“Say I beat Matt Hughes in the first round and I come out without any scratches, Dana when can I fight again? Two weeks? Perfect let’s go. I just want to fight consistently and get my name out there and keep it out there and hold on.”

“I have to go out and beat the sportsman named Matt Hughes and that’s no easy task. So that’s what I’m preparing to do. It’s been so long, we’re two different guys. Matt Hughes is a lot harder to hit than you think he is. It’s a new fight for me.”

“I want to be the best. I’m not taking this Matt Hughes fight as a last hurrah. Eventually I’m going to put it all together and it’s going to work out. This isn’t the end. You never know.”
