It’s official. I will face Karolina Kowalkiewicz April 7 in Brooklyn NY on #ufc223 I’m super pumped because I’ve been asking to face a top 10 fighter for a while but keep getting the toughest fighters just out of the top 10. This is the match up I asked for. ask and you shall receive. I’m excited to show people what I can do against a step up in competition . I’m well aware that I will be the underdog in this fight which is ok with me. I’ve been the underdog most of my career and I thrive off of it. Bring it on. I’ll be ready
