Make no bones about it, fighters are a tough, tough breed of human being.
Any person who decides to tackle another individual head on in a contest - where the aim is to either knockout, tap-out or simply get your fist/legs to hit your opponent more than they hit you - has every right to hold themselves in a certain way.
Some call it confidence. Others call it arrogance. Either way, without this ingredient you can almost guarantee that a fighter won't be well equipped for the battle at hand.
But, what happens if a confident/arrogant fighter loses this aforementioned showdown?
Well, sometimes the facade is dropped and a fighter is forced to evaluate their loss whilst humbly congratulating the victor. How sportsmanlike.
Unfortunately, this isn't always the case and there has been many an occasion when a recently outclassed fighter simply can't admit to their own failings, and therefore offers up an explanation as to why things didn't go their way on the night.
