"The first time I heard (about the Rampage fight), I was really excited because I wanted to face him. I think it's my moment and time to shine, so I'm really excited to fight Rampage."May 28th, live on Pay-per-view from Las Vegas, Nevada:
"I know I'm going to break his will, I know I'm going to beat Rampage. I've been training real hard and my conditioning and my skills and technique, striking and kicking are a lot better."
"I'm not going to underestimate him; he has heavy hands and he's got great knockout power. I know that Rampage is not really motivated to fight with me because I'm out of his league; but I promise you, it's going to be a war and a great fight."
