“I think the only thing predictable about me is that I can beat her anywhere the fight goes. I know I’m a better striker than her, I know I’m a better wrestler than her, I know I’m better on the ground than her, I know I’m physically stronger than her, I know I have more experience than her. Everybody has a punchers chance, but I definitely wouldn’t bet against me in this.
“It’s just, you know I think she’s actually so new and so green into this sport that she really doesn’t get it. She doesn’t realize that there is a difference in – like what, she’s got is 5, 6 fights? You know? I’ve been fighting for 12, 13 years now. Between kickboxing, boxing, Muay Thai, MMA I have over 50 fights. I was the world champion Muay Thai fighter. Honestly there’s nothing Paige is going to do to me that I haven’t seen before or felt before. I really don’t believe she’s better than me anywhere.”
“I don’t see this fight going all the way, and I definitely see it being stopped, whether it’s by the ref, or the doctor, or – I don’t even know if her corner is allowed to throw in the towel anymore, but it’s not going 15 minutes I will tell you that … I really think that I’m going to knock her out in round one or round two.”
“I think that everybody got to see the girls in the Ultimate Fighter, they got to see everybody get weeded out; but all people have seen of Paige is this one fight and they think like ‘oh she’s so good, she’s so great’, and I’m not taking anything away from her, she’s a good little fighter, but I think that when I fight Paige, people are going to see a difference in levels. I don’t think that this is actually an evenly matched up fight at all.”
