“It couldn’t have been worse." - Fabio Maldonado
- Fabio Maldonado recently spoke about his loss to Stipe Miocic. Here are the highlights…
On His Loss to Stipe Miocic: "That was the worst result possible. I lost in the worst way possible. Horrible. Horrible performance. I have no excuses. If I got tired after four or five rounds, I could blame the fact that I only trained two weeks for this fight, but that was not the case. It couldn't have been worse."
On His Regrets: "I should have listened to my corners better," he said. "They said ‘(Miocic) traded punches with Roy Nelson, he will trade punches with you,' but I don't know what I was thinking. I have no excuses. Miocic landed one right hand that caught me, and it was really hard. I wanted to catch him in the beginning of the fight, but I should have fought more patiently. I don't regret taking the fight. I regret fighting the way I fought," he continued. "I could have done better, fighting smarter. I don't know what I was thinking. I wanted to show that I was calm and he caught me."
On What's Next: "I have to think about what I'm going to do now," he said. "I want to train in the United States now. My boxing is outdated if you compare it to boxers. I will probably go to Colorado or Miami to work on my boxing and wrestling. Maybe I'll train boxing in one gym and wrestling in other place. I'm still thinking about it."
