“Our gym has the saying,” You can look down on your opponent, but don’t look down on the game. Otherwise, the game will look down on you. ” So I definitely raise my hand in this fight and turn my chin down. But I know I’m a better fighter. That’s fine because I know it’s the best fighter of all. I put my elbows on him, put him down, hit him, he can give up or ring his ass for 15 minutes. “
