R. Couture thought he lost the fight to Vera

Here's the quote: " I wouldn’t have been terribly disappointed had the decision gone the other way. I was very impressed with Brandon.

That tells me that he expected to lose. Shouldn't a fighter/athlete, be upset when they lose?

It seems that Couture feels that, as a 46 year old, he fought a great fight, and apparently that's enough for him. He made decent money from the fight, and he has a new, hot, young girlfriend, old enough to be his daughter. Life's pretty good for him, no?

I think he just meant it was a close decision and he was happy with his gameplan/effort.
Now, why don't you return to alternating between meals for one and masturbation
