During the Face-offs, Ramon Taveras didn’t t not shook hands with Martin, instead whispering some “My City Baby, This shit stays right here.” – shit referring to the belt which as outrages many in Hawaii. We don’t care how hammah of a fighter you are Ramon, but you should learn how to respect opponent.”
Although there wasn’t a cosmic justice in Ramon’s attitude, Martin Day still showed respect and accepted defeat like a real man. in the end Martin Day posted on his Instagram congratulating the winner:
MARTIN DAY Real Champ’s response to taking an “L”
“This game has the highest of highs and the lowest lows. One small miscalculation can cost dearly. It’s high stakes chess and we play willingly.
Congratulations to @catch_deez_hands, he hit me with a beautiful body kick early and another deadly hook to the liver that almost put me down, I tried my best to hide it and tie him up but he did a great job capitalizing and grabbing my neck for the finish. Congratulations to him and his team.
As for me I have some thinking to do as to what my next move will be. We will see. Thank you so much to all my supporters, sponsors, coaches, teammates, family and my beautiful wife and soon to be mother of my son @thehawaiihoney. All and all life is good and I am blessed.”
Congratulations Martin Day, in our eyes, you are a real winner. We wish you the best!
