As soon as I knock him over. The little basic things I could have done to make sure I could have come out in the first round and everyone would kiss me.But God works in mysterious ways and he is not ready, my son.

“He let me sit down and take a nap and rest me for a moment because I’m working my ass out of this camp with this humility that people want to show me. I’m a new man I do not care. I’ve been to hell and back, and now I’m here, reborn, and I’m here to take over.

“There’s only so much humility a man can go through. I’ve been through everything, right? I got my belt torn off – I do not have to go back and dig all those things up. But when I look back and look at that, then I did not do badly at first.I had fun in there, I had a good camp week.

“I started to loosen up more towards the match, which was fun. It was really good to be back, I have to be honest. Except for the second round. At second, I still have some doubts about why I went back. ”

“What I’ve always done is tackle the UFC,” Ferguson said. “I’m a shot caller in the UFC. Every time I want a fight, I always make myself presentable. My relationship with Dana (White) is decent. I might say a few things and act on them, but it’s not mine. revenge. How I defend myself. It’s that I can talk and have balls. Be a man. For a while I felt I should keep quiet and earn my respect and worth, but I stopped worrying. about all that shit.

“When I’m ready to fight, I’m going to let the UFC know, and I guarantee you they’ll also let me know, ‘Hey, that’s what we have. I was ready for (Islam) Makhachev in Abu Dhabi if some things were a little different.
