I want people to come to the site and feel like they are a part of my career, not just a spectator. My fans are most important to me just, I've always have said that my goal is to be the kind of fighter who sells out Madison Square Garden, that draws fans to the arenas because of my style, power and heart. I love my fans an I want them to be close to me through my fights and now through my new website."
