Going by the rankings in MMA I'm in fourth place behind (Junior dos Santos), Overeem and Velasquez. Winning this fight will probably bump me up a bit but I never liked thinking about positions in rankings. But I put myself amongst the best, and my pathway has been drawn in pursuit of the title. I hope to fight for the belt still in 2012. After this fight, (perhaps) two or three more and then fight for the title.

After this fight with Roy Nelson, I think the ideal opponent would be Frank Mir and I'd like for it to happen in UFC Sao Paulo. After this fight I'll go to Brazil and stay for 45 days with Wanderlei, Rafael Cordeiro and Babalu for TUF Brazil. The training routine will be kept, I will only rest for a week and then return to my job. To fight in June, the month I beat Fedor, would be sensational. To fight in a football stadium, as it has happened with Pride in Yokohoma that had 95 to 100 thousand people watching Big Nog defeat Bob Sapp, would be crazy. But for now I'm thinking about my fight with Roy Nelson. We'll see what happens afterwards.
