Soto suffered a tough loss to Iuri Alcantara Saturday night at UFC Fight Night 125 in Brazil. Thousands of miles away, Soto’s family, including wife Rocio, watched live on FOX Sports 1.

Here’s what Rocio Soto posted moments after watching her husband, a former Bellator champion and one-time UFC title challenger, suffered a devastating defeat.

“I think the fight was stopped too early, Joe has been hurt worse in fights,” she posted on Facebook. “But what do I know. What I do know is Joe has gone through worse things in his life and always rises above, he is healthy and that is all that matters.

“This fight game is hard, it’s hard on everyone. There is good and there is bad, there are happy tears and sad tears. It’s a roller coaster of emotions for me and I’m sure for him as well.

“I just want to say that I am so proud of him either way. He works hard and always stays humble no matter what. I love you poop and can’t wait till your home!”
