"DJ is fast, but he's fast for 135 - welcome to 125. Things change, we're a little quicker. So, I'm not super worried about it. I don't think he's any quicker than I am. ... You've got to be able to out-wrestle DJ. That's a big part of it. No matter what, you're going to be in a wrestling match of sorts. My gameplan is going to be a little different than Dominick Cruz had.
(Fans) have no idea. They're used to Demetrious being fast, he's going to be even faster now because he's at 125. People that are small, most of us are that fast - at least the top guys. We're all quick. It's going to be something that people - it's going to blow their minds."
