Here are highlights:
On being called out: "More guys talking about me is good. Talking good or talking bad, but talking about me is good."
On if he will accept the challenge: "My name is on the list, like Brian Stann is coming as part of the new generation. I'm so glad to give the opportunity for any guys in the UFC. If the UFC wants it, why not?"
On if Watson is worthy of fighting him: "I think if the fight is interesting, we need to do, whatever the record. The public is the boss. If the public wants to see it, we need to do it."
