“There’s a Mexican Independence Day card coming up and I lost a fight. I look at this defeat and it was a fair defeat for Henry Cejudo, but I believe he can face a better version of me. I had revenge against Joseph Benavidez, Urijah faber, against the entire Team Alpha Male in which I had to finish them off one by one to keep my title.
