Backstage interview

13 Nov, 2016

UFC releases an interview of Alvarez backstage at UFC 205 after his defeat by McGregor.

It was very loud in there. It was hard for me to hear my corner. I heard a couple of things but it was hard to hear and communicate with my coaches. [More than his power] it was speed…The first time I was dropped. I remember being on my butt and thinking, ‘Wow that was fast’. I’ve been there before. I pretty much get my composure and get back up. The speed and timing were very good. You can tell he’s got years of boxing behind him…It was foolish [to not wrestle]. That was not my intention going into that fight. It was stupid and I paid for it..I’ll never define myself by a win, or by a loss…[Conor’s achievement] is incredible. He did a great job. My hat’s off to him and he continues to do a great job for the sport of MMA. [After this] I’m going to go and see my wife an kids and hang out.
