"I feel great. I was a little bit disappointed with the mix up and not getting the title fight for my next one, but it is what it is and I'm looking forward to the next fight. The thing about it is, the decision was made before I was even contacted. So, the decision wasn't mine. Things happen and it's a bump in the road, but I'm excited for my next fight and it doesn't knock me too far down the ladder. I was just ready to fight, I was really excited to fight Georges St. Pierre in October and I was disappointed that he hurt his knee. It's just delaying the inevitable, I'm going to get the title shot and I think that I'm definitely a tough opponent for Georges, or whoever has the belt. So, I'm just going to keep training, keep my focus, and keep looking forward to the future."
