Hello everyone just a quick check in. Took the day to be with my family and my thoughts. Not gonna lie, I'm sad and that's ok. It's all good. Just a couple of black eyes… We prepared for victory but that's the fight game. Yesterday wasn't my night. As in life when things don't go our way we say to ourselves "if only" or "what if this, and what if that".. I'm there right now and I could replay the fight in my mind a million times, but the moment has passed and moving forward is the only direction we go. I have so many things to be grateful for. My husband, my daughter, my family, my friends, my coaches, my teammates, my fans all around ther world, and this beautiful life! Thank you for all the love and energy you give me. It's a game of inches and I will be back. Thank you @joannajedrzejczyk for sharing the octagon with me and congratulations on your victory. @joshuagomeznm #ufctampa #momchamp
