I've got nothing against Dominick, I have lot of respect for him – not that I didn't prior to us fighting. I have a lot of respect for him you know, and understanding of him. We've had a lot of conversations, we run into each other...I mean that night was just my night.
I feel like any night against Dominick Cruz will be my night, for sure."
