Igor Pokrajac Apologizes for Bitter Twitter Post After UFC 152 Loss
Sour grapes are not the food of choice among mixed martial art fans. That’s why they laid into light heavyweight Igor Pokrajac (Pictured) for complaining about his submission loss to Vinny Magalhaes at UFC 152.
Shortly after Saturday’s defeat, Pokrajac took to his Twitter to vent about his defeat to the Brazilian jiu jitsu specialist.
“If I wanted to do a grappling match I would go on a grappling tournament, this is MMA and UFC fans want a fight,” Pokrajac posted.
Ironically, it was Pokrajac who initiated the 2ndRound takedown against Magalhaes. Seconds later he found himself tapping out to a slick armbar submission.
After a couple of long days, it appears Pokrajac has finally gotten the bitter taste of defeat out of his mouth.
“Sorry to all MMA fans on my [last] tweet after the fight, was [pissed] off because of my mistake I lost the fight. Vinny did his best,” Pokrajac backpedaled Tuesday. “I didn’t show anything I was prepared for, next fight I will do my best for all UFC and MMA fans. thank you all on big support.”
If Pokrajac was disappointed in his performance, think about those who laid good money on the 2-to-1 odds-on favorite to spoil Magalhaes’ return to the Octagon.
gotta give him some credit for apologising and giving credit to vinny though, but yes what he said was douchey to begin with

Igor Pockerjack has never been that good. I wonder if he will be cut after this loss? Vinny looked so f*cking good! His only impressive win was against soszynski, and I thought Maldonaldo won in his last fight.
