“I didn’t get into this game because of the sport, or because of sport. I was never interested in sport fighting. When I started training for combat sports, for self- defense, it was never to win a national title or never to win anything like that. I don’t give a shit about that.
I done it to be able to defend myself in any situation that I found myself in. Because I felt if I was finding myself in any situation, I wanted to be able to be comfortable in them.
That’s why I began doing this: to be comfortable in uncomfortable situations.”
