When the 37-years-old Brazilian found out what he had done to his adversary, he felt sick to his stomach.
“When the fight was over and he got back up his face was already swollen, and that’s something unusual,” Alexandre told MMA Fighting.
“I had a feeling that it wasn’t 100 percent. I left the ring and went backstage to see the doctor, he was in a different room, but I decided not to get in there because there was too many people out there. When they brought a stretcher, I knew something serious had happened.”
“The next day I heard that he had a long surgery. I hate that, man,” Alexandre said. “I’m doing my job there, to go in there and win. I know we can get hurt, but nothing that serious. I was sad because that’s his job and I don’t wish that to anyone.”
