Chris Pratt dubbed himself a "hypocrite" after criticizing the recent performance of UFC middleweight champion Israel Adesanya.
The actor was in Las Vegas last weekend to take in UFC 276, where Israel defended his title against Jared Cannonier. Chris acknowledged that he was cheering for the challenger, who came up short. In a chat with ESPN after the match, the "Guardians of the Galaxy" star felt the fight was somewhat underwhelming and needed more action.
"I'm gonna say this as humbly as I can, as a guy who never stepped in the Octagon. I don't know this game, I'm just an actor. But I'm not a fan, man. I'm not a fan of coming out, all that talk and then just kind of putting on a little bit of a pitter-patter," he said. "I'm like, 'Come on, man. Cash on that.' You've got to cash on that promise of being so b*****."
The UFC champ caught wind of the criticism and responded by sharing a clip of Chris getting smacked in 2008's "Wanted." He added, "Good morning. I'm the man. You're just some fan."
Upon seeing the clip and message, Chris issued a mea culpa.
"You're right. I'm sorry brutha. It bugs me when people criticize my work- having never themselves risked anything," he tweeted. "It makes me a hypocrite to do exactly that to you. My bad. Keep on keeping on champ."
