“I like the stand up, you know. I cannot say ‘Oh I’ll take her down,’ no. I like the stand up and I think it’s more exciting. I like to knock people out, I like to punch people, I like to be standing. People think ‘Ah, she doesn’t have Jiu Jitsu.’ Man I compete Jiu Jitsu and I’m twice champion of the world and a purple belt. I got my brown belt in one year and I like to compete in wrestling. I like to compete fighting in Muay Thai. I think when you compete, you learn every day something. But always when I fight I like the stand up, but not because I don’t have ground, because I think it’s more exciting. I like to change punches, I like to be boxing and I like this. And for Ronda Rousey, man I will knock out her for sure and I’ll try, but you know you have to be ready for everything inside the Octagon. To have the opportunity to submit her, I will. To have the opportunity to knock her out, I will. You know, it’s a game. You have to be ready for everything and I’ll be ready for everything when I fight her for sure.”
