Cambodian mixed martial artist Meas Meu has promised to come back stronger than ever after his first round knockout loss to Edward “the Ferocious” Kelly at ONE: Global Superheroes at the Mall of Asia Arena in Manila last weekend.
After his first defeat in MMA, Meu drops to a six win, one loss record but the Kampong Thom-born fighter has vowed to come back “better than ever”.
“I feel really ashamed of myself to lose the way I did on that night. I’m better than that and I want another chance to prove it. I just got caught, but Edward was the better fighter that night.
“For this fight I had a great camp and I felt great coming into the bout, but I feel I have more to offer.
"Edward was the better man, but next time it will be different. I hope to get another chance in the ONE cage – I feel I let everyone down including myself.
"It’s my first ever loss and it will make me better than ever.”
