“I don’t know what the haters are trying to say, I just blanked it out, but they will be proven wrong once again.”
“This is life changing. That’s exactly what we planned and visualized, so we’re happy.”
When asked if Ngannou’s credit for the fight will be greater than his UFC wins, Martin added, “Oh my god. I mean by far. By multiples.
