Obviously last weekend was a bit of a dissapointing result. You’ve got to be looking to rebound from that one, have you got any plans drawn up?
Erm, just get back to it. That’s the nature of the sport, sometimes you get caught sleeping and it’s never happened to me before, it was my first one. It was a tough lesson, I didn’t enjoy it much but I’m already back in the gym ready for the next fight. 2011 is going to be a better year.
Carlos Condit flew under the radar a bit for me, a lot of people were overlooking his skills. It’s clear you had a lot of respect for him but when it came down to it, it was just two people throwing the same shot at the same time.
Yeah, I can’t take it away from him it was a great shot. My hand wasn’t up where it should have been and my punch didn’t land as clean as his did. It’s a lesson learned but I’ll catch him back no doubt. Every time I lose I always get it back one way or the other so he’s got it coming to him.
Have the UFC been in touch with details of an opponent or is there anyone that you’ve got your eye on?
To be honest I haven’t, I’ve not really got my eye on anyone. It’s just whoever the UFC see fit to put me up against. I’ve not heard anything from them yet but I’m expecting to in the next couple of weeks.
