Certainly not physically, as the young phenom barely breaks a sweat in any of his fights, but mentally, having endured a protracted pre-fight trash-talking campaign against Rashad Evans in the build-up to their UFC 145 title fight earlier this month.
It's something he hopes to avoid in his upcoming title defense against Dan Henderson.
"As far as Dan Henderson, I'm excited about [him], he's a great fighter. You know, I've gone through a lot with Rashad as far as all of the trash talking and I really hope Dan's listening and I really hope that Dan keeps it classy throughout this fight. I respect him as an older man, I respect him as a warrior and I just hope he keeps it classy and not drag me through another trash-talking bout. Let's stick to why we're really here, let's just fight."
