On Holm's growing rep: "I was on the street the other day, and some guy was like, 'Hey! Sign Holly Holm!' I was like, 'Yeah, I know. Everybody's telling me.' I haven't seen her fight, but I keep hearing about her. She's like the female Conor McGregor."
On Holm and McGregor: "I thought Conor McGregor was a heavyweight when I kept hearing about him for some reason. I don't know why I did, but I did. Holly Holm – I don't no what she looks like. I've never seen her fight. But I know who she is."
On UFC match makers Sean Shelby and Joe Silva's influence in the decision: "They know who's next. When it's time for Holly Holm, they'll let me know."
