    yeah i agree with him if the guy isn't knocked the f*** out. Joe Rogan used to interview people after they were knocked out, and then they all started becoming memes because they were saying stupid stuff and not themselves so he swore he would stop doing it.

    You don’t need to like or deslike. The sport is not just made by to people. It’s owned by someone, who sets the rules. You don’t like, make up your own MMA setting. Otherwise, do as you are told, and contracted. You should be fired for insubordination. It is not your will. Douche

    I agree with this 100%! Obviously use your best judgement on how the fighter lost but this was done in a very respectful manner and I see absolutely nothing wrong with his message! God Bless The World!

  • Austinstarr79

    Strong, serious, honest. What else to be an excellent atlete?

  • rlmz00

    Maybe it's because he's a millennial, he believes in participation trophies.

    Nobody's talking about how Buckley got sent into outer space. Probably not a good idea to put a guy on a mic that just got done with a conversation with James Vick 💯

  • Droneggiando

    Italian style my friends! Grande Alessio!!!!

  • ram1

    Sounds like he would like participation trophies too and bonuses if you are knocked out in incredible fashion smh

    Honestly didn't know who he was as he was the supposed "stepping stone", but he after this you can only have respect for the man. I hope can get some wins, I will definitely be curious to see him again.

    Hell ya he's right.

  • PhotonGangLol

    They don’t interview the loser cuz slurring bloody bashed faced dudes isn’t a good look for abc/espn. Buckley wasn’t too bad but he did get knocked out so you never know plus it’s just the general rule of thumb out of respect for the losing fighter. His hearts in the right place but I don’t think he understands.

    It’s an entertainment business. The loser gets interviewed if it makes sense. If ur watching a movie do u think the director is gonna put an actor on the scene that no ones cares about in the big picture of things...No. but Jon Jones vs chael sonnen, both interviewed for obvious reasons. And this has happened thousands of fights. But finally I would say it’s weird they didn’t interview Buckley. He does have a lot of hype , or did... maybe he was still messed up.

  • D.A. S.
    D.A. S.

    Back in the day, the press interviewed UFC fighters who lost too - on the panel. All at once , winners and losers would be seated.

      @Jarek Chlebicki They aren't performers aren't actors, are athlete. No disrespect to the media. You probably like the showoff prima donna trash talkers. Fighting it's another thing.

    • Jarek Chlebicki
      Jarek Chlebicki

      @Sol Invictus lol As a performer and a athlete it’s your job to talk to media. He disrespected the media by leaving the podium . Wasted everyone’s time A guy just lost , not one athlete wants to be interviewed after a loss Get with the times bud , fight the battles that are worth fighting

    • Sol Invictus
      Sol Invictus

      @Jarek Chlebicki So someone respectfull as Kabib validate you speach according to you?...nope.

    • Jarek Chlebicki
      Jarek Chlebicki

      Nah , deff someone who lost more big fights than won them

    • Sol Invictus

  • HyperGnar

    This guys an idiot! You honestly think the loser of a fight, a man who just got embarrassed on national television, and who is mentally down and emotional after a knockout wants to be interviewed? Typical delusional guy that believes so strongly in what hes saying and with so much passion that it causes other people to follow him. Shut your mouth, sit down and celebrate the win. Damn!

    You many simps buying into his nonsense. Pretending he's this stand up guy when he's only bitter because nobody ever wanted to interview him in his last 3 previous fights.

  • Ser24870

    You can’t interview the loser. Imagine a salty loser setting around waiting for an interview and then they snap from hearing some bs. Maybe at the end of the entire PPV but not right after the fight. Too many meat heads that would try to fight again

  • Nacer Ouafa

    They used to do that back in the days..


    I appreciate the sentiment but he just KTFO Buckley with that head kick. They don’t have time for him to recover and I’m sure he was making his way to the hospital after that anyways. Honorable guy. Wrong moment to be so honorable IMO. Not gloating after you KO the guy who probably gets KO OTY in 2020 is enough.

    Thank you for your good sportsmanship, Alessio. You're absolutely right. I frequently have to turn off the sound on my TV when I'm watching because the know-it-all commentators (you know who you are) during the fights are constantly showing bias by talking up their favorite fighters and playing down the ones they don't prefer. Sometimes the judges listen and make bad decisions on the outcome because of the commentators. All of the fighters deserve respect. Sometimes I feel that the UFC and fans dishonor them. And it doesn't sit well with me.
