When Jarred Brooks attempted to slam Jose Torres into the canvas at UFC Utica, no-one — least of all Brooks himself — expected the moment to end with Brooks knocking himself out. But, because mixed martial arts is the sport it is, that’s exactly what happened.
But while it’s a memorable and exciting way for Torres to make his UFC debut, Brooks is clearly less than impressed with how the contest ended.

Today, a day after the wacky finish, Brooks took to his social media to blast Torres’ ability and the manner in which the fight ended.
“Your[sic] lucky that I knocked myself out and you didn’t do shit to me that whole fight,” Brooks wrote on Twitter. “Just seen your after fight interview well played but if we run that shit back I beat you 9 times out of 10 and the only time you do is me kOing my self!”

Shit happens coming for that strap all summer fall winter time to show people what I’m capable of . Jose did not knock me out I finished myself . I was beating his ass and would have won the rest of that fight for sure like I was outstriking him out wrestling him beating him in every asset of mma. Unfortunately I defeated myself but I’ll be back stronger and better than ever
