“It’s great to have a joker like him that calls the attention of all the public to the division. So yeah, this is one of the things that I admire on him. I try not to get close to him, because he’s not a friend of mine. But this is my job. But especially with him it’s especially difficult, because he’s a joker. He’s kind of awkward, all the things he talks about me, but this is my job. I have to do this. If UFC sees this fight as the biggest of history, I just accept that we really need to promote this. always did promotion for my fights. Never something like this, but I’m happy that we’re doing it, that everybody is seeing this as the hugest fight of all times.”
