What are you looking for in a fighter when you're look for a young fighter?
Mike: I want to look far guy similar to me.
A guy that wants to be somebody in his life.
Maybe an insecure guy, maybe people don't respect his family, he wants respect.

Something to prove.
Mike: No.
That he wants to hurt somebody.
I want somebody that, you know, because that's war is.
War is destruction of the enemy or total surrender.
One or the other.
I want somebody who believes in that theory of fighting.
People can win fights.
People can win fights and have long range but if they're not exciting, it doesn't mean anything.
I can -- a guy made $100 million in two years, but if a guy has long range, he was champion for 20 years and people don't care to see him.
Fighting is about entertainment, it's show business, you have to be the most entertaining fighter.
