Scott Jorgensen Not Letting His Loss At UFC Fight Night 38 Get To Him
Posted by Joseph Lee on 06.07.2014

In an interview with MMA Junkie, flyweight Scott Jorgensen (14-9 MMA, 3-5 UFC) spoke about his loss to Jussier Formiga at UFC Fight Night 38 and how he won't let it affect his upcoming UFC Fight Night 42 bout with Danny Martinez (16-5 MMA, 0-1 UFC) tonight. The two will fight on the FOX Sports 1 preliminary card before the main card on the same channel. It airs from the Tingley Coliseum in Albuquerque, New Mexico. During the Jorgensen/Formiga fight, Formiga accidentally struck Jorgensen's chin with his head, dazing him. Formiga locked in a rear naked choke and Jorgensen had to tap out.

On appealing the result: "All I wanted was a rematch. You can say it's on my record, but I don't really care. I wanted the rematch. The Brazilian commission said because the referee failed to make a call, they weren't going to overturn it, which in my opinion is quite [expletive]. That's the whole reason the appeal process is there: checks and balances. From then on, I knew I wasn't going to get my immediate rematch."

On putting the loss behind him: "I don't let it get to me. Every time we step in that cage, every round is a whole new fight. It doesn't matter what happened the round before. You can forget that immediately. You have the next round to improve or continue doing what you were doing. I know I fight killers. I don't pick my opponents. I've never asked for a easy guy. I've always wanted to fight the best in the world, and I have, and that's going to result in losses. … Going into this fight, it doesn't matter. Everyone talks about it. They're like, ‘Oh, Jorgensen has lost it.' I haven't lost it. I just hit a rough patch. Everybody hits a rough patch in their career, and with the caliber of fighters that I've fought in the past, this is nothing."

On fighting Martinez: "If you're in the UFC, you're a tough guy, and I've learned that the hard way a couple of times, overlooking guys. Danny has got a lot of fights, even more than me, but no amount of experience will put you up against what I've faced inside the UFC and the WEC. He hasn't shined on a big stage. He's beaten mediocre guys throughout his career. He's lost the big fights that count."
