I THINK A LOT OF PEOPLE WOULD ASSUME THAT I WOULD LOSE THAT FIGHT AND WHEN YOU GET AN ARGUMENT LIKE THAT WHERE PEOPLE REALLY DON’T KNOW WHO IS GOING TO WIN, THAT’S WHEN THE MONEY IS CREATED. THAT’S WHEN YOU GET THE MAIN STREAM, GENERAL PUBLIC WANTING TO TUNE INTO THIS FREAK SHOW, RIGHT? THE LITTLE GUY VERSUS THIS MONSTER.”
