As he continued speaking, Cody stated that he understood Dana White's strategy for the big event.

“For me, that says a lot. I'm excited about what the UFC is doing. I understand what Dana (White) and the bosses, Hunter (Campbell), want to do: have people in that place from start to finish. I can guarantee that I will go out and give the best performance of my life. For me, (fighting first) eliminates the guessing game. Being able to prepare (for a set time). I’m excited to open (the card)”, he concluded.
