"From the moment I beat Forrest, everyone will start recognizing me. Here is a America it's the same as Brazil if you fight good.... I fought a lot of top guys in PRIDE. In this transition coming to the United States, I'm going to start everything again. I want to prove I'm No.1 in the world.... I think he (Griffin) is very good. He has great endurance and he is tough. I think it will make for an exciting fight."
