How excited are you for Unified MMA 28 on September 30 in Edmonton?
Man, I can’t even put into words how excited I am. I can’t wait to wrap that belt around my waist again.
How have your preparations been going so far?
Really good. I’ve been training my ass off. I’m not the kind of fighter who fakes it. I’m always making it, and September 30, I’m going to make it. My hands will be raised.
Is this the best that you’ve ever been?
Yes, sir. Every time I’m out there fighting, I’m the best that you’ve seen me. I’m like a fine wine — I’m always improving (laughs). As time goes by, I’m always getting better.
How do you end this fight?
I’m ready to go all five rounds. I’m ready for whatever. He’s coming down to my weight class. He’s got a lot of work to do just to fight. I’m going to butcher him. I don’t really like to predict the fights. I’m just ready to go, man. Wherever this fight goes, I’m ready.
What does that belt mean to you?
It means the world. To be just the second fighter to win a Unified MMA championship, that means a lot. This is my city. This is my city. I’m the best featherweight in Edmonton. I’m one of the best featherweights in Canada, if not the best. Now I’ve just got to prove it.
