loss sets me back]. There is confusion in the weight class right now — just 48 seconds later and it could be a totally different picture. Next I’ll regroup, go back home and get better. I know I’m better than this, but unfortunately I got caught. That’s life.”

UFC on FX 2 went down last night from Sydney, Australia’s Allphones Arena. In the main event Martin Kampmann took a page out of the book of Tim Boetsch and stole victory from Thiago Alves with a last minute guillotine choke to force Alves to tap and secure victory in the third round.

In addition to the main event, Joseph Benavidez advanced in the flyweight tournament as did Demetrious Johnson (well, this was actually later announced a draw).
