Chris Pratt issued an apology to UFC champion Israel Adesanya after snubbing him following his last fight.

Pratt had harsh words for Adesanya after the fight he attended on July 2. Speaking to ESPN, the “Parks and Recreation” star said, “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. But I’m not a fan, man.”

“I’m not a fan of coming out, all that talk and then just kind of putting on a little bit of a pitter-patter,” Pratt said. “I’m like, ‘Come on, man. Cash on that.’ You’ve got to cash on that promise of being so bad–s.”

Adesanya responded to Pratt’s criticism by sharing a clip of the actor getting hit in the face in the film “Wanted.”

“Good Morning,” the middleweight fighter wrote. “I’m the man. You’re just some fan.”

“You’re right,” Pratt wrote on Twitter. “I’m sorry brutha. It bugs me when people criticize my work- having never themselves risked anything. It makes me a hypocrite to do exactly that to you. My bad. Keep on keeping on champ.”
