UFC: The middleweight division is so stacked. Do you ever look at the rankings and think about how daunting it is to climb to the top?
UH: You can’t look at yourself and say, “I guess I’m No. 12 because some people sat in a room and gave me a number.” I don’t believe in that. In my mind, I’m No. 1. If you ask any one of these individuals they’ll say the same.
Adesanya to me is someone I want to get to. If I have to play the politics card? Fine. He’s my trophy right now. He motivates me. I’ve been waiting for someone to light a fire under my ass. I have nothing bad to say about him, he’s awesome.
