Batgerel has scored a few highlight reel KOs of his own since signing for the UFC. But this time he found himself on the receiving end, getting stopped by a spinning back fist in the second round.

That loss snapped his three fight winning streak, the Mongolian had put his last three opponents away inside a round. But it doesn’t sound like he is going to dwell on his defeat for too long and his message was:

“You either win or you learn in this game. We will be back stronger.”

Since signing for the UFC he has been doing a lot of winning. He had won three out of four heading into this contest so the loss to Gutierrez was definitely a setback.

It means a spot in the top 15 will continue to elude the Mongolian. But while he isn’t in title contention the 32 year old can console himself with the knowledge that he remains one of the most entertaining and explosive fighters on the roster.
