UFC middleweight Uriah Hall took to his Instagram account to address his critics after he lost to Robert Whittaker at UFC 193 this past weekend. He posted this on Instagram:

“I never lose I either win or I learn. it bugs me how people think these days. First off rob is a stud the dude is legit but before that fight started I knew I lost n I still stepped in. my body already shut down from 4 fights this year I didn’t even take time off to heal for the 5th .. I know I underperform the whole time trying to figure something out I started the fight exhausted but hey … I don’t bitch about it but some of you would not know  that right !? Smh I said it before and I’ll say it again my “fans” are my friends and family the people I don’t have to explain myself to.”
