“The first man to ever score knockouts in three weight divisions. I am very happy and very proud. Thank you all for your support,” he told The Sun.
“The UFC can strip fighters and give other fighters make believe belts in order to replicate my champ champ status.”
“But they can’t give knockout victories across multiple weight divisions so there you go again.”
