â€œPeople like to be on the side thatâ€™s winning … Theyâ€™re supportive when youâ€™re winning and critical when youâ€™re losing. I still get some sweet hate mails pretty regularly. There are some gyms with guys who begged me to come in there and train and do seminars before that fight and who wouldnâ€™t return my calls or talk to me afterwards.â€
â€œItâ€™s good. It separates people who are really supportive and back you from people that are just trying to jump on your wagon while youâ€™re successful … Such is life. Itâ€™s more a learning experience and I donâ€™t find it particularly motivational or that depressing, itâ€™s just learning how people are.â€
â€œIt was something Iâ€™m happy about … Iâ€™m glad Iâ€™m not fighting there and will be fighting independently where I want and for whoever wants to pay me.â€
