Frankie Edgar is disappointed after his knockout loss to Chris Gutierrez. Edgar gave his best, he tried to win, but it wasn't enough. “Obviously heartbroken,” Edgar said on his podcast Champ and the Tramp, as quoted by mmafighting.com “No way that’s how I wanted to go.
But that’s the way it goes. “You saw [the knockout], everybody saw it. It f****** sucks but how can I complain to be honest. People were cheering my name the whole time, before, during, after. I know I work hard to get where I got.
Like f****** hard, very hard. I sacrificed a lot my whole life. I put my all into my athletic career since day one but who the f*** am I to complain? There’s people out there that work hard and they just make it by. I know both sides of that.
I’m just trying to be grateful for what I accomplished. Grateful for the ride I had”.
Edgar on his kids
What particularly hurt him was the fact that his daughter was watching the match. Edgar is sad because she was able to witness his defeat, but the UFC is like that and nothing can be done about it.
“I didn’t want my kids to see me go out that way,” Edgar said. “My family there, all that stuff. Cause they’ve got to go deal with it, too. “My kids are old enough now where kids are scumbags.
I’m not going to say where, who or which kid but one of my kids does something in their group and one of the group kids starts taking s***, saying this and that. Either that kid’s being a young scumbag kid or his parents don’t teach him no f****** manners. Whatever, they’re kids in the end but it sucks my kids got to deal with it”.
