I think he was just frustrated at the situation. He’s fought a total of 3 times since leaving the UFC about 3 years ago, his first fight in like 20 months, and it ended in a minute because dude turned his head away from the punches, so instead of getting hit in the side of the head, they landed to the back of the head. I mean…how many times ever has a guy been DQ’d for hitting a guy in the back of the head when they’re face to face?
I think Eddie was just super frustrated about how his career has gone as of late. In just under 4 years with the UFC, he fought 8 times. Since then he’s only fought 3 times in the last 3 years. He’s 37, knows his career is winding down, wanted to win another belt to add to his legacy, has been on the sidelines longer than he’d like, and it gets stopped for what he likely felt was a bullshit DQ a minute in. He was upset and the emotion came pouring out.
