Video: 'Emotional' Dustin Poirier 'let himself down' in submission loss to Korean Zombie at UFC on FUEL TV 3

"He was just as tough as I expected. I expected a good fight, I'm just upset with myself. When it got to the later rounds he hit me with some good shots, I think it was the fourth round? I was never completely out of it but when I came back to realizing what was going on I could have sat out. I was in the D'Arce position, I felt it, but I just didn't defend it right and I feel like I let myself down. I'm upset about that. I had a really long training camp. I put 100 percent of myself into the training camp. I'm trying not to get emotional, I just care so much and I let myself down. I deserved to win. My wife deserved for us to win. I felt like I was in the best shape ever, I just took some bad shots and made some mistakes. I'm gonna go back to the gym and work on it and come back and get a W."
