I understand he doesn’t need money to fight – then retire. (Expletive) go away, man. You want to fight at 170, you want make a superfight, well we can handle that.”

On his fight with Nurmagomedov being canceled several times: [Nurmagomedov is] (expletive) lazy….There is a right way to do it [cut weight], and I think the old-school way that they’re doing it needs to be upgraded.”
