Ulysses Gomez Says He Doesn’t Want to Fight Hometown Heroes after UFC on FUEL TV 7 Loss

February 19, 2013 | Posted by Jeremy Thomas

Ulysses Gomez recently spoke with MMAjunkie about his unanimous decision loss to Phil Harris at UFC on FUEL TV 7. Check out the highlights:

On his performance against Phil Harris: “The first round, I out-struck him almost three to one. I landed like 20-some strikes and 15 or 16 leg kicks. He got six punches. That was clearly my best round. If you ask anybody, they all said they had me winning that round, but none of the judges gave me that round. So if that was my best round, and nobody gave me that round, I don’t understand.”

On Harris’ offense during the fight: “If you look at the fight, more often than not, he was coming forward, but there was a good portion of the fight where I was backing him up, as well.”

On fans who disagreed with the call: “They kind of gave me that, ‘I’m glad he won, but he didn’t win.'”

On the decision going against him: “You can get a fair shake, and if I’d finished the fight, I would have never had this conversation in the first place. But I don’t think I got the best shake in that situation. I would love to fight in London again, just not against an English guy.”

On possibly getting cut by UFC: “I understand I’m 0-2, so if I get cut, I understand. I’ve had two chances in the UFC to win, and if they want to give Darrell Montague a chance, then hey, I had my chance. I can’t complain. But if they give me one more fight, I’m definitely not going to lose. And I’m definitely not going to win a decision.”
