"I certainly hope so [Fedor fights in the UFC]. He's the top fighter in the world right now and certainly with good reason. He's amazing to watch. I love to watch him fight. He's exciting. He's very stoic when he steps into the ring. He's got a great demeanor. He's technically a very, very good fighter. Those are the kind of guys I want to fight. [A fight with Fedor] might be a little too far down the line right now to talk about. I'm trying to keep focused on Gonzaga. I'm not going to hold my breath on Fedor, but if it ever happens, that would be great."
