"Lyoto (Machida) is a pretty crafty guy, but I believe I'm pretty crafty as well. Everyone keeps asking me, 'How are you going to figure out this tough puzzle?' My answer to that is that I feel as if I'm a pretty tough puzzle to figure out. So, I really just need to focus on what I need to do to win the fight and let everything take care of it's self.
When you look at guys like Georges St. Pierre and Anderson Silva, guys who have defended their belt nine times, six times, stuff like that, these guys are awesome. They've accomplished so much. So, right now I'm moving on a pretty fast pace, but I won't be satisfied until I'm the best."
