“He likes to not be friends with his opponents, especially if they’re working a program like that, because then he doesn’t feel guilty or anything for chopping the crap out of them and beating the crap out of them because his chops are brutal. I finally cornered him one night. I was like, ‘Why don’t you like me?’ He goes, ‘It’s not that I don’t like you,’ and he explained what I just said, and ever since that we were totally cool.”
