:26 secs, on defending the title in front of a nationwide audience on free TV: "I'm real excited about it because I know it's gonna be on free TV. I know it's gonna get to a whole different audience because of that. This is the first fight at the Verizon Center. I know there's a lot of fans out here in D.C. and I get to come out here and train with Team Lloyd Irvin every here and there and train with Mike Easton over here. I know that I got a lot of support out here so I'm pumped."
1:00, on combating Demetrius Johnson's game: "I think that I have a different style that's hard to deal with for people too. I move just as much as he does. People have a hard time gettin' a hand on me. I'm quick too. I have a size advantage on him. When everything's said and done, I still have a 6-inch reach advantage on him that he has to figure out how out get past. I know how ot use my range and I think that's what's gonna make the difference in this fight."

1:30, on combating possible nerves from his 1st UFC fight & ring rust: "Yes, I've had a 2 year layoff, but within that 2 years, I've gotten healthier. Everyone else is fighting, gettin' beat up. I've been abel to study guys, focus on their little mistakes, and just watch them and see all the things I can take advantage of. I'm ready man. I train with Dominick Cruz, the champ. He's always in shape, pushes me to another level. I'm just ready: ready to show the world what I got."
