“I feel like a good scrap would be, I think the guy from Congo [referring to Ngannou, who is actually from Cameroon], I think he just lost recently. Big unit, that’d be a good scrap. Then you’ve got Jon Jones, that’d be a good scrap.

”Yeah. I’d have to obviously have a couple of warm-up fights because you have to learn the submissions and stuff. But a fight’s a fight at the end of the day. Yeah man, I’d do it.”
