Walker Johnny Silva Barra de Souza was on a nine-fight win streak, and a candidate for a title-shot vs. light heavyweight champion Jon Jones, until he was TKOed in 127 seconds by Corey Anderson at UFC 244. Now Walker plans to prepare at Firas Zahabi's Tristar for his next fight, vs. Nikita Krylov at UFC on ESPN+ 28.

And during a recent interview with The Schmo, Walker pinned the loss to Anderson on his former coach.

”I don’t accept this loss because I can beat him,” said Walker, as transcribed by Ryan Harkness for MMA Mania. “I know that. But I had a little problem during the fight, fight week as well, before the fight some stress with my team. So I learned a lot and it’s not going to happen again.”

”I don’t train with my old coach anymore because the problem is with him. During fight week he stressed me out twice, and before the fight he almost hurt my shoulder because he don’t know how to hold the pad properly. We don’t match too well on fight week. For a long time I start having these, because we live together, about respect as well. Some things are not getting met. So now I have no coach and I’m trying to go to Tristar and look for a new coach and new experience and new guys. And I’m ready to restart again.”

”I’ll be ready. I’m going to train hard there, gonna learn as much as I can, I’m gonna beat Nikita Krylov. ... I don’t care what people think. I’m going to be the same guy, but better.”

“I’m gonna work in everything. Wrestling, jiu-jitsu, strike, box, everything that I can work. I always learn and improve myself every day. So I’ll be better and I’ll be back. Soon. The 14th of March. Brazil. My time to get the bonus of the night again.”

The stress from his coach caused him to try and showboat when he should have been fighting?

What’s wrong wirh the guy on the right? 

He's the noobs Ariel helwani. We live in a world where being good at your profession is not good enough to get recognised, but acting like a retard is.

Not the reporters fault just shows where we are as a society and what hope we have if we face a massive calamity, zero.

Another headcase bully. You can be a talented fighter and still not be good at fighting. The mental aspect is so ridiculously important. It’s why there are guys who are notorious killers in the gym but never seem to put it together when it really matters in the cage. Making good decisions under duress is what separates good from great.

So many great points in this thread:

 

 "Making good decisions under duress is what separates good from great."

 

100% agree!

 

"We live in a world where being good at your profession is not good enough to get recognised, but acting like a retard is."

 

The truth!!

The coach that helped him get that win streak is now at fault because of this one loss?  What's with him saying he doesn't accept the loss?  Lose with some grace, you fucking excuse making brazilian windbag.

I couldn't get past that intro of the video.

If you want to be a wrestling valet, call AEW.

Sounds retarded because English isn't his native language. He's more than likely using the word "stressed" improperly.

You have to love when the coach that helped get you in the UFC and was part of the win streak that put you in a position for a title run, gets thrown under the bus after one loss.
