Fili on the fight’s key moment

“I was begging God. Man, I don’t understand (the split decision). I really feel like I didn’t perform as well as I could have. I’m my own hardest critic. If you scored that fight for him, I don’t know what fight you were watching. Respect to Jourdain. He was telling me I won the fight.”

Fili on having fun

“I was having fun out there and balancing that with listening to my coaches. You’ve got to find that balance between fighting smart, and then feeling it and having fun. I don’t want to have competitive fights. I want to blow people out of the water. I want to be dominant. This kid was really good. I really think Charles Jourdain is going to make a lot of waves in this sport.”

Fili on what he wants next

“I want a big name. I’m tired of people looking at me like I’m just a regular UFC fighter. I want a big name next. I’m going to go back and talk with my tram. A lot of guys just get on the mike and shout names. That’s not my style.”
