I was the one who made the UFC go away, the one that broke the chain, the guy who got us into the UFC, the man that made it big, the UFC king, and the most important thing in my life: my daughter.
I’ve been fighting for 10 years, but it’s my time now.
I left the UFC last December, and then I left the promotion.
I had a lot of pressure, but when I got home, I just felt like I was done.
I wanted to go back and do my thing, do what I was good at, but I knew that wasn’t going to happen.
I knew that I was going to have to work to keep it going and be a good parent.
I thought, I’ll take a step back and try and figure out how I’m going to do it.
When I started working with my daughter, I saw how much of an impact she was having on my life, and how much she needed me.
I didn’t want to let her down.
It was tough, but after everything that I had gone through and been through, I wanted the best for my daughter and the best.
When you’re a parent, that’s what you want for your child.
When you think about the last year, it’s been rough.
I’m still in the hospital, I’m in the rehab.
My daughter is now in school and I’m taking care of her.
I am trying to figure out what I am going to be doing.
I don’t want her to be in a situation where she can’t focus on her schoolwork.
When she is doing homework, she wants to do them.
She is in class, but she’s not doing anything.
She needs me to be there for her.
When things are going well, I know she is going to get everything she wants out of it, and I want her not to have a bad day.
My daughter is 6.
I told her, ‘I’m not letting you go to school.’
I’m the one putting her through school, and she is learning, but not as well as she should.
I just don’t think she understands how hard it is to learn.
She didn’t get to see me for 10 days after I got hurt, so she hasn’t really had the opportunity to see how I feel.
I have to keep my focus and focus on my daughter because I know that if I let her go, she’s going to see a doctor that can see her and she’ll have a surgery.
I feel like I have a pretty good shot to make sure she’s healthy and not hurt again, and if it does happen, it’ll be a different day.
She doesn’t know what’s going on with me right now, so I’m just going to keep working.
It’s been hard, but hopefully I’ll get through this.
I want to be a champion.
I want to fight.
I know I have the ability to do so.
I understand the pressure, and it’s definitely different now than when I left.
It definitely felt different.
I was a little bit on edge, and now I know it’s not going to last long.
I was just so focused on making the UFC the best it can be, and just doing my best to do what was best for myself and my family.
I knew I had to get the job done.
But at the same time, I’ve had to make sacrifices for my family and myself to get where I am now.
I can’t complain, and that’s the hardest part.
I’ll just keep working and keep pushing myself and keeping my mind off things.
I think it’s just going in the right direction, I can see how it is working.
I got my daughter in school, so now she’s learning.
She’s starting to get a little closer to her friends, and seeing the people that she knows in school.
I think it shows how important it is for her to get to know the people she’s hanging out with, so it’s a positive thing.
It’s been a crazy few weeks.
I did get in a few fights, but there were just too many to count.
My first two fights in the UFC were pretty much the only ones that I fought.
The third fight was against somebody else, and my next two fights were against a guy who is now my opponent.
It wasn’t the best of my career.
I came in at 135 pounds and fought at 135.
I went out there and fought like a warrior.
I never thought I would go into this business and fight.
When the bell rings, I feel confident.
I put my hand up and say, ‘This is my last fight.’
I want everyone to know that I am the one fighting for the UFC.
If I get knocked out, I want everybody to know I’m okay.
I wouldn’t want my mom to go through
