WE’RE headed into a new year. It’s going to be a hell of a year this year for not only myself but a lot of other fighters as well. There are a lot of things going on in the heavyweight division. The division is definitely alive, and I’m looking to claim it all.

I wish all the heavyweights in the division good luck on their up and coming journeys. And I definitely wish my opponent [Artur Szpilka] good luck on becoming the first Polish champion. That is something that has been a hard task to complete for many Polish guys.

He’s not the first to come. It’s going to be difficult for him as well, but I wish him luck. He should be proud that he made it this far, and got this opportunity. So I’m looking forward to January 16, to conquering the world.
