“I saw a couple blogs about Wanderlei Silva, he was laughing. Saying he’s not scared of me and this and that. I don’t think Wanderlei is scared of me at all. Why would he be? I’ve got greatness of respect for Wanderlei Silva. Early on in my career, I used to watch a lot of Wanderlei Silva back in PRIDE, he’s always been one of my favorite fighters. I got nothing but respect for the guy.”

“So to be fighting a legend like Wanderlei Silva for me is a great honor. He says he’s not scared of me; of course he’s not scared of me. He’s fought some of the biggest names in the world. But make no mistake; I’m not scared of him either. It’s just another fight and I think it’s a very winnable fight for me. I’m going to go out there and give it my best and I’m planning on winning in Australia.”
