Rising 145-pound prospect Chad Mendes and Bellator Fighting Championships featherweight title-holder Joe Soto both picked up victories at Thursday's debut event for the recently restructured Tachi Palace Fights organization.

However, UFC veteran War Machine didn't fare so well and dropped a close split-decision loss to David Mitchell.

I love that War Machine lost, so much smack talking from him, I hope this humbles him but it wont. Lets see Junie vs War!!!

Ariel Helwani: What do you know about your opponent on Thursday?
I know that he's 7-0. I don't know how, because he sucks. That's pretty much all I know.

Why do you think he sucks?
He has no stand up, no wrestling, he pulls guard ... I don't know. He sucks.

So you're not expecting a tough fight from him?
Nah. I think it's kind of a joke fight.

Are you even motivated to fight him?
I'm always motivated to make money, but it's just about money. That's why I fight in the first place. I don't think he is a real fight for me.

WAR MACHINE LOSES

Serves "War Machine" right for overlooking his opponent. That interview probably gave his opponent all the fuel for his fire that he needed.

Junie was just attacking nurses that were treating him for a drug overdose so I do not think this matchup will happen for a while.

Yeah I threw the fight in order to fund my trip to Thailand then I found the guy afterwards in the parking lot and beat him up for acting like he was better than me
