‘Bruce Leeroy’ Believes The UFC Wanted Him To Lose To Pettis Last Weekend

“I feel like they wanted him to beat me, keep the train going. I think they thought he might out-strike me and beat me up and what not. I didn’t mind. I feel like that’s how it is with every fight. They put me in there to lose. That’s not a big deal, I just keep surprising people then.”

Alex Cacares, better known as, ‘Bruce Leeroy’, put on a fantastic performance in the UFC on FOX Sports 1 Preliminary Card Special last Saturday against undefeated prospect, Sergio Pettis.

His victory saw him receive double bonuses in the form of $50k for ‘Fight of the Night’ and $50k for ‘Submission of the Night’.

Still though, despite his success, the UFC bantamweight told Ariel Helwani that he believes he was sent out to lose.
