And then not now either. -- -- oh yeah and notice. Where you're one of the best game planners and MMA or any sport for that matter you always seem to execute however you've been criticized for a lack of action. In some of your fights do you take that personally or is winning the only thing that matters to you. Now you -- you know you try to win as the main thing but you know it's. And then to criticize that criticism is always there and -- want to finish my there's nobody more no Wheldon myself -- to finish right. But I've been working on different stuff than I can't wait to fight again you know it's it's like doesn't always happen at them that the way you want.

Where you're quite familiar with another nor cal based fighter in this one this guard Josh 'cause check. He's second on Mike pierce you've said that you wouldn't fight Josh again -- there's nothing left to -- but what happens if you're still hold that title. And he works his way back into the title contention. We'll fight again -- -- Do you feel like you're on at once -- way and I thought when. Do you feel like there's a rush for you to get back and start -- -- are you gonna make sure that knee is a 100%. Before even thinking about taking anyone on. I feel rushed to come back and fight but. That's the worst thing I can do we actually. Led the fight to him and yet I was come back stronger and better.
