“I ended up hitting up Sean Shelby and Dana White, saying I’m gonna knock TJ out and then go down and fight Mighty Mouse. That was my original thought. TJ stole that from me, stole everything from me. If the UFC wanted that fight to prosper, they would have made that fight happen. They don’t want that to happen. They already moved on. They want me to be the champ, that’s why the gave me the rematch. They called me and offered me the fight in March, TJ turned it down and made all these excuses and I had to wait all the way until August to fight him. I was ready to go way before that.”
