I have good speed, timing, I can change my tempo and keep other strikers on their toes. With wrestlers, when they take me out of my element, they’re able to press that hugging game even when I bring it to a neutral it’s like I wasted a lot of extra power. [Now], I just have like a slightly different plan and formula going forward to address these problems that I’ve had most of my career with these f*cking wrestlers.”
