I got a lot of fights left in me. I’ve still got the competitive edge and that’s what it’s all about. And I still love the sport enough to want to compete. See? You can love the sport, but if you don’t love the sport enough to compete you better get out of there.
It’s been really good, it’s been a blessing in disguise. When I started the team up, when I joined, JZ, Villefort and Jorge Santiago…we didn’t know what it was going to create, but whatever happened..this synergy or whatever, everybody just came together. And now the team that has come about because of it is amazing. And I’m just happy to be a part of all of it.
I’m real excited. I’ve been learning a lot. You’ve got some of the best stand-up strikers with Tyron Sprong and Alistair Overeem and those guys and everybody who they bring around for their connection back in Holland, so the stand-up game has just gotten ridiculous. And the ground game, you’ve got Braulio and whoever he brings to train with us and you’ve got Vitor Belfort…the legend. So, you know, there’s a lot of knowledge that’s getting passed around the camp.
