Carlos Eduardo Rocha is now a former UFC fighter, and the Brazilian doesn’t seem to happy about it. Rocha went 1-2 inside the Octagon, including a recent loss to Mike Pierce.
“I went there to fight MMA an he wants to win by points. There were 15 minutes of pur mooring,” said Rocha, in a recent interview with Tatame. “This is (expletive). And UFC fires me after a fight where the guy just stood there mooring. Wasn’t him the one who said he’d fight any Brazilian because it’s an easy fight? I thought he could come for me but he didn’t. He didn’t hit me nor let me hit him. That’s not MMA.”
Rocha is 9-2, with his other career loss coming to Jake Ellenberger via split decision last year. The 30-year-old owns eight submission victories.
