Though he may have lost his August Professional Fighters League bout to Maxim Grishin via second-round submission, light-heavyweight veteran Rakim Cleveland is not too concerned with the outcome.
As part of the PFL’s seasonal format, Cleveland secured a spot in the promotion’s post season, lessening the sting of the loss to Grishin.
“My thoughts are that it was a good fight,” Cleveland told MMAWeekly.com. “I made some minor mistakes that cost me the fight. Moving forward, I learned from my mistakes and began to prepare for the playoffs.”
