Chris Pratt told that he was “not a fan” of the champion’s performance sharing, “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.”

He added, “I’m not a fan, man. I’m not a fan of coming out like all that talk and then just putting on a little bit of a pitter-patter. Like, come on, man. You’ve got to cash on that. You got to cash on that promise, you know? Being so bad***.”
