During his recent interview with MMAFighting, Renzo said, fighting is his life and after winning this fight, he will not stop now:
“You’re talking to a guy who loves to fight,” he said. “If someone comes to my front door and says he came here to fight me, we’ll move the furniture from my beautiful living room and we’ll make a match right then. If there is a life after this one, I hope they allow spirits to fight.”
