"I hold myself to very high standards. I'm always looking to be the best I can be. Having the belt is confirmation. That's the rubber stamp on your hand, you are the best fighter on the planet. I'm eagerly anticipating getting that back. I'm better than Josh at boxing, Muay Thai, jiu-jitsu, everything, all around. He's very good in all those areas, I'm just a little bit better. I'm the best fighter in this division. I want to make sure I get a chance to prove that. At the end of the fight I'm going to have my hand raised and it's going to be fun doing it."
"I got in this business because I love doing what I do; I love to fight. A title shot is at stake here. If you win, you get a title shot; if you lose, you don't. This is it so I'm here to get it. I'm here to go out there and get it done. I do everything better than him. Either keeping it on the feet or taking him down, whatever, my mindset and my ability is definitely better than his. ... I'm going to go out there and I'm going to try to knock his ass out."
