“I would fight again. I have the hunger. My boxing coaches hit me up this morning, so we will be boxing here in a little bit. I did some strength and conditioning, so I’m in great shape. It was one of those things where you don’t have to fight, but it’s like, I still have that competitive edge, that competitive will that I’ve had my entire life.

“I think one thing that I will be doing is I will be competing in jiu-jitsu tournaments. That’s not as stressful on the body. I’ve always wanted to do a Bare Knuckles fight. I’ve talked to the Bare Knuckles owner. We talked a few times about possibly doing a fight. I may have to bring that by Vince before doing it. I stay ready so I can possibly do one of them.

“I think if I do MMA, it will definitely have to be under Bellator because I’m still contracted by Bellator. Bare Knuckles, I don’t know if I would be able to do it based on my Bellator contract, but we have talked about it, and jiu-jitsu I will definitely do.”
