Despite losing at UFC Vegas 88, Israeli fighter Natan Levy made sure to keep the attention on the hostages still in Gaza.

“Thank you to everyone that supports me in this crazy journey: my team, family, friends, and amazing wife. To the 134 Israeli hostages, we love you and are waiting for you to come back home. Even if we can’t win them all, we will always fight for you until our last breath,” Levy wrote on X.

Levy saw his two-fight winning streak snapped following a loss at UFC Vegas 88 on Saturday night to Mike Davis. In Round 1, Davis dropped Levy with the first strike and nearly submitted him several times. In Round 2, Davis dominated Levy again by securing an arm triangle choke for the win.

Reflecting on the disappointing finish, Levy wrote on X:

“Fall down seven times; get up eight. I had a lot of battles to fight just to make it into the cage today, and even though I am not happy with my performance, I’m glad I’m back in, and I want more fights from now on.”

Prior to the fight, Levy paid tribute to the hostages by signaling ‘134’ during his weigh-in.
