From Tatame.com:

“It’ll be a great fight. I’m very excited, I can’t wait… It’s going to be great”, said the fighter, in conversation with the reporter Cristiane Ripari, after the press conference. “I saw what he did with BJ Penn and I’ll have to beat him a lot, do my game”, said Thiago, who wasn’t expecting such domination over the Hawaiian. “I expected and didn’t expected, understood? (laughs). I knew he would win, but not this way. He’s much bigger than the BJ, a better athlete, and the sport today, in that level, you have to be the best athlete”, said “Pitbull”, defining his strategy to the fight against GSP in a sentence: “I’ll go there to knock him out”.
