"I would like to avenge some defeats that I've had," he said. "I'm better than anyone I've ever lost to. I'd like to have the opportunity to go out and prove that I'm better than the people I lost to."
"In order for the fight to be done in the time we had for it to be done, that's the weight we had to fight at," Garcia said. "At the end of the day, I feel like this is still a fight that the fans want to see. This is still a big fight no matter with the belts or without the belts."
