“You can’t tell me he wasn’t looking for a way out,” Battle said. “He looked at me just a second ago looking like he wanted to fight. You wanna fight now, but you couldn’t fight a second ago? Bullsh*t. F*ckin’ p*ssy b*tch motherf*cker. I’m that dude. That’s what happens when dudes get in the cage with me. They look for ways out. They want to talk big. They want to talk all this sh*t, but once they feel this strength, they don’t want to be in here with me. He was looking for the first way out possible.”
