“I like my opponent. That’s why I want to fight him. I don’t mean to say it like that, but he’s the number one guy to beat. That’s what you want. I’ve been wanting his spot. He’s got the spot. He’s the guy to beat. I like him just fine. I had no room to run my mouth and talk. I was promoting this fight. I got the fight I wanted. I can’t complain now. I like him just fine.”
