"I know I still have doubters and I’m that much more motivated to prove those guys wrong and to make some new fans every time I fight. Even in the Sherk fight, I wanted to win of course, but I think I still saw it as a competition. I still saw it as me going in there and doing my best, and hopefully both of us go in there and give a great performance. But now I want to destroy my opponent before he destroys me and that’s the main thing that switched over. There are no bad intentions personally, but in the ring, I want to destroy my opponent. It’s a fight, not a competition."
