"My goal since day one was to fight in the UFC. I knew I'd make it, and that's not where my dream/goals stop. The work has just started, as I only care about winning in the UFC and beating the toughest guys, which are in the UFC. My first opponent is Mark Bocek. He has quite the resume in grappling, and anyone can do nothing but respect that. I've been training for quite some time, have been training my butt off for this fight in San Diego, and the respect is out the window once I step into that octagon. Regardless of where the fight goes, I plan to keep punching him in the face, breaking him down, and looking for options to finish him. I'm very confident going into this fight, and I can't wait until Dec 5th."
