Tai Tuivasa spoke with reporters after his UFC 225 win over Andrei Arlovski. Highlights are below per MMAjunkie

On beating Arlovski by decision: “I’m a professional athlete. People ask a f**king stupid question: ‘What if it goes to the second round or the third?’ But I don’t train for two minutes. I train for five fives. And I did well. I think I did well.”

On coming out to Celine Dion’s ‘My Heart Will Go On’: “It’s a f**king hit. I like to walk out to good songs. I’ve always done that, since I started my fighting. I listen to slow music, in general. And f-ck, ‘My Heart Will Go On,’ it’s a hit. You see the crowd? Everyone’s watched Jack.”

On where the fight places him in the rankings: “I don’t give a s**t. It obviously puts me wherever – where does it put me? I don’t know. But I’m think I’m in the top-10 now. That’s good s**t. That’s f**king mad. You never think someone where I’m from would get to the top 10 of the UFC, but I’m just very happy and grateful to be here. But, like I said, I like to put on a good show, and I’d like to continue doing that.”

On the longer fight: “It gives me more of a fight to look at. I don’t watch other people’s performances, I don’t want other people fight. I like to watch my own fights. And now I get to watch three rounds of it, and I can guarantee my next fight will be more exciting and more to show.”
