Dana White made the claim that because of your loss to Weidman there is no chance of a super fight between you and either Georges St-Pierre, if he comes back, or Jon Jones. Do you think that's true?
I have 10 more fights. Maybe we can still have a super fight and that's a good question…for Dana. [Laughs.]
For a long time, I have waited for the opportunity to fight Mr. Roy Jones. This is my personal goal and dream.
Earlier, you said you wouldn't fight Jon Jones. Are you still sticking to that?
I don't like the idea, but a fight is a fight.
There's also rumors about a fight with Roy Jones Jr. Are you still trying to make that happen?
Yeah. For a long time, I have waited for the opportunity to fight Mr. Roy Jones. This is my personal goal and dream. I need to talk to Dana about it because this is very important for my legacy.
Why do you say it's important for your legacy?
Because I remember for a long time, I would tell my father, "Dad, look, there's a Roy Jones fight tonight." I recall seeing his movements and people saying he was the best pound-for-pound boxer. I'm a big fan and I like the idea of fighting Roy Jones Jr.
And it would have to be a boxing match, right?
What is it that goes into your preparation process for a fight?
I start my training four months, maybe. The same techniques and team. I go here and there before heading back to Brazil for camp.
Looking back at your career, what was the one of the most memorable fights of your whole career? My first fight in Japan in Shooto 2 against Tetsuji Kato. It was my first belt.
What do you like to do in your down time?
I like to play soccer and paintball. I love paintball.
Do you play video games?
Yeah, I have the PlayStation 3. I just finished the last Tomb Raider.
Being a paintball fan, do you like first-person shooter games?
They're good, but not too much.
