Teruto Ishihara spoke following his win over Rolando Dy at UFC Fight Night 117, saying he doesn’t think Dy’s groin kicks were intentional. Ishihara spoke through his translater (via MMAjunkie) about the kicks he suffered, which lost Dy an important point in the third round.

“The first was OK, but the (third) one really affected me,” Ishihara said. “I’m a fighter, so I don’t think it was intentional at all.”

If not for the one-point docking, Ishihara vs. Dy would have ended in a majority draw.
