-I'm swimming a lot. I'm actually at the pool right now. Getting tired's for old people. There's no time in 15/25 minutes to get tired.
-(On what's next if he beats Pettis) Hopefully another fight.
-The most important bonus check is my win bonus.
-I'm blessed to have the Roufusport gym right in my backyard.
-Roufus helps me with my personal life, balancing stardom.
-I'm a fun guy. That's how I am in real life.
-It was never my gameplan to act goofy, get people to underestimate me. Just wanted to be myself, be comfortable.
-I've been training up in Alexandria with Marty Morgan.
-I'm a nice guy outside of the house. That was an extraordinary situation.
-It is what it is. My family and friends know who I am. I made a mistake, and I'm paying for it. Twitter/FB blowing up.
-I saw it on TV, and I didn't like it. I want to make my parents proud, like anyone else in the sport.
