"I think they took a lot away when they said we're all going (to the UFC). If all those guys have gone over there, eventually we're going. Obviously, we're the last two, we're in the finals of the tournament, so we're going to get our chance in the UFC. So, it kind of takes a little bit of the - there's no surprise to it. We're going. It doesn't matter if it's now or in six months. I've got some business to take care of with Josh. If I can finish with the belt that has Fedor's name on it and 'Bigfoot' and Josh Barnett and all those guys, that's a huge accomplishment for me. For a guy who has only been fighting for two and a half years now."
