After the first 10 seconds, I realised that this guy had nothing to hurt me. So I got a bit reckless and was throwing stupid punches at times. In the first two rounds I was trying to find my distance, but I'm happy with how things went at the finish.

He's very confident it's going to happen, just got to get round the UFC situation… If he gets that out the way it's happening, 100%.
Being in there with a world champion shows if I want to go fast, I can do it, if I don't I can take it easy. We're just going to see how it goes, play it by ear. But I do want to do it within the next two or three years. I'll see how it goes and kee[...]
"Now I can see it, I can feel it!"

"It was always going to be quite a tough fight, world number two against world number three. I was quite nervous,". "He came with different kind of tactics to what I thought he was going to come with... He tried to come in and roughhouse, which does[...]
I knew I was getting to him. I knew it was annoying him. When he started using his head I knew he was going to get warned because he was using it like mad.
