"Honestly, since I knew that would happen, I haven't looked at any MMA media, I haven't turned on my Twitter, I haven't done any of that stuff, because I knew there would be a lot of negative energy out there. But, you know what? To all of those people out there, we'll see on Saturday. I'm very confident about the way it's going to look. I'm not even worried about it. I don't care. I know in my heart that I'm a new person at Middleweight, and I'm going to shock the world. I'm going to climb to the top of the ranks. This here is just the beginning for me. I'm confident in myself, I don't care what anybody else says."
