Спасибо всем хорошим людям, тем кто меня поддерживал, кто ободрял, кто верил. Подготовка была неплохой, функционалка была одна из лучших за последнее время, также работали над ударкой… бой шёл более-менее по-плану, но после удара соперником меня в голову на полу, рефери остановил поединок и спросил меня – кружится ли голова? Я ответил – немного но нормально., а он сказав это доктору – сразу решили остановить бой… состояние мое нормальное, травм кроме нескольких синяков – нет, дух не сломлен. Извините, кого расстроил, постараюсь быть сильнее в следующем бою. #мма #олейник #ufc #ufc217 #oleynik
