“No easy fights in the UFC. He’s a striker. His stand-up is pretty good and he’s also a purple belt in jiu-jitsu, with good takedown defenses. He’s a tough guy, will be a good fight.
I lost both times in quick fights, I couldn’t show my work. Velasquez and Cormier are two top fighters too, it’s not like I lost to a nobody. Dana White knows what I can do and I’m happy with this chance.”
