UFC Fight Night 216: What was said?

Jared Cannonier: “I’m pretty insensitive to the position I’m in.

“My goal is to get the title so I can get all the money associated with it and secure my future. The future of myself, my family, and that’s it.

“All attention, I don’t like fame. I don’t like people looking at me, smiling at me, wanting to suck all my energy, all those things.

“I would rather be rich than famous, and that is my goal. »
