“For a year, I’ve been waiting for my (UFC) debut. Now I’m here and I want to stay as active as possible. I want to fight as much as possible. My fans know that. My fans know that I usually stay active, so the goal would be to just recover a little bit, rest, and then I would love to fight in Shanghai beginning of December. I already spoke to Dana White about it. I told Dana White to give me the opportunity to fight in Shanghai. And Dana White said, ‘Sure, let’s go.’
“Let’s put the foot to the gas. I miss Shanghai. I lived in Shanghai for a long time. I’m 10-0 in Shanghai. I never lost a fight in Shanghai. I have lots of fans in Shanghai. I would love to go out there to China and show a great fight. Dana White says it’s going to work, so I’ll see you in Shanghai.”
