In the mean time, you are undefeated within the UFC however didn’t get an opportunity to battle Henry Cejudo earlier than he retired. Do you take a look at that as one thing you missed out on, and would you prefer to battle him if he ever returned to the Octagon? 

He ran away, so I don’t take into consideration him in the mean time. If he decides to come back again I can retire him once more. 

TJ Dillashaw is at present serving his 2-year ban. When he returns, do you see a potential battle in opposition to him? What do you consider his ban? 

He accepted his ban and admitted he was dishonest. I want I might beat the juiced-up model of TJ, however now he’ll in all probability must comply with guidelines so it will likely be even harder for him.
