“Beautiful! Stay nice and patient [and] relax. Breathe, okay? Let’s rinse that mouth, don’t swallow it, rinse it. Champ, beautiful work. Listen to me, all she wants to do is catch you with that left hand and come on top with that hook, okay? We’re feinting, we’re keeping both hands up. We’re feinting — a lot of feints when we’re pressing. We’re stepping ahead. A little bit quicker on the step-ahead. She gets frustrated, okay? Your left hook is massive there. It’s there — right hand, left hook, right hand! And then what you gotta do after you let your hands go, back to defense! Press, feint, press, press!* So we can get her where we want her. Once we get her on the cage … we need her on the cage this round and then we’re going to be good, okay? Beautiful. More discipline, more discipline, please let’s go you’re the champ! Discipline!”
