    -------------------

    I just feel horrible about betraying the fans. It's never a huge injury, but they seem to keep happening right before the date of the fight. I really don't get injured that often. It's hard to defend myself , but I really don't have a "glass body".

    Definitely, Kawajiri. He is ranked 13 and he is the perfect opponent for me to show the world what my level is. I match up very well against wrestlers.

    His striking offers no danger to me. He only attempt submissions with no intention of finishing and his ground and pound has no power. Even if we go to the ground, I know I can escape if I need to. I plan to keep it standing. I am confident on the ground also, but I want to give fans a show.

    I actually heard from some people that there is a possibility this matchup happens. I haven't heard more since I got that news. I think because of the difference in ranking it most likely wont happen. You never know with the UFC so I always stay prepared.

    I did do some extra training on landing my counter right for Puig, but in general I don't really emphasis one aspect. Even my counter knees is something that just happens intuitively.

    I agree that the knee is one of the most powerful weapons in MMA, but I wouldn't call it my special move. Its just one move in my repertoire. I use it no differently from a punch. It is just a natural movement. If I had to say what my best attack is, it would be my right straight and my right to the body.

    I think a little differently from my coach. I believe I am the best striker in the UFC featherweight division. I am good on the ground, but there are fighters better than me there. I consider myself a well rounded striker.

    Of course, I want to fight as much as possible. I have had bad luck. Honestly, I don't see any fighter having more skills than me just more experience.

    One fighter is Chan Sung Jung. His skills, mental game, and toughness is the best in the division. I also love B.J Penn. I think his style is awesome and he was someone I looked up to and formed my dreams around.

    It is a bit long, but I really want to say this. I will repay back my fans with a beautiful performance. I always fight to end my opponent. Its not my style to win fights in boring fashion. I fight in a way that the fans will come back to see my next fight.

    His striking is very good, but of course that's a bold statement. That being said, I can't hate him for being confident, as much as Mcgregor annoys me something, his self belief is a powerful tool. Superboi just needs to temper his confidence with an understanding of his strengths and weaknesses.

    I'd love if he got to fight on the Korea card. If he doesn't get Kawajiri like he wants maybe Maximo Blanco?

    He's good but too wild. Hopefully with age he'll get to a point in his career where he is. But right now, he's not.

    I love this kid (check my past posts) but it's time for him to fight again.

    No talk, just fight now. Not that he was a talker before but it's coming up on the anniversary of his first ufc fight and he needs to get back in there.

    He's probably gonna want to be a little more active in 2016, that mandatory 2 year military service is a bitch.

    His top games good, but his wrestling is not high level enough.

    He'd get knocked out against Conor att his stage of his career... who knows, maybe in the future.
