I have demonstrated that I am worthy of this rematch. I hope UFC officials grant my request. If you want, I'm ready to fight in International Fight Week. I fought him with five days notice, I didn't have time to train. I know what I'm capable of, that I can put on a much better fight than the first and that I can beat him.
