“It’s a big relief,” Duffee told the Sherdog Radio Network’s “Beatdown” show. “I can actually kind of relax for the fact that all I have to worry about now is training and fighting. I don’t have to be sitting on the phone trying to figure out when can I get a fight.”

“The big thing, I think, [about] this time away was it hurt my development,” Duffee said. “I think I could have improved a lot more in the last two years had I not been dealing with some of the situations I had.”

“I was at the point financially that the efforts I was putting in, it wasn’t paying off,” Duffee said. “It didn’t make a lot of sense. You start feeling stupid after a certain amount of time, like how delusional am I? But it did pay off, and I’m excited that I’ve got things back on track.”

Big fan of Todd, he has huge potential for a very bright future. Sounds like his perspective of The UFC has changed a lot in these last two years. I'm glad he's back in the big show - the Heavyweight division is just getting deeper and deeper!

He'll be keeping himself in check this time around I'm sure. I still don't know what he did or said to piss DFW off last time, but I don't see it happening again. Best of luck to him.

Oprah666 - I don't think UFC is place to "finally relax.", bro. Id see the exact opposite. "now its time to go to war.". I cant relate to his pov at all. Am i alone on this or??

I think he ment he can relax about finding fights.....he knows he needs to step it up in the ufc.....I hope they take it slow with him maybe duffee vs morecraft ( is he still in ufc?)

He can relax as in he can now just develop as a fighter and not have to worry about where is next fight/next pay is coming from.

rather like when you're looking for a job and finally get one. Yes you should now be focussed but you can also relax about worrying about being unemployed.

WEC, President

Todd did a great job at the event and carried himself well.  As he walked to the presser, a fan started yelling at him and called him a F@ckin Dick.

He looked at me and smiled and said "did that guy just call me a F@ckin Dick"  so I looked at the guy and said "that guy would break you in half" and all the people around him started laughing at him, then he called me a "F@ckin Dick"  :)  I told Todd I had joined the F@cking Dick club and he laughed!

Wasn't it over Dana wanting him to take a fight and Duffee said no because he had NEVER BACK DOWN 2 lined up to shoot?

I think it was that and he publicly said how broke he was and asked if anyone knew of a part time job he could do while training. All this while Dana was saying how much money his guys make.

glad he got knock out of the night as well.  Ryann Von Doom should be getting 15%.
