After the match he said: “I know this game, I don’t just play this on EA Sports, I play this for real, so when I do this, I know what I’m talking about.
“I still have to watch it again, little bit sloppy, but I’m a dog and I do what I do
“I still don’t like him. I don’t know him personally, I don’t wish he dies or anything, he’s alive, I let him be alive
This is the game we play, this is violence and I told you guys that it was going to be violent and I said it, it’s going to be violent and it’s going to end fast and that’s what I did. I’m fresh, I can go next weekend, I can go anytime.
“I want to spend time with my family because it’s been a crazy year, so I want to go spend time with my people.
“Cannonier, I want Cannonier next.”
