At UFC 282, UFC middleweight Chris Curtis returned in style as he knocked out Joaquin Buckley in the second round of their anticipated fight.

However, even though he’s back in the win column, Curtis still can’t let go of the loss against Swedish middleweight Jack Hermansson in July.

“I’m still furious. ‘Who do you want next?’ Jack Hermansson. They’re like, ‘Why? He just lost.’ I don’t care. I have to get it back. At this point, I’ll fight Jack Hermansson every week. If he beats me every time, I’ll keep coming back next week until I win one, and then I’ll be satisfied,” Curtis said at the UFC 282 post-fight press conference.
