"I took this fight with 2 weeks to prepare and I truly felt that I would be ready. Would it have been different with a full camp? I'll probably never know. I am very disappointed with my performance and have a LOT to work on when I get home. I spoke with Joe Silva from the UFC and he told me I would have at least one more chance and next time I would have the proper time to prepare. For that I am happy, but I still cant believe how bad that fight was for me. I have 4 staples in my head and some bruising, but the real pain deeper. Ill be back to the gym as soon as I can to work out what went wrong and to prepare to come back stronger. For those that support me, I am very sorry for this performance. It wasn't deserving of any support."
Former TUF 5 contestant and unofficial cake boss Gabe Ruediger is expected to get one more chance to prove he belongs in the UFC after getting dominated by Joe Lauzon at UFC 118 last Saturday night (Aug. 28) in Boston. "Godzilla" stepped up on short notice to replace the injured Terry Etim and hopes to have a better performance in his next fight. Anyone think he's got the goods? Or can we expect more of the same his next time out?
