They contacted my manager again last week and said they were going to eliminate 75 athletes, and I was one of them. What I am going to do? If they decide to cut me, I can’t do anything.

Sergio Pettis, who I beat in the UFC, is fighting at 135 there, so it’s not out of this world. But it would have to be a great deal, for sure.
