“The boss told us to fight, so we’ll have to do it, but I don’t like facing a Brazilian, specially when it’s a friend of mine, like Cacareco."

“It’ll be weird to see him on the other side of the octagon ready to fight me. We’ve trained together for many time, we’ve helped each other a lot… I really like him, I consider him a good friend and training partner.
