Frankie Edgar took a short-notice main event fight against Korean Zombie in the main event UFC Busan and it did not go his way. He ended up losing by first-round TKO where the future UFC Hall of Famer had limited to no success in the fight.
Yet, Edgar says he has no regrets about taking the fight against Zombie, where he says it made him depressed after.
“It was something I did,” Edgar told MMA Fighting. “You can’t go back and dwell on sh*t you can’t change anyways. No regrets for me. Obviously, I wanted a different outcome, but I took the opportunity. It didn’t go my way. Sh*t happens, but those are the breaks. I was definitely depressed for a little bit, a little down on myself, but you move on. What else are you going to do?”
For Frankie Edgar, there is nothing he can do but give credit to Chan Sung Jung for his performance.
“He caught me with a good shot,” he said. “I’m sure I’ll look at it and I’ll be a little critical of something I did. But he’s on a tear,” Edgar said. “He’s been putting dudes away for a long time. He got me with a good shot. I did my best to stand there as long as I could, but it’s the way it went.”
Not only did he lose the fight, but Edgar says he broke his orbital in the fight so he will now have to let it heal.
“I broke my orbital,” Edgar said. “Nothing super bad, no surgery. Just six weeks to heal and I’m good to go.”
Once he is healthy, “The Answer” says he will finally make the move to bantamweight and is committed to 135 pounds. Even though he bypassed the opportunity to fight Cory Sandhagen.
