I don’t even think that [being called a gatekeeper is] a bad thing to say. I’ve worked my ass off. I’ve had my ups and downs in my career, and if at that point I’m a gatekeeper, you’re damn right I’m a gatekeeper. And I’ve fucking earned that. So let me do my job and throw these guys like Conor McGregor in my way, so we can find out just how good they are… I know no one’s going to argue that my skill set is not top ten,” he said. “You can’t tell me that of all the top ten guys that I can’t strike or I can’t grapple or I can’t fight with any of those guys. I feel like that I’m the dark horse. I feel like those guys, none of them want to fight me.”
