James Vicks Calls UFC Lincoln The ‘Worst Night Of His Life’
James Vick was confident coming into his fight last night and coughed months of trash talk about his opponent, but former WSOF lightweight champion Justin Gaethje put Vick to sleep in less than 90 seconds via brutal one punch KO in the main event of UFC Fight Night 135 from Lincoln Nebraska.
Earlier today, Vick issues a classy statement where he discussed his loss and offered some complimentary words to Justin Gaethje:
”Worst night of my life last night,” Vick wrote. “Thank you Justin Gaethje for the opportunity. Though confident in myself, I did always respect you. I said what I said to get and promote the fight. You are a class act and I do appreciate your kind words last night. I have no excuses. I was in shape, healthy and confident. I blew it.”
”For all those that believed in me and support me, I am truly sorry,” he continued. “I will go back and keep training and loving this life of being a fighter and a martial artist. This is the life I have chose and I guess this comes with the territory. Thanks to all my friends, family and teammates for the support and thank you UFC for the opportunity.”
After the loss, James Vick four fight win-streak comes to an end and now 13-2 overall. With the win, Gaethje snapped his two-fight skid.
