“I’m living day to day and loving life right now,” Maynard said. “I’m living my dream and I’m happy again. I’m training hard, going all over the Bay Area, and there is a lot of knowledge up here. It’s been a great experience and I’ve learned a lot so far. I’ve picked up new techniques, different looks and my game is definitely evolving.
“All I want to do is continue to grow and develop, and I’m having a great time doing it. There is so much out there to learn. I’m hungry and excited to soak it all up, add new elements to my game and improve the areas I would consider my strengths. I want to keep evolving, and that is what it’s going to take for me to become the fighter I want to be. I want to be a champion, and I’m going to do whatever it takes for that to happen.
“The title has always been the goal. I would love to have the belt and somewhere along the line, get another fight with Edgar. We are 1-1-1 and we need to settle it once and for all.
