Tai Tuivasa and Marvin Vettori are taking their UFC Paris losses in stride.

The two veteran contenders came away unsuccessful this past Saturday night at the UFC’s first-ever show in France, with Tuivasa losing a wild back-and-forth fight against Ciryl Gane in the main event and Vettori dropping a decision to former UFC middleweight champion Robert Whittaker in the co-headliner.

Afterward, with their battle wounds still fresh, the two posed for a photo together, which Vettori posted on his Instagram in his first comments after the loss.

“We live to fight another day,” Vettori wrote.

The setbacks ended a five-fight win streak for Tuivasa and put Vettori at 1-2 over his past three bouts, however both fighters are still highly ranked within their respective divisions. Tuivasa is MMA Fighting’s No. 5 ranked heavyweight in the world, while Vettori is MMA Fighting’s No. 3 ranked middleweight.

UFC Paris took place on Sept. 3 at the Accor Arena. Full results can be seen here.
