What They Say


"This is a blood feud. This goes back to a brotherhood. We were eight years together every single day, side by side, couldn't leave each other -- best friends.

"Now, we're the biggest bitter enemies. He's the one person on Earth that I don't give a s***. Anytime I see him, I want to send that guy straight to hell and luckily I get to do it in the UFC Octagon next Saturday night on Pay-Per-View and it's gonna be bad, man. I'm gonna make him pay. I'm gonna make him suffer for backstabbing me."


“It’s so amazing that I’m going to get to punch this guy in the face. And I really don’t like this guy, and I’m going to get paid for it – a big amount of money. 

“And I can’t wait just to expose him once again to the world. He’s a charlatan.”
