A Personal Statement From Joey Gilbert

I do not have much of an additional comment in that we have just received the commission report today.

I know the commission is in place to protect and support its fighters and I will be working closely with them to comply with whatever they need from me.

Anyone who has ever seen me running our mountain trails or in the gym knows I work hard and train hard.

Speak to any of my trainers or coaches, past or present.

It is training and sacrifice which has gotten me to where I am today.

I will apply that same determination to clearing my name and am certain there will be a satisfactory explanation and outcome.

In all honesty, my world has been turned upside-down in the last 24 hours.

I can only say the outpouring of support from friends and fans has meant more to me now than any title.

Thank you.
