Emily Whitmore scored her first UFC victory Saturday. She managed to defeat Jamie Moyle via decision.
Still it was a bittersweet experience for Whitmore as Moyle was cornered by fellow Xtreme Couture fighter Vinny Magalhaes.
Whitmire calledVinny a piece of crap after.
“Vinny is supposed to be my teammate,” Whitmire said. “He said he wasn’t cornering against me like, five times. Then today I showed up, saw him getting off the bus, didn’t message me or anything. So he can go f*ck himself.”
Magalhaes was quick to respond via mmafighting:
“This woman got angry because I train at Xtreme and was in Jamie’s corner,” Magalhaes said, “But Jamie is my student and my purple belt, and I don’t even see this girl training at Xtreme. I have zero training relationship with her. I even told one of her coaches that I would be in Jamie’s corner. He didn’t deliver the message, it’s not my fault.
“I asked if there was a problem, didn’t like the idea, kind of let it aside because I was fighting [at PFL] and didn’t want to worry about this. When I came back from my fight, I told her coach I would be in Jamie’s corner, told him to let Emily know, but apparently the message didn’t get to her.”
“Not at all because in a way I understand her side,” Magalhaes said, “But the fact that she trains at the same place I train doesn’t make us training partners. I don’t even know what she does, what her background is, I know nothing. I was there for Jamie.”
