- Megan, I talked to DC. And DC said, I am a dream chaser. He said I had a long talk with [INAUDIBLE] Velasquez. He told me this is OK. He gave me the blessing for the fight. He said, I'm going to return to my original weight. I'm going to go out there. And I'm going to take out the baddest man on the planet. And not only that, I'm going to also still be a coach on Ultimate Fighter show. So he's amazingly stoked. And this a great opportunity for both guys.

- Absolutely.

- Now here ago, I thought that they were best buddies now, after they filmed in the "Clinch" together. But who knows? But I love that Stipe is putting it on the line as well. We have to give him some credit in this situation. I mean--

- Of course.

- Of course. Of course. It's going to be fantastic.
