Thoughts on opponent, Jessamyn Duke? For me, Jessamyn Duke is an athlete with potential. She is young in the world of MMA and wants to make a career, but she has the misfortune to fight to me because I'm hungry for a piece of meat, like a lion! The UFC could have made this fight with anyone, but this time it is Jessamyn Duke who will satiate my hunger.
