ok so first off thanks everyone for the well wishes and support with the recent fight. Im super happy to finally be amongst the very best in the sport and can say everyone in and around the show did thier job phenomenally. Thar aside there is a once in a life time type convergence of circumstances that needs to be address that cost me a lotta money..

leading up to the fight im thinking ok well with the exception of mike pyle im probably the most dynamic submission guy on the card so i have a great chance of getting sub of the night.. after his fight ended in a triangle i was like ok i gotta do as much damage as possible and then look to hit something when ricardo was dazzed... I manage to finish the fight and the crowd showed me more than a little bit of love which is a nice change as my entire fight career i have always been the AWAY team and in many cases the villain. Now perhaps its a side effect of not having a ton of money but once i get some my hoarding instict kicked in.. i did my post fight medicals a few interviews got changed and started walking back to the hotel with my cheques. When i have cash you wont see men hanging out i gotta stash that somewhere and once thats done i cant leave it in the hotel alone so i was in my room no later than 7pm vancouver time at the expense of missing the other fights.. "I did see carlos condit and rory macdonald which was a great go so i figured fight of the night had to be that" but given the main card i was like DAMN i now am guaranteeed 85k bonus cause these guys are mostly bangers... ahh yeah!!!!

up comes mirko cro-cop and pat barry I had ZERO fear this fight would end in a submission so it wasnt event on my radar in terms of costing me this cash heheh .. but it just goes to show this thing is themost dynamic sport in the world.. mirko takes 2 knock downs and comes back to do two things totally out of character 1- submit an opponent and 2- take the mic and start talking... god damn!!!!!! right there my heart broke starting to think this man may have really got sub of the night...

in terms of technical application ill leave that up to the masses to decide but mirko is a legend in the sport and win lose or draw has put on some of the best fights ever so while i cant say im glad he took the CASH i can say if it had to be someone its not terrible that it was him :)

im resting up some pre fight injuries and back on the grind asap..
thanks people

claude patrick

p.s
please forgive my complete dissregard for spellcheck.

Yep.

Mirko's choke wasn't the prettiest in the world, but it was Mirko fucking Cro Cop choking a dude out AND he called out the boss on the mic after the fight.  Zuffa pretty much had to give him the sub of the night.  Hopefully, they threw a little something extra your way as well in the form of one of their infamous 'locker room' bonuses.

 Congrats on the win Claude!  Even though the perfect storm may have cost you the bonus check this time, I'm sure there'll be a couple more in your future! 

Very impressive performance by the way.  I was there live and it was great to see at least one Canadian get a W.

Really good performance, glad to see you get the W in the UFC. haha, Crocop getting sub of the night, who would have guessed? Regardless, I know I was looking like a total dork doing fist pumps in the air after he subbed Pat.

Enjoyed your post-fight interview with Ariel as well. Would LOVE to see you vs Stun Gun.

Anyone associated with Carlos Newton deserves much love.

Glad to see you win Claude, and thanks for posting your thoughts on here. Looking forward to your next fight. Technically speaking, yours was the better submission. But circumstances be damned, you can't blame Mirko getting it..that fight may even end up being his Swan Song.

Keep it up and I'm sure you'll snag it sooner or later. All the best and good luck!

Barry was like a gold fish lifting his head for air, only to have Mirko reach down and take the gift. The best part was how Barry tried to hold his breath and not even bother reaching for the hand on the TOP not even back, of his head.
How Kyle or you didn’t get it is a disgrace.

dana should have doubled up, I'm sure the UFC bank account could have covered it...

It was complete BS that Mirko got SOTN.
IF he had pulled off a nice submission or even subbed a guy known to have some sort of OK ground game, I could see that.
But to sub another kickboxer who has NO ground game?

Plus there probably fights CroCop has been paid more than what you and Mike have made in your entire careers.

I would have liked to see Pyle or you get it.
