Do you have any heroes? The time has passed for me to have heroes. Now I need to be a hero for someone else.
What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? For me to fight in UFC, it's like an actor getting a part in a major Hollywood movie. For me to fight Demian Maia in the UFC, it's like getting the starring role in the Hollywood movie.
