"I am focused on my career. I'm focused on training. Of course, there are these rumors going. All this testing, if I look on the bright side, you are taking the critics' word away. Because, I will be the most tested fighter - ever. So, I can use that argument in my favor.
First off, Brock, I see him as the best wrestler in the Heavyweight division. He's a tremendous athlete, and he's a very strong, big guy. He's gonna bring it. I mean, looking at his fights, looking at his character, he's a very aggressive character. The thing is, I like it that way. I like challenges. That's what brought me into K-1, which is a different sport, so to speak. That's what brought me the K-1 title, two years after I went into K-1, and I'm sure this attitude is going to bring me the UFC title as well."
