    That's cool, glad he lost but at least he seems to have learned something plus huge props to Justin for making the dude feel better about the loss.

    Maybe easy to say in retrospect, but you can sure tell who won the fight and who lost just by looking at the photo.

    Ok if Vick has shown his real self than I can respect the provocative shut talking promotion. Unfortunately it backfired on him this time. Perhaps it’ll teach him a bit about karma.

    He is backpedaling too much imo.

    Show a little more integrity or dedication to that persona. "Settling the beef" is one thing but he is all "Please, please I did not mean it. I am a nice guy."

    He is making sure he will never be able to sell a fight with trash talk again. Not that he would have become a draw anyway but it sure created interest for this one.

    why do people always cut guys slack for being gracious losers? everyone but complete lunatics like Ronda and Joanna are gracious in defeat. it's hard to talk shit after getting smashed, but somehow, Joanna found a way.

    He buries his persona. People want someone genuine good or bad. Adopting shit-talking then admitting it was a fraud to sell a fight is a good way to permanently stunt your earnings. At this point, he'd have to evolve into a destroyer of worlds to become a draw.

    Now that's a true sportsman. Great stuff James. You have plenty of time ahead of you to reach the top.

    No shit he’s humble.

    He talked shit the whole lead up until he got slept.

    Gathje is p4p for the most exciting fighter in the ufc right now

    He could have said something along the lines that they had beef, but the perks of being a fighter is that you can get in the cage and settle that, even if you lose. The embarrassment must be gnarling.
    I think his next fight will be very telling about his mental status. He's been slept before, but this one was a very dramatic and damaging ko (not that there's such a thing as non-damaging ko's), with a lot of build-up and an equally proportionate fall down.

    Gaethje is an all time team violence guy at this point. He's like Vale Tudo dudes in the modern era. Just a warrior.
