I imply, man, that’s gonna be explosive and I assume whoever has one of the best sport plan I believe is gonna win.”
On which fighter has extra benefits

However the dedication I believe goes to be an enormous issue on this battle. I imply, look, it’s laborious to select a winner. It truly is. That is going to be an excellent and a tricky battle and I positively wish to be there for it.”
