Just want you all to know that we(MFS) respect the Gracie family for all they have done for this sport. I have seen alot of trash talk by forum members, saying that we were disrespectful before, during, and after the fight.
The camera's do not show us shaking hands with the gracie's and letting them know how much we respect their family.
They also do not show me introducing myself to Helio Gracie at the weigh-ins and letting him know how much we owe him for bringing the sport here to the U.S.
We are fully aware of the following the Gracie's have created for themselves, but booing a U.S. born farm boy when he is announced before he fights a guy who is still wearing a brazilian flag when he wins. That is showing no respect for "YOUR" American boy!!!
Thanks for all the support

I would like to thank all the fans that were supporting me for this fight against Matt Hughes. I want to thank 15,000 plus fans that showed up at the Staple Center and really made me feel welcome and hundreeds of thoughsands that purchased the PPV. I am very disapointed in the outcome of the fight. I did not train for a fight like that and want to appologize to the fans who expected more. Matt Hughes is a great champion and he was the better man that night, I give him all the credit. He was very humble in his victory and that shows a true champion.
I am going to take a little time off from training and spend with the family. BUT I WILL BE BACK TO FIGHTHTING BEFORE THEN END OF THE YEAR.
Thank you again for your support
