“I’m not going to force a grappling match. I’m much better striking than him. Faster, longer, better boxing, better kicking. So I’m going to be smart, but when it comes to a grappling situation, it’s a natural action. I can choke anybody. I can take their back, choke them, I have a bunch of really good moves. But would I like to win by submitting him? Yes, it’d be awesome. People would realize I’m not just good, but one of the best grapplers in the division, too… When you’re going for something and trying to force it and it’s not happening, you’re always open for something. He’ll leave himself open, and I’m planning on countering with good position, punching, and then maybe a submission or something.”
