    Would a scrap with marlon moraes interest you should he sign with the UFC, or are you only currently interested in fighting a top 5 ranked UFC BW at the moment?

    my first two fights were at 150. i didnt really realize much on why people cut weight. i never cut weight as an amateur. So my second fight i came in at 150 and the other guy came in at 170 the next day(fight day). i lost that fight by split to decision and my coach spoke to me and basically learned he hard way that i need to start cutting weight.

    Damn, you ain't f*ckin' around with your rize in the UFC. You looked amazing against Faber. Lookin' forward to seeing you throw down with the current big 3.

    The big 3 got similar stylez & used it to rize to the top... what are some of the similarities & differencez in your style?

    Thoughts on Cody Garbrandt and TJ Dillashaw`s performances in their last fights and was there anything that surprised you in both those fights?

    c
    Tj had a great game plan, i guess that is why bryan caraway wanted to fight him so bad. Cody surprised me, thought cruz got in his head but definitely didnt. he put on a good performance.

    Did not making it into the tuf house put a chip on your shoulder at all? I was pissed that you, and Dennis fought each other in the entry round since I like both of you guys, and I was excited to see two Puerto Ricans represent in the tuf house

    How bad did Faber's eye poke affect you during and after the fight?

    even a better match up, cause he likes to stand and bang. not hit and run.

    Hey Jimmie,

    Bummed your not fighting next week but totally get it that you gotta make the right moves for your own career. What food do you miss most when your in camp and close to a fight? Best of luck in 2017 and looking forward to seeing you fight soon
