Jonathan Nutt To clear it up from my point. Marcelo TheLatino Tenorio is a warrior and I consider him a friend. He never called me out. I never, would Ever call him him out. We both took the fight on last minutes notice, for love of the game… And he Was the better man tonight. I wish I could have given him my all, and am sorry that I was not a complete fighter. I thought it would be much easier than it was, and respect any one who gets inside the cage. I write this while I am a bag of busted up dogshit. Latinao! You’re the Man! While we were on the mat I told him… I have nothing left. And that was the Truth. Not only did I have nothing left in the gas tank, I had nothing left in the oil tank or the washer fluid for that matter. I thought that I was having a heart attack. I gave it my all. And my all fell short. Marcelo is the real deal. From now on… I will stick to yelling into the mike. If you wanna play with the big dogs you have to be one… I am… but a puppy. Thank you all for your support, of the sport I love so much. All the best in the world-


Marcelo TheLatino TenorioJonathan Nutt you my friend is the biggest winner
because you have a good heart and humility
I admire your ability and we all know,
the difficulty you faced, having to change clothes,
wrapping the hands and not having time to warm the body
When Dare Championship asked if I wanted to fight you,
I said … the only problem is that I like this guy.
I believe the public has enjoyed our fight
