On the injury that forced him out after his first UFC win: "My knee was injured. They said they'd possibly have to operate, but the physical therapist wanted to see if it could recover on its own, and thankfully it has. I'm back to training."

On his new weight class: "I will have to suffer and starve, but I will go back to 70 kilos, lightweight."
