Sunday night in Las Vegas, Aljamain Sterling and Bryan Caraway stepped in the Octagon to settle their feud. Sterling was the one who initially called for a fight against Caraway, however it was Caraway who left the Octagon with the win.

The fight was a rather close one, with many scoring the bout in favor of Sterling, however the judges awarded Caraway the split decision win.

After the bout, Sterling took to Instagram to reflect on the first loss of his professional career.

I asked for a challenge and I got it. This journey is about fighting the best and trying to prove you can be the best. I lost tonight but I'm definitely not defeated. Hats off to Bryan and his team. I did everything I could to prepare for this moment and he was the better man tonight. I talked a lot of shit to motivate me to train hard to fight a tough dude. I made my bed and I'm ok with that. This is what we warriors sign up for. HEART ON OUR SLEEVE! This is my passion. This is what I love. And I truly believe I have what it takes to become a @UFC world champion! Heart of a lion with NO QUIT in me! Thank you all to my true supporters, family, and of course the fans! Whether you like me or not, I hope you all enjoyed the show! Love my team #SerraLongo baby!!!!
