Vitor Belfort issues statement on his loss to Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza at UFC 198


Vitor Belfort lost to Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza in the co-main event of UFC 198. Following the fight, Belfort took to Facebook to comment on the fight:

“Saturday was a day that I went to work but didn’t work. Have you ever had that feeling? I learned through my life that we can’t stop learning, and the lesson I take from my fight Saturday is: don’t wait too much for the moment because if it doesn’t come and you don’t go for it, nothing will happen. I didn’t in my fight, I was focused in the defense and lost my main quality: the attack. If I could leave my learning here to you, that cost me a bitter defeat, is don’t wait for the moment to come, but go after it with the confident that you will conquer it. Merits to my opponent.”

Belfort (25-12) is on a one-fight losing streak. In his last six bouts, he is 4-2.
