“It’s definitely frustrating. I was upset, of course. But I’m going to keep on fighting. It could be a blessing in disguise with the other organizations out there. It’s like a three-year deal with the [‘The Ultimate Fighter’] and all. I think they can release you whenever they want. So yeah, they kind of let me go.
I thought the whole thing was blown out of proportion. I just said, ‘What goes around comes around,’ kind of meaning about the double standards. Not meaning anything bad. I guess they kind of took it the wrong way, but I didn’t mean anything bad by it. I don’t regret [making the comments] at all. I don’t know if [the UFC is] looking for an excuse to get me out of there or what. The comments were nothing.
Hopefully I didn’t leave on a bad note. I wouldn’t mind fighting for them again. Right now, first things first, is just to find another fight — hopefully in a major organization — and get back out there. Keep on the lookout. There should be something big in the next couple weeks about where I’m going.”
