“I don’t care if I have to throw two kicks and move or get in and throw up pounds of power and give them up. I’ll do anything I need to. I’m not worried about performance. best in terms of career, I I’m worried about winning.My mindset is that I have work to do and I will do anything I need to do to achieve it.

When I call him this time his whole body is going to vibrate, he will understand. I come to do what I do best and that is to cause pain. If I have to fight a dog, I fight a dog. It will be a different story this time. “
