Quotes after the jump...
On MMA's growth in the U.K.:
We got Bisping and Dan Hardy and them guys. I've met Bisping a few times and Dan Hardy, another great fighter. You know what? MMA's growing, UFC's growing in the U.K. and I think, give it a couple of more years it'll be a lot more...it'll be just like boxing is. England's such a small place and we have so many good fighters from there. So, it's gonna be..it's getting better and better like boxing. Boxing's growing well over there and I think MMA's gonna grow like boxing.
On GSP vs. Diaz:
Nick Diaz is strong and it's gonna be a tough fight for GSP. I've seen GSP train over here and he looks strong. But to be honest, in my eyes, I just don't think there's anyone out there to beat GSP. I mean, you can put anyone in front of him and he'll destroy them."
