You had finished your sequence of defeats in UFC, but you loss again on your last fight, against Rick Story… How are you going for this fight?
I’ve learned a lot from my last fight, I’ll never let it go to the judges ever again. It took me a long time to start fighting, but I’ve learned what I had to learn, I’ve seen it all. Now I only have to trust my talent and on my team and go for it. I’ll try to knock him out or submit all opponents from now on. I’ll be aggressive again.
You don’t knockout since your bout against Matt Hughes. Why can’t you do it anymore?
I used to fight with nothing to lose. I had no worries whatsoever, I just fought to have fun, but when you reach a certain level you have to worry more, you start focusing on your future and forget about the present.

I have no excuses, no I have to work hard and go for it.
