After taking to Twitter to accuse Vinny Magalhaes of turning their recent UFC 152 bout into a “grappling match”, Igor Pokrajac has apologized for the comments he made shortly after the fight.

Speaking via his official Twitter account once again, Pokrajac stated:

Sorry to all MMA fans on my fast tweet after the fight, was [pissed] off because of my mistake i lost the fight. Vinny did his best#UFC 152

I don’t show anything I was prepared for, next fight I will do my best for all UFC and MMA fans. thank you all on big support.

Pokrajac was submitted by Magalhaes in round two, after the Croatian fighter took the renowned jiu-jitsu competitor to the mat and was quickly caught in an armbar.

The accomplished striker then proceeded to post on Twitter:

If I wanted to do a grappling match I would go on a grappling tournament , this is MMA and UFC fans want a fight

Speaking with Full Contact Fighter, Magalhaes relayed that although he strongly disagreed with Pokrajac’s criticisms, he didn’t want to see people attacking his recent opponent while “the guy’s down.”

The loss ended a three fight win streak for the 33 year-old Pokrajac.
