Even before the fight between Patrik Kincelo and Karlos Vemola, there was a question whether they would shake hands after the fight. They both said they would, but they didn’t. Vémola left the cage immediately after the verdict and got a lot of hate on social media. Now Kincl has commented on the situation.
The rematch between Patrik Kincl and Karlos Vemola has been years in the making. It finally happened on May 20, when the reigning champion Kincl was the winner, winning on points 5: 0.
Pavol Neruda went to put the belt on him and before he could do so, Vémola was already out of the cage. He didn’t even shake hands with anyone and disappeared into the bowels of the O2 Arena, from which he went to the hospital during the press conference.
This gesture was widely criticized after the game, after all, the handshake is a staple that shouldn’t disappear from the sport. Otherwise his reputation with the wider community will never be good.
Naturally, Kincl himself has also commented on the situation and does not like this behaviour. He himself was able to shake Kincl’s hand during the first match.
“I am sincerely sorry about this. I am an athlete, I am an athlete, I approach sport as a complex matter. I definitely don’t see MMA as a fight or a brawl. It’s also a matter of respect and from that point of view I just don’t understand.
After our first fight, I went to shake Karl’s hand normally and acknowledged his qualities in front of the whole arena. I don’t know what to add to his behavior. I can only say that my action was not a rash move,” he told Deník.
But now it’s time to take another step. The rivalry with Vémola remains, but there is no interest in the trilogy from either side. Kincl can enjoy a well-deserved rest.
This year we may not even see him in the cage again, because it is necessary to focus on the family, which he did not give his best for Vémolá. He still has plenty of time to defend his belt.
