“I am the champion, but I know that I lost my last fight, even if it did not have to be disputed. So I have to win before I feel safe with my title . I am champion because the fight was unfair, but in my mind I lost . People who love me respond easily to the question of whether I am the champion or not, but for me it is more difficult. Minutes before starting UFC Tonight Dana White called me to tell me that I was the champion again. He told me that he understood that this is not how he wanted to be, but he congratulated me. But you know how I am, you know that I am a very competitive person. I think things are going to get better and I’ll feel better with the title when I defend it .”
