“I just need an impressive performance, more of myself grinding out beat downs and being more aggressive for the finish and just putting a lot of pressure on (B.J.) Penn.”

“As you could see from the first fight (against Georges St. Pierre), I gave him a better fight than anybody else.”

“I have vast improvement in my stand up game, my Jiu-Jitsu game is off the charts right now, and I’m just a better fighter all around, and the second time that we match up I’ll beat him.”
