Light weights in the USC congratulations thank you.
First of all what was it like you know out there you lot of pressure -- you that's a big fights before but this this is arguably the biggest but your career.
Yeah definitely pressure was on -- -- to get too caught up in the hype and just worry about what you know one amount and Dylan and you know again and again when was what I was therefore and now.
-- -- -- -- Ariel a lot of people were surprised that Frankie -- stand up what did you think including Dana white by the way who gave you good props in the post their press conference very impressive performance and and I think that this was -- are coming out party for Frankie but a lot of people were always talking about your wrestling skills and everything like that on the ground but does striking.
I mean -- Sean -- is no slouch on his feet he his head movement was it was it was not even apparent in the fight was doing nothing to its to counter your strikes never tried to take you down you just picking your spots for three rounds so.
To -- kept him a friend.
After fifteen minutes Frankie you you moved around your head moving your foot work.
How how much training party or did you do for this fight.
You know I've always pride myself on my conditioning -- I would say that and not.
Not nothing really changed you know I'm always in pretty good shape maybe in the -- those worried about my footwork you know and -- -- ten of the whole time -- -- fifteen minutes and ensuring.
Than any breaks I think that helped you know for for the fight markets.
But I was.
Surprised to see that you had a five inch reach advantage on on Sean -- how much of a factor was that.
And also training -- -- -- Ricardo -- team has a Gracie does that give you a lot more confidence in your stand up because you know to get taken down underground you you know how to -- play from down there.
Yeah absolutely you know -- -- I -- just a game now and I got you know some great college is behind me and that and that part of but my game it's -- confidence to know that -- for the taking down it's not in the world.
Not to mention your division one assists -- wrestling coach or Rutgers university so you're you're certainly and that adept at the ground game absolutely any Schatz is.
-- of that do you think that Sean shirk.
With gold with a knockout didn't want to take frankly -- -- ground just because he was afraid of frank he's ground game.
-- that he was afraid of his ground game that I I heard that.
Possibly he -- is concerned with making good showing in the US -- And putting on an exciting fight and that's why he kept its standing with -- I agree with that but that's why the consensus was where I was last in the bank.
On the great it's you know hands anyway and I it was going to -- minds when you jot down a guy.
It to be honest and I heard I heard it caught us say now and I -- it is talking about now that way and you know -- it's nice -- -- -- and around the fight and I really wasn't for -- mission so.
A -- thank you think shot -- saved by the bell there.
You job probably of and we talked a terrible but there's any -- said he felt the -- was in pretty good.
Is deafening pretty -- and I know he no time was up to maybe that's why wasn't and then let -- He really wasn't fends off of battle Guantanamo was squeezed on spoke -- manager yesterday EST Rivera and he was saying how.
Much -- -- roll your corner played with in the Floyd Mark Henry in Ricardo -- talk about heat heat -- -- situation to me -- you wouldn't stand in the pocket and slug and the guys mid flight talk you out of it can you take us through that.
Yeah I mean I doesn't measure in the fighting confidence is going up be -- little ball real cocky or -- you know -- you what's working you start.
Are going to too little too much and I and I had ten -- that there -- when but.
They're telling move my feet you know change directions makes it up and I listen to -- -- You think you know your takedown attempts is what really frustrated him and got him to not even attempt a shot the first two rounds.
Yeah I think that stuff.
Some that determined effort for him to shoot you know I know he -- one up on his back so I knew of take them attempts are fakes her.
Or whatever would it would definitely get a reaction -- so with a more just a kind of get a reaction -- -- -- as opposed to really trying to take him down I mean some of them might not want for some of them -- just -- now just trying to mix it up.
I had the opportunity to talk to Miguel Torres derive -- either Randy -- about your performance and everybody was just so so impressed.
You come away from that -- how do you feel what your next step should be.
I mean I don't outside stuff to really determine right now on pretty much you know -- going out to me COC as has decisions and they want to make enough.
