He also acknowledges the tight spot he was in with the kneebar:
When they begin telling the background information on Nick and myself, they used footage of us training over time. Our fight was immediately after Pat and Cale Yarborough’s bout, which aired last week. I wish I could sit here and somehow blame me talking in third person on the editing, but CB can’t lie; CB pulled the “douche-bag card” out on national TV.
When he got me in the knee-bar, I was in trouble. I felt the knee ligaments stretching, and if I didn’t do something quickly, my chance at winning was going to be over. That was the only time he had me in serious trouble, but it was indeed serious.
In my mind I said, “He almost knee barred me.” And at that point I decided this was a tough fight and walking through Nick wasn’t going to happen. He was here to win the show, and if that meant tearing off my knee, he was down for it.
