He said, "It’s f**king déjà vu. It’s exactly the same. There’s no difference between it.” He continued, “You know, all the media talking about, ‘this is horrible, this is disgusting, this should never happen’… You know all these guys that want to act like they’re big UFC f**king guys. Nobody was touching this sh*t back in the day, nobody would, you know, write about it, and nobody took us serious. Nobody said that this would ever be a real sport. It’s absolutely déjà vu, I love this sh*t. This is what I love.”
