via <a href=""></a>
"I think (Michael Bisping) is an all around fighter. He's good standing up and he's good on the ground I really don’t see any weaknesses."

"He better come well prepared for all my strengths. I'm a totally different animal inside the Octagon. I totally change my character and become a fighter."

"I think that the skill and talent are obvious, but in the end I want to beat him with my will and my heart."

"The fans can expect to see a real crowd pleasing event."
