He is not happy…
- Roger Bowling recently spoke about his UFC Fight Night 27 no contest with Abel Trujillo. Here are the highlights…
On His Issues With Abel Trujillo: "I don't know what his problem was," Bowling told MMAjunkie.com Radio. "I think, honestly, he was looking for a way out of the fight. I was clearly dominating him – wrestling, jiujitsu, standup. I was winning everywhere. He was fading and I think he was searching for anything at that point. After the fight, I don't know what words were said. We were getting at each other about it being illegal and stopping the fight. I told him we're definitely doing it again – that's what came out of my mouth."
On Being Upset Over Trujillo's Actions in The Fight: "You saw the tape – he kneed me right in the chin and followed it up with a sucker punch and cut me on my right eye," Bowling said. "I get so mad when I watch it – I have so much hate in my heart for him. I hope I'm standing across from him again, because I'll put his head into the third row – I promise."
Bowling Feels it Was Intentional: "Not only was it illegal, I think it was intentional," he said. "Then he followed it up with the sucker punch. I don't know how much more wrong you can be than that. He knows what he did, and he knows why he did it. He was looking to do anything at any cost – he knew he was losing, and he knew I was dominating him, just like will happen in the rematch. I watch the tape, I shake I get so mad. I've never had so much hate for someone in my life. I respect the sport. But I have nothing but hate for him, and no respect at all."
