“The UFC had expressed interest in seeing Penn and I fight. At the time I had no idea that BJ was considering coming out of retirement. So I thought I would jump at the chance to fight him. I believe that this sport is performance based. If BJ and I go out there and put on a boring fight no one will want to see me fight the other top guys currently in the spotlight. On the flip side I can put on an exciting, technical fight and walk away victorious then it puts me in the mix and in the top five of the welterweight division.”

With his peers and teammates calling him the next champ, and his string of dominance over the UFC’s welterweight division is he deserving of a top 5 seat?
