"Patrick Cummins, Pat. He was one of my training partners when I was getting ready for the Olympic games in 2004. ... Just don't prod a guy that has advantages over you already. Now you're the enemy. I gotta beat you, I gotta smash you Pat Cummins. I expect to dominate the fight as I do every time I step inside the cage. Show Pat Cummins the moment the referee says fight that 'man, I'm in over my head'. This is the biggest mistake that Pat Cummins has ever made in his entire life. Because not only did he take a fight with me on 10 days notice he actually prodded me. I want to beat him in every facet of every part of mixed martial arts. I don't want him to feel like he won anything. On Sunday, when he gets up in the morning, he wakes up and goes 'man, that dude beat me up at every turn.'"
"They put us together in simulation matches. I threw him for five. If you don't know, throwing him for five is basically throwing his hips over his head. I hear this sniffling in my ear and I'm like 'what's going on right now?' We break and we come back and I see his face and he's crying. ... At the end of the day, this is my dream. I've been devoting my life to this with this one goal in mind, to be the best 205'er in the world. This is the fast track. There's nothing better. He's going to sit back in that chair at the end of the round and be like 'oh no, what have I done?' I'm going to be in his face from the start. Push the pace and look for a finish the entire time. It will come just from being relentless and dragging him to a place that he's never been before."
