“Honestly, I don’t care [who wins] as long as we don’t have a decision that’s close. Somebody finish the fight so we’ll have a champ that I can fight. At this point, the belt’s been avoiding me. I’m tired of chasing after it. I’m tired of waiting and putting my career on hold. I just turned 26. I think I’m going to be entering my prime here in the next couple of years. I want to take full advantage of that. … I just want to make sure that it’s official and no matter what happens [between Henderson and Melendez] — a draw, a close decision, no one’s going to cry about the decision — that I’m next no matter what.”
