“I just decided to finish him on the ground because I had the opportunity but if I could finish the fight with a punch in the face I would do it. The secret to MMA is submit him and don’t get hurt, that’s about it.”

What It Takes To Beat Dan Henderson:

“Conditioning is always a big thing. I have been working on my technical drills, and looking at video.”

“I wrestle myself and Dan is a good wrestler as well. I have been training a lot in wrestling but I am very confident.”

How His Game Has Evolved In The Past 10 Years:

“Conditioning training has changed a lot, and I have a lot of different professionals that work with me. I was more amateur then, a young guy. I am totally different today because of all the stuff that I have learned over the past years. I train well and make fewer mistakes while training.”
