The UFC Fight Night 131 event kicked off with a bang on Friday night, as Jarred Brooks knocked himself out in a freak accident, leading to a TKO loss to Jose Torres in the opening bout of the evening.
Following the bout, which had the social media world buzzing due to the bizarre nature of the finish, Brooks posted a tweet telling Torres that he was lucky he knocked himself out.
“Your lucky that I knocked myself out and you didn’t do sh*t to me that whole fight,” wrote Brooks in a tweet that he ended up deleting soon after posting it last night. “Just seen your after-fight interview … well played. But, if we run that sh*t back, I beat you 9 times-out-of 10, and the only time you do is me KO’ing myself!”
After cooling off a bit, Brooks deleted the tweet and posted a more professional reaction in a new tweet that still stands on his official Twitter feed.
“Respect though,” wrote Brooks in the second tweet. “At the end of the day, [I] just want to run it back.”
