The top billed bout on the UFC 152 preliminary card special on FX was a light-heavyweight bout between the surging Igor Pokrajac and the returning TUF runner up, Vinny Magalhaes.

In the second round Vinny was able to do what he does and finish his opponent via armbar to make his return to the Octagon a successful one.

Igor, apparently didn’t like the Brazilians strategy and took to twitter to voice his complaint.

Igor lost that fight entirely because of himself. Not because of Vinny's game plan or grappling in mma. There was 0 reason for him to take arguably the best BJJ guy in the LHW division to the ground and he did and he lost. That's what happens.

Exactly what I was gonna post only with different words


It was a legit armbar. Deal with it and move on. Now you know what to train more sub defense

Terrible strategy by Igor, he has nothing to bitch about here.

Yeah I found it too funny not to post here. If he got hit in the head enough during the fight I could file this under brain injury, but seriously, what an idiotic thing to say.

Hey IGOR - - - this isn't Pride 17 where they had to make "special rules" for the K-1 prima-dona....what is it about Croatia? The land of no TDD

More bleeding VJJ's than a kingsmasher family reunion.

Igor pretty much dove into Magalhaes' guard in the 2nd round, after nearly being submitted in the 1st round. That's on him.

Totally understand venting a bit afterwards, especially considering it's Twitter. In the long run he should man up, accept this part of the game, and learn from it.

I picked Igor in my parlay, and he ruined it, so no doubt I'm not happy about his strategy (or lack there of). IMO, he was lucky to escape in the 1st, and I was thinking, 'Ok, now he'll avoid the clinch.' But, no, not only does he clinch in the 2nd, he takes Vinny down and gets subbed for his trouble. Now he complains about it? The pic says it all.

If he didn't want to grapple why the fuck did he take Vinny down? What a crybaby.

Agree but I would argue one of the best BJJ guys in the world not just the lhw division.
