"I feel great, man. All my camp, Mike Dolce, everybody got me in great shape. I feel much, much better than last time. We're still four weeks out, and I'm ready to fight tonight. I can't wait, and I'm very excited. I'm training like this, the fight is going to be easy. ... I'm going to knock him out. Either I'm going to knock him out or I'm going to submit him, but this fight is not going to decision. All due respect to Martin Kampmann and his camp, but it's my time baby."
