Tybura on the difficulties of facing Rothwell

“It was crazy because the first round you always see what to expect from an opponent and I was pretty much sure I would witness some weird stuff, and I did! From the beginning, I was seeing that he was kinda slow. … I was seeing his punches that were coming, but he punches from different angles. In one hand, that was weird, but it was also a good experience.”

“Right before this fight I was thinking, of course, about getting someone from the top 10 and the big dream for me is the rematch with Derrick Lewis. He’s No. 7 right now, I wouldn’t be a bad matchup for him. I think I’ve grown from our first fight and I was winning the first two rounds with him. I know that’s his style, and he’s doing it with all the guys, but I’m pretty sure I’ve grown a lot and it would be a good matchup for me.”
