"... it's not a competition, it's a fight. And I'm there to destroy my opponent, I'm not there to compete against my opponent, I'm there to annihilate my opponent. There's no room or space for allowing him to get into the fight, I need to stop him from the moment I step into the Octagon. If not, it's going to be my ass. (Laughs.) And that's been my philosophy out there -- I'm there to kill. That's it."
