"It's all good."
Stipe Miocic spoke with MMAjunkie about his fight with Junior dos Santos at TUF: Brazil 3 Finale being switched to Fabio Maldonado after dos Santos was injured. Check out the highlights:
On his opponent changing due to JDS' injury: "(Dos Santos is) the fight I wanted, but it's all good. I'm excited. He's a tough dude. He's going to bring the fight, and I'm glad I got the fight. Hopefully (dos Santos) heals up fast and everything goes well (for me) May 31."
On having a lower-profile opponent: "It's whatever the UFC wants me to do (if I win). the end of the day, it's a fight and anything can happen. It's the same mentality as (if I was fighting) JDS, just a different person. I'm going in there to win, and I don't care how I do it."
