Whittaker stated the following: “I lost my cool. I wasn’t really fighting like I know I should fight. Like I normally fight. Props to him. He got into my head but I just think he’s a sh*thead.”

Many often wonder what it’s like for a fighter to lose. Sure, they pay is still good, but what does life feel like after the fact? Does anything really change or is it just another day and another chance to move forward?

Whittaker took the time to answer that question for those who always wondered: “Food loses its flavor. Everything tastes bland. Colors aren’t as bright. It just feels like everything is sh*t. That’s the best way to describe it. And that goes away because emotions are a wave you need to ride. So it goes away, and you forget about it pretty quickly but for that week or two, after a fight – after a loss, in particular – it’s sucky.”
