"I have no idea (if it's a number-one contender match) to be honest man, I'm not sure. I know the popular rumor going around is that this fight is for the number-one contendership, and all that stuff. But, unless I personally hear Dana White say it or read in an interview, hear or see myself Dana White saying that this is for the number-one contendership, or this is for the title shot, if I don't hear him say it, then I don't believe it. As far as where it puts me, who knows. It's not really up for me to say."
