Taking his thoughts to social media, Garbrandt initially thanked his fans and congratulated Munhoz for a job well done.
However, the allegedly ‘egoistic’ fighter couldn’t help but defend himself from MMA fans who are shaming his game plan for UFC 235. Garbrandt says the heat-butt led him to his career’s third knockout loss.
I got head butted and after the head butt I was on auto pilot, congrats to Pedro he stuck tough. I love this fight game. I’ll be back thank you to all my supporters means a lot! https://t.co/AbIYDOCJxg

Ruin His Career
Dillashaw who have been in a verbal feud with Garbrandt since the build-up of their first match at UFC 217, said his feelings over his former rival haven’t changed.
In an interview with MMA Junkie, the current 135-lb champion looked back on living up to his promise of knocking out ‘No Love’ twice.
“Hell yeah, I’m cool with how it unfolded. It’s exactly as I said it was going to go down. I told you I was going to knock him out in the first round, I did,” the Californian titlist stated, referring to his rematch against Garbrandt in August.
“I said I’d ruin his career, I’m doing it. The guy is screwed at 135. He should have went back to the drawing board and gotten better, but he talked his way into an ass-whooping.”
“I’m happy. It’s not only him, it’s the whole team. The whole team needed a (expletive) ass-whooping. They talked all that crap, they want to accuse me of a bunch of bull(expletive). That’s the game. Karma’s a (expletive),” he added.
