| by

Jared Hamman wanted nothing more than to put on a show in front of his new hometown fans at UFC 150: Henderson Vs. Edgar II Saturday night. However, after Michael Kuiper landed a kick that tore his hamstring, Hamman was left fighting on one leg.

Showing obvious pain on his face, Hamman limped back to his corner after the opening five minutes. Some wondered if he would go back out, but "The Messenger" never thought twice about continuing on. Kuiper finished him later in the second, and now, Hamman has been forced to defend his reason for not giving up.

"I've heard that people are getting on my corner for letting me go 2nd (round)," Hamman wrote on Twitter Sunday. "Ridiculous, it was my call. Knew it was torn but you never Quit."

The loss was the second straight for Hamman, who is now 13-5 in his career. Since joining the UFC in 2009, he has went just 2-4, falling to the likes of Nate Marquardt and Alexander Gustafsson.
