The only thing I can do is fight. Win or lose, I'm here every damn time.
People ask me, 'Why don't you take time off?' but the working class doesn't take time off. They're out there working every day. That's what I do, too. I want them to know there is hope, and I'm out there just like they are.
I could definitely make 145. But if 'Cowboy' is going to 145, I'm going after somebody who matters.
I remember being a kid and saying, 'One day, I'm going to have a ranch. One day, one day, one day.' And now, I'm fighting in the UFC. I'm here making the money, and that one day is here. I can finally go get those things that I want.
Colorado's home for me.
Dos Anjos, his wrestling and grappling is supposed to be good, but I feel my Jiu Jitsu, wrestling and striking is way better. I'm better than him all across the board.
I just take the fights and do what I love.
I took up scuba diving, and my next big thing is BASE jumping.
My time with the WEC was great for me; it was great to be able to get big-show experience, headline fight-cards, and fight for world titles.
I own everything. I own my RV, my house, my trucks, my boat. Everything is paid for.
I remember kickboxing and traveling the world when I was young. I would go to Japan or Africa, and I would go for the experience. As soon as I got off the plane, we'd go have a good time, party. Fighting was just the outlet of what I was doing there.
I'll go to 185 pounds; who cares? Just give me fights.
I'm not worried about a title. It's just go and have fun.
I eat a lot of candy. I can't survive without candy.
I enjoy fighting. It's one of my favorite things to do in the world, so I'm just enjoying every minute of it.
Fighting's not me - it's just something that I do.
This sport gives you the highest highs and the lowest lows.
I don't take much pride in fake fighting.
There is nothing more I love more than being in a throw-down on a Saturday night.
You don't have to get ready if you stay ready, alright? I'm always in the gym, always training, all the time.
I didn't really have intentions of fighting in MMA; it just kind of fell into place. Once I started fighting, though, I loved it, and I walked away from kickboxing right away.
