Johnny Walker cites ex-trainer in loss to Anderson

Walker Johnny Silva Barra de Souza was on a nine-fight win streak, and a candidate for a title-shot vs. light heavyweight champion Jon Jones, until he was TKOed in 127 seconds by Corey Anderson at UFC 244. Now Walker plans to prepare at Firas Zahabi's Tristar for his next fight, vs. Nikita Krylov at UFC on ESPN+ 28.

And during a recent interview with The Schmo, Walker pinned the loss to Anderson on his former coach.

"I don't accept this loss because I can beat him," said Walker, as transcribed by Ryan Harkness for MMA Mania. "I know that. But I had a little problem during the fight, fight week as well, before the fight some stress with my team. So I learned a lot and it's not going to happen again."

"I don't train with my old coach anymore because the problem is with him. During fight week he stressed me out twice, and before the fight he almost hurt my shoulder because he don't know how to hold the pad properly. We don't match too well on fight week. For a long time I start having these, because we live together, about respect as well. Some things are not getting met. So now I have no coach and I'm trying to go to Tristar and look for a new coach and new experience and new guys. And I'm ready to restart again."

"I'll be ready. I'm going to train hard there, gonna learn as much as I can, I'm gonna beat Nikita Krylov. ... I don't care what people think. I'm going to be the same guy, but better."

"I'm gonna work in everything. Wrestling, jiu-jitsu, strike, box, everything that I can work. I always learn and improve myself every day. So I'll be better and I'll be back. Soon. The 14th of March. Brazil. My time to get the bonus of the night again."

The stress from his coach caused him to try and showboat when he should have been fighting?

Also, who was his old coach?

Talented guy but seems a little off in the head.

One of the more mentally weak fighters I've seen in some time.

If there was a god an he was a man.

He would have built a rib cage around our balls...mic drop

You must have tiny, baby balls. 

Men don't have ribcages around their balls because our balls would slam into the rib cages while pumping thrusts into your whore mother. 

And that would hurt.

Sheesh. 


Plus if we had ribcages around our balls, how would we inflate them with silicone as Master commands?

What's wrong wirh the guy on the right? 

He's the noobs Ariel helwani. We live in a world where being good at your profession is not good enough to get recognised, but acting like a retard is.

Not the reporters fault just shows where we are as a society and what hope we have if we face a massive calamity, zero.

The Brazillian excuse!

The classic "It was my trainers fault" after a loss. Nothing to see here, move along!

So many great points in this thread:

 

 "Making good decisions under duress is what separates good from great."

 

100% agree!

 

"We live in a world where being good at your profession is not good enough to get recognised, but acting like a retard is."

 

The truth!!

I watch my mum slap her shitty cunt for fun

The coach that helped him get that win streak is now at fault because of this one loss?  What's with him saying he doesn't accept the loss?  Lose with some grace, you fucking excuse making brazilian windbag.
