I don’t think about the last fight anymore. Even if you win or lose, it doesn’t matter. If you win, you are not going to step ahead of your opponent just because you have the victory. If you lose, it’s the same because it’s a new fight, a new fighter, eight years ago. It is a long race, and I have seen many young fighters stop in the middle of the road, but they have their reasons, and I respect that, “the experienced fighter from Bellator.

When you have your own lifestyle, you enjoy this, and it means that you still have the motivation to motivate yourself, to be here in a great competition, one of the best tournaments, which is the grand prize.
