Terrance McKinney plans to appeal the latest loss. Details the decision to fight short at UFC Vegas 78.

Terrance McKinney is fouling Nazim Sadykhov’s loss in July.

The veteran UFC lightweight is trying to appeal to the Nevada Athletic Commission after Sadykhov grabbed several changes to their fight. McKinney believed referee Keith Peterson could not effectively stop Sadykhov from fouling. And that directly contributed to the result of the match.

“he [grabbed the fence] Also in the first round when I backed him,” McKinney explained when speaking to MMA Fighting. “That was some rubbish. It should be the point. [deducted] and we’re backing up

“You can see it in the video. when he caught the fence I dropped to the floor trying to finish the shot instead of kneeling. Then he did it again. And then my butt hurt and I had to bail out.”

Replays show Sadykhov holding the fence several times, with Peterson brushing his hand to let it slip. Instead, he chose to halt the action or punish the fighter by deducting points.

Although McKinney likes to manage his business in a cage. But he expects his manager to appeal in the coming days, hoping the board will review the video to see how the foul affects the outcome of the fight.

before submitting to the contest McKinney was indeed pleased with his performance except for one mistake he would correct if given the opportunity.

“We stick to the game plan,” McKinney said. “The first two rounds, we’re just going to wrestle him. Then raise the third We know he’s going to come like crazy. And that’s when we’ll play ‘T-Wrecks’ and blow up. Because we know he’s going to take risks. So I’m looking for a knockout in the third round. I feel like cardio is incredibly smart. The only thing I would change in the second round I wish I could throw one more bullet before I fired.

“We are getting the appeal ready. They sent the rules we will handle it [soon]. Hope everything ends well. [with the appeal] And I don’t mind fighting him or these guys again.”

While he was waiting for a petition about an appeal. McKinney wasted no time booking another bout with a brief chance to face Mike. Breeden on Saturday at UFC Vegas 78.

McKinney has jumped into punches like this before in his career. But this time, he really had no choice. After taking advice from UFC fighter Kevin Holland, his close friend and mentor, over the past few months.

“We are still in good shape. I went back to practice with [Kevin Holland] and help him prepare for battle. So I keep my weight low,” says McKinney. “He just said get ready. And this opponent sounded right.

“It makes sense that Kevin said that. ‘You’re going to fight this time’ and I’m right, bet you know me. I’m always weak.”

After suffering consecutive defeats Regardless of the circumstances surrounding his July fight with Sadykhov McKinney really wants to get back into winning ways. and came back sooner instead of giving him that chance.

McKinney has nothing against Breeden, but he could end up being instrumental in helping the 28-year-old Washingtonian vent his frustration after the disappointing result.

“I was furious about the last one,” McKinney said. “Because I definitely felt that I was a better fighter. I saw all his attacks. I just hurriedly removed That was the only thing I would change in that fight. Instead of one punch, I’d rather punch twice and shoot, that’s the only thing I’d change. just more calculations I don’t have to rush to delete it. Just making sure I’m comfortable there.

“I’m trying to get mine back. Here’s an opportunity. God put a window there. and we hold on I’m ready to face this bloke. I know we’re going to blow him away. I am ready to crush this guy and strike out with a knockout.”
