What does it mean to you to be able to represent your country on the show?

I don't know. It's not my first time representing my country. I was in the amateur championship in Europe. I don't feel extra pressure on me because I’m representing my country. But it's cool when you are the only guy from your country. I think it's cool.

Why do you think you will be a fan favorite this season?   

I'm not sure they will like me.

What are your thoughts on Valentina Shevchenko?

She's amazing. She fights like a man. I don't feel like she really kicks like a man. I can tell when girls punch it's not hard but they’re different.
