"I don't know...it's difficult. It's difficult to judge sometimes between a guy who is trying to finish the fight and one who is out there simply to please the judges. In the fight with GSP it felt like I was under pressure for the entire 25 minutes. It was clear that GSP didn't want to stand and kickbox and that's fair enough. That is his prerogative and that's why he is the champion.Not only is he very good at what he does but he also knows how to win fights. I can't take anything away from him for that but at the same time it is not the way I would choose to fight.

It's something that I have dedicated my life to and there is no doubt that I would like to continue to do it for the rest of my life as well.
