“Every single UFC, from Ultimate Japan to UFC 207, my primary focus has been on just 2 things!
“First, to bring passion, energy and raw emotion to our fans around the world, dedicated, diehard fans like none other!
“Second, to properly represent each and every fighter, from UFC newcomer to veterans with 20 plus Octagon battles, out fighters work so hard and sacrifice so much it was my responsibility to properly prepare and tell their stories!!
“Tommy Toe Hold, that video was hilarious!
“And just for the record, I still believe that Anderson Silva’s Precision is Precise!”
