“I wanted to kill myself” UFC heavyweight Chris Daukaus drops bombshell on his mental issues following series of defeats
Chris Daukaus is currently the 11th-ranked heavyweight fighter in the UFC. The American holds a record of twelve wins and five losses out of his 17 professional appearances. Daukaus had been on a five-match winning streak since August 2019, but recent losses have caused him to struggle in the Octagon.
Before losing to Curtis Blaydes at UFC on ESPN 33, this 33-year-old fighter lost to Derrick Lewis in his UFC main event debut. Defeat in any form is always hard to accept. At one point, Daukaus considered suicide as a solution to these defeats.
“After you lose, the first month and a half I wanted to kill myself because it f**king sucks. Everyone’s telling me how bad I suck and everyone’s just s**ting on you because that’s what people do. You’re only as good as your last fight, and my last two fights have sucked, so yeah, you just have to get through that. It sucks, but you have to get through that, and I’ve been working on that since my last one, and I’m here to change that.”
The former cop is pissed about everyone’s perception of him. Daukas stated during the UFC 282 media day that he is more prepared this time and that he will never regret resigning as a cop because he is enjoying his MMA life.
“Like, dude, you totally f**ked up. You probably should have stayed a cop. But no, this is what I wanted; this is really what I’ve been striving for. It’s what I want. I would rather do this, get my ass kicked, and question whether or not I have a job than to go back to the police department.”
Considering all factors, the upcoming fight against Jairzinho Rozenstruik at UFC 282 is a must-win situation for Daukaus on December 10, 2022, at the T-Mobile Arena in Paradise, Nevada.
