“I’m not like that confident in other walks of life, I’m really not. Yeah I know I’ve been with her 11 years but when I first met me missus she threw the lips on me. That’s how like little confidence I have of myself in other things but when it comes to MMA like I just know I’m special. I was meant to do this, I was meant to get in a cage and fight lad.”
