After being taken out by Dan Ige in just 20 seconds, Gavin Tucker has shared out a statement regarding the defeat.

Tucker had his three-fight winning streak halted by Ige, who quickly blasted him with a right-hand at UFC Vegas 21. Since then, the 34-year-old featherweight posted the comments below.

I don’t know much, but I know for sure we don’t get what we don’t go after. I went after it. But I lunged after it,..and in a straight line.
Small mistakes, big consequences.
Saturday night I walked onto a well timed right hand and experienced my first KO loss. I’m not gonna hide from it or downplay it. I’m heartbroken. But I can’t change what happened. I can only control how I move forward. Regretfully I didn’t get to show the work or represent the efforts and strides made from this great team. But I’ll create new opportunities and get back to business as soon as things are in order to do so.
Thanks to the ufc and my opponent for the opportunity.
Thanks to this team for the work they do, and to Everyone for the support and messages. My main goal for these next weeks of adjustment is to show strength in character, acceptance , and response.
The response will be appropriate. Time to walk in the dark for a while

With the loss, Tucker’s record fell to 13-2.
