"I think that if anything, it’s redemption for my performance on The Ultimate Fighter. Hopefully it goes a long way to setting the record straight to the kind of fighter I am. If I would have knocked him out in 10 seconds, everybody would have said it was a lucky punch. If it would have taken 10 minutes, everyone would have said it was because he didn’t have any conditioning. We stood in there for a while and the outcome was the outcome and neither of those excuses could be used. My general goal is to fight at the highest level I can, and obviously the end game is to fight in the UFC. As far as what I want to impress on people; win or lose I just want to fight hard and display my skills and athletic ability."

Was he impressive enough to warrant a second look? Or simply taking advantage of a bloated has-been trying to skate by on what's left of his name?
