"The biggest thing to prove to myself is that I belong with the elite fighters. I should be fighting the elite fighters, which means fighting in the UFC. I just want to fight in the UFC period I don't care if I'm fighting top-10, top-five opponents. If you're in the UFC, you're fighting top fighters and I just want to prove I belong in there. If I lose this fight I deserve to be cut. And I'll be pretty honest actually, the way I performed in my last fight I could be cut right now. They didn't have to give me this chance against Anthony Perosh. But the UFC gave me this chance and I want to prove I can be much better than I did last time. But I want to prove to myself that I can be in the UFC and that I belong there."
