“Of course I wasn’t nervous [about losing my job after the loss to Eric Schafer in Sept. 2008]. I wasn’t nervous at all. Number one, I have been in the business for 10 years and second, it’s great to be in the UFC, man, but it’s not going to make or break me. The UFC is a great event to be a part of, but as far as me being a man, it’s not going to make or break me … of course, there is pressure to win your upcoming fight. First of all, I hate losing. We have to make sure that the mechanics, the training and all that stuff coincides together. So, you know, of course I want to win. So, there is some pressure on this next fight because I, personally, want to win. Other than that, that’s it.”
