“I think we’re kind of even. It will all come down to strategy, and maybe the ground will also be a factor in this fight. I’ve had more fights than Junior dos Santos, and I’ve seen more different styles of opponents. So, I do think that experience is on my side. I do feel that I am going into this fight with an advantage. … It feels like we’re going to make history. I basically have three other belts from three other organizations. Not small organizations, but big organizations – televised organizations. This one would definitely be the crown of my achievements.” – Thanks to Lowkick.com for the transcription.
