But he's not stressing it...
Stipe Miocic spoke last night following his win over Fabio Maldonado at TUF Brazil 3 Finale. Check out the highlights:
On a potential bout with Junior dos Santos: "If it happens, it happens. Right now, I'm happy with the [win] I got tonight. That's all I was worried about, was tonight. I'm going to go back home and hang out with my family and see what the UFC wants me to do."
On whether he was disappointed at the quick win: "Oh God, no. I'm happy. That's fine. I get to hang out here in Sao Paulo tomorrow and leave tomorrow night, so I'm happy to get to see the city."
On his hesitation before pouncing on Maldonado: "He's a game fighter, and I didn't know if he was playing possum. It's a five-round fight. I just wanted to make sure – you know, he likes to call guys into him against the cage. I just wanted to make sure. But once he caught that second right, I knew it was over."
On the knockdown: "I just caught him with a good punch. It was a good night for me."
