Josh Thomson: I got the win, but I hate fighting like thatPosted on March 4, 2012, 12:22 PM by Joey Santosus
Former Strikeforce Lightweight Champion Josh Thomson, who returned from a 15-month layoff to defeat K.J. Noons in Ohio, looks back on the match-up and discusses his fighting future. Thomson expresses disappointment in his performance, explaining that he "hates fighting like that," but promises that he will not let his fans down in his next outing.
"I'm very disappointed in my performance. We tried something new for this camp, I had a long camp, 12-weeks - plenty of time to get in shape. The 15-months off, coming back, I got staph twice, so that was two weeks of my camp gone. I also got sick in the middle of that, and I just couldn't train as hard as I needed to. ... I got the win, but I hate fighting like that. It disappoints me that people boo. It's the entertainment business - that's not the way I like to win. ... There's no excuse, it was a sh-t fight."
