“I just want to say, all these guys like Donald Cerrone that say ‘I want to fight, I want to fight’ and all this, and everyone’s praising him for all the shit he’s saying, ‘I want to do this, I want to do that.’ I don’t even want to say his name, let’s just say that fucking Cowboy, he’s like, ‘I want to fight.’ This is all a sales pitch, and fans like that.
I’m not trying to downplay him because he’s doing his thing. He’s doing great, he’s fighting a lot, but all these things he’s doing, and all these things he’s trying to do, ‘I’m fighting five time a year.’ It’s an act. I already did everything he’s trying to do.
Fighting five times a year? I’ve done that the whole time I’ve been here. My first year in the UFC I fought five times. The year before the UFC, I fought five times and every time since then it’s been three to five times a year up until these last few years. The only difference is that I wasn’t sitting there talking it up. So, the goals he’s setting? I already did that years ago, the only difference is that he’s talking about it and selling it to everybody. That shit’s already been done.”
