“Every great fighter I have studied has had a close fight where they looked off. Last night was one of those nights for me.. What I’ve learned is that It’s apart of the process, it’s apart of learning and getting better. Sometimes life knocks you on your ass and throws you a curveball. It’s all about how you react in that moment. You either find a way to overcome it or you quit. I’ll die trying to over come it every time. No quit in me ”

Eblen is regarded as the best middleweight MMA fighter outside of the UFC but his reputation took a bit of a hit on Saturday.
