He was a very tough opponent and he really resisted every one of my blows very well. It was 25 minutes at full steam and that really is tiring. Anyway, we both finished very well and we had gasoline to go on. We collide heads and automatically both start to bleed. I think that conditioned us. Now, I’ll see what comes next for me.

I had to fight a lot of guys, I mean tough opponents. Robert Whittaker, Jake Ellenberger, Rory McDonald, Johny Hendricks to get to where I am, and then this guy (Khamzat Chimaev) just steps over everyone. I think it is a slap in the face for all those who have made an effort, “he mentioned in the previous one, annoyed by that situation.
