Good on the fight’s key moment

“My pressure, power and mindset of going in there and not caring if he threw punches or shot for a takedown (were the difference). I sat in the pocket and looked to counter, cut distance and land shots.”

Good on carrying training over to the fight

“I believe everything that led me to tonight allowed me to have that performance – wins and losses. I just had to replicate the training camp, everything that my coaches have been instilling in me with training, and ultimately it’s just mindset. The training is still there, but it comes down to the mindset going into the fight.”

Good on what he wants next

“I believe in this sport, you are only as good as your last win. So it’s great to have that as my last performance to solidify my ascent into the top 10 eventually. I do want to get a crack at a top 10 opponent eventually, but I know it all depends on my performance – and I’m very pleased with mine tonight.”
