Alex Caceres is removing the inside leg kick from any and all future attacks.
This way, the former "Ultimate Fighter" won't have to worry about losing a decision when his opponent "milks" a nut shot, like he claims Edwin Figueroa did in their bantamweight brawl at UFC 143 last Saturday night in Las Vegas.
"Bruce Leeroy" vents to Sherdog.com:
"To be honest with you, I don't know what the hell was going on in that fight. I was pretty surprised that any of that happened. I was aware of the low blows I delivered and I have to admit, the first and second low blow did not land in his crotch. I believe he was milking it a little bit. I mean, he even admitted it a little bit, saying that the second one wasn't even a low blow, it was vibrations from the low kick that hurt his groin. I was surprised because I never heard of a two-point deduction. Ever. Herb Dean did warn me after the first time but then again I thought it was a glancing blow, it wasn't as bad as they were making it out to seem. It's pretty disappointing, it's pretty frustrating, but the decision's made. What I can do is just get back in the gym and never throw inside leg kicks again because apparently, they're gonna milk it for all they got."
Caceres breaks down their fight, plus a whole lot more, after the jump.
