“I've been training more boxing, Muay Thai, knees, elbows... I want to put on a very interesting show for my friends. Bisping has a great style, but I'm going to try to knock him out in the second round”, he said, but aware that his opponent poses a danger. “One wrong move and the guy catches you, it’s over.”
