But despite this, the words of the “diamond” also gave people talk.
‘I knew I had a part of the world title. I’m not an idiot. I knew I was not the undisputed world champion, but I was in a place of gratitude for the years of work that I put in and put myself in the position of beating a current world champion at the time to win an interim belt. Max Holloway was a world champion and I earned that interim belt over the years, 24, 25 fights with this company dating back to the days of the WEC, ”he began by saying.
At the same time, Dustin He also reported: “I knew I was not the undisputed world champion, but I had a piece and I was very proud of it. For what Gaethje say i thought i made it and i was holding a fake belt and him pushing that belt in all those interviews, these last few months of him throwing that belt on the ground, i just wanna tell everyone who watches this this is a life lesson . It is not about fighting.
“You have to understand and appreciate the position you placed yourself in and be grateful for all that you have because all these months of Gaethje walking and pulling that belt could have been months where he took the position, assumed the role that he put on himself. Not trying to be a jerk and throwing his belt to the ground and trying to say “I want the real one!” “Added the gigantic American stricker to his sayings.

You have a piece of the real right there on your shoulder that you are throwing and you are disrespecting it. I honor my work. That’s why I wear that belt with pride. I just want to put that out there. All those months that he was interim champion could have been great months if he hadn’t been throwing that belt down. “
