In an interview with MMA Fighting, Ronaldo Souza said that he plans on becoming the UFC middleweight champion and he only needs two fights to do it. Here are highlights:

On fighting the champion if he beats Kelvin Gastelum: “If you analyze it, there’s no better option. Chris Weidman can’t fight now, he’s hurt. Kelvin Gastelum is here to fight, I’m here to fight, you know? Here’s what’s going to happen: in two fights I’ll become the UFC middleweight champion. No disrespect, it’s just me being confident. In two fights, I’ll become the UFC middleweight champion. I’m working for that, and I believe in it, and it will happen. Kelvin is a tough fight, difficult, complicated, but I’m here to defeat anyone and I will win two fights to become UFC champion.”

On the fight between Robert Whittaker and Yoel Romero: “I just hope it’s a good fight and the better man wins. I want to be there, front row, watching who will win. I will fight the winner of this fight. I’m not rooting for any of them. Whoever has a better gameplan will win that night.”
