“He’s been on a tear since he came over from the WEC. He’s beat all the top contenders, so he’s more deserving of a title shot. He’s real exciting. He’s young and hungry, so I know I‘ve got my hands full. I know it will be a good one [fight]. He’s a good fighter, so I’m going to go in there and do everything I’ve got to do to win.”
