The UFC featherweight fighter who has won the fight of the night award 4 times out of his last 6 fights, spoke to bjpenn.com about how he plans to change his style of fighting:
“I’m just looking to make a statement period at anyone’s expense! Matt just happens to be the first guy in line! I feel like those fights opened my eyes. I have 5 FOTN’s and 2 KO of the nights. I’m looking for some submissions of the night and a few more KO’s! I’m training differently, I’m hungry again! I’m going into the gym eager to learn, not as the fight of the night guy who knows it all.
Those fights made me smarter, they made me seasoned. I know I can go to war with anyone at anytime but why not outsmart them. So no, they didn’t take there toll, they made me a better fighter and on June 8th you’ll see what I’m talking about!”
