Following his loss to Ricardo Romero at this past weekend's UFC 116 event, Seth Petruzelli (12-5 MMA, 0-3 UFC) has received hundreds of social-media messages that raved about his performance.
But he spoke to MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) while sitting in a soon-to-depart plane because he read that UFC president Dana White handed out extra bonus checks after the event.
He wanted to know if he was on the list.
"It would really help out," said Petruzelli, who is unsure if he'll get another UFC fight.
"I guess I just punched myself out," Petruzelli said.
Petruzelli knocked Romero down in the second frame and scored a cut, but he didn't have the gas to engage in a grappling war and got caught in an armbar midway through the round.
The colorfully maned fighter doesn't want to make any excuses for the fight and said he should have been in better shape.
"I just got lazy on the bottom for 10 seconds and got caught," Petruzelli said. "I could have got out of that submission. I was just tired."
