“He goes around and tells lies. After the sparring session, he posted on his Twitter that we went through a ‘war’. What he said had nothing to do with reality.”

He then threatened to expose the young fighter and said, “I still have the recordings. If I was all about the hype, I’d post it. That way people would see the type of ‘war’ we actually had.”

Thus showing that he is not a fan of the superstar’s social media shenanigans. ‘Loma’ then said what really happened. “What actually happened was he kept retreating to the trenches and was terrified to show his face.”
