Rousimar “Toquinho” Palhares lost to Alan Belcher last Saturday, at UFC on FOX 3, in New Jersey, United States. Brazilian Top Team athlete, Palhares was defeated by TKO on the last seconds of the first round, and talked about the bout’s outcome on his Twitter. Humble as always, he recognized his opponent’s superiority on the fight.
“Yesterday my opponent was better. Now I’ll do what I always do and I’ll train to be happy again”, wrote Palhares.
The defeat to Belcher put an end to the good phase the Brazilian has been going through. He came from a 30win streak and had his eyes on the middleweight title.
