Former Ultimate Fighter semifinalist Krzysztof Soszynski suffered a devastating knockout loss to Igor Pokrajac earlier this month at UFC 140: Jones vs. Machida. The loss ended a two-fight winning streak for Soszynski, and, apparently, his MMA career.
During UFC President Dana White‘s first video blog for UFC 141: Lesnar vs. Overeem, Soszynski is shown being looked over by the medical team after ths loss in Toronto. While being examined he informs teammate Mark Munoz and everyone around him that he is retiring.
“That was my last MMA fight, I am done,” Soszynski said. “It’s a shi**y way to go out.”
Also shown is the doctor continuing to ask Soszynski several questions in hopes of judging where his head was at following the knockout. “The Polish Experiment” replied by showing he knew where he was – Toronto – and the month – December – but was unaware of the date.
Munoz can also be seen telling Soszynski, “Don’t apologize,” in relation to the loss after the 34-year old continues to say he’s sorry for the lackluster performance.
“The Polish Experiment” holds a record of 26-12-1 in his career with past wins over Stephan Bonnar and Brian Stann. Whether he will stick to his statements or reconsider once he’s in a less-emotional situation remains to be seen.
