Despite a dislocation to his left pinky finger before his fight and on-going shoulder problems, James Te Huna is making no excuses for losing his UFC fight against Nate Marquardt on Saturday night.
The injury to his finger was sustained just minutes before his fight.
The loss that leaves Te Huna's UFC career hanging in the balance is a hard one for him to take.
Coming off two losses, Te Huna dropped to middleweight. Despite his loss, he gave credit to his opponent.
Te Huna thanks the NZ public for throwing their support behind him, despite a few unruly spectators spitting at him as he exited the arena.
He has now returned to his home in Sydney where Te Huna says he'll be taking a sabbatical for the next two weeks to think about his future in the UFC.
