    Translation :

    - He's happy about the win but has mixed feelings about the whole thing. He understands Dana is not happy because the whole card was a bunch of decisions and he blames the main event

    - He could have been more agressive but he felt Rozenstruik was waiting for the counter. His coach and him were expecting way more agression and were surprised by his passivity

    - He's a cautious type of fighter. He has never had a black eye his whole career

    - A few regrets : A submission attempt he could have pursued, a few strikes that rocked Rozenstruik but briefly

    - He laughs about having to ask his coach fernand lopez to repeat what he's saying to him during the fight

    - He felt very comfortable and dominant during the exchanges. He felt he could have countered him if Rozenstruik had been more agressive

    - They were expecting to win more dominantly to have negociations leverage with the UFC but its seems it's not the case.

    - He's happy about his fan base growing up. He wishes he could have given them more emotions despite the great feedback. "I'm a newcomer and you believe in me, so it's an honor, thank you".

    He's very well spoken in french and articulate, quite lucid and humble in his analysis

    When 2 counter punchers decide to stick to the game-plan, especially at heavyweight, these things can happen.
