Six years later, the North American opened up and evaluated his chances of returning to Ultimate, despite currently being king of the bantamweights (up to 61,2kg.) in the UFC. ONE Championship.

“No (I wouldn’t return to the UFC), I think I love the flyweight division. Even if I went back to the UFC, I wouldn't go back to flyweight, I'd probably go to bantamweight, and even then, you know, I've done this for so long at the highest level, you know? I was the protagonist of the UFC cards, I am the protagonist of the ONE Championship. Now I'm participating in jiu jitsu tournaments”, declared the athlete in an interview with Michael Bisping.
