“I’m not in this to play second fiddle to anybody. It’s not so much the belt that holds the significance, it’s what the belt means and how much I worked for it, how much my team’s worked for it and how much my family’s sacrificed for it. So yeah, I’m not gonna give that belt up very easily. When I leave Japan, I’m gonna come home still the champion. I know Ben’s a tough guy, but there’s a reason I’m the champion.”
