Las Vegas, NV – UFC bantamweight Mana Martinez may have gotten the victory over Brandon Davis at UFC Vegas 62 on Saturday night, but he wasn’t very happy with his performance.
“Feel great. Little bit disappointed with myself and my performance, but a win’s a win. I’ll take it,” Martinez told Cageside Press among other media at his post-fight scrum.
At the end of the second round Martinez had Davis hurt and may have finished the fight then had he not run out of time.
“I think I needed about 3 to 5 more seconds and Herb would have called that. I had him hurt so many times and for me not to finish him is just kind of disappointing. But it’s something I’ve got to work on. I’m going to keep improving my game and I’ll be back,” Martinez said.
Davis proved to be a very tough out, but Martinez said he expected that from his opponent.
“I figured he’d be tough like that. Like I mentioned he’s a down south boy. Mississippi, Louisiana, Florida, Texas all them boys are tough man. We come to scrap every time,” he said.
With no finish the fight went to the judges and one judge in particular made Martinez pretty nervous.
“When they said the final judge Tony Weeks….and of course as we know that’s a boxing judge, so I was like ‘Am I really about to get f*cked by a boxing judge” pause. Thank God it went my way, shoutout Tony Weeks, but he definitely seen the fight the proper way and with the knockdowns I had and how many times I had him hurt,” Martinez said.
“I don’t know who the other two judges were, but shout out Tony Weeks.”
