Frankie Edgar came up short in title fight versus UFC Featherweight champion – Max Holloway, last Saturday night (July 27) at UFC 240 in Edmonton, Canada.
Edgar shows respect for “Blessed” as a person and thinks that will manage to comeback:
“I took a day to travel home and sulk in my sorrows and while my heart is still broken I’m still proud of my performance,” wrote Edgar on Instagram.
“I will never be ok with losing but I take solace into losing to a man like Max, a true champion that represents himself, his family, and our sport like no other. I can take this loss like a man and show my children that failing and getting knocked down is ok just as long as we get back to our feet to fight again.”
“I’m far from done but right now I just want to enjoy my family. Thanks to my team for always having me prepared to the fullest, getting ready for Max was a daunting task but yet they had me ready,” he added.
“Thank you to all the fans for their outpouring of love and support through out my career. And special thanks to my Family and my Wife for being my backbone and letting me know what is truly important in this life of mine. Till the next time…”
