Gunnar Nelson: ”Största misstaget i matchen”

Gunnar Nelson sade efter huvudmatchen mot Santiago Ponzinibbio att han borde ha brutit matchen för att återhämta sig från ett finger i ögat.

Det dröjde bara en minut och 22 sekunder för Santiago Ponzinibbio att avsluta Gunnar Nelson i deras huvudmatch på UFC Fight Night 113: Nelson vs. Ponzinibbio.

Efter matchen talade Nelson med media och påpekade att han såg två motståndare strax innan knockouten.

Gunnar Nelson berättar

“I’m kicking myself in the head for not stopping the fight, I should have stopped the fight, recovered, and carried on from there.” – sa Nelson till MMAjunkie.

Nelson själv trodde att han hade skakat Ponzinibbio, hans största misstag i matchen.

“Because I caught him, I thought I had him on the run and I could finish the fight,” sa Nelson. “I think that was the biggest mistake in this fight.”

“I’m not saying that if I didn’t get caught by it (finger i ögat) that I would have seen the shot coming. It is what it is. Even then, I was seeing double, and I was able to land a few more shots. But then he catches me with a nice right hand.”

Detta blev en lärofylld läxa för Nelson, som tar med sig alla lärdomar till kommande match.

“Obviously, I have to be more careful,” sa Nelson. “I got caught with a punch that I should have seen coming. I don’t like to make excuses, but this is the truth, how I feel, anyway. I should have stopped the fight when I got poked. I was seeing two Ponzinibbios in front of me, and it was like that until I remember standing up and the fight was over.”
