"(Roger Gracie) has been on the world stage in jiu-jitsu so many times that I don’t think (my fighting experience) will be as big of an advantage as people might think.But Roger’s never really been hit, and I’m going to put it on him."
"I just intend to not give him the opportunity to get a submission. I’m going to win this fight, and I have to win it because it’s a "do or die" situation for me. Roger’s really early in his career, so a loss for him won’t be that devastating, but for me it’s devastating. And so I’m not going to allow it to happen. So the fans can expect a win from me."
