Aljamain Sterling wasn’t happy at all with his last fight.

‘Funkmaster’ At Fury Pro Grappling

And no, we’re not talking about his title loss to Sean O’Malley at UFC 292. Most recently, the former UFC Bantamweight Champion would return to the grappling scene a second time this year when he met Kevin Dantzler at Fury Pro Grappling 8 on Saturday.

Unfortunately, things didn’t go his way as Sterling ultimately lost on the scorecards after going the distance with Dantzler. But, Aljo definitely had his moments in the match, with one being an armbar evasion for the ages. 

‘What The F*ck Did He Do?

Following the fight, Sterling made it loud and clear that he disagreed with the result.

“I don’t even know how they score that,” Sterling said in his post-fight interview. “Another man can’t drag his ass cheeks on the mat and think that’s a win, doing absolutely nothing. I guarantee you, if that was a street fight, my man would never do that shit.”

“Why are we turning the sport into some type of weird a weird spectacle where you could win a match off of your back doing absolutely nothing? If I did nothing, what the f*ck did he do?”

Sterling Digs Into ‘Disgraceful’ Dantzler

Sterling had no love for Dantzler or the less-than-spectacular game-plan he stuck to in their match.

“I’m just saying, I want to have a fun match,” Sterling continued. “I told you guys beforehand, I’m trying to get in his head a little bit. Maybe he’ll engage, pull guard from standing up. Don’t just start the match on your butt. That should be deducted a point right out of the gate. Am I wrong? Am I wrong?

“Let another man drag you by your ankles in front of your loved ones and friends because that is a disgrace!
