"It's not every day that you get an opportunity to fight for a title in the UFC, so I'm thrilled that I got the call. Timing on these things isn't something that you can control, so you have to ‘roll with the punches' so to speak. Aldo is close to perfect as a fighter and I realize that I have shortcomings in my game. On paper it may not look like a good fight, but in MMA things happen that you can't predict on paper. I think the difference may come down to the mental game. If there's an opportunity for a takedown, I'll take advantage of it, but I'm very confident in my striking. So I don't mind if the fight stays standing."
