Juan Adams stormed out of the cage after quickly losing to Greg Hardy at UFC San Antonio — and now seemingly regrets doing so.

Adams, who fell to Hardy less than a minute into their main-card heavyweight bout, apologized “to the UFC and to the fans” on social media for his post-fight behavior.

“I let my emotions get the better of me and I acted horribly,” Adams wrote. “To everyone present and watching at home, I truly apologize. I took a few to the head and was caught up in the moment.”

At the start of the fight, Adams and Hardy immediately began exchanging punches on the feet. Adams shot in for a takedown, Hardy stuffed it, and attacked his opponent with ground-and-pound. The shots didn’t knock Adams out, but he wasn’t moving or intelligently defending himself enough, prompting the referee to call it off.

Hardy moved to 2-1 in the UFC, while Adams dropped to 1-2. This marked the first stoppage loss of Adams’ career.

“I am sorry for losing composure, i am sorry for not honoring my word, and all I can do is prove myself if given another opportunity,” Adams wrote. “Whatever is next is next, but next week it’s back in the gym.”
