In an oddly heartening move, just about 24 hours after his loss to Jon Jones at UFC 214, Daniel Cormier took to Instagram to offer his thoughts on the fight. They read as serene and even apologetic, as he congratulates the Jones camp on their win and offers up some apologies along the way.

Here’s the post in its entirety:

First off, thank you all for the kind words. I have felt the support. Congratulations to Jon Jones and his team. They did a phenomenal job and got the victory. Also, to Big John McCarthy, I would like to apologize for acting up with you. I am thankful for the time you gave me to try and defend myself and stay in the fight. You are the best in the business for a reason. I also wanna thank my team and my coaches. I love you all from the bottom of my heart. Your time and energy is greatly appreciated. You guys did a wonderful job, I was ready. It’s a fist fight and things happen. Dana White and the @ufc, thank you for being the premiere organization in all of MMA. Again, congrats to Team Jones and JacksonWink. Love you all. I’ll see you soon. DC @layziethesavage

There’s not much else to say here, but it’s nice to know he’s not in a room fuming somewhere. It’s a sport, not a bloodbath.
